Is there a more recognizable theme than the Superman theme? John Williams knocked another one out of the park in 1978 for the original Superman film, and then was fired from the franchise in the Richard Donner purge. And yet his themes appeared in the next 3 films in that franchise. And it, and the Lois Lane love theme, are back in "Superman Returns", even though he does not get credited with "music".

If anyone deserves a Superman lovechild it's John Williams. He's been getting screwed by Superman for 26 years.

That aside, this film is surprisingly better than critics would have you believe. Routh does a decent Christopher Reeve imitation, and depth is provided by the love triangle (quadrilateral, if you throw in Clark Kent), and the Christ analogy (as Marlon Brando wheezes, "I sent them my only son", we see Superman floating high above the earth, arms outstretched, listening as the world pleas for a savior). The plot itself is no more or less than what we would expect, with the evil real estate agent Lex Luthor on the loose.

Although I saw the Christopher Reeve movies years ago, I remember little about them, and never liked them very much. I watched every episode of Lois and Clark the tv series, waiting for those two to get it together, which they never did, and content to admire Dean Cain in the meantime.

I watched this expecting little, and was more than pleasantly surprised.

Brandon Routh plays Superman, a relative unknown and so comes with no baggage, but a pair of smouldering eyes, a jaw-droppingly handsome face (no soap opera here thank you very much), and a perfect physique. He is just right in this role, and while I'd read in reviews that his acting isn't great I have to disagree: there was such quiet loneliness, such yearning and soul in his portrayl, I ached for him. He was not just eye-candy (though he's that too), he had the charisma and intensity necessary in a leading role, and I really felt for him (something I've not for any previous Superman actor).

Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane was unrecognisable - I had no idea she was the blonde lead from Blue Crush until the credits rolled at the end! Lois is a difficult character to make human, but her conflicting emotions and her own sacrifices came across clearly yet subtly. She's also tough and intelligent, and you can see why Superman loves her.

James Marsden as her fiance (they were not married, as a previous reviewer says), is heroic in his own way, and a sympathetic character, without either stealing anything from the main guy or being emasculated. It would have been way too easy to have made him unlikable, and a coward, but making him strong, kind, considerate etc. helps highlight Lois' difficult position.

I was extrememly excited when this movie was announced, but I must say that the film topped even my high expectations. Here, Superman returns to a world that doesn't need him. He's isolated. He's alone. And nobody loves him. I was intrigued by the way Superman became, through the course of this movie, a much more individualist hero. His fight is both with the villans that despise him and with the society that has moved on without him. Aside from the fact that the score was unbelievable -- and had nice echoes of the old John Williams scores --, the special effects are subtly done, and integrated nicely to the movie. Well done, Mr. Singer. I'm anticipating the sequel.

I was more excited to see Superman Returns than I usually am for a film like this because it is a continuation of a franchise that I loved as a kid. If you haven't seen Superman The Movie and/or Superman II but you are planning on seeing Superman Returns then I also recommend watching the originals. I say that because they will probably enhance your appreciation of the new film. Superman Returns has a new story, but the way this film is linked together with the originals in regard to the father and son relationships is extraordinary. There are also references in Superman Returns to the comics and the Max Fleischer cartoons of the 1940's.

The Story:

Superman has been gone for 5 years, yet nobody but his adopted mother knows where he went or why he left. The world has moved on. Once he returns he finds a world that is in worse shape than he left it. Lex Luthor has machinations on another real-estate plan, this time using Superman's crystal technology stolen from the Fortress of Solitude. And Lois Lane is engaged and a mother. Yet unlike most everyone else she is not too thrilled to see Superman return as she is still hurt by the fact that he left her without ever saying good-bye. The end is not a happy one, but rather bittersweet instead. And there is one incredibly heart-wrenching scene in particular when Superman confronts Lex and his henchman that is almost too emotional to watch.

Despite the fact that Superman is an alien, Earth's protector seems at times more human in spirit in this film than ever before. In Superman Returns Kal-El has to let go of Jason, his only son, for the sake of his sons well-being. And the best he can do is be a light from afar rather than the father at hand.
