    Dan O'Neill80 - With an extra bit of attention to the heart and soul of its title character, Superman Returns works both as a silly, yet exciting superhero flick, as well as a tender look at the loneliness these kinds of characters embody.

    Steve Habrat50 - A tighter runtime, a different actor in the iconic tights, and maybe a different antagonist would have really made American fall back in love with the Man of Steel.
