Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel returns to Earth in a new chapter in the powerful saga of one of the world's best-loved superheroes. While dealing with an old enemy's plot to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, has moved on with her life. Or has she?

Similar to Hackman, it is Spacey who spices up the movie every time he appears. Given the charm-less, humour-less performance of Routh in this overdrawn two-and-a-half hour movie, I would have nodded off to sleep if not for Spacey. All Routh managed to achieve here is a bad impersonation of Christopher Reeve's Clark Kent and Superman. Anyhow, u will enjoy catching da adventurous journey throughout the show and there is one unexpected part wher superman almost dies of drowning...

Verdict: Watch this in all its glory on the big screen. Superman is back and here to stay.
