This film is a roller-coaster. From the intense opening to the calmer coming of age then the 2 big battles. Once we get the invasion from Zod the movie doesn't slow down. On first viewing that can be alot to take, but again repeat viewings make me enjoy it more. There are shots in this movie that are absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking. The score compliments the movie greatly and even though there is no charging theme Zimmer's more subtle work feels right. There is joy in the film as well, but it's not spoon fed to you. It is subtle like many of the themes in the film. Another aspect of the movie i love is a great villain who believes he is right and will not stop to achieve his goal. Snyder puts Superman in extremely difficult situations and he has to make hard choices. If any other character did what he did at the end of the film no one would blink an eye, but because it's Superman everyone freaks out. However, as I said this villain would not stop and there was no prison to hold him so Supes made the tough choice. You can clearly see the pain it caused him. If you have issues with this movie please see man of steel answers on youtube. I think as more time goes by this movie will get the respect it deserves.
As a movie on its own merits, it was action-packed and entertaining. You also get a little bit of family drama showing how Clark Kent integrated into his human family and school while learning to control his powers. Most of the plot revolves around the destruction of Krypton (Superman's home planet) and General Zod's attempts to use Superman's "genetic codex" to revive the Kryptonian race... by wiping out the humans and terra-forming Earth to become the new Krypton. And then of course much time is dedicated to the fight scenes where Zod's genocide squadron faces off against Superman and the human (American) army plays a minor role as a third combatant force. The human authorities are not sure at first if they should trust Superman, but much of this deliberation is implied off camera instead of fleshed out on film, which I think reduces its effectiveness as a plot element. Also, the fight scenes were intended to be epic - basically Zod and Superman are like gods on Earth - but they sort of fell short of the mark. Still good fights, but I wouldn't call them "epic." Most of the city of Metropolis, and pretty much all of the town of Smallville, are destroyed in the struggles, but nobody so much as bats an eye at the damage. That, too, makes the film a little hokey/cheesy.
The musical score for this one would be pretty good on its own as background music for a road trip to someplace epic like Norway, but it was a little over-done and at times the music tends to sort of step on the toes of the action on screen. It isn't bad, but occasionally it is a little bit distracting.
All in all, an ok action movie but I felt it was lacking in plot development and most of the characters were one-dimensional and utterly forgettable. I also recently watched the Batman vs. Superman movie and it was more of the same, unfortunately. Wonder Woman was a little better though, so I still have a small hope that Justice League will be worth the price of admission.
Once you get past the awful beginning, the movie is a blast from there.
I can accept the changes they made from the original comic book. This is after all 2015, changes are made for better or worse like it or not. I can even accept Superman killing general Zod.
However, I can not accept combining elements from lord of the rings into the Krypton story line. What where they thinking? This ruined the beginning and the whole Krypton story is lost.
That being said, the rest of the movie is a blast. Though Henry Cavil is no Christopher Reeve, he is the best superman since Reeve.
I do miss Jimmy Ollson though.
There were some weak points but not worth bringing the review down.
