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

Empire

By Dan Jolin
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.

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

By Lou Lumenick
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...

Super Flawed, Super Epic!

By MedRed
Man of Steel isn't the masterpiece the trailers promised. It suffers from mediocre screenwriting, poor directing, and an obvious heavy editing hand to pare down the run time. This is a 3 hour movie...

Don't listen to the critics!!! Amazing film.

By michaelrobles86
Okay so this movie with downright amazing. All the stupid gripes critics had like.. lack of humor, lack of romance were well.. stupid. Sure it wasn't a light hearted, funny movie like let's say...

This movie is Amazing!!!

By scottie4703
There is action from the beginning that continues throughout the movie. It just gets better and better. This is truly a "Must GO!" as soon as you can! The actors were all brilliant in their roles....

Loved the man did not appreciate the endless useless violence

By jriela
this movie had lots of potential, with some snippets of meaningful acting, but completely bulldozed by nearly an hour of repetitive violent scenes...seriously let's show some creativity!...

Sets the bar for action and destruction

By kickerscrt
I gotta say, I've been excited about this movie since I saw the trailer last year. I've been hoping for a Superman reboot ever since the disappointing Superman Returns. Well, this one didn't...

Superman flies to another level

By mmsepkowitz
This is exactly what a super hero movie should be. It starts with a solid screenplay and takes off from there. Perfect casting, a powerful sound track and visuals that take advantage of all the...

Not a "Super" Movie! ! !

By Tony Beyer
"Man of Steel" is shot with the same "documentary style" camera works as seen in other recent "blockbusters". This "shaky camera" style of handheld camera work adds nothing to the experience. It...

Man of Steel

By mike4bell
overplayed battles between Superman and Zog; violated my history with Lois Lane and Clark but a cute comment at end when Lois says, "Welcome to the Planet"....

Not my Superman

By dave448
Ok I am old and I like my 60's Comic Book Superman. Costume with out the red shorts, not a fan. My superman would have moved the battle away from cities. Well acted, good story, may appeal to a newer...

Great Movie

By lownslow50
This was a great movie to see even though you know how it all started. The Imax verison was great and pretty long. I can wait to see Man of Steel 2 coming out soon I hope....
