Action adventure

Kevin Spacey: Lex Luthor, Superman's number one enemy
Parker Posey: Catherine (Kitty) Kowalski, Lex’s associate
Eva Marie Saint: Martha Kent, Superman’s surrogate mother
Brandon Routh: Clark Kent, reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper and Superman
Sam Huntington: Jimmy Olsen, the paper’s copy boy
Kate Bosworth: Lois Lane, Pulitzer Prize winning reporter
Tristan Leabu: her son Jason
James Marsden: her fiancé Richard White
Frank Langella: Perry White, Editor-in-Chief
Marlon Brando: Jor-El, Superman's biological father

There are few movies that warrant a running time beyond two hours. This is not one of them. Despite the fact there is lots of action almost from the get-go, better editing would eliminate some of the dull parts that drag on too long and you wind up having to sit through a 2½-hour film.

As a new twist to the story, we see that Superman has a romantic side to him and has to deal with relationships while “saving the world”. It’s a lot to ask of anybody.

for some intense action violence.
