I won’t go into the fact that no one can replace the sheer awesomeness that was Christopher Reeve as Superman because seriously, no one can outdo him.
Let me just jump into the movie overall and say the use of CGI was excessive. So much so that the movie would have been fine as a computer animated film with the cast doing voice-overs. It was wildly underwhelming.
I am not familiar with the origins of Superman in detail, but I don’t think there was enough build-up of his foundation. Everything felt so incomplete. Superman came off as a weakling with no personality. Definitely not someone I’d look up to or aspire to be.
Skip this if you hold the movies from the 70s and 80s on a pedestal because this is probably only a little bit better than Superman Returns.
