The Superman movie I've always wanted to see on the big screen. A brilliant modern take on the iconic hero. [Full review in Spanish]

At first pass it works but upon revisiting it, it just doesn't hold up.

This Superman has the rare ability of making us look back fondly on 2006's nostalgic Superman Returns-a film that elicited a nearly universal "meh."
August 18, 2017
Too many amazements can lead to audience exhaustion, especially when the film runs more than two hours.

Man of Steel is the movie of the summer. It's the Superman movie we deserve. And it's about time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Snyder is an adrenaline junkie forever jonesing for a fix; he does less building to the action beats than backing each one into the next.
June 20, 2016
A curiously empty exercise in blockbuster filmmaking, Man Of Steel is full of sound and fury signifying... you know what.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 20, 2016
A hugely impressive and entertaining story of arguably the most powerful character in the superhero pantheon (and also one of the biggest pop culture icons), it's clear that the Man of Steel is here to stay.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
June 20, 2016
I'm excited to see where Man of Steel goes, now that it's accomplished its own bit of world building. There's every reason to expect the inevitable sequels will be better.

What's missing in Snyder's Superman is a dash of the hokey goodness that Christopher Reeve contributed to the role and the comic cold cheesiness that Gene Hackman and Terrence Stamp brought as Luthor and Zod.

Man of Steel is a very good superhero movie, but it's not necessarily a fun superhero movie.
June 20, 2016
I wish it had done more than just include lots of shots of people looking reverentially up in the sky, but it does open up some promising avenues for the series going forward.
June 20, 2016
It's bland and boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

[Henry Cavill's] only apparent superpower is boring the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 30, 2016
Man of Steel chooses breakneck speed over character development, and there are times when everyone in the room will be looking at each other to see if anyone is following what's happening.
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 26, 2016
This is not a missed opportunity which rightfully elicits a sigh, but inert big-budget spectacle that is nigh deserving of contempt.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
July 14, 2015
A movie about the clash of gods should feel more epic, more awestruck, less in a hurry to get to the next uninspired plot point.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 28, 2015
The plot's sci-fi gobbledygook gets awfully unwieldy, and I wish the colors had popped instead of settling for such dreary realism. But this is a movie with a big heart, just like its hero.
April 23, 2015
Clark's multiple father-and-son tales are beautifully realized and it's a very fun movie to watch. However, the romance is shallow.

...while it doesn't achieve the brilliance of the modern Batman franchise, and while it certainly has a few flaws... the action is undeniably well-done and there are still good character bits throughout.
