Smallville > Smallville Finale Review: The End of an Epic Journey > Comments Page 4
I really liked the ending last night. I would only have added one thing - scenese with Chloe and Clark talking about their past together. They made such a good team all through the series. The story was well written and the acting was off the wall. Emmys anyone? Sorry to see it go but I would love to see this group in future Superman//Smallville movies. They deserve it. I'll miss Allison Mack because she held his hand all 10 years but Lois, in the end wins the prize. Good by Smallville you will be greatly missed.
Not even 1 frame of Clark in the suit from head to toe, that wasn't crappy CGI at a distant. NO acting/special effects required Tom. All you had to do is stand still with the suit and cape on for a 1 second shot. Fail!
Other than a tight T-shirt (very last scene) I bet, 100% Tom never even put on the suit in his 10yr smallvile career. I'm wondering if he put it on in his dressing room and said... "damn I look fat in this" Time for some CGI effects.
Some technical issues that were incorrect. The suit that Jonathan hands to Clark in the Fortress has a raised latex "S", and the suit is very thick latex with bulk. Obviously, this was used for close-ups due to its impressive curb side appearance. The one he wears under his suit toward the end is a flat cloth material "S". Plus there is no way you could fit that latex suit under his business attire.
Ok, the fact that Clark had to face all these trials that would lead him to ultimately face darkseid and realize he could fly was intriguing. This doesn't follow the Superman mythos since in the comics he can fly as a little boy. The fact that he had to go thru all these trials in order to get the inward confidence to believe in himself is pretty far fetched. It almost makes him look like a basket case. Exactly how much confidence do you need? Kara could fly right away, as did the prisoners who escaped the Phantom zone. Nonetheless, the CGI of the planet being moved by Superman was low r
F*** I still have water in my eyes.
Sorry : Lana (the whining girlfriend).
10 years... Now I got a hole in my TV...
Best TV opening Credit/Songs of All-Time. Never tire to see it!
For me this show got a Second Life starting at season 7 and the introduction of Lois. They drop Lana (the winning girlfriend). It become more and more adult and as better visual since then.
We will really miss this good sci-fi show and all the heroes that was in !
I think it was a brilliant finale. I am a new Smallville viewer from England having only just watched the full 10 seasons over the last few weeks and have grown to love all the main characters. What a talented bunch of actors and writers. I have laughed and cried and it has been superb entertainment. I am really sorry it is finished...but what an excellent ending. And what a delight were all those subtle little 'innuendos' for the 'grown-ups'! I think the writers were genius! Well done, all, for such a fun series. Sally
@steve: I see where you're coming from. But this show is about Superman's journey. No one elses. If you wanna see all the heroes together, I suggest turning the channel to Cartoon Network and watching The Justice League.
this was an amazing episode.
a little disappointed that we didn't really
get to see
But overall all better than i ever imagined
I loves the finale so much, The only thing wrong with it is that it's the end. :( Not in a million years could I see it ever comming to a end. I was hoping for another series "Superman" to come on after smallvile with all the same cast. But it is now clear that it wont.
We will all miss Smallville so much, and it's somthign that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
The only things I didn't like about the finale, which is a shorter list than what I liked, was you barely see him move the planet. That could have been more cinematic, even though it's only Network TV. I mean, c'mon, it's Superman. Then not seeing him statuesque as Superman. The ending was great but it would have been great to see him 1 second as Clark, and the next him running towards the end of the building in the suit with the cape flowing behind him as Superman.
Fantastic to hear the Real Superman theme at the end too. I can only see Tom Welling donning the suit in a movie. I know they picked someone else, but he has some mighty big shoes to fill between Christopher Reeves and Tom Welling. I am sad to see the show go, but it had to end. He was done in Smallville. Plus, finally getting rid of the anticipation of seeing him don the suit and fly is a decent weight off my shoulders. I'll miss Smallville, but finally he's Superman.
