While I can see and understand some of the complaints against this film, some of them, on the other hand, are hypocritical nonsense.

The internet isn't the best way to put a films reception into perspective. From perusing comic book message boards you would think this is the most hated film of all time. Not so. It is mostly met with favorable praise. But the vocal minority is REALLY vocal on this one. Complaints about structure and editing are one thing (I don't agree with them at all but they are legitimate) but the huge hubbub over the destruction in this film is over the top and frankly all out misguided and downright false.

It seems the internet can't make up it's mind on what they want their Superman to be. For YEARS all fans ever did was say they wanted a Superman movie where he can really show off his powers. They begged and whined and pleaded for a Superman film to deliver the action that the character deserves on screen. And when Superman Returns came out that begging and pleaded grew exponentially. "WE WANT SUPERMAN TO PUNCH SOMETHING!" seemed to be the go-to phrase. People finally get what they were whining for and what do they do? They turn their nose up at it.

The way people complain about the action you would think this is nothing but wall to wall mindless explosions. This is not so at all. After the opening scenes on Krypton and a quick rescue on an oil rig the film doesn't have much action until the last act kicks in. The last act is no longer or drawn out than The Avengers ofr any of the Nolan Batman films. In fact I think I read somewhere the finale to Batman Begins is a few minute longer than Man of Steel.

For one thing this is a superhero movie. Two, this isn't only a superhero movie but a SUPERMAN movie!

This new Superman film is became one of my most favored films. Personally believe Zack Snyder did an outstanding job, the film gave a major impact of origin and legendary production for Superman, and the action was excellent for they had a touch of True Comic imagery on the film. Superman was normally portrayed as the savor similar to Christ, but more so the American figure, so Superman in comics always was a major character of inspiration to us Christians, not to be worshiped but inspiration to uplift men for a something greater. I believe Zack did excellent, personally I'm a fan of his work! When it first came out in theaters I was one of the first to see it, honestly, something about the trailer made me think this film was the real deal, and when it first was released on Blu-ray I brought it that same day. That tells the reviewers whom maybe reading this that I was a strong fan of this film, in fact so strong of a fan that all the Superman films back then, I don't even watch and not part of my collection. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and the sequel to come is the best rebirth of Superman films and will continue to collect the upcoming films. Very excited about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film coming out 2016, and personally believe it's going to be even better. The truth is I believe anytime Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan come together in comic films, they will be excellent, now imagine if Michael Bay tagged along the film making, imagine how even greater the films would be.
Visual Effects were amazing as well, and storyline was very good for Superman's origin, I believe it could have been a little more stronger in inspiration and wisdom to the audience.

Let me say right away that I am fan, so if you imagine that there may be some bias about this film, you'll be right. As much as I enjoy the work done by Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan I am, first and foremost, a fan of Superman the character. Beyond the super powers and god like awe that surrounds the character, he is inherently a symbol for the potential good of the human race. He represents the best of both his worlds and acts as a guide for others. Superman is often referred to as the "constant boy scout". It's easier to understand when you truly see the kind of temperament and control he exhibits on a nearly constant basis. When faced with adversity how easy would it be for him to destroy his opponent in the blink of an eye, and yet he refrains from doing so. He is a symbol for all that we can achieve, good and bad. In some ways he is the embodiment of hope; hope for the future, hope for the world, and hope in our own personal lives. So, when I say that I am a fan I mean to say that this film held high expectations for me and I am glad to say that this film not only met my expectations but exceeded them.

It's difficult to compare comics and movies to one another. They are different animals, and because of that, require different things. For those of you who are fans of the comics it may be best to show that this film has an extremely similar vibe to the "Earth One" story presented a few years back. It is a reboot that while fresh and rewarding for the casual viewer truly gives back to the fans. It's worth mentioning that I believe a movie based on a comic book should remain faithful to its original material it also needs to separate itself and be its own thing. Thankfully that is the case with the "Man of Steel".
