A young itinerant worker is forced to confront his secret extraterrestrial heritage when Earth is invaded by members of his race.
I liked this origin story of the hero, Superman. I found him to be a wandering good samaritan soul who finally finds his true path in life.
The visuals were really good. Loved how Clark's flashback scenes of his past were portrayed. Also, putting Superman in an arctic landscape makes for great eye candy ;-)
