The movie was full of mis-characterizations and poor writing, and much of it was shot on indoor stages with CGI backgrounds, which I certainly wouldn't describe as beautiful. The effects weren't really anything to write home about either. There were a few decent scenes, but most of the flying scenes were outright boring, and the CGI Superman was much too obvious and used too often, where a live-action shot would have worked much better. Remember how the video blogs kept going on about the huge flying rig, that could move Superman across 3 football fields in no time and spin him around every axis? What happened to that? I can barely remember a single rig shot in the entire movie. But maybe it's a mistake to try and emulate Reeve. He was the definitive Superman, and anyone trying to mimic what he brought to the character, runs the risk of coming off looking like a cheap copy. It also didn't help that the SR Superman was such a moody, downbeat, borderline self-involved character, who often didn't act anything like a Superman. Yes, but once the initial euphoria of seeing Superman back on the big screen wears off, the negatives appear to outweigh the positives. It seems like Jason has served his primary purpose, and that was to give Superman a sense of closure at the end of the movie, when he had finally "surrendered" Lois to Richard. His recent troubles with Valkyrie, not to mention a rumored drug addiction, would probably make Warner Bros want to look elsewhere. Actually, it was studio execs and negative test audiences that forced him to cut anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes of the movie, including the entire subplot that made Luthor's plan and Superman's departure in the first place make any sense. That says nothing about vision to me, but rather that Singer was a director who was out of his depth on a project of this scale, dealing with a character neither he or his writers had any real experience with or understanding of.
