Wow, I didn't really know what to expect with Zack Snyder's rendition of Superman but I didn't expect this... it's simply put it... superb!
Right from the get go, it's action action action. The story is different and they have obviously changed quite a few things compared to the Christopher Reeve films. They have removed the emphasis from the surrounding characters and concentrated solely on the story behind Kal El and General Zod.
I loved the opening sequence in Krypton which was reminiscent of a Matrix/Avatar world with the Pods and flying creatures.
The fight scenes were awesome with both Metropolis and Smallville getting totally trashed! I especially loved the style of fighting between Kal El and Faora which brought back memories of Equilibrium's Gun Kata, sweet!
2 and a half hours flew by (no pun intended) and so much happened in that I'll have to see it again soon to fully appreciate it. 5/5
