In fairness to Smith, he wasn't really given a free reign to do what he probably wanted to do. He was told to put various, occasionally bizarre, things in the script by Jon Peters.

My problem with the script wasn't so much the plot devices that were force on him, but the dialogue. IMO he didn't change his style enough to make it appropriate to a Superman film.
