The world's greatest superhero flies triumphantly back onto movie screens in "Superman Returns" (Warner Bros.) which has the Man of Steel (Brandon Routh) returning to earth after a five-year absence to find that while some things haven't changed -- arch-nemesis Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) is still plotting mass destruction -- Metropolis has moved on without him; this includes reporter Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) who is now engaged and raising a young son. More than a special-effects extravaganza, director Bryan Singer's visually elegant film heavily lays on Christian symbolism, while balancing comic-book spectacle with emotional drama and tender romance. Some stylized action violence, including intense scenes of peril, a vicious beating, an implied past premarital encounter, and a few mildly crude expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
