40 years after it's release, Christopher Reeve remains the best Superman portrayal ever.
The definitive superhero/comic book adaptation ever; Christopher Reeve is the ONLY Superman and a DynamicDuo w/Margot Kidder as Lois Lane; John Williams' iconic score is the definition of the word ROUSING
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.
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.
There's no doubt that it's a flawed movie, but it's one of the most wonderfully entertaining flawed movies made.
