A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not from Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the Man Of Steel 1hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

Man of Steel is a retelling of the 1978 and 1980 Superman movies. It is a retelling of the story of how Superman as an alien baby came to earth and has to deal with his power, people’s prejudices and eventually his rise to become earth’s protector.

Man of Steel 2

The movie starts with how Clark Kent originated; a good third of the movie is devoted to this. He came from the planet Krypton and was sent by his parents in order to save him from the disintegrating planet. The parents also sent with him the “codex” where the future of every people of Krypton is pre-determined before they are born.

The previous Superman movies dealt with how Superman helped people with their mundane predicaments; damsel in distress, stopping a run-away train or bus etc. In Man of Steel, Superman saved the earth from the evil intentions of General Zod.

 General Zod and his minions were saved from the imploding planet of Krypton when they were vanished from the planet for staging a coup. They were able to track Superman in Earth and they intended to colonized Earth and start a new Krypton. To do this they tried to change the atmosphere of Earth which will kill humanity. Clark Kent’s role in this movie is to save Earth from the.

Compared to the former Superman movies, Man of Steel is technically more advanced in terms of production design. However, the story is not very well told and most of the main characters are not fully developed. There is too much violence in the movie and most were not necessary or could have been shorter specially the fight between Superman and General Zod towards the end of the movie. The fight is so violent and way too long; the fight went on and on with the background music.  Man of Steel 7

The movie is alright for a weekend outing but not something to remember. It is very bleak and grey and some parts of the movie rushed and sloppy.

It stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Kal-El, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jar-El, and Michael Shannon as General Zod. Directed by Zack Snyder

    Way too violent for kids it is not appropriate for kids.

  2. I have highly anticipated this movie since I walked out of the theater from superman returns, of course below estimated ticket sales killed a second round for that franchise and I truly feel that a second film would have been much better. I am going to wait to see this for myself and not read too much into the reviews before making my own judgment, I am really hoping that the majority of the public does the same. There may be some issues with this reboot however I hope it does well enough to warrant a second film. Superman movies are always going to struggle meeting everyone’s expectations imho.

    The over abundance of fight scenes and punch throwing my have been tossed in because in the 2006 Superman movie starring Brandon Routh did not see the super strength having alien throw a single punch, but that is just an opinion.

  4. Arnulfo Wise says:

    So, is Man of Steel the Superman movie fans have been waiting for years to see? The box office take is going to be massive, but it’ll be interesting to see how longtime fans of the comics handle the Lois Lane character shift. As for me, I liked Man of Steel well enough to award it a B- mostly due to Cavill’s performance, but it’s not one I’ll be rushing out to add to my DVD collection in the future.

    The reaction was largely enthusiastic, with Christopher Reeve singled out for particular praise for his sincere performance as both Superman and the bumbling Clark Kent. The visual effects were also praised for their believability in contrast to those of previous low-budget productions of a similar genre. Meanwhile, John Williams added to his string of kudos for his score, which critics noted helped give an essential mythic grandeur to the story and character. (As with “Superman” scores past, the main theme centers on a musical triad that suggests the three syllables of the character’s name). While the critics were divided over their preference for the reverent origin sequence in the first part, or the more lively later sequence of Superman beginning his career, it has been considered one of the best superhero movies ever made. Its financial side was also very successful, grossing $134,218,018 in the U.S., while grossing $166,000,000 in foreign tolls. Altogether it grossed U.S.$300,218,018.

    Superman keeps his promise and diverts the path of the Hackensack missile first, forcing it into space. In the meantime, the California missile hits the San Andreas Fault, triggering the massive earthquake Luthor had intended. The length of the fault is devastated by the initial quake, but Superman prevents the catastrophic landslide Luthor intended by plunging deep into the earth to shore up the fault line. However, the quake’s violent aftershocks still cause massive damage that creates multiple disasters. As he builds a natural dam from rocks and boulders to stop the flooding caused by the breaching of the Hoover Dam, Superman realizes that he has forgotten about Lois. He discovers her car, fallen into a crevasse that opened up behind it and closed again, trapping her inside and crushing her to death.

  7. Julie Mo says:

    The movie is way too violent it is not suitable fro kids. It also has very thin story line, it is made purely to earn money during the summer movie season.

  8. For a man made of steel, the new Superman has a surprisingly fragile ego. A large chunk of the movie is devoted to him worrying about whether he should use his alien powers to save lives, since, you know, people might judge him and stuff.

  9. Jessica says:

    I miss the light hearted, kid friendly kind of superman movies of the past. This one is way too violent for kids.

  10. peter a says:

    It is slow at times and the action is mindlessly repetitive but never the less probably one of the best superman remakes ever made.

  11. Claudia says:

    Henry Cavill is great as superman, but the whole movie is just too dark and too much explosions, typical block buster movie intended for the summer season.

  12. ed says:

    Parts of the movie is choppy specially the first half, and the action is way overdone on the last half. Also the romance was lamely underdeveloped. The only memorable character was the female villain who doesn’t really have a story.

  13. Luke says:

    Slightly less punching with a little more story would have been beneficial, but overall very well done and highly entertaining.

  14. Patty says:

    It’s not a great movie, it’s not a terrible movie it’s watchable and has entertaining moments but I feel like this isn’t Superman.

  15. Cory p. says:

    Man of Steel is the perfect summer blockbuster and it reboots the Superman franchise into the big screen and casting Henry Cavill is perfect.

  16. e. burgos says:

    The movie was almost non stop action, it borrowed bits and pieces from the previous Superman films for the story. Some parts of the movie were so drawn out specially the fight scenes.

  17. clara b says:

    It is a darker and less humorous version with plenty of action. There is plenty of action and fights but I think it gets a bit much. I liked it but if u liked the 1970s version you probably won’t like this, I know my parents did not.

  18. Andy Pam says:

    Not enough character development, poor dialogue, impressive but cliche/over the top action scenes (how many explosions can we fit in one scene and how many buildings can we knock over). The best parts were the ones with the Kent family and there were barely any of those scenes.

  19. alan of LA says:

    Man of Steel is way too violet I don’t think it should be shown to kids. The violent is way too unnecessary.

  20. Evangeline says:

    Action packed, heart rending, warms your heart, just a thrilling science fiction action extravaganza.

  21. With the release of the first feature-length Superman movie in 1978, a vastly less idyllic image of Krypton, compared to the previous comics’ versions, was presented. Whereas in the comics, Krypton was colorful and bright, in Superman, the planet was envisioned as having stark white terrain of jagged frozen plateaus, stretching broadly under heavy, dark skies (becoming redder as their sun grew toward becoming supernova ), prompting Jor-El to attempt to persuade the immediate evacuation of the entire planet to the council of elders, to avoid perishing in the cataclysm, to no avail.

  22. Yolanda b says:

    There’s much to like, but the Man of Steel stumbles by heavily relying on sci-fi theatrics and too much and awkward product placements.

  23. clayton says:

    It has some spectacular moments and a few touching scenes, Man of Steel boasts strong action sequences and finally unleashes Superman’s potential. The lack of character development is noted.
