Ok so I saw this thing yesterday....and....I hated it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Superman. I've watched all the the Christopher Reeve versions and even watched the Lois and Clark tv series a few years back. But I got to say that outside of the special effects, the movie was pretty flat leaving me most of the time to say "ok...next". The plot/storyline was just so blah. I was bored for half the movie. I hated that they cast a 23 year old to be a mom of a 5 year old kid, which btw was pretty dumb especially since when you think of Lois Lane, you think of a tough, ball-busting, take-no-$hit newswoman...Lois isn't supposed to me a mom figure if you ask me. I liked Brandon Routh as Clark but as Superman, he was m'eh...just ok. I dunno. I guess he was too young for me too. To make matters worse, they give him a son?!?!?!?! wtf? I think it was such a wrong move since the allure of Superman is the sadness that he isn't "one of us" and will never be able to enjoy such things in life as romance and family because of the duties he has to the world. Now he's a dad??? Don't get me started on the plot holes- if I remember correctly, at the end of Superman II, Clark/Superman kisses Lois making her forget the time they had spent together and the fact that he was Superman...sooooo how in the world did she allow herself to continue with a pregnancy where she doesn't remember the conception? She figures it's Superman's kid, but did she remember they had sex? Plus how does the kid have powers if when he was conceived, Clark was human and NOT Superman??? I don't know. This movie just disappointed me in so many ways. I did like the score and some of the action sequences but without a good story all you have is a $250 million fireworks show. Maybe it's just me.
