    Superman is back! "One of the best comic book film adaptions I have seen to date. This film is action packed, emotionally engaging, amusing at times, and very refreshing. A Must see for the entire family. I give it a big thumbs up! 9.5/10

    Man of Steel is more than just Avengers-sized escapism; it's an artistic introduction to a movie superhero we only thought we knew.

    If the word “epic” has lost its meaning in the throes of recent summers, Man of Steel forcefully redefines it. Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    Feels both modern and traditional – a halfway house between the broodier Nolan way of shaking things up and the louder, bone-crunching style that director Zack Snyder established with films such as ‘300’ and ‘Sucker Punch’. Man of Steel is punchy, engaging and fun, even if it slips into a final 45 minutes of explosions and fights during which reason starts to vanish and the science gets muddy.

  • Dan Jolin

    It aches for more depth and warmth and humour, but this is spectacular sci-fi — huge, operatic, melodramatic, impressive. It feels the right Superman origin story for our era, and teases what would be a welcome new superfranchise.

    Empire Full Review
  • Matthew Leyland

    A bracing attempt to bring the legend back into contention that successfully separates itself from other Super-movies but misses some of their warmth and charm. But given the craft and class, this could be the start of something special

    The most striking and curious aspect of Man of Steel is the way it minimizes and even shuts out women. Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    David Goyer, who wrote the script for Man of Steel from a story he concocted with Christopher Nolan, found a new way to make us care: The title character is disturbed by everything in his adopted home.

  • James Berardinelli

    Man of Steel is, first and foremost, a great spectacle.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Caught in the slipstream between action and angst, Man of Steel is a bumpy ride for sure. But there's no way to stay blind to its wonders.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Deploying an impeccable American accent, Brit Henry Cavill may be as charming as the late great Christopher Reeve.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Charlie Schmidlin

    Goyer and Nolan have crafted in Man of Steel a taut, exploratory vision, and Snyder's later inheritance of the material indeed proves his best work since “Dawn of the Dead.”

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The action is plentiful and thumping; Marvel-size thrills await you and the generations of kids who still believe in Superman. I just mean that the movie finds its true, lofty footing not when it displays Kal-El’s extraordinary powers but when it dramatizes Clark Kent’s roiling humanity. The super part of Man of Steel is just O.K.; but the man part is super.

    If you like your summer-movie explosions huge, Man of Steel delivers. But it seems as if it might have delivered even more than a glorious noise.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    As much spectacle and action — minute-by-minute, frame-by-frame — as any movie anyone could think of. Zack Snyder’s huge, backstory-heavy extravaganza is a rehab job that perhaps didn’t cry out to be done but proves so overwhelmingly insistent in its size and strength that it’s hard not to give in.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Snyder has cast Man of Steel with dramatic actors, not action stars, and it pays off.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Here are a few adjectives that do not apply to the new Superman movie: Beguiling. Frisky. Nuanced. Quiet. Even the title, Man of Steel, sounds too flighty for this film. Man of Lead, or Man of Plutonium, maybe.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The story, while sometimes soaring, is other times grounded by a hyperactive and numbing vibe. But Henry Cavill has the strapping good looks of the comic icon, and humanity to match his superheroism.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Snyder films the violence in Man of Steel the way he films most of the rest of the picture: Like a man chasing tornadoes and not even trying to keep subjects in frame. It's a choice, and not a bad one, necessarily — the Smallville farm scenes, in particular, respond well to the approach — but by the end it's a visually limiting one.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Snyder knows how to put on a show, and Man of Steel has a massive scope that’s hard to resist... But what’s missing from this Superman saga is a sense of lightness, of pop joy.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Glen Weldon

    What it fails to supply much of — surprisingly, it must be said — is fun. This is serious business, Snyder seems always to be saying. This is badass. And given the sheer logistical size of the spectacle on display, it's a position that's hard to argue with.

    At once frantically overblown and beautifully filigreed, Man of Steel will turn on everyone it doesn’t turn off.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The serious-minded result has many super-cool moments. But when it gets clunky, it’s super-meh.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    It has heft, it looks amazing, and it's businesslike to a fault.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    It’s a relief just to watch the actors act once in a while, and thankfully, Snyder is astute enough to punch some breathing holes in this steel-clad colossus.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Andrew Pulver

    The whole film ends up feeling weighed down: though Man of Steel bounds from one epic setpiece to another, you're left with the nagging feeling that you just can't work out what the central twosome see in each other. And for Superman and Lois Lane, that's hardly ideal.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Like Snyder’s Sucker Punch, it’s a confused but fascinating mishmash of religious, military, and sexual imagery.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    While certainly the most dazzling Superman movie to hit the big screen, the 143-minute Man of Steel is also the longest, and it only justifies that heft because it leaves room to keep the effects coming.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    If this version of Superman is to have a future — as Warner Brothers seems convinced he will, having already green-lit the sequel — I hope Snyder will dial back both the casualty count and the Krypton mythmaking and instead focus on establishing a fictional Earth that’s rich enough to be worth saving.

    Slate Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Taking a cue from the “Batman” series, the film is dark and thudding and overlong.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    At least an hour of Man of Steel's excessive running time is devoted to the sort of crash-and-burn, slamming-into-skyscrapers CG fight scenes that we've already seen in "The Avengers" and "Dark Knight," "Iron Man," and "Spider-Man." Man of Steel is just the same old same old.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    What went wrong with Man of Steel? The early teasers promised Terrence Malick. The finished film is more Michael Bay.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    While its ambition and scope pull one way, its pinched and unconvincing sense of drama pull the other.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The movie isn’t dead on arrival, like Snyder’s over-reverent "Watchmen." But it’s pleasure-free.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Man of Steel has too many characters and too much plot, resulting in a movie that feels overstuffed and overlong.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    If every generation gets the Superman it deserves, Man of Steel suggests we’ve earned one utterly without wit or charm.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    A mostly underwhelming film, with underdeveloped characters and supercharged fight scenes that drag on forever and offer nothing new in the way of special-effects creativity.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The local multiplex is lousy with celluloid crime fighters. So what turf is left for good old Clark Kent? That's the nagging question that director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel tries — and ultimately fails — to answer.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Redundant, unnecessary and a colossal waste of talent and money, you can pretty much sum up Man of Steel in the scene in which a lady police officer watches with her mouth wide open as Superman tosses aside tanks like Tinker Toys. “What are you smiling about, captain?” asks another cop. “Nothing, sir — I just think he’s hot.”

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Here's one more studio extravaganza brought down by numbing action and an addiction to generic digital effects.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    So we get no zippy, Tony Stark-flavored one-liners. No comic-relief characters. No nonsense. But that means we also get no up, up and away, either.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Despite looking, feeling and (especially) sounding expensive – this is one of the loudest summer spectacles of recent years – Man of Steel is second-tier and third-generation Chris Nolan-flavored neo-superhero material. Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The better actors — Kevin Costner, chiefly, as the adoptive Earth father — strain to supply warmth, but mostly, the minutes stretch into great expanses of blahness, much of them filled with Transformers-grade skyscraper snapping and bloodless catastrophe.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The humorless tone and relentlessly noisy (visually and sonically) aesthetics leave much to be desired.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    A soulless, overblown bore.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    All its faux-patriotism isn't played for satire, but instead utilized to align the film with an idyllic, unquestioned vision of goodness.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Snyder tries to up the spectacle ante with ever more explosions, crashes, thermal blasts, topological realignments, gunfire and mano-a-mano fistfights. But the result is a punishing sense of diminishing returns and a genre that has finally reached the point of mayhem-induced exhaustion.
