It hasn't aged kindly, it feels goofy and the effects are dated. Still, the performances make it worthwhile and its influence is felt to this day.

Donner and co practically invented the cinematic vocabulary for comic book films with Superman, especially for scenes where heroes demonstrate their powers, but unlike most of their successors they make it work because they believe in the material, and Reeves really was perfect in the role of the likeable adonis with super stength. It's.cheesy and dumb at times and perhaps overlong, but it has scope and an impressively uncluttered use of widescreen that modern directors could learn from.

The O.G. superhero pop-culture icon, "Superman" altered the course of human history with this film. However unlike saving "Louis Lane", he didn't have to reverse time to become the trail-blazing hero we know him as today. Richard Donner's film set the cinematic standard for the entire superhero genre with this blockbuster smash. Despite the dated special effects and cheesy nature of the film, it remains one of best representations of the core themes and feelings behind the iconic "Superman".

!? This one gets talked up as the really good Superman movie, but it doesn't function as a movie? The visual storytelling is confusing - the "spin around the Earth to turn back time" scene is the tip of the iceberg. The non-visual storytelling is confusing - oddly edited and thematically incoherent. The characterization is weak - Christopher Reeve is great but gets little to work with, Gene Hackman is an unfunny joke and I'm sorry. There's good parts, but it's a weird and not cohesive whole.

What an utter delight this movie is. I had to take off a few points for the absurd ending, but honestly the fact that the movie somehow hadn't jumped the shark by that point is staggering in itself. Christopher Reeve is wonderful in every scene.

Went in expecting something better than Man of Steel. I can't say it delivered. Reeve is a good choice for superman, but I wasn't really blown away by anyone else. Like the reboot, this film is long and I wasn't overly impressed. Some of the plot points are idiotic.

Some good ideas and certainly some iconic scenes, but overall too long and too messy. The plot meanders and there's no chemistry between Lois and Clark (she totally ignores his advances) or between Lois and Superman (she making mooncalf eyes at him from the first moment). Lex Luthor and his henchman and henchwoman as combined villains and comic relief are just a mistake. If I wanted to see a megalomaniac get twarted by his sidekick I'd have watched Pinky and the Brain instead.
