Factual error: When Clark speaks to Jor-El for the first time in the Fortress, Jor-El says "I will have been dead for many thousands of your years..." Fine in theory - Baby Kal-El travelled to Earth at above light speed so time passed differently for him. However, as such, wouldn't Jor-El have seen Earth as it was thousands of years ago? Which also makes there a problem with all the things Kal-El was taught during his voyage to Earth, as Jor-El references Einstein by name, for instance, and he would not have existed at the point when Jor-El sent him to Earth.
Superman stops Lex Luthor's plan to send the west coast into the sea by repairing the San Andreas fault, he also puts the Golden Gate bridge back together and stops a town near the Hoover Dam from being destroyed. But Lois Lane gets buried alive by rocks and sand and dies. Superman finds her, goes around the Earth, and ends up going into the past before she was buried. Superman then picks up Lex Luthor and Otis and takes them to the state penitentary. The movie ends with him flying into space with John Williams' brilliant main title playing. [To Credits]
