    This movie rocks. No, it isnt perfection, but it is ENTERTAINING! Isnt that what movies are supposed to be? All you part time movie critics( 20 year olds) need to get a life and quit taking everything so seriously!

    a total letdown, still hanging in about stupid zod and how S-Man arrived etc. Next wil be luthor.BORING!! Lets do something NEW! Go after regular bad-but very bad criminal. Go under cover as a criminal IN prison. Yeah, go undercover, S-Man. Stop bank robbers-u know-REGULAR crime stuff. Get it on with Lana Lang and Lois Lane. Screw their lights out! Screw the "alian" gigs. Tired of same ol, same ol.Only thing i liked-the "new" costume but maybe a ittle brighter. Best S-Man on TV?--LOIS AND CLARK!! They did it as close to "right" as can be tho a bit too much Lois-need more S-Man. I Do NOT want to see Zod or Luthor again. Also not the arrival in the baby ship.Been done too much. Not too much Krytonite. FOIL the bank robbers-chase them down in their "fast cars". Let them shoot at you--as if! Keep it as real as can be with a 'man of steel!'

    Loved It!!! Henry Cavill is gorgeous! There were a couple little things I would have done different that I thought was kind of lame, but overall an excellent movie! Want to see it again.

    This was one of the best if not the best Superman adventures made to date. First the story line at times was very emotional (and I never expected to be emotional even brought to tears) in a Superman flick. Next, the first plot wherein Clark Kent struggles with who is he is, why is he here, where is he from, why is he different etc. is very interesting and done well. The second half of the movie explores the action adventure modern day hero Superman.... don't want to give too much of the plot away. Yes, the typical 1950's comic book relationships between Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, etc are completely redone but this is not your daddy's Superman adventure. My wife and I watched the movie in 3D and highly recommend that format.

    To 3D or Not to 3D? That is the question! And dare I say that the best answer to this ever-present query for fans of big and daring movie watching is always YES! Even when the stories falter, the acting is remedial, and the plots fail to make sense, the CGI and 3D special effects never fail to amaze. This is the primary lesson of the age in which every movie that is destined to become a blockbuster is released in 3D. Can you do better than seeing Kai-El floating through space from Krypton to Earth on an IMAX screen in 3D? You'll want to reach out and grab him for your own. Henry Cavill also brings a much needed gravitas and masculinity to the role, something that Brandon Routh failed to provide in even the smallest measure. He was just a pretty boy. Cavill is pure muscle with enough brain to make us respect him. And as such he really saves the day. Kudos to Chris Nolan yet again!

    I like to think of myself as a high0minded connoisseur of movies - even when it comes to popcorn and mainstream movies like this one - but hats off to Christopher Nolan again for creating a super moody and super awesome superhero. Does it get any more super than this? If you like The Dark Knight Rises on IMAX 3D, you will LOVE Man of Steel on IMAX 3D. There's a lot more action and the straits are much more dire than anything we may have seen Bruce Wayne combat in Gotham City. Also, the supporting cast of Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner get special mention for being especially good in their parts. It's odd to think that Kai-El/Clark Kent has so many parents. The 'homeland' part of the story with his Kansas parents gets a little hokey (awww shucks, y'all) but there's little reason to grouse at that. Overall, I'd give this a super thumbs up!

    My boys begged and begged and begged me s'more to take them to see the latest action comic book superhero movie on the IMAX screen in 3D so I had no choice but to oblige. It seems like there's a new macho superhero movie rolled out every Friday these days. It sure puts a pinch in the old wallet at $20 a pop just for admission but if you grew up reading the comic books or dreaming about Christopher Reeve as Superman, you might want to venture and see this movie in IMAX. The best reason to tread back into the storyline is that it is actually pretty sentimental. I love the whole idea of a gifted young man learning his gifts can be used for better and for something for social good. Also, the effects look absolutely stellar on the IMAX screen. I would recommend this to anyone with a childlike remembrance of what it used to be like to be awed by the movies.

    The first (and most lasting) impression I had after viewing Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is how apocalyptic the whole thing was. If ever there was a planet that needed saving, it’s the Earth of Christopher Nolan’s ever-collapsing galaxy: imagine 9/11 and every tsunami, earthquake, and mass shooting you ever heard of combined and exponentially raised to the nth degree. It’s basically Superman and the No Good, Very Bad, Horrible, Terrible Doomsday Scenario.
    That being said, the movie works, though it’s not nearly so fun as mainstream popcorn action flicks based on comic books used to be. The dark backstory that the makers give Superman is perhaps a little too ironic and (dare I say?) substantial for a movie of this kind. But Nolan seems hellbent on reinventing the superhero saga of good-vs-evil to mean more than its original makers intended. Why is everything so bleak in these movies? They’re about guys in bat suits and red cape/yellow undies ensembles!
    The story begins with Clark Kent yearning at the age of 33 to discover what his purpose is in life beyond simply being “different”. He spends a lot of time brooding on an oil rig and taking his shirt off. He was raised by a sweet Midwestern couple played by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane who bake him lots of apple pies. It’s as idyllic as 1920s America could possibly have been.
    The movie jumps too broadly and too suddenly when Lois Lane (Amy Adams) shows up to uncover the secret of Kent’s background. We all know the story but the movie decides it doesn’t want to earn its emotional climax (of which there are several) and instead dives head first into major action sequence after major sequence. For those who don’t care about narrative power, it’ll be no big deal. But if you want to care about Superman and his quest, a little bit of setup would have gone a long, long way.
    Those who complained that the first hour of The Dark Knight Rises was far too tedious and slow will know exactly what that methodical plotting could have done here.

    I was looking forward seeing this film for a very long time and my expectations were pretty high, I cannot say that I was totally disappointed with it but I also can not say that I loved this film. I saw the film is 3D and i think it was worth the extra cash because it looked spectacular visually, however the film lacked charm and that was the biggest flaw in my opinion. The plot was interesting and I liked that the filmmakers explored the “man” side of the superman, but i thought that there were way too many characters in this film and it was hard to follow. I also found the film to be a bit too long and it felt a bit overstuffed with characters and plot. I did think that Henry Cavill was a pretty good superman, he made this role his own and I think he did a good job with it.
