Newt's movie review

Spoiler warning!

The effects were cheesy but the stunts were astounding. The helicopter scene was terrifically well shot, and the dirt piling into the car still makes me tense. It's a good flick, it's true to the comic, Christopher Reeve must have been a really secure guy to be wandering around in tights so much, and nobody but Margot Kidder could be Lois Lane.

Sit down with the kids and watch it again. It's worth it.
