If the word “epic” has lost its meaning in the throes of recent summers, Man of Steel forcefully redefines it.

Empire

It aches for more depth and warmth and humour, but this is spectacular sci-fi — huge, operatic, melodramatic, impressive. It feels the...

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Caught in the slipstream between action and angst, Man of Steel is a bumpy ride for sure. But there's no way to stay blind to its wonders.

This is a pretty good action movie that justifies bringing back the Superman franchise -- a dubious proposition to begin with -- by taking...

Deploying an impeccable American accent, Brit Henry Cavill may be as charming as the late great Christopher Reeve.

The story, while sometimes soaring, is other times grounded by a hyperactive and numbing vibe. But Henry Cavill has the strapping good...

The Critics don't know what they are talking about.....

Man of Steel is how a reboot of a movie should be done. It gives the fans exactly what they want, one helleva roller coaster ride. The little tweaks in the storyline gives the movie a new fresh angle...

Man of Steel

I have been a Superman fan since I was a kid. I could not wait to see this movie and I was not disappointed. The new twists to the mythology that this version offers make it work and Henry Cavill...

A smart Superman

By atk2112
I was happy to see that this was NOT the campy Christopher Reeves version where Lois Lane is basically an idiot. This is a much smarter Superman, and I liked the development of his youth. Henry...

Il keep this short. GO SEE MAN OF STEEL. Great acting and a good balance of drama and action. I love this movie and appreciate what Synder and Nolan did. I look forward to the sequal!...

Best Superman movie ever

By chrismarotta
I loved this movie. They played up Superman's alien background, and borrowed from recent comics such as Staczynski's Suoerman: Earth One. I loved the Chrisopher Reeve versions but this exceeds...

Like so many action films in the last several years, each film seems to want to top all others of the genre for unbelievable and frankly ridiculous action sequences. The first hour of this film...

It's called Man of Steel, not man of a perfect movie

It was a good comic book movie. If you stop and start analyzing every bit of the movie will you have questions and wonder why they did certain things? Yes. However, this is not your typical Superman...
