And it's about damn time!
I saw SR today with some of the UMBC Mafia. A good time was had by all. Clocking in at 2 hrs and 45 minutes one might think it would be hard to sit through.
I had no problem. I could go see it again right now and enjoy it immensely.
Brandon Routh-so much like Christopher Reeve it's scary
Kate Bosworth-a good Lois Lane
Kevin Spacey-EXCELLENT Lex Luthor
The writing-well done.
The directing-pretty slick
The Special Effects-up to one's expectations
The Train Layout! Very nice!!! Too bad it gets trashed.
The needs a bit of tweaking:
Frank Langella as Perry White. Fair, I had to wait through most of the movie for him to say, "GREAT CEASAR'S GHOST!" He could have been a bit more over the top like someone from a Howard Hawks movie or James Cagney in One, Two, Three. Give me some rapid fire orders. I expect to hear that staccato dialogue from a newspaper editor.
The guy who played Kumar from Harold and Kumar go to White Castle. Give him a line!!! Please!
Editing. While the film did pass by quickly, I did think they dwelled a bit on some parts and could have trimmed the fat and increased the pace.
The Train Layout! You MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! DAMN YOU! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!
Still, go see it. It's worth the price of admission and it's definitely going to be joining the DVD collection when it comes out.
