Return of the King of Superheroes
I just got back from seeing Superman Returns tonight, and I must say, with all the hype and pressure upon it to deliver the goods, it does all that and more.
Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth are excellently cast, and Kevin Spacey is perfect as Luthor. But a surprise favorite character for me, is the little boy (Tristan Lake Leabu) that plays Lois' son. He was great.
The sound was also excellent. I especially loved the flying sounds. It was very smooth, almost "transparent" sounding. The whole sound package is marvelous. I will be surprised if this movie doesn't get at least an Oscar nomination, if not the win for best sound.
