Took my kids to see this yesterday and we loved it.  Superman 2 was my favorite of the movies I watched as a kid and so was anticipating seeing Zod, but wasn't sure if I would like the new one more.  Turns out I did.  My son commented it was his favorite of the super hero movies he's seen (not sure I agree with him there, but the kid is entitled to his own opinion).  One thing I liked about this movie over Superman 2 is how today's special effects allowed them to really give Zod and Faora (Ursa) the appearance of being much more deadly than they appeared in the older movie.

Oh, and one more funny thing...after the army woman commented that Superman was hot, my daughter confirmed.

Russell Crowe is up for a Prequel

Quote
Would Russell Crowe play Jor-El again in a new Superman movie? Yes, but no need to keep asking him...

With Man Of Steel closing in on a $300m take in the US, the latest big screen reboot of Superman can be called a success for Warner Bros. And for Russell Crowe, this has meant one thing in particular: he's been asked a lot as to whether he'd be looking to reprise the role of Jor-El in a Man Of Steel prequel.

Admitting that he's "sick of reading the same question" on his Twitter feed, Crowe put the record straight, saying that "a lot of you are asking about a KRYPTON prequel, if that's something you feel strongly about let @Legendary Pictures know your thoughts". He went on to admit that "if it came up, I'd give the tights another go".

It's an unlikely direction for the Superman movie franchise, in truth. But we wouldn't rule out all concerned finding a way to shoehorn Crowe into the now-inevitable Man Of Steel 2

Watched this last night and really liked the first half and then the second half was wanton destruction on a massive scale and it just lost my interest.

finally saw it tonight, and liked it quite a bit.  now that's how you do a superpowered smack down:  violent with lots of damage.  no silly vinyl villain costumes, no magic saran wrap, just pure beatdowns.

some other thoughts:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was surprised they left Emil Hamilton on the plane, and wonder if they find .  Felt like they did a great job getting his look down.

I appreciate that they offed Zod like that.  With no way to exile him back to the Phantom Zone it made sense.

I watched this a couple nights ago and I felt the same way.  That really felt like super powered dudes kicking the shit out of each other to the best of their ability.

of course, all the Christ symbolism could have been toned down.  hell, the part where he is talking in the church has a stained glass window of Jesus that makes it look like JC is wearing a red cape.

I've only watched the first 10 minutes, but I enjoy that version of Krypton much more than how it's been portrayed for the last 30 or so years. It reminded me of the pre-John Byrne Krypton with thought beasts and fire falls.

As I said, not seen this yet, but I have seen Justice League: War (the New 52 based animated). I also rewatched Superman (1978) lately. If the Man of Steel character is like the one in War, I much prefer the older characterization.

I liked the movie a lot, but I hated Henry Cavil as Superman. His acting was really stiff and at times you could hear his British Accent. They rarely had him speak while in costume, but when he does it is really wooden.
