Routh really surprised me too. Didnt enjoy the film that much but he was really good as the man of steel,
Yes, I thought Routh was OK. The film itself was mediocre. Kate Bosworth as Lois was poor. Not feisty enough, though you might argue the part wasn't written that way. Erica Durance from Smallville is way better.
I'd like to see a new film well done though.
