Goofs

After Zod and Superman's second power blow at each other after the former's "These were my people" speech, Superman is thrown into an abandoned building with Zod following right after. Most noticeably, they enter the building in a straight line from the most disintegrated part of Metropolis. Then Zod blasts the building to Hell with his powerful Heat Vision and jumps off in the opposite direction of the blast, directly leading back to where the fight was "supposedly" to have started. Superman then follows, flying straight through the building, trying to avoid debris. But when he jets out of the collapsing edifice, he exits into the non-damaged section of Metropolis, which should be the other way around entirely. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jor-El: Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Lor-Em: Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Jor-El: Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Ro-Zar: Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
Jor-El: No, everybody here is already dead. Give me ...

A great hero gets a great movie
10 December 2014 | by yashrajs536See all my reviews

When I was watching the trailer for man of steel I felt that this movie will be the greatest movie for Superman and also it will take the sci-fi genre to the another level and finally when I saw the movie all of my expectations were full filled the movies action scenes were new though the origin was old but they had made a superman which is very difficult to make.

I like this movie and waiting for its next sequel.

In this movie Mr.Snyder has given one of the greatest directions in superhero genre. My results for this movie are positive and I hope the next installment will be greater than this one.

So after watching this film my expectations are now higher from its sequel hope it will also exceed my expectations
