Default Re: What's So Bad About Superman Returns?

I just rewatched the film and it wasn't bad. Yet there were two apsects that really hindered the movie.

Kevin Spacey gave an amazing performance, but I don't think Lex Luthor worked well in this film. That character works better in long-arcing stories, where he might also be pulling the strings of super-powered villains to oppose Superman. In a 2.5 hr film, there just isn't enough time to show the level of genius it takes to oppose a nearly invulnerable hero.

Superman's appearance came off as dated and silly. The costume was so tight that Routh looked skinny and the coloring looked like it belonged on the Adam West Batman series.
