"Your name is Kal-El. You are the only survivor of the planet Krypton. Even though you've been raised as a human, you are not one of them. You have great powers, only some of which you have as yet discovered."

In many ways, 1978's Superman ushered in the superhero movie subgenre, demonstrating that filmmaking technology had finally advanced far enough to convincingly realise comic b... read more

Classic!

This was really thrilling. It is the first official superhero film and that is why it is called the classic superhero film. I did really like this film but I dont really like Superman/Clark Kents character because he isnt only a hero but he doesnt really have a personal slide in his personality like heroes like Batman and Spider-Man have. I dont think the name nor costume are catchy at all but I d... read more

One of the all time great super-hero movies

“Superman may be corny and cheesy to some people, but for those who grew up with it it is as original and as exciting as it was 30+ years ago. The spectacle of the film is terrific, the cinematography is wonderful and the special effects are dazzling. In terms of effective scenes, the scenes with Clark and Lois are cute and don't take up too much of the film or harm it in any way, while the confrontation between him and Lex Luthor is suitably bright and breezy and the opening is wonderfully elegiac. The score's main theme is iconic and just superb, John Williams has done some wonderful scores before, this score is no exception. The direction is innovative and the script is sophisticated enough. I also much enjoyed the acting. Christopher Reeve is perfectly cast as Clark/Superman while Gene ” read more

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (50 movies items)

"In light of today’s fixation on “dark” superhero tales, Richard Donner’s fidelity to the DC comics plays as positively unfussy and wholesome in retrospect. But like its 21st century brethren, this is no B-movie cheapie — it’s a $55 million, franchise-launching behemoth that employed Oscar winners Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman, as well Godfather scribe Mario Puzo, to make you believe a man could fly. As epitomized by Christopher Reeve’s throwback movie-star charisma, there’s more"
