Unfortunately I am unable to compare it to the DVD version, however for a first purchase this is definitely the way to go.
Have to agree with others who have described this movie as a landmark. I am watching the movie on television as I write, and have ordered it on DVD without hesitation, I had forgotten how good it was !

I have only previously viewed Superman from TV transmissions and was somewhat surprised with the technical quality of this Blu ray disc.
Superman will always be a classic film and a landmark in comic book films in which other movies of its kind will be comapared.
Im now 29 years old and that child is long gone. But my love for Superman, the Movie remains ...

The man that shines from the rest in this epic is Superman himself, Christopher Reeve. Reeve injects a more human side into the man of steel and brillantly juggles the dual personas of Clark Kent and Superman the audience believe that they are two different men. This is done with such ease by Reeve that it is hard to imagine anyone else in the role.

Richard Donner makes us believe a man can fly thanks to the flying effects that won his team an oscar and John Williams opening theme is unforgettable.
Superman has the pleasure of boasting a ntastic cast. Marlon Brando takes a brief but vey memorable role as Supermans ther, Jor - El and is outstanding in his 10 minutes on screen. Gene Hackman is fiendishly brilliant as the evil Lex Luthor and Margo Kidder is a great Lois Lane.

What I found particularly entrancing about the film was its original ending.
Superman the Movie blew me away, even moreso than Star Wars. I was absolutely flabbergasted by this, the most magical three hours of my childhood. It was an epic of all proportions ... brilliant characters, drama, effects, photography, story, romance, music, etc...

The effects, on the whole, are very good, it was 1978! The story, including the first 45 minutes, excellent.

However some research on the internet revealed the film was shot using diffusing filters to deliberately achieve this effect and therefore WHAT WE SEE IS WHAT THE DIRECTOR INTENDED, CANNOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT.
Particularly as the cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth won several prestigious awards for this film, yet I was viewing a workmanlike transfer to Blu Ray (markedly inferior to the Blu ray of Quo Vadis filmed twenty years earlier) with a continuous softness in the definition.
Superman the movie is the best film adaptation of a comic book character since movie began, it has rightfuly won a place in audiences hearts around the world with its mixed of romance, comedy and action.
On a personal note, this film contains my all time vourite movie moment, applicable from the day I saw it at the cinema.... from the helicopter malfunction to Lois Lane inting, post Superman saving her & the copter....it sent shivers of awe and excitement down my spine then, and still does to this day. Wonderful.

I even remember going to bed that first night and being unable to sleep because my mind had gone into overdrive, thinking about the movie I had just seen. And then, I think I spent the following two years on an hourly basis humming the tune, wearing the custume and/or basing Superman stories around my lego collection.
I am somewhat natical about image quality and every other Blu ray I have viewed have always met all my standards including sharpness.
