Product Description

Zack Snyder directs this action adventure feature, produced by Christopher Nolan and based on the DC Comics hero. After being sent to Earth by his parents to prevent him from dying in the destruction of his home planet Krypton, an infant boy is taken in by Kansas farmer Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) and his wife Martha (Diane Lane), who name the child Clark. Growing up Clark (Cooper Timberline/Dylan Sprayberry) begins to discover the true potential of the superpowers he possesses but with this comes a sense of responsibility. In his 20s Clark (Henry Cavill) gets a job as a newspaper reporter at 'The Daily Planet' where he meets and later becomes romantically involved with colleague Lois Lane (Amy Adams). When an evil force threatens the Earth and its inhabitants, Clark resumes his true identity as a superhero and fights to save the planet. Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe and Laurence Fishburne co-star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice surprise! 9 Feb 2014
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've only watched this once, and maybe I'll like it less on subsequent viewings... But for now I can't praise it enough!
This is the Superman film I'd been waiting and hoping for, a total contrast to the terrible film that came out a few years back.
Russel Crowe is great, as per normal, and the guy who plays Superman is perfect. At certain moments he could be mistaken for Christopher Reeve which is no bad thing for those of us who grew up watching the original films. For the rest of the film he embodies the Man of Steel like no one else ever has.
This has a few similarities to Thor but for me is by far the better of the two films, its not that Thor was bad, just that this is great.
I hope they make another... Soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable remake of Superman I and II 9 Feb 2014
By 4KGeek
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I watched Man of Steel for the first time last night knowing only that it was another Superman movie. So I was surprised when the film began back at the start again with the destruction of Krypton. I quickly realised this is infact a remake of the original Superman film and actually Superman II as well as he has to deal with the bad guys and girl again. So how do they compare? Well, the original films were, and still are, very much loved but after you've seen Man of Steel, you realise the original films are very dated now with what would now be regarded as low budget special effects and quaint behaviour. In contrast, the special effects on this new film are fantastic and the last 30 mins are constant, high impact action. It's much more than a popcorn movie and I enjoyed it from start to finish. My friend and I always rate every film we watch. He gave it 7.5 and I gave it 8 out of 10. So definitely worth adding to your Blu-ray collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good actually 11 Mar 2014
By Boing!
Format:DVD
After reading quite mixed reviews I was a bit reluctant to rent this, but I am glad I took the risk. This is a prtetty decent film in my opinion, plenty of action, great effects, decent acting. The old superman films look really dated these days and this is a good stab at rebooting. You could watch a lot worse!

3.0 out of 5 stars Superman Reimagined 27 Mar 2014
By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Henry Cavill (The Tudors) fills out the suit, and Zack Snyder (300) takes directing duties in this re-imagining of the Superman story. Eschewing the trappings of any of the previous films, this goes back to scratch, effectively a remake of Superman 1 and 2 rolled into one. It follows the demise of Krypton, Russell Crowe as Supe's dad sending him towards earth, and then wraps into that the story of General Zod (the always good value Michael Shannon), as a nemesis for our man of steel.
So what do we get - an origin story, which is quite well done, and a coming of age story for Superman as he grows up on earth. This is all told in quite condensed and non-linear format, and I for one was left wanting to see a bit more of Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as the conscience of Superman, his adoptive parents. It segues in to a final half which is a long, oh yes, really too long, series of action set pieces as Zod and Superman face off. Frankly, it has a few endings too many, Snyder belying his love of action over substance, and the action becoming more and more devoid of thrills. As a whole then, it's just impossible not to compare to the original, and it really does serve to remind you just how clever the structure of that first Superman movie was. Cavill is a wonderfully brooding and intense Superman - but where is the vulnerability of Clark Kent? There is just something missing in the beats of how Kal-El becomes Superman, the elements of him learning about what it is to be human. The sci-fi elements might surprise you, and the colours are very muted in contrast to the primary coloured days of Christopher Reeve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be so much more. 14 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Great first 40 minutes, badly let down by a flash bang wallop second half.
You can only watch so much of crashing through walls, buildings, glass, gets tedious.

Characters really good, casting excellent. Flying is now reaching perfection, still too much reliance on CGI.

What a shame, can't understand why the majority of this genre inevitably end up being boring and unintelligent, suppose a lack of end story does not help.

Zak Snyder tries and nearly succeeds.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Super' man 20 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After seeing this on the big screen last year I had to own the DVD. This is not an attempted revival of the Christopher Reeve films like 'Returns' and although unfamiliar to non readers this is a close to an accurate big screen adaptation of the source material than any fanboy could have hoped for.

Surprisingly good performance by Russell Crowe also, the cast is brilliant and Henry Cavill plays this version of Superman wonderfully, the scale of the scenes, the special effects and the uplifting, dramatic and sometimes emotional score by Hans Zimmer make this a fantastic film. Highly recommended.
