Action-packed, briskly-paced and featuring a stellar cast, Man of Steel is the best Superman film since the 1978 original and proves DC can match Marvel in the massive scale department.

Action scenes shouldn't be dull, especially large-scale ones devastating half of a city, but that's exactly what threatens to happen here.

[Zach] Snyder who made his mark with the film 300 can manipulate images but fails to bring them to life.

A definite step-up from the last attempt to revive this character, but there's something still missing from this origin story. Other franchise builders have done more with less, but here that isn't for lack of trying.

Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is a gritty and realistic take on one of the most iconic superheroes ever. It's visually astonishing and action-packed.

Action-filled but less than super: yet another summer blockbuster

No fun costume change in a phone booth, no wowing humans with his powers and no repartee with reporter Lois Lane.

A solid film, but a solid Superman?

Snyder delivers the type of undeniable, overwhelming charge with which he's become Sny-nonymous, and his affinity for spectacle strongly courses throughout.

The screenplay by David S. Goyer is like an arm wrestling match between brain and muscle, and when one takes charge the other falls out of line.

Uma boa releitura do personagem. Se era necessária, porém, é outra história.

The worst Superman movie since 1987's Superman IV: The Quest for Peace...

Man Of Steel plunges headfirst into a loud, breathless science-fiction slugfest, offering much spectacle but little wonder.

Super-duper-overStatement. A cataclysm-caravan of speeches, doomed and desolate landscapes, proclamations of glorious destiny or rebirth, and sprawling, stone-faced seriousness. Can't save itself from self-suffocating grandiosity.

For two-thirds of the running time, the film is grandly entertaining.... But then, as we get into the climactic battles, the level of wanton destruction becomes excessive, even tacky.

The battles between Superman and the evil Kryptonians set a new standard for on-screen urban destruction, but they also give us pause: Aren't hundreds, even thousands being killed in the riveting, spectacular smashing of skyscraper after skyscraper?

Man Of Steel suffers most in its final hour where in degenerates into a seen-it-all-before, CGI-laden action fest.

Man of Steel indirectly tackles the conundrum of how a mankind engrained in monolithic religion greets the concrete proof of a mythological figure. Is it possible for an alien from Krypton to reside alongside an unquestioning faith in Christ?

The movie consists of endless declamation, endless violence.
