How did you like it?? I saw a midnight showing and I really enjoyed it. I'll leave the debates about the changes as they relate to the comics to others. I don't get all bent out of shape because they change something to fit in a movie. I liked the story and action sequences were pretty intense at times. A few nit picks but I'll live with them.

I was going to go to the midnight premiere here last night, but by 1130 I was falling asleep - no way I'm getting behind the wheel half asleep just to go pay $12 to take a 2 hour nap in public.

It was a totally different take on Sups from any other movie so far. I like how they told his origin.

So, d'you think it'll be a box-office hit?

I really hope so. I'd like to see where they take it. I'm positive that hardcore "comic guys", or which I'm one for sure, are going to be really critical. I've stopped bellyaching about superhero movies and try to enjoy them for what they are. Which is someones interpretation of a character. And that's not really any different than when a new writer takes over say Batman or Fantastic Four.

But a big hit? For sure I guess. It's a Superman movie that's had a ton of hype. It can't help but do well.

Still did big money - almost $400 million worldwide. Just because it's not actually a good movie, doesn't make it's not a financial "box-office hit."

Early critic reviews of Man of Steel are that a mixed bag at best. Even the positive reviews are fairly backhanded or at least acknowledge being dismissive of (apparently) major flaws.

Superman Returns was one of those movie for me I liked it better when I watched it a second time a few years after it came out.

I personally think the bar has been raised yet again for box office gold by this movie. There wasn't even a whole lot for the hardcore nerds ( myself included ) to (banned) and moan about. And there were sooo many of the type of people who love the summer blockbuster there last night that I'm sure will spread the word to their friends.

I think that's one of the things I loved about it. Nobody needs to see the same old origin of Superman story again. EVERYONE already knows it.

that was my problem with it and 99% of all superhero movies made today, if you already know the origin why have it in the movie. It is a great waste of time that would be better used building characters or the plot.

I think studios and writers add in origins so they dont actually have to write an entire movie.

2 spiderman origins
3 superman origins
2 batman origins or is it 3
etc etc

waste of time. Still was much better movie then the last one.

Loved the movie. I thought it was a good representation of Superman. Totally did the greatest superhero ever justice. Even though I tried not to get all caught up in the hype and just watch the movie. I was very happy with the results. I am ready to watch it again.

Phenomenal.

I just got back from Man of Steel with my dad for Father's day. It was stunning, action-packed, had ton of amazing special effects, and a helluva of story. It was simply astonishing.

You HAVE to go see this movie. I think Henry Cavill just became this generation's Superman. I daresay it was even better than Avengers.

The one and only complaint I had about it is: What was with the shaky camera? For high-energy action scenes, it makes sense, but it was shaky even in scenes that was nothing more than talking heads. Could we not afford a tripod?

Not being a huge Superman fan, I thought the movie was great! By far the best Superman movie yet. Cavill's appearance and physique are perfectly suited to portray Superman, and his acting wasn't half bad, either.

I was with the movie up until the big fight scenes. Superman showed a total disregard for the safety of those around him during those fights. Shot after shot of him punching one bad guy or another through occupied buildings - it's hard not to think people died every time he did that. They could have shown that he was at least *trying* to save people, that he *tried* to take the fights somewhere else. But because he didn't care, I didn't really care when we got to the last scene with Zod. He can do whatever he wants there - he's not Superman.

I was almost afraid to make this exact statement, then I re-watched the original. As hard as it is to top that classic I feel like Man Of Steel is now THE Superman flick!
