“ The first 40 or so minutes of this movie are absolutely amazing, then after that it falls, it picks its self up eventually, but its still extremely dissapointing. If it could of kept consistent, this movie would be way higher up on this list and, in my opinion, considered as good if not better than Star Wars.
(The fan edit 'Son of Jor-el' combines this and the Richard Donner cut together, and pretty much is the closest to this movie being perfect, in my opinion) ” - theduckswenttocanada
