is not a great movie, but Ill save the bitching for later. I want to start off by praising Ben Affleck, a decent actor who has made a few bad decisions over the years. His work in this film is a nice antidote for Armageddon
, for both Affleck and the audience. This is a fictionalization of circumstances surrounding the death of George Reeves, the man who played Superman in the 50s. One year after the show ended, he was found dead in his bedroom, a gunshot to his head. It was ruled a suicide, but some evidence suggested his death couldve been the result of foul play. His death remains one of the great Hollywood mysteries. Affleck plays Reeves, and while the center of the film is actually a fictional private detective named Louis Simo (Adrien Brody), its Affleck who steals the picture. Yes, hes saddled with a completely unnecessary prosthetic nose, but by pictures end, it doesnt matter. Hes turned in career-best work.
