|Clark hitting the Superman II reset button.|
|A little Super Afternoon Delight.|
|"Son, what happened to your hair?"|
|“I learned to make these in prison.”|
|His continent is rather small and a bit of a shit hole.|
|“Is the the place to audition for Newsies?“|
• No one wonders why Clark never answered emails or phone calls for those five years that Superman was off in space.
• On the farm Clark Kent’s dog wants to play fetch, Clark throws ball into the next county. What a dick.
• Whines, “I’m still Superman!” as he gets his ass kicked by Lex Luthor. This is not a very heroic moment.
• Superman lands and walks around on an island made of kryptonite and does not notice this fact until he is punched.
• Space Jesus
|Seriously, no more Christ metaphors.|
So as a loving tribute to a classic seventies superhero movie it kind of drops the ball, and as a stand-alone Superman movie it’s saddled with too much baggage for it to work, but Bryan Singer is still a talented director and at no point are you bored during this film. Also Superman never kills anyone during it’s entire running time so it does have that over certain other men of steel.
