The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? is only for enthusiasts

5 second plot: This is a documentary of the 1998 Superman movie that didn't get made. It was featuring Nicolas Cage as Superman, had Tim Burton directing it and Kevin Smith as one of the writers. A lot of people worked on concepts for the movie but a couple of weeks before production the studio pulled the plug.

5 second review: You have to be a movie and/or comic buff to enjoy this documentary. There wasn't a lot of budget to make something decent. But almost all the big players are interviewed and there's some great archive footage and concept art. It's about more than just one movie, it's an insiders peek into the process of making a studio film.

IMDb score: 7,6/10
