My cynical side thinks this film is a big stinker and the gay publicity machine in Hollywood are attempting to get some underground buzz going. Without seeing what acting chops Routh has it may be premature, but taking one look at him I long for the ancient albeit corny TV acting of George Reeves, filmed nearly two decades before I was born.
George Reeves knew how to take-off too, with a running start like V1-rotate-positive rate-V2... Then whosh
and way cool music. Superman cannot fly without his music! Finally there he was, soaring above Los Angeles city hall, flying improbably at times with a negative angle of attack, but it was so cool. And woah to Mugzy Maples and dozens of other bad guys (oddly played by the same character actor.)
I don't care if Routh has my length and twice my girth, George Reeves was the man!!
