I remember the week before SR, I saw that weeks episode of At The Movies with David and Margaret (kind of Australia's Ebert and Siskel). I'll never forget when David said "Leading man Brandon Routh seems to have undergone some sort of charisma bypass surgery". Then called the film a 'joyless' experience.
I do not want history repeating itself.
I thought that Routh did fairly well as Superman and Clark Kent, in one or two scenes his dialogue delivery was flat, otherwise he was a good choice.
