Superman (Richard Donner, 1978)

***½
USA



It's 50 minutes into the movie by the time Superman gets to fly - and roughly 45 of these are redundant - but it picks up significantly thereafter (even if Lois Lane's out-of-body love poem is still to come). It's a tack-fest but it's very enjoyable, and for having pretty much spawned the mammoth-budget superhero movie, it warrants some interest, if not necessarily adulatory gratitude .
