Shane, Isipingo Beach. 1 December 2006

Bryan Singer delivered a truly epic adventure and succeeded in awakening a long dormant franchise with the kind of re-boot it so dearly needed.

Unfortunately, we here in S.A are let down by NuMetro with a Movie Only dvd release. You should do yourself a favour and order the 2 Disc Collector's edition from Take 2's import service, or if you're an uber fan like me, get the Ultimate Collector's Kryp-Tin.

There is a very comprehensive Making Of documentary for Superman Returns that spans a whopping 3 hours. There's also special features on the second disc that pertains to how Brando's footage was resurrected for this new film.

From a technical perspective, both the Audio and Video are Excellent, with the video falling just a tad bit short of near perfect. Superman Returns was shot digitally, so the transfer to DVD was incredible, but, the picture looks a little soft and lacks sharpness. This is a minor aspect to moan about, but definitely does'nt distracy from the picture as a whole. The imagery and night/darker shots are stunning.

The Dolby mix is an earth shattering experience to behold. It's very aggressive, but becomes increasingly intense as the film progresses. The scene with the burning 747 will definitely become a reference point for DVD's that you want to demo to your mates.
Although mixed at the inferior 384kbps as opposed to 448kbps, the mix is very aggressive and will no doubt give your Home Theatre a good solid workout.

All in all, Superman Returns is a brilliant film which everyone should have in their collection, even if you're not a fan of the film, the DVD is an audiophile's dream come true. It's just a real pity that we here in S.A got shafted with a bare bones release of what should've been a real gem of a DVD.

Being the moviefan I am, I absolutely loved this film, but the dvd... Its the worst dvd for one of the best movies, the movie and thats it, no special features, no directors commentry... comeon, this is a crap deal, Any of the X-men dvd's=a better deal.

You'll believe a man can whine! This movie was originally supposed to be called Superman Whines but they changed it at the last minute. I think the original heading was much more appropriate! If you wanna see Superman whining and flying around crying like a lame a$$ dick, then get this. Lois Lane could've been played by a cardboard cutout of the old Lois and it would've been a more believable performance. The only action scene worth mentioning was the plane scene. Nothing makes sense in this movie. They should've taken a page out of Smallville. We want a relevant version! Lex Luther is still obsessed with real estate. C'mon! That ruler of the world mentality is so out of date! Lex Luther is evil but believes he's the hero. Thats such a cool dynamic they never got to explore. Superman is the strongest hero there is but he comes off looking like the weakest wimp in this. He went to find Krypton. Nothing was even shown regarding this. what a waste of space. Superman gets stabbed with a little piece of Krypton and he is almost powerless but he manages to carry an entire continent of Kryptonite into space. what nonsense!!! I am a comic collector and follow the Superman mythos very closely. This is a joke! This movie is an absolute joke! Christopher Reeves will remain the best movie Superman in my mind! This movie is like a good whine. It gets worse with every viewing!
