About this movie

Academy Award-winners Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman head an all-star cast in the fantastic, action-packed film that made Christopher Reeve an international star playing the greatest superhero of all time. From the doomed planet of Krypton, two parents launch a spaceship carrying their infant son to earth. Here he grows up to become Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for the Metropolis Daily Planet. But with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, he battles for truth and justice as Superman.

It's a really good movie, although it does lack the action that Man Of Steel would deliver to us 35 years from the release of this movie in 1978, it excels in a really good well thought out plot, story, acting, and special effects for its time. One thing I'll say is that Christopher Reeve is the iconic Clark Kent and an exceptional Superman, but Henry Cavill is the iconic Superman and an exceptional Clark Kent.

If you wanna see superman on the big screen then watch Man Of Steel. This movie just wasn't good at all, and every companion movie to this was just as bad

Good but just not for me. Too goofy, plus the special effects are kinda ya know old and everything. It's a lil bit talky too, at the beginning. Just not my type of movie, but if u like it, I totally understand.
