George Reeves was fun on TV, Brandon Routh was fine in the newer movie, but Christopher Reeve remains the actor who made the role his. And the movie is a great one, too, against all expectations at the time. Sweeping epic origin story, fantastic (for the time) effects, inspirational music from John Williams, a cast that fill each role brilliantly. Nobody plays Lex Luthor the way Hackman does. The look and feel are still majestic, permitting a sense of awe that is rare in movies.
The Greatest of All Time

Muhammed Ali in boxing. Wayne Gretzky in Hockey. Michael Jordan in Basketball. The Godfather in Movies.
All of the above are the undisputed best ever in their fields. This film is the greatest of all time. Without a shadow of a doubt.
The Donner cut seemed to have a slightly more genuine feel to it.. That being said, I was raised on this version(we didn't have the luxury of different versions when this was released), and it's still fun to watch~
