In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

I can only really review what I have seen in this film. Whether other people think there are avenues that were not opened up is irrelevant I think... So ..., from what I've seen, this film deserves 5 stars because we finally see Superman express himself in an angry state, something that's never really been done properly before. Christopher Reeve, bless him, you have to admire him for the gentle nature he gave his character and those films also have to be admired. It's good to see this side of Superman, whoever you are, you're bound to get angry if someone poses a threat to your mother, it was a quite a nice surprise to see that happen. The only thing that I think wasn't necessary, was the kiss between Superman and Lois. Traditionally, we get to explore Clark and the kiss comes later, so that felt a little out of place. Overall, I'd happily watch this again! The suit by the way is epic! Superman actually looks like a man, natural but different in his own way, this is evidenced by the upper chest hair you see momentarily when you get a close-up of the big guy!

Positives:
1) This movie is the most realistic version to date. I do love the Reeves ones, but they are too comical and just not "realistic").

2) It explains pretty much everything as it goes along, so you don't have too many questions (there will always be some). But it explains things such as what's going on over on Krypton, why Superman is like he is on Earth and why they choose to send him to Earth. They also explain how he gets his costume and they actually take the time to fit it in nicely with the real "Krypton world".

3) It shows Supes struggling to be accepted into the normal world, and struggling to stay in one place because of his powers. It shows him being worried about being accepted, and it takes you through the journey (albeit through many flash backs) from him as a child, struggling in school, to becoming a hero as superman.

4) Great story. Well written dialogue, and nice CGI too. The movie is long, but for me if didn't "feel" long as I was gripped to the story.

Biggest flaws for me:
1) Lois pops up everywhere, and knows far too much (she needs her memory wiped!).
2) Too many people know about him growing up.

Now I don't see this one as a flaw, but many do: There's quite a lot of destruction in the last hour, but I think it's justified since they are "like" gods, so they would pretty much destroy anything in their path on Earth.

Also, I don't see this as a flaw either, just more of me just being picky.... Flash Backs... The first half of the movie is full of them. It's fine since they work well, but It would have worked well if they just played it all in sequence, but I guess with flash backs it allowed them to "jump around" a bit in his time line.

I think this version of the Superman franchise has received a lot of flack but personally I loved this film. Great action, acting and effects. Admittedly the 3D is a bit lost here and there because of the super fast action and fast switching scenes but generally very good otherwise.

This version contains 2 blu ray discs and a dvd. The first blu ray and the dvd contain the movie and extras the second blu ray contains the film in maximum movie mode!! This basically means the film plays in the background while actors,crew or the director pop up during the film and talk about certain aspects of the movie that relate to that scene!!! It is full of really fascinating triva and behind the scenes info it also shows behind the scenes footage and a chat with Hans Zimmer...

I actually recommend the US version over the UK as you get this rather fantastic extra and it's on its own disc!!!!!!

I mis-read & thought is was part of the Amazon view now film titles. I am so glad I purchased. I have recently bought a large HD flat screen TV & this was my first 'modern movie'. It was amazing.
I have not read the reviews by critics, & I won't give anything away here, only - DC have hit the nail on the head with this movie. From the casting of Superman, his mother & both fathers.
Story amazing & everything that goes with a movie is amazing.
Buy this film, fill your popcorn dish, sit back & prepare to be amazed.

Thank you Amazon.

I bloody loved it!

Well, to be the best Superman movie yet is not necessarily such an achievement, but for sure this gets that distinction in spades. In a way, that’s a tad unfair on “Superman” which WAS great in 1978, but despite Christopher Reeve, looks pretty ropey now. Liked it then, though. Then however, it was pretty original to do all this stuff in a live action movie, so despite clearly visible wires preventing one being able to really “believe a man can fly”, it was good fun.

Visually, this is stunning. Very Zack Snyder. Story-wise, it’s also rather Zack Snyder. He’s trying to cram so much in; he needed a three or four hour movie, not just over two. Director’s cut anyone?

Performances and characters. Well, Henry Cavill’s Clark and Superman are terrific. Who’d’ve thought that after the diabolically bad “Immortals”? Mind, that wasn’t his fault. He really looks the part, and unquestionably is a big part of the enjoyment of this movie. Amy Adams is a good Lois, but then I didn’t like Margot Kidder’s Lois at all. The rest of the cast, fine. The emotional manipulation around Kevin Costner’s character fairly typical; only Laurence Fishburne seemed uncomfortable and out of place until the later stages.

The effects are all you would expect nowadays, and while some elements look jerky, perhaps because our physics knows they can’t be real, they generally show a level of CGI that was absent in many of the truly awful sequences in “Transformers” movies, “Iron Man 3” and others. The fights in particular are excellent, and there are a few scenes very much nodding back to my all-time favourite “Watchmen”.

The story is pretty much as you’d expect, nothing too complicated.
