      At last, someone returns to the heart and soul of the original Superman of 1978, with minor improvements to special effects and setting. This movie could not have been made as is back in 1978. It is a Superman for this generation and I am pleased with its arrival. A sequel should come of this, and hopefully more movies to keep the franchise going strong. Maybe this time, the production people and the writers will not get tired and lapse into campiness.

      Superman returns to earth after a five-year road trip to the remains of his homeworld of Krypton, to find


      that life has moved on without him. Lois has a child of around five and is married. She has written an article on why we don’t need Superman anymore. Surely this must hurt the Man of Steel. But he has no time to dwell on such domestic trivialities. Not when his archenemy Lex Luthor, deliciously played by Kevin Spacey, finds a new use for Kryptonite. Still bent on the real estate issue started back in Superman, The Movie and Superman II (remember when he became the ruler of Australia briefly?), Lex proposes to raise some land of his own off ...

      • the coast of the U.S., in the Atlantic. Not much, but most of the U.S. Would have to be moved aside to make room for Lex’s new land made from Kryptonite.

        The final sequences has Lois and her son kidnapped by Lex and taken to his new empire, beginning its growth just like the Fortress of Solitude grew out of the frozen north. Being around so much Kryptonite makes battling Luthor a difficult task. Will the Man of Steel prevail or would Luthor finally succeed?

        Exciting graphics brought this movie to life in the same way that Gotham City had been brought

        to life for Batman Begins. I think with today’s technology, superhero movies have finally hit their stride. But one word of advice to the filmmakers: Special effects and computer technology aside, if you don’t come in with a good story to hang all those fancy effects baubles on, you will fail. Let Batman Begins, Spiderman and Superman Returns teach you something about that. I place Superman Returns almost up there with Superman I and II. The only thing missing was the late and great Christopher Reeve, but I know he, as I, would be proud of Superman Returns. Indeed, he has.
