Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Anyone who has been following the Superman saga will find this installment enjoyable enough, but some of the magic is missing. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Putting its emphasis on broad comedy at the expense of ingenious plotting and technical wizardry, it has virtually none of the mythic or cosmic sensibility that marked its predecessors. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 12, 2010

Rotten: It's a cinematic comic book, shallow, silly, filled with stunts and action, without much human interest. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Slow and uninspired. – Jamie Woolley,, Nov 2, 2004

If you like have someone poop on your face then this movie is for YOU.

I enjoy this movie

The thought that we get to see another side to superman is cool. It's almost like Bizzaro.

I get it!

I get all the hate for the movie! I do! I can understand! But give it a chance! It's fun to watch. It's hilarious. This film has the best effects of the series. It is campy and if you are not a movie apologist like I am it is highly illogical. Give it a chance!
