    It has a lot of plot problems and cheesy moments, but the beautiful cinematography, epic action and the fantastic performance of Christopher Reeve make up for it. 6 years 3 months ago

    Is some of the effects a bit dated by todays standards? Yes! Is the ending a little goofy? Yes!

    But this really is a great movie, and an incredible achievement in terms of adapting a comic-book to the big screen. Not to mention John Williams' fantastic score and a charming performance by Christopher Reeve.

    Definitely one of the best comic book-movies of all time in my opinion.
