Awesome. That fanfilm captured the heart and core of Superman MORE than the comics have for nearly 15 years. And it's true; it put 10 seasons of Smallville to shame.
"The LESS some people know the MORE stubbornly they know it!"
"That which does not KILL us only serves to make us STRONGER!"
We knew it was Superman, she didn't, but, at that moment, that guy who spoke to her for a few minutes was her 'Superman'.
(But that's just my soppy view )
I agree with you. It showed that Superman was actually a very "down to earth" kind of guy. He lives among us, rather than flying over us forcing his will on us (as Clark mentions). There is a lot to this film to dig into. It really does get right to the core of Superman in a much more powerful way than any other film, show, or comic has in a very long time.
I wouldn't say this movie totally blew my mind, but it was good. If you like a more human Superman, it captures the essentials of the character. I liked how he was relentless to help, but knows that he can't be too coercive in forcing his will. Also, he's effective. I feel like there's a temptation sometimes to make Superman who's so alien, he doesn't get humans, and doesn't know how to diffuse a difficult situation.
Wonderful, this made me tear up.
And then you read people saying that he's too vanilla and that he should be a dick to be relevant.
Anyway, what a great little film.
