Solid in spots, frustrating in others. All in all, the epitome of an OK movie - not great, not bad. I will agree with some other reviewers in the sense that I agree that it felt like it could have reached even greater heights, or that it would get there at any moment, but never quite makes it.
Huge let down. I had high expectations and the actors all brought their A-game but the script and the director really didn't seem to know how to craft a great thriller/detective story and ended up with an uncompelling waste of talent.
The atmosphere is right; Adrien Brody as the detective and Ben Affleck as TV's 'superman' George Reeves, are great in their roles; but the interest for its convoluted and disjointed plot decreases every minute.
Based upon one of the most mysterious famous deaths in Hollywood history - the death of "Superman". I like Ben Affleck in the role of an old superhero actor who wants to be taken serious again and I thought he did one of his better roles here. I also liked that the movie show us different theories surrounding the mystery and that everyone of them seem plausible as no definitive answers nor happy ending is given.
