Wow "Superman Returns" was awesome!

The special effects were great and the story line was interesting.

I was pleasantly surprised that Brandon Routh did Superman justice or should I say Christopher Reeve justice.

I prefer Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor rather than Gene Hackman. Kevin brought across a more kniving, calculated Lex whereas Gene seemed more psycho.

I highly recommend, at least, watching the first Superman prior to seeing this new one. You will see how they made a concerted effort to bring them all together.

It also helps that this was a free movie and free concessions through work contacts. Mini Red loved wearing a VIP pass. Every so often through the movie she would whisper, "I'm a VIP!"
