Reviews
Who the f cares about the critics?
I know what the critics has said. They complained about too much action, superman being too serious, lack of romance, etc. Since Zack Snyder directed this movie, I don't think he cared about the critics. Don't get me wrong, he DOES care about the fans' opinion. Seems like he really wanted to really satisfy the fans. I see why critics complained about too much action. For me it's just his way to satisfy the viewers. This is the kind of movie that is just really satisfying. When the movie ended, I got that 'satisfying' feeling instead of the 'wanting more' feeling. It's like it was really enough.

Even Snyder's best movies (before this) which were 300 & Watchmen didn't have more ratings than 64% on Rotten Tomatoes. I think the fans should have anticipated the bad reviews. His style is actually what critics hate. The over the top action and CGI is actually his trademark. So, even from the beginning, I think this is actually the kind of movie the producers wanted. About the lack of romance, I really do think it's saved for the sequel. The sequel will definitely explore more about the relationship between Clark and Lois. This film focused on 2 aspects: the origin (krypon,struggle finding his place) & the action (Zod and his army). Don't expect humor or romance.

The visuals were spectacular! What's best about this movie is its action scenes. The action were just relentless. I think the fans would not be disappointed at all. Yes, I know there is only a very few humor this movie but that actually doesn't even matter. The battle between Superman & Zod will definitely 'wow' everyone but the critics. I mean who cares about the critics opinion? A superhero movie MUST NOT be judged by the critics opinion, what's more important is the audience's opinion about the movie and especially the fans'. I think the movie really delivered. Most people will definitely like this movie. I am really sure that many fanboys will consider this as the best comic book of all time. This is a MUST SEE for people who like action movie. The action were better than last year's The Avengers.

The sequel really have a great potential. Considering the minimum amount of romance in this movie (since they just knew each other, and superman was also more focused on Zod), the next movie could explore more of that. One of the things missing from the movie was also the presence of Clark Kent at the daily planet. It's one of the trade marks. But, I believe the sequel will show more scenes in the Daily Planet which is interesting to see.

As a conclusion, I think Man of Steel is so far the best action movie this year. This movie really is a Snyder movie. But it also has a quite lot of nolan-esque feel to it especially in the around first 45 minutes.

If this was compared to Iron man 3, if Iron man 3 was a 7, this movie is a 8.6.

Stupid version of a great movie
Wow! How the heck is this movie rated in the 8's? Are there that many tasteless people out there?? This movie has no character, no heart, nothing captivating about the superhero. No lead up to him becoming superman and way way way overboard on action, to where you simply become immune to it. I'll be honest I actually fell asleep for a little bit and trust me I missed nothing! Christopher reeve is rolling in his grave right now and I'm sure gene Hackman and the other great actors of the original are disappointed as well. Superman returns was better than this and that movie was a 4 or 5 at best. Don't waste your money on this movie just because they say it's a blockbuster!

Man of Steel is not Superman
If you are a die-hard Superman fan then be ready for a huge disappointment.Not for a moment will you get the overwhelming warmth in your heart when superman saves the day which you got when Christopher Reeve played Superman.This is just another film which lacks totally lacks a solid story and the makers are completely confident that they will fool the audiences again with massive unnecessary special effects(Same goes with Iron Man 3).Lois Lane is apparently more smart than Man of Steel as she somehow manages to be present at all the locations where Man of Steel is about to fall.I came back home and watched the real Superman just to erase this bad portrayal of my favorite superhero.

Nothing new here to see
Because Superman 78 was a success in the past, all Superman movies after that movie have to live in the shadow of such an event?

Superman Returns was basically a remake of the first, done in a stupid way (apparently director Bryan Singer was more interested in the physical aspect of the previous Superman, than creating a good movie).

This new Superman movie basically has the same premise as Returns, the big difference is instead making a pseudo remake of the first one, Man of Steel is a remake of the first two movies. The big difference between them, is Superman 06, Lois Lane has an illegitimate child (but Lois walks with another man, to take advantage of his financial condition - When the real parent is not present). In this new Superman movie, Superman is a psychopath, who by influence of the earthly father, he lets people die or in the fights he has, the collateral damage has to be in the millions. Both movies are stupid, by the way.

