SYNOPSIS/PLOT Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young man who feels alienated from others because he has powers beyond anyone's imagination. Clark, who was transported to Earth years ago from dying planet Krypton, an advanced alien planet, struggles with the ultimate question – "Why am I here?" Raised by his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) in rural Kansas, Clark is shaped by their values and soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. When the world comes under attack, can Clark's abilities be used to maintain peace or will they ultimately be used to divide and conquer? Clark has to become the hero known as "Superman," not only to protect his loved ones but to take his place as the world's last beacon of hope.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A humorless tone and relentlessly noisy aesthetics drag down this heavily hyped, brilliantly marketed tentpole attraction. (...) Snyder seems averse to staging a single scene in which there isn’t something catastrophic happening" (Scott Foundas: Variety)
"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 (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
"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." (Todd McCarthy: The Hollywood Reporter)
"At once frantically overblown and beautifully filigreed, 'Man of Steel' will turn on everyone it doesn’t turn off" (Manohla Dargis: The New York Times)
"The Clark Knight. (...) 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 (...) Rating: **** (out of five)" (Dan Jolin: Empire)
"Man Of Steel doesn’t lack for spectacle, but after a while its emphasis on grand gestures and unwavering gravitas stops feeling heroic and begins to seem like overkill. (Tim Grierson : Screendaily)
"‘Man of Steel’ feels both modern and traditional (...) is punchy, engaging and fun (...) Rating: **** (out of five)" (Dave Calhoun: Time Out)
"Superman reboot provides visual fireworks when our hero flies but liaison between Clark Kent and Lois Lane is a damp squib. (...) The whole film ends up feeling weighed down. (...) Rating: *** (ouf ot five)" (Andrew Pulver: The Guardian)
"In Man of Steel, There's Greatness in the Superman Origin Story. You'll believe a man can fly -- and is mostly worth watching. (...) [Henry Cavill] humanizes the gargantuan movie around him." (Stephanie Zacharek: Village Voice)
"Henry Cavill has the strapping good looks of the comic icon, and humanity to match his superheroism (...) Rating: ***1/2 (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
"Snyder films the violence in 'Man of Steel' the way he films most of the rest of the picture (...) It's a choice, and not a bad one, necessarily (...) but by the end it's a visually limiting one" (Michael Phillips: Chicago Tribune)
"Deploying an impeccable American accent, Brit Henry Cavill may be as charming as the late great Christopher Reeve (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Lou Lumenick: New York Post)
"Snyder tries to up the spectacle ante with ever more explosions, crashes, ... (...). But the result is (...) a genre that has finally reached the point of (...) exhaustion (...) Rating: *1/2 (out of four)" (Ann Hornaday: The Washington Post)
