If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Tom Welling is vastly underrated for his performance as Superman in this captivating performance.
I caught this on dvd while in Iraq binged watched on leave it was one of the best t.v. shows at that time. I was later in all the myspace fan groups yeah i watched it that long ago. My 2 complaints are he never flys as super man and no tights it turns out the writers never wanted the show to be about that so stars off for that choice. I still have screen caps from the various dvds on hdds probably hundreds. I was very into it thinking he would fly for real but no. Tom welling has moved onto shows like Lucifer and Kirsten (Burden of Truth) (who I had the biggest crush on) has moved on as well but this show will always be with me. In other news Allison Mack was arrested for a number of federal offenses by the FBI she likely won't be playing anything as good as Chloe anytime soon.
A young Clark Kent struggles to find his place in the world as he learns to harness his alien powers for good and deals with the typical troubles of teenage life in Smallville, Kansas. Smallville has been described as 'epic', 'magnificent' or even 'classic' but it's none of those things, to be honest the producers and the people behind Smallville butchered alot of great heroes and villains like Arrow, The Flash, Darkseid and even Doomsday and the series finale was so poorly made that they couldn't even show the suit (except the last few seconds). The acting was also meh and most of the stories boring as hell although Christopher Reeve's appearance in Season 2 and 3 and John Williams Theme in the Series Finale were dope but still not a good show and it doesn't do justice to Superman. (4/10)
This show will go down in history as a one of a kind show. Not because of how well it told the story of young Clark Kent learning to become Superman, or it's great story lines which were very good in my opinion, but because it set the standard for other shows that proceeded it including Arrow, the flash, super girl and so forth. While it is not the best superhero show in the world and does have it flaws (Particularly with character and outcome, it does have shinning moments. Enough for me to give it a 10.
