    I really enjoyed watching this 3 hours cut of Superman the movie on blu ray. Also, I’m a huge fan of DC Comics, Star Wars, and Marvel comics in old and new movies. Although, I still wish they would have the DVD version and 4K of 3 hour cut Superman the movie. I was very happy to see the special edition of Superman the movie with special features from 2001 DVD as a kid. Hopefully, they’ll have Superman 2, Richard Donner cut, 3, and 4.

    This is one of my favorite movies of all time. While this doesn't look as good as your normal modern 4K release due to the age and filming techniques of the time it was made, this is still the best the movie has ever looked. Color especially benefits from Dolby Vision. The sound is near perfect.

    This is not a review of the movie but rather a personal review of the 4k restoration. When Superman: The Movie was first made the green screen technology did not exist to correct the shift in colors. Hence, Superman's costume varied through the movie. For the 4k restoration Donner painstakingly supervised the color correcting of the problem areas and enhanced the audio. This is the best Superman has ever looked or sound. While the image is slightly sharper, it retains the soft film grain look of all previous formats.

    Taking into consideration this movie is more than 40 years old, the 4 K transfer adds a few details I hadn’t noted before. As any other old movie there will be some grain that will be hard to take off, but this just brings character to the movie. The Smallville scene is the only scene that seemed to be too bright. The Atmos track is pretty well done and brings out the score like you have never heard it before. The scene of Krypton’s destruction is what I fiund to be the most enjoyable Atmos part in the movie.

    This is my favorite Superman movie of all time, no matter what people say. None of the others, remakes, sequels, or what have you versions has had the same affect on me as the original 1978 theatrical version of Superman: The Movie. It has heart & soul, It has the right amount of humor not over the top, perfect memorable music, but most importantly, it is uplifting. This movie left me feeling so good that it has stayed with me all my life. This 4K version is the best I seen so far. It's an old movie so the print looks a little worn out at times but for the most part it is sharp and filmic. I'm glad that Warner Bros. released the original theatrical cut. My prayers were answered.

    This film remains my favorite superhero flick -- The Dark Knight is my second favorite. I remember seeing the film in the late 70's with my father & brother. Such a massive production, helmed by the legendary Richard Donner. Such a great cast: Christopher Reeve, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Ned Beatty, Margo Kidder, etc. Everyone is perfect! Cannot forget the memorable score by John Williams!!! It's a fun and incredible film with a lot of heart...and no CGI :) I envy people who see this film for the first time. It's a classic and a treat. -Movie Nerd

    I have a Blu Ray player only but the graphics are good. In 1978, they did a good job making it appear Christopher Reeve was actually flying

    Just before the destruction of the planet Krypton, scientist Jor-El (Marlon Brando) sends his infant son Kal-El on a spaceship to Earth. Raised by kindly farmers Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter), young Clark (Christopher Reeve) discovers the source of his superhuman powers and moves to Metropolis to fight evil. As Superman, he battles the villainous Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman), while, as novice reporter Clark Kent, he attempts to woo co-worker Lois Lane (Margot Kidder).

    I owned this set on DVD. While it did look good at the time, it was time to upgrade to the Blu-ray version. While the special visual effects don't quite hold up as well as modern green screened features, it is one of those movies that you have to enjoy for what it is. I think great work was done to bring all of the extra footage together & have it mesh so well with the the theatrical version. Of course there was not much the could do with the Special Edition, sound-wise, since it was primarily a TV release with low quality playback in those late 70's. I enjoyed the first 2 movies, especially the Richard Donner cut of Superman II. The rest of the series were stinkers.

    Superman the movie is a timeless superhero film for fans young and old. Not only this DVD has a special edition disc that shows 2 hours and 7 min, but the second disc has the extended cut that is the 3-hour long tv version that has not been seen since it was aired on ABC tv as a two-night event. This is without a doubt a must-have collector item for superhero fans. If you want more the special edition disc has extras featuring commentary by Director Richard Donner and 3 Documentaries. Starring Christopher Reeve as The Man of Steel, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, And Margot Kidder as Lois Lane. Since 1978 Superman the Movie has stood the test of time, and after all these years this film will still make you believe a man can fly!

    This is the best that Superman: The Movie has ever looked on home video. The picture quality is outstanding for a movie of this age. The producers of Superman: The Movie understood the character and is wonderfully portrayed by Christopher Reeve. Lossy Dolby audio is chosen by default. Switch to lossless Dolby Atmos which sounds much better. If your sound system does not support Dolby Atmos, it will play the Dolby True core audio.

    At a time when Superhero movies and dystopian futures were unheard of (like movie actors becoming politicians), this is the THE FIRST, THE BEST, THE ORIGINAL, SUPERMAN-THE MOVIE! No one thought it could be done but history has proved otherwise. Truly the best incarnation of Superman with the immortal Christopher Reeve! Beautifully restored and remastered with Dolby Vision and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, 4K DIGITAL TO BOOT (Red Boot :-)), the complete package is thoroughly enjoyable and Highly Recommended!!!

    I've personally been waiting for this comprehensive version of the movie to be released in Blu-Ray or 4K. Having it in Blu-Ray is a good start. This version of Superman the Movie includes much of the footage that you would have seen in the made for TV version of the film. Much like the Godfather back in the late 70's and 80's these movies would be adapted for television often times adding additional scenes that were left out and premiering the movie which would often span 3-4 hours to accommodate the content. The scenes especially toward the end where it shows Lex Luthor's devious and maniacal nature not only against Superman but toward his own team were great to see return in their continuity. This is a must have version for those who love this movie. One of the best super hero films ever adapted. With direction by Richard Donner and script by the legendary Maroi Puzo, this film truly lives up the epic nature that so many current films of this genre have lost sight of.

    I guess I have gotten so used to modern produced UHD 4K that the picture quality and 5.1 surround just doesn't make it anymore. Still liked the story line though and the lack of real violence and profanity was refreshing. Hence the overall 4 star rating.

    This was a favorite of mine growing up. The biggest complaint I have about the transfer is the inconsistency in 4K. Some of the scenes are so grainy and noisy and others are crisp, clear and bright. I know that the grain is from the original film stock but things darker scenes really do show their age. It’s also surprising how many special effects hold up and how many don’t. I don’t think it will ever look any better so it’s good as a record of just how far filmmaking technology has come.

    Finally, the version I had been waiting for. Th original theatrical version remastered in 4K. Superman-The Movie has never looked better. Yes, it's an older title and the age of the film shows in the transfer in some of the scenes, but overall it looks superb. This goes for the sound too. Nice stereo separation and noticeable surrounds.

    in my eyes this is the original, the greatest version of Superman of our time. Christopher Reeve is the classic Superman that everybody knows and loves and this movie started it all. One of my all-time favorite movies not just comic book movie, but all time favorite. Now upgraded to 4K and looking better than ever.

    If you already own Superman on blu-ray, you might want to pass on the 4K UHD as it is not “leaps and bounds” (no pun intended) above the standard blu-ray. For the most part, use of HDR is subtle and the picture is not much sharper. The grain field is very heavy especially in the opening sequence on Krypton. Between the heavy grain and the softness in the Kryptonian sequence, you would never know that you were viewing a UHD blu-ray. Things do get better especially when Clark/Superman moves to Metropolis but all-in-all, Superman on 4K UHD is probably not worth a double dip.
