I think I belong to a rather small group of people who liked Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns; perhaps my limited knowledge of this Superhero’s mythology allowed me to see pass any expectations/inaccuracies and just enjoy the film.
The story flowed and the pacing of the film was good, and the action pieces were engaging and entertaining. But mostly I loved the film for the great art direction by art/production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas, ( below left ) in particular the look and design of Jor-El’s Fortress Of Solitude.
(above) There’s an entire opening sequence cut from the final film with Superman returning to earth in his crystaline starship.
