Cinema - Superman Returns

What an age we live in! Superman is now boring.

 The Man of Steel is so one-dimensional, say some. No layers to his soul - say others. Where is the inner conflict of a Batman or a Spiderman? His weak point is that he has no weak points.

So, the Hollywood gurus had to bring in someone cerebral like Bryan Singer and compel him to attach a psychological conflict to the Superman psyche. It just doesn't work.

Finally caught up with the movie after a lot of missed chances. Just wasn't able to get involved. I even chuckled when the bullet bounces of Superman's retina. The climax seems to drag on a bit. The casting is quite appropriate though. No complaints there. Just too subdued to be a superhero movie.
