The original Christopher Reeve version. The glasses Superman wears as Clark Kent are one of the most enduring images of the character.

The greatest superhero movie of all time still holds up as amazing today. Not as flashy as the recently released Man of Steel but still a great movie.

I liked the fact that the movie delves into Superman's origins at the beginning. Marlon Brando is great as the father, Jor-el. However, overall the movie was outdated and Margot Kidder comes off as a loud, irritating character and Christopher Reeves' Clark Kent is just too much a bungler to be humorous. Although Christopher Reeves is the penultimate Superman for my generation, and I admire him as an actor and person, particularly his courage after his spinal cord injury, this wasn't a great movie. Great storyline but hokey for this day and age. One additional note, my library copy of the DVD was VERY scratched and often stopped mid-scene...don't think this made much of a difference of my impression of the movie though.

For me, there will be no other than can take away the Clark Kent/Superman role from Christopher Reeve.
