Man of Steel is really solid, decent and good origin story about the greatest superhero of all time "Superman". I am a huge fan of Superman I grew up watching Christopher Reeve's Superman. I like this movie more than Superman III or Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and Superman Returns. This is my third favorite Superman movie. I was one of the haters of this film, but now since I am making a Superman marathon and I am watching every Superman movie I can say I enjoy this movie the second time around. It is better than Superman The Movie? no. But it is a good movie, I know it is reboot of Superman I and II and - - the second half in the movie is much better than it gets praised. I like the action in this movie it was much better than in Superman II the romance didn't slow down the film.
Superman sacrifice his home world Krypton for Earth and I think it was really heroic thing to do. This movie still has problems and flaws in the movie that I didn't like the first half had flaws that is why I can't say it is the best movie or better than Richard Donner's version "Superman The Movie" but it is an okay movie. Hans Zimmer score I have enjoy it very much, I love the music score. The action, special effects CGI and the actors in this film I enjoy it very much.
Henry Cavill as Kal-El/ Clark Kent/ Superman did a good job portraying the "Man of Steel." I love his performance in the movie he is a good Superman. Amy Adams is fantastic as Lois Lane in my opinion much better than Margot Kidder she did an excellent joy portraying Lois Lane than any other actress did. Michael Shannon was better General Zod than Terence Stamp did in Superman II. I enjoy those three actor/actress in the movie so much.
The story is not week, the romance does not slow down the movie. The action is a bad-ass action in this movie. Superman II took 1 hr and 30 min. until Superman went to action while in this movie we have action right after 1 hrs and it was pure bad-ass action. I like Superman that he turn him self to authorities and to General Zod so that our planet Earth will be safe. I like that in the film. Superman didn't save only one soldier or Lois he saved more people in the film. He sent back Kryptonians in to black hole - The Phantom Zone. I like that the film doesn't copy the first movie again in which Superman Returns did. I did not want to see another disaster movie that we already had in the first movie and Superman Returns copied it. I did not want to see Lex Luthor again scheming the plot for the third time. Man of Steel is a solid decent superhero movie. I like Zod praising Jor-El (Russell Crowe) this time around. I like that the story in the movie is fresh and does not copy the first movie.
The fight between General Zod and Superman is excellent pure bad-ass in the film and kicks ass. I enjoy it so damn much. The story is about the codex which Zod is after it. He wants to build Krypton and kill all people on earth and Superman fights for us. He stops Zod on the end by killing him.
Pete Ross and Dr. Emil Hamilton are in this movie right from comics
in which in other Superman movies they weren't mentioned but only Smalliville Tv Series.
Things I didn't like in the movie: General Zod stabbing Jor-El I did not like that sequence at all.
Clark Kent stealing cloths I hated that, he shouldn't have done that.
I didn't like that Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) said Clark should have let those kids to die. (Maybe) he shouldn't have said that.
Clark insults pa Kent that his not his father and during hurricane he doesn't save his father and Jonathan doesn't let him I don't like that in the film.
Lois Lane find out Superman's secret too soon while in Superman The Movie Lois find out the sequel Superman's Identity.
Superman twisting necks I don't like that idea either I don't like it.
Clark destroys a truck about the trucker who throw him a bear in his face.
Directed was by Zack Snyder who also directed Dawn of the Dead, 300 and Watchmen. Yes I enjoy Dawn of the Dead and 300 to death. 8/10 Man of Steel is a good movie, solid, excellent, decent good superhero movie I like it.
