Man of Steel - it IS the Superman movie we've been waiting for.

It's bigger than we've ever seen in every aspect - it has great acting, a very solid storyline, some absolutely essential supporting acting, it's got TONS of suspense, it's very intense, some very sad moments, some great jokes, lots of references to keep the most die-hard fans engaged and the action (WOW! the action) is relentless during the third act. Just when you think your heartbeat can settle down a bit, bam! Synder sucks you back for the final fight.

I was put through a roller-coaster of emotions during the film. It caught hold of me from the beginning sequence and never let up.

Not everyone is going to like it and I can see why. There were some liberties taken with the Superman mythology (just a few - no spoilers here). But, I loved it. As a re-boot, re-make, re-incarnation (insert whatever word you want to use), IT works and works fantastically well.

Forget what you know about Superman and go enjoy this movie for the exceptional acting, storytelling and action. Everyone has said it before and I will agree, Henry Cavill IS Superman. When you see this movie, you will believe it too.
