Excellent movie
10 August 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie twice and I can't believe my eyes yet! It is amazing , absolutely enjoyable from the beginning to the end , I think is the best blockbuster movie of the year.No doubt.

The visual effects. Perhaps the best special effects I've ever seen in a movie.The sound design. The sound effects complement the action perfectly making everything twice as exciting.

Spiderman 3 , Pirates 3 , Transformers or even Harry Potter 5 hasn't surprised me as "Supermen Donuyor" did. And the best is that I wasn't expecting something like that at all... funny , full of action and with great performances from the actors.

(Adi gibi super film)
