Plot summary: Vigilante violates laws of nature to protect his interspecies relationship.
It has a lot of plot problems and cheesy moments, but the beautiful cinematography, epic action and the fantastic performance of Christopher Reeve make up for it.
A little cheesy (ok, a lot cheesy) but still wonderful. Some funny moments in there. Christopher Reeve really was a terrific Superman.