I'm sorry this last episode of Smallville SUCKED. Ok, they tied some ends up (in a very quick and sloppy way, What happened to Lana? She should have been there at the end also) but there was no fight (if you called the 2second fight at the end a fight) Here smallville introduced so many superheroes like the Flash, Aquaman the Wonder Twins, Martian Man, Black Canary etc...(Which if you remember it was an issue that Lois lane brought up for her wedding and none of these heroes were there) and in the final moment when you have a planet crashing down on Earth no is there to help. No Justice League??? This could have been an introduction to other superheroes down the pike. All this build up for what?? 1 1/2 hours of will she/he marry me! Come on if I wanted to see drama I'd watch Desperate Housewives. I think smallville had better fight scenes on past episodes. Superman is about his strength and power, at least show us that he can fly finally. I do not even think Tom Welling got to enjoy we
the episode was overall very good .. Being a dedicated follower of smallville myself i have some complaints however... The fight scenes were toooo short. I mean c'mon ..we've been hearing about darkside for 20 episodes and then clark kills him off with just one punch :/;/;/;/. and also the big planet heading towards earth... he made that disappear within 5 seconds .. the space part was very well done however .. though comparing to superman returns the special effects were of no match .. though it wasnt really a fair fightin that respect.. last thing which annoyed me a bit was the fact that u never see tom welling as superman as a whole figure .. meaning that he was always filmed from the waist upwards and all u c are glimses of him in the suit .. wnhy is that ..after all my complaining i have to say however that the wedding was absolutely heart breaking and the final scene with the theme song of superman and tom welling on the roof brought tears too my eyes .. so overall well done ..
@Michael: I don't think it was. I didn't exactly hear the boy utter the word "mum". But one can assume by the way she was acting towards him that it was in fact Chloe and Oliver's son. I'm not doubting you, but if you think it was Red Arrow/Speedy, then it's your choice. Oliver/Green Arrow adopted Roy as his son. So I'd say that it was not Roy Harper, just Chloe and Oliver's child.
@Aries93 i think in the last part when he calls her Miss Lane they're joking around, and/or their relationship is secret. and yeah, it is weird it takes them 7 years to be married, but legally they WEREN'T married. without the wedding certificate it's just a ceremony
For those who don't know who that boy was who Chole was talking too it was Roy Harper speedy
The very end brought tears to my eyes, him up on the roof tearing his shirt open was amazing. Im sad to see it go, such a staple of my Friday night and life the past 10 years. I have been a fan since day one, watching the characters develope and grow has been amazing. I wouldnt mind seeing this cast in a movie sometime.
As a loyal fan of this show for almost 8 years, I must say that it was an outstanding episode and I was sad to see it end. I was annoyed by some things though:
-One of them being killing off Tess. I loved Tess since her first moment on the show and as a replacement for Lex. Killing her off really disappointed me so much. Finding out she was a Luthor wasn't bad enough, but she had to be killed off by one too? It was the only tear jerking thing in this episode.
-I wish Clark was shown much closer up in his outfit. I only seen him from a distance and now in a close up. Not getting the actual feel of what he looked like as Superman. Also, someone else noted how it was upsetting that no one screamed out "LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT'S SUPERMAN!".
-Another thing was the fact that they showed the wedding of Clark and Lois and the only thing left was the marriage certificate and rings to be placed on one another, but technically they had everything done. So why was it that at the end of the
Great show, truly sad to see it go, have always loved it and now feel so attached to the cast that it feels like losing family members, i know it had to end, just wish they could've done a lois and clark series with the same cast but i know everyone had to move on and i understand that. So all i would like to say is thank you to all the cast and crew of my favorite show ever and i wish the best of luck to all of you,thank you for 10yrs, and thank you for giving the fans what they deserved!
perfect review and awesome finale love it hope for s smallville movie clois forever and brilliant lex ( michael) superb scene of lex & clark
fantastic ending just hope Tom will be in next Superman film, other than Christpher Reeves I cannot imagine anybody else who could play the man of steel, thanks smallville!
that was some ending to a wonderful show. my daughter and i will miss seeing smallville. i don't know what we will talk about now that its over. we watched it from day one. the cast of smallville was great, they all did a good job of acting. i am glad that lex came back. my daughter and i were very happy to see him in his superman outfit. this ending bought tears to my eyes. i guess because its really ending. thanks for 10 years of a great show called SMALLVILLE
Smallville's finale was amazing,it wasa everything and more that I was hoping to see,it even brought tears to my eyes when Clark held Lois's hand when she seemed lost at thew door of the church and the ending when he was in his suit also brought tears (happy tears ).I would love to see Tom Welling play Superman on the big screen,he is the perfect superman and thank you Smallville for all the good memory's................
Super-ending! My kids and I watched (including my daughter now 19 who watched the first episode with me 10 years ago). The kids and I meant Tom and Erica about 7 years ago and they have become icons for them.
True to the Smallville way to the end this finale was. Just curious was there an agreement with WB that they couldn't fully show Clark in the suit or say the word Superman? Seemed that there could have been one shot of him standing on a roof top while some citizen yelled, "There's Superman!". ? Heard rumors there is a movie under consideration, any truth?
i can't believe it's over!! but the finale was SUCH a good way to send it off. i loved how we didn't lose any lois/clark, family or character, and yet we still had lionel, and lex. it was pretty awesome, but bittersweet, as all finales are
