Superman returns (2006)

PLOT:
As the title suggests: the man returns from space. Only things have changed: Lois engaged and a mom + no-one even notices him at the daily planet. Poor guy. But someone who has not forgotten him: his former foe, Lex Luther (evil guy). Lex gets it in his mind to recreate the world as we know it! Sound like a man with a plan! Will Superman save us? Or is he too troubled to get there in time …

CAST:

A new man for the title role, Brandon Routh. Not bad (my humble opinion) for the part and even a resemblance to our so loved Christopher Reeves. Plus I will admit (being a woman) he is easy on the eyes. No seriously, I liked him as Superman/Clark Kent. By casting a lesser known actor for the part, Bryan Singer (X-Men) put the focus on the character, rather than the actor.

Then there’s Kate Bosworth (known from Blue Crush) as the lovely Lois Lane. I was surprised to see her in the part, but she played a very mature and convincing Lois. Again, well cast.

And then, mister Evil Guy: Kevin Spacey. I loved him in American Beauty (and loathed him in K-Pax – 2 hours I will never get back). He was funny and pretty evil as Luther. Being the enemy comes naturally to him.

MY OPINION:

Good movie. Visuals are very well done. For that alone, you should go watch it. I really liked this movie and have seen it several times now. It’s entertainment.
