Atom User Reviews for Superman (1978)
Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. This movie still holds up.
As tired as we are now of origins, Superman set the gold standard for such stories.
Estimates of the movie's costs range between $35-and $70-million; whatever the price, it was not too much to pay. As gods go, Superman is one of the godliest; his movie is one of the best.
Superman is a pure delight, a wondrous combination of all the old-fashioned things we never really get tired of: adventure and romance, heroes and villains, earthshaking special effects, and -- you know what else? Wit.
