It really does feel like the first time Superman has been done justice in live action.
See, sheer idiocy like this is the reason not to trust this review. The Reeve version made a generation believe a man could fly. The wire take-offs and landings were breathtaking throughout all 4.
That was not even the best landing he ever did.
I remember around the time of "The Movie" reading that the effects people said Reeve was a natural on the pole-arm or whatever it was called. The realism of the flying effect had to do as much with him as the technology.
(Routh didn't really do it for me as Supes, no matter how good the effects shots were. Since then I've come to dislike his other work as well.)
I'm really looking forward to seeing if Cavill can pull it off. The trailers look promising.
