Overlooked movie
11 August 1999 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I found this to be a very enjoyable installment of Superman. George Reeves is the reason that Superman got so popular and the reason it got to the point where Christopher Reeve would take over. As well as Dean Cain. Definitely worth watching, any superman fan will enjoy this film.
