Here's what the critics are saying:
Superman is in fine form in director Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel," a more serious take on the Last Son of Krypton than we've seen before. The cast is top-notch, the writing crisp (for the most part) and the direction solid and sometimes even inspired.
The pacing is tight, and the movie never loses momentum – which is remarkable, considering it clocks in at nearly two and a half hours. . . Perhaps the biggest flaw in "Man of Steel" is how seriously the movie takes itself. Attempts at humor are so infrequent and out of place that they feel off-putting. Rarely does anyone crack a smile – audience members included. — Tierney Sneed, U.S. News & World Report
This film is too sober and action-obsessed to indulge in moments of exhilaration. "Steel" offers captivating production design, a few thrilling action sequences and generally good acting, but it does not equal – much less improve on – the 1978 Christopher Reeve "Superman." Or 2006's "Superman Returns" for that matter. — Carla Meyer, The Sacramento Bee
Eventually, though, what seals the movie's doom—as inventive entertainment, though perhaps not as a commercial venture—is its surrender to the lower power of coarsegrained action and computer-generated images of inexplicable banality. — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
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. — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
The only moments of real spectacle come when Superman learns to fly. He rockets through the air like a comet, and it's thrilling. There aren't enough of these gee-whiz moments of wonder in "Man of Steel." Never has a race to save the fate of humankind seemed so tedious. — Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
