I refused to see any attempt at a Superman flick after the Reeve era had ended. It just wasn't right you know? But I saw the trailers for this one and said to myself "hott damn Lizz, this looks bananas" so I broke my own rule and went to check this sucker out.
Whoa people, just whoa. They done did my favorite superhero right! Yes, there is always some bitchy complaint any supernerd could make, but overall, this was one hell of a movie. I mean this puppy was EPIC!
I'm normally not a fan of Russell Crowe, but boy did Jor-El justice in this role. And I don't know what's going on, but Kevin Costner is stepping up his acting game like crazy these days. I've never been so impressed by two baby-daddys before! Nice work boys!
Unfortunately, no matter how great this film was, they still can't manage to make Lois Lane likable. Girlfriend annoys the hell out of me. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I just cannot stand the character. I suppose the fact that every actress that has ever played her has kept me feeling this way, is a testament to their ability to portray her in such an annoying way. Nice job ladies.
If you like classic comic book stories, action on an epic scale and big, big movies, this is one for you! I will say, if you're someone who isn't a fan of loud noises, explosions and a shit-ton of destruction, you might want to skip this one.
