I too have been a fan of Superman for most of my life (lest just say 50+) I grew up on George Reeve on TV and all the titles in DC. I was a little disappointed in the Christopher Reeves movies because they were a little to comical for my taste. This movie, although it rewrites some of the basic anchor points of the Superman history or timeline, is still the best. I sat through the entire movie and was thrilled by all aspects of "Man of Steel". I liked the fact that this movie did not take the time to go through his whole life on Earth. The highlights in the film filled in enough to fill in what was needed and still keep the plot and action rolling. I hope this Producer, Director and Henry Cavill will do a sequel.

Probably the movie lacks the kinda production values one would expect from a Nolan movie, but nevertheless it is a great movie. Very well done and an amazing cast.

You could have edited out about ONE HOUR of this movie and saved a lot of painful watching. The movie was entirely too long ! It lacked the charm of the original TV series, and you might as well wait for the video, that way you fast forward the sickening destructive scenes.

This would have been a good movie. I'm just mistified by the fact that superman is world known and they still need to retell his orgin AGAIN. What a waste of 45 minutes. And WTF, EVERYONE knows it's Clark now. Dear god even Lois knows who he is. And she leaked the story to the internet. Why not just have him and iron man on the same press conference, least then marvel can completely kick DC butt in movies. Anyway the FX were cool the story was ok, the acting about average. I should have waited for the DVD tho. Go see it or don't. not like i get a piece of the profit

I guess everybody has the right to make a movie in their own interpretation. The movie in general was good but dragged in certain areas. I have been a Superman fan since 1953. This one is different for sure. I can deal with the red shorts being gone but not the S on the back of the cape. It looks like a Roman gladiator cape. Furthermore, the biggest negative on this film is the music, or lack of. Superman is always associated with a powerful theme. This is neither exciting nor impressive. it just gives the move a lack of luster and excitement. Zack, listen up, Trust me on this. The music sucks.
