    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.

    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 enjoyed watching this film and recommend seeing it in the theaters. I saw the film in 3D and I think it was worth the extra cash, the movie is pretty spectacular visually. I know that die-hard fans will probably be a bit disappointed with this film but I had fun watching it. I thought it was quite interesting that the film focused on more human side of superman, it was different and refreshing. I did find the film to be a bit too long and the amount of characters was a bit overwhelming. Overall, I think this film is worth seeing on the big screen as long as you are willing to give this film a chance you will have a good time.

    I had really high expectations for this film and I have to say that I was quite disappointed with it. I felt that the film had way too many characters and too much plot, it just felt overstuffed and way too long as well. I also found the plot to be quite boring and the film was charmless and it had no wit. I did enjoy Henry Cavill’s performance and I wish he had a bit more dialogue in the film. I also thought the film was too moralizing and I just don’t enjoy that. Overall, I did not think the film was very bad and I still think it is worth seeing on the big screen, but I suggest lowering your expectations.

    I thought this film was alright and it is worth seeing on the big screen but I definitely did not think it was anything special. I found the film to be quite unoriginal and with the budget as big as this film had I expected a bit more creativity. The special effects were great but the script was kind of blah and I thought the film did not have any wit or charm. I did think that the casting was great and Henry Cavill is a great superman, I just wish the makers of this film gave him more to say. Overall, the film is mediocre but I bet it will still attract a wide audience because people love superman, i just wish someone made a good movie about him.
