I think the amount of destruction was perfect. What did you per pose they do when he fights? Play slap hands?

Same here, very good, definately the best Superman, and ranks up there with Avengers, and Dark Knight trilogy in my book.

I thought the movie was absolutely bad ass. Was it the best superhero movie ever? Maybe, maybe not, but it ranks right up there. Was it the best Superman movie ever? Absolutely, and I really like the original.

Henry Cavill did an amazing job as the new Man of Steel, and I thought Michael Shannon did a great job portraying General Zod.

Side note: Anyone else think it was interesting how they completely left Kryptonite rocks out of the entire story?

Think that will happen in the next one with Lex Luther.

My personal review, no spoilers here!

The movie as a whole is pretty epic IMHO! I know I will be buying this one on BR so I can watch it again and again. The back-story was superb and the things that were done differently actually make sense. When weighing the parts I like against the ones I disagree with, the outcome is the same, it's a great movie.

Watched it last night and my God that was SLOOOOOOWWWW.

It was by no means a bad movie, but it was no where near the best superhero movie ever.

I think it was better than the original Superman 1-3 movies, the back ground fill in was great, but the CGI was over done. I like action sequences that are more than the damn Transformers Blur. Unfortunately, they waited until the end to break out the action.

I think my favorite part was the logging truck pretzel. I have to take my daughter to see it so maybe the second time will be better.....

Sorry, but I can't get into these new Superman movies, I just don't like the digital animation.
The only ones I like were hokey and with primitive special effects but that's what made them enjoyable, the Superman TV series with George Reeves and the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve will be the only two real Supermen to me. RIP guys

Loved Man of Steel! the actor was hot too so that gives it bonus points. Anyway, I liked the way he was portrayed. today superman can't be seen as much of a goodie, boy scout kind of man. it worked in the 50's but wouldn't fly today. So of course it takes the man that made 300 to come up with the badass-ness of Man of Steel! Just wish he was real

Agreed, I thought it was awesome! Certainly didn't hurt that Henry Cavill was so hot that I didn't miss Tom Welling not having the role

I thought it was good. I was a little disappointed with the score, but I had really high expectations. A few little Easter eggs I noticed

--SPOILER ALERT--
When Superman and Zod are fighting, you see a LexCorp truck and the LexCorp headquarters building. Less obvious is the brand on the satellite they hit while fighting: Wayne Enterprises. I assume this means a Justice League movie is coming and considering Chrisopher Nolan was the producer of Man of Steel, that really shouldn't be a surprise.

it would be...weird. for a long time I read maybe joseph Gordon - levitt takes over, but now apparently they might just ignore TDK back story and just have a new Bruce Wayne show up .
I really doubt justice league is going to end up anywhere near as good as Avengers. Green Lantern fizzled. Think they're going to do an Aquaman movie? haha

I noticed those too. I also noticed a couple characters who were also involved in some part on the Smallville TV show:

Alessandro Juliani, who played Professor Emil Hamilton on Smallville, played a military scientist (credited as Officer Sekowsky) in Man of Steel (he was in the Arctic military investigation camp).

David Paetku, who played two different roles on Smallville (Trevor Chapell, a football player who gets a handprint burn in Season 1, Episode 3 "Hothead" & then as a young Dan Turpin in Season 8, Episode 12 "Bulletproof"), played a military analyst (credited as Threat Analyst) down in the bullpen of the situation room advising the top brass in Man of Steel.

I kind of want to go see the movie again to see if I missed anyone else.

so
They've already confirmed that Zack Snyder (director), David S. Goyer (screenwriter), and Christopher Nolan (producer) will be returning for the sequel. And Goyer already signed a three film deal which included Man of Steel, its sequel and a Justice League film that included Superman.

It does seem weird to me that they wouldn't have Christian Bale reprise his version of Batman in the Justice League movie, though. It sounds like Warner Brothers wants to keep the two worlds separate even though they admit that technically they're existing in the same comic universe. It just seems like they're handicapping themselves...

It will be a hard movie to make if they want to do Justice League that's for sure. The avengers was fun because of Tony Stark and his personality... and the hulk for smashing Loki hehe. But the JL doesn't have a tony stark personality I don't think. plus what AZ said. Green lantern blew, I say no to aqua man. and IF they put in Wonder Woman they need to find the right woman! tall, little bit muscular who can be taken seriously a.k.a not meg fox! She need to be a new face..... Wish Lucy Lawless was younger...

Anyway it would be a bit harder to make JL and have it be as great as the Avengers, but if they can pull it off that would be wonderful!
