A classic of its era, this is how a Superman movie should be done. Sure the effects and costumes are showing there age but the story and acting still craps on the bloated piles of garbage other superman movies have been of late. Just enjoy a damn good flick.

It is a great movie, it made me chuckle a few times at how they made the old movies.. Fun and enjoyable and recommended if you just love the 70's and 80's movies... Though as good as this movie is, I would not buy this movie that cost more than Superman Returns

The "S" could be "S"uperman, or a well-disguised etymologic "S"atan. Even superman's story resembles Ol' Nick being vanquished from heaven - I mean exile from Krypton. Fancy name for a masquerade.