The first half of the movie, in which Clark has his origin revealed (same with Superman 78), he learns how to deal with his powers and find Lois. And he becomes the protector of the earth. The second half, he confronts the Kryptonian general, whose aim is to turn the earth into New Kryton (same with Superman 2, 1980) wonderful, the filmmakers, are not even try anything new this time, differently from what happened 30 years ago in theaters. Pure laziness or project completely controlled by the studio, choose the worst option.

If there is no desire to create something unique, innovative or at least interesting, what is a massive budget of 225 millions for? What they will do? Exactly, create a project as hollow as a jar. The special effects for the great battles of destruction, in which the characters are close to indestructible and invincible, fighting each other until the duration of the film reaches the end and the plot needs a conclusion.

You can start saying goodbye to all the suspense in the action scenes, without that there was not much already, because this is a super hero movie and the hero has to win and be alive at the end (and Warner and the producers have to make a profit on selling toys and action figures to children and adults who refuse to grow).

This movie is not much different from the Superman movie released in 2006, the only difference is that this movie is full of destruction scenes to appeal to Transformers fans. We have the same casting mistakes here (Henry Cavill, more like a dummy, or better Super Wooden man - only with two expressions the whole movie), Michael Shannon as General, just screams and does not nothing in the story, Any Adams is completely lost in the script.

At least in Superman '78, the filmmakers knew what they wanted and how they wanted to do it. Here the filmmakers are just doing the job in the pipeline (or the studio sends it), because this franchise is famous, and it is a great opportunity to make money and fame faster. The people here are not making art, they're here to do factory work. This movie here, even fails as Blockbuster of entertainment, this movie even fails even as a mere fun movie. (Back to the Future and Jaws, examples, movies that have been successful in this area of course).

A crooked film, the same thing seen dozens of times, without ambition, meaningless to give innovation, and especially without confidence in the project itself. Twenty years from now, when the special effects of destruction get old, someone will come here to see this stupid movie, And he will understand why this "movie" is more raunchy than a Pyrex. This is why the filmmakers want to make a product and not a film centered on the story and characters. And of course there are innumerable opportunities, If they would go that way, but they chose the first path. They chose the path what countless other products that make successful on the box-office, because of that the result was this tripe.

What a waste of time.For any intelligent person except the fanboys. But who can be a fan of Superman, Why? Because in the last 35 years, all the movies have been crap.

A fresh take on the iconic Superhero,
Jack Snyder's fresh take on Superman/Man of Steel is... fresh indeed. A superhero movie that maxes visual wizardry but beautifully balanced by emotional tones without feeling heavy. Gone is the sleek metal and crystal polish we have known replaced by a techno- organic theme (reminds me of Prometheus) that is both regal and advanced. This is perhaps the only Superman film with the best narrative of the Kryptonian's heritage and history. Good casting and an impressive performance by Russell Crowe. I give it an 8.5/10 (just behind Dark Knight Rises IMHO). The Dad in me deems this movie watchable by kids (more age-appropriate, less violent than Iron Man 3)

Turgid
Deeply disappointing, turgid romp through the AfterEffects plug-ins palette. Someone in the SFX discovered how to make buildings explode and that was all they needed to fill two hours with a tedious, exaggerated Kryptonian punch-up bursting through more office blocks and supermarkets than you can shake a stick at. This is CGI melodrama at its worst, audio-visual monosodium glutamate attempting to mask the bland dialogue and flavourless plot. Just as the action begins to flag, there's another mega-scrap, as duelling Kryptonians demolish buildings and fling freight trains at one another. The sound is utterly deafening, over-amplified to create the illusion of this being a really exciting film. It's not. It's just very, very loud. Bring ear-plugs.

