Bryan Singer is a filmmaker who has greatly disappointed me for the last ten years. His 1995 hit The Usual Suspects is a highly engaging and entertaining crime thriller and his X Men films are highly respectable with X2 being one of the genre best films. Unfortunately after X2 Singer started to slip. Superman Returns has heart and ambition but it lacked excitement and left audiences cold. Singer next film would be the World War 2 thriller Valkyrie which is not bad but is overall very forgettable.
