Superman Returns

June 27, 2006: “Superman Returns” - Full Review (Spoilers)

By Jeffrey Bridges

This is, quite easily, the best Superman movie ever made.

I say that not to disparage other movies, which I certainly love, but nothing has ever reached this level before. Ever.

This is also, quite easily, the best superhero movie ever made.

None has ever been truer to the characters, had a more moving story, or literally let you see the comic books spring to life. You will see things that have never been seen on film before, things that no one else can do.

This is a job for Superman.

I would also rank this in the highest echelon of movies. Not just Superman movies or comic book movies or even action movies. It's one of the best movies ever made.

Let me give you some perspective on this, lest you think I'm some gushing fanboy (which I am now, but I wasn't before seeing the film).

Having followed the repeated, failed attempts to get a Superman movie off the ground in the past decade and being well aware of what could have been, I had reached a point where I wished no Superman movie would be made simply because I feared the resulting travesty that much.
