    Just saw it. Having mixed feelings about it. The character build up, and attention to detail is awesome, but the first half did have people yawning who came expecting SuperMan to go about bashing a few baddies.

    All the silly curiosities (why does his suit not suffer damage, what makes him weak, and why, why the S sign etc etc) have been attended to, extremely well. However that did add a lot of footage time to the movie.

    There were some downright silly items like allowing the reporter aboard the C-17 military transport, but then those can be overlooked.

    All in all, looking forward to Superman 2, now that we've established all the characters in Superman 1.

    3.5 out of 5.

    This is probably the best superman movie till date hands down.
    Reason 1: Superman operates are light speed, so the fight sequences have to be really fast.
    Reason 2: Henry Cavill is drop dead gorgeous, I am questioning my own sexuality after seeing him kick butt
    Reason 3: Zod is ?#@*&%!^$~ing awesome. I mean old Zod was regal and stuff, but this one is pretty solid action
    Reason 4: Superman is incredibly strong(he can punch a body mass of about moon and displace it) and him and zod alone were thrashing entire metroplis.
    Reason 5: Morpheous was there.
    Reason 6: Kevin costner and Diane lane
    Reason 7: movie detailed about his birth and ever other account of detail, which was pretty best thing to do. Now we know why is what happening
    Reason 8: SPOILER!!!!
    Reason 9: Lexcorps was shown for a bit meaning we will see our holy lord Alexander Luthor soon.

    Shortfalls
    1. Amy adams is shit
    2. Though Russell Crowe did a wonderful job, but come on original Zor El was Marlon brando. There is never a comparison
    3. Why was Morpheous not wearing black sunglasses and leather jacket?
    4. Henry Cavill was bit expressionless at times.

    I thought the movie was OK but i did not like Henry Cavill that much as a super man,he looked like the odd one out in terms of justifying the character compared to others(a bit too good looking for this style of a superman movie),specially considering the guy who played Zod and nailed it.

    But this superman was way much better than superman returns which got released in 2006,may be i am just too spoilt since watching christian bale in batman returns.

    I will add a copy of this superman along with the first original super man in HD which i already have in my movie collection.

    yeah, Lexcorp was shown so Luthor is next. :)

    Found the movie kinda disappointing. 90% was because i had high expectations after watching almost every movie in IMAX...
    But i loved the different take on Superman. Something fresh after ages.

    Wasn't Batman Begins also slow and boring? And he wears the cape right towards the end?

    batman begins is till today my favorite batman movie ever followed by the dark knight,batman and dark knight rises.

    I am not even sure how many number of times ive watched batman begins and watchmen, both are for me in a different league altogether.

    Batman begin is pretty good. Though Bale's voice is terrible. The Dark Knight is greatest comic book movie ever made. period.

    Let's be honest, tell me if I am wrong? And I seriously do not see any problem with admitting to the fact that he is a gorgeous man. This is total objectification of him and I am sure he would be okay with it?

    Ofcourse not, you are always officially correct.
    But some guys here are totally liking him but not admitting it. Instead of poking me, you should poke them.

    Why am i being pulled into this. The guy who played superman was somewhat like the twilight guy to start off with but eventually grew on you. They could've used a prettier female to play Lois lane. She was ok ok, no megan fox but yeah okay.

    Maybe the movie makers didn't want Lois Lane to look pretty; Bcoz 'PEOPLE' might have overlooked how Gorgeous Henry Cavill is in that case. :p