Man of Steel 10/10
I am a big superman fan and luckily got a chance to see its early screening and believe me it was a brilliant movie. I had very high expectations from the movie and this film has completely exceeded my expectation. The visual effects and action sequences in the movie are actually the best I have ever seen. It easily overcomes The Avengers in every single way and will for sure emerge as a big blockbuster film at the box office. I don't know why the critics are saying that it focused more on the action than on clark kent's character. It was completely balanced in all ways. Its a must watch movie for every one and in my opinion its not only the best movie of this summer but also the best comic book movie of all time. And yes with a better score also put in by Hans Zimmer. 10/10

Fast paced action and visually appealing
I have been a fan of Zack Snyder's work and when I heard he would be filling the director's shoes for Superman, I was excited. Man of Steel works at many levels. A solid story that starts from Krypton and ends at our world. One is made to feel like a Kryptonian more than a Earthling and the screenplay is very natural. I felt that the pacing was quite good and there was never a dull moment. The action is thick and realistic and you can expect a lot of destruction and havoc, but still befitting for a Superman movie. The casting was apt and Henry Cavill and Russel Crowe are the standouts but I will credit Zack for this movie's success and I hope WB persist with him for the sequel.

Terrible, Only For The Fanboys.
I didn't want to see this film, but the family wanted to go see it. I warned them, but they didn't listen. I knew it would be a disaster when I found out Zack Snyder was the director. Let me just say that overall, this movie was very boring. The characters/actors had no charisma, there was absolutely no humor, and it jumped around so much without any meaningful transitional devices. The tornado scene was ridiculous, and the advice given in this about running under a highway overpass is actually wrong and its been proved for decades that it's the WORST place to hide. They might as well have told us to drink Windex to cure heartburn. Amy Adams makes for a terrible Lois Lane. Why does she know his secret so early on? Where's the fun and excitement of her being so close to Superman (when he's not in costume), and yet not knowing it's him. Henry Cavill may physically be a 'Superman' character, but that's where it ends. He has no charisma, and his portrayal of the caped crusader comes off as a wimpy, I-don't-wanna-get-involved person. General Zod in this film is not all that menacing. None of his sidekicks were that interesting either. How come there are so many of these Krypton escapees in the film anyway? Stuff that didn't make sense, included why did they bother terraforming if the way the Earth was made them even stronger? Why create a planet where all of them are of the same low strength level? Okay one explanation that was forwarded was that it would take them too long to adapt, Superman had 33 years. Well, General Zod seemed to adapt quite quickly. Why did they destroy so much of Metropolis in the first film? Is the sequel going to be about them rebuilding the city? I found it funny that there was a convenient, open area where Zod and Superman had their fight on the ground. It wasn't a parking lot, it wasn't a park, it was just some big open area with no building. Weird. I would just say stick to the Christopher Reeve Superman movies (specifically 1 & 2) if you want to enjoy this iconic character. At least those movies had a sense of humor, and had great acting, great dialog. Yes, there were some cheesy moments, but that didn't overpower the wonderful character development we saw. Especially in the shaping of Superman as he realized who he was. Man of Steel didn't give us any of that, we didn't see much development, he just seemed to already be aware of his powers early on and that's it. After he put on the suit, he'd magically transformed into a less wimpy, clean-shaven superhero. I hope this is the first and last Superman movie by Zack Snyder.

A Brand New Superman You've Never Seen Before
This is not like all the previous Superman movies. This is not "Smallville". This is not the sequel of "Superman Returns". This is "Man of Steel"! This movie is awesome.

I am not a big fan of Superman but this is the best Superman movie I've ever seen. (Christopher Reeve's version is also good, but this Man of Steel is better. And.. the Brandon Routh's version? Naaaaah...) The plot is really structural. Not so many flashbacks, so you won't get confused. The whole storyline is just really simple. It told the very beginning of Superman and then, yeah, his adulthood.

The special effects here, I think it is as awesome as Marvel's Avengers. Yeah, alien and superheroes, what do you expect? Battle scenes are good, I can feel Zack Snyder "300" sensation in here.

Henry Cavill succeeded bringing a whole new version of Superman to the big screen. He wiped out all our knowledge of the previous Superman movies and replaced it with a darker version of Superman (Nolan's kinda "darkness") This movie is enjoyable. See? There's still hope for DC Comics' superheroes movies.
