Director Richard Donner brings the legendary character Superman to the big screen, with Golden Globe-nominee Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel.
An alien orphan is sent from his dying planet to Earth, where he grows up to become his adoptive home's first and greatest superhero.
Critics Consensus: Superman deftly blends humor and gravitas, taking advantage of the perfectly cast Christopher Reeve to craft a loving, nostalgic tribute to an American pop culture icon.
