I watched Superman Returns again last night, and I think Routh is amazing in the role, especially given what he had to work with. He honours the performance and character of Reeve, while making it his own by expanding what came before. He had so many wonderful moments as both Clark and Superman, and captured it all with grace and charisma.
I'm with T'Baio here.

Any complaints about Routh's performance may be blamed in large part on the screenwriters for Superman Returns. Routh didn't have two continuous minutes of memorable dialogue anywhere in the film, and it is not his fault.
I don't know. One of the things that I think hurt Superman Returns was Routh was not acting at all. Instead, he was simply doing a Christopher Reeve impression.
