Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe
My Rating: 6.5/10
I'm going to be honest here and say that I am a little on the fence about this movie. There are a lot of things that I like about it but at the same time so much that I didn't like about it. I am a die hard Superman fan. I think he is the best superhero out there! But the thing is I don't think that there has ever been a great Superman movie. In fact there has been some pretty bad ones. For this movie I have a list of pros and cons.
Some of the pros are that the story line and the action scenes were intense and interesting. It showed Clark actually learning how to be Superman, something that was never really introduced in the other movies.
Now here are some of my cons with this movie. I was pretty upset that the super suit was changed. It worked for the Batman movies but for Superman I think that it made him look weird. I also don't like how they changed the 'S' but I do like that they gave a background to what it means. Another thing that upset me is that Lois Lane knows Superman's secret identity. I know that Lois figures it out later on but to know before he even starts at the Daily Planet angered me. The biggest problem is that Superman kills in this movie. It was not his only option! There were tons of other things that he could have done! Superman does not kill! So...with that I would say that the Man of Steel is a good watch but I do warn Superman fans that there may be some parts that piss you off.
