A fantastic behind the scenes look of the movie Superman Returns
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary was amazing. It's really long and in depth and covered just about all the aspects of shooting Superman Returns by going to almost every set and showing a lot of the behind the scenes people, not just the main cast of actors. Plus, since director Rob Burnett has worked with Bryan Singer before, he got to go even further behind the scenes of the movie, bringing us to the preproduction meetings and the casting calls. Burnett was also able to ask questions to Singer and Routh about their thoughts regarding the movie, which never seems to happen in documentaries.

This is perfect for anyone that really wants to know what went on during production of Superman Returns, and I'd recommend it to anyone.
