Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to Earth in the epic action-adventure, Superman returns, a soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the world's most beloved superheroes.

While an old enemy plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman (Brandon Routh) faces the heartbreaking realisation that the woman he loves, Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bitter-sweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space.

Theatrical report

Cool! I really liked watching Superduperman returns. It was fun, it was deep, it was intriguing. Even the obvious bits (like when the hero dies before the end of the film) were worth watching. Brandon Routh is no Christopher Reeve (although he does do a great impersonation) and it's not until the fight scenes near the end of the film that you get to see the 10 kilos of extra muscle. If you have a thing for men in tights (with their underwear on the outside) then Superman returns gives you some big bang for your bucks but it'll never be an all-time classic.
