I thought that this would be a boring movie. What more stories would you have for Superman after all these years? Especially after great action hero movies that we have seen lately (Spiderman, X-Men, even Batman). Turns out this movie opens up a whole new story line for future Superman movies.
The battle between Lex Luthor and Superman is back. It makes sense why Lex Luthor is making a come back after prison (don't remember what happened before prison story and how he got in prison). The old Superman has always been a social person. He blends more to society as Superman better than the rest of action heroes. Which is why the court also includes him in the Luthor trial. When he didn't come, Luthor is a free man.
Now Lois on the other hand is a bit more tamed than I imagined she would be. But I guess everyone grows up after years of separation from their close ones. Plus she has a son to look after now. What I would like to know is how, when, and where (I think I might know the why question) she spent the night with Superman. Before the piano incident, I still thought that Jason is really Richard's son. The thought crossed my mind that it could be Superman's but that's the basic story line for every movie and I thought this one would be different. I really hope that the next movies are not going to be about "Father and Son Superhero Protecting The Earth." One Superman is enough for one earth.
But I did enjoy the movie because it showed a lot of emotions between Lois and Superman. I was trying to see if there will ever be a conclusion of their relationship instead of staring into each other's eyes wondering what each is really thinking. The movie's got a bit of a romantic taste in it. Imagine yourself being the most powerful human being on earth (physic-wise) and the one thing that you can't have is to be with the person you really care about. Must be real sad. Plus in Superman's case you must bear with that person everyday kissing some other guy and having your son call that person "Dad." I have a soft spot for romance and I say go get her Superman. You protect the whole round earth everyday so you deserve to have someone care for you even just for a few minutes of your time in between the rescue efforts and working at the Daily Planet. Everybody needs a hero. Who's your hero Superman?
