ENJOY THE SHOW
In an attempt not to dissect nor critique the entire Superman Returns, I wish to portray my fondest admiration for the work of Kevin Spacey as the legitimately evil capitalist: Lex Luthor. Spacey delivered a performance I haven't seen from him in a while- at least not since his Oscar-winning performance as Lester Burnham in American Beauty.
When I first heard the rumors that he would play the villain of Lex Luthor I, being a fan of his work in The Usual Suspects, American Beauty, and Se7en, got extremely excited by his potential role. When I witnessed the first trailer, however, I began to have my doubts.
