Quotes

Clark Kent: You know, Lois, I never pegged you for such a romantic. I mean, with Jimmy. Playing matchmaker and all.
Lois Lane: I just hate seeing people miss opportunities. Life's too short, you know what I mean?
Clark Kent: I think I'm starting to.
Lois Lane: So I meddle in Olsen's affairs. What's your story, Kent? Seeing someone?
Clark Kent: I'm waiting for a special someone to take notice of me.
Lois Lane: Kent, why so mild-mannered? You shouldn't be afraid to tell a girl what's on your mind. I mean you're kind, intelligent, good-looking, well built...

Even kids would get bored with this one
19 June 2006 | by cine-11See all my reviews

Although I'm a college educated adult, I actually like the Superman, Batman and Justice League cartoon series (I'm sure I'm far from alone on this one). The plots have been excellent examples of sci-fi writing and can be quite clever,complex and entertaining. Not so this one. The vast majority of this movie consisted of Superman and Braniac pounding each other into the ground, throwing each other through buildings, etc. The encounters went on for so long I got bored and fastforwarded through the monotony. There is a weak plot that holds this together, but it's not strong enough to redeem it. The phrase "phoning it in" leaps to mind. If you're a Superman fan, you're going to be disappointed in this.
