Overall this movie is great! It has flaws but it still delivered. For instance, they didn't really explore the loving side of Superman that is the reason for saving humans. But i get it that this could just be a different interpretation of his motives. The relationship between Clark and Lois was almost spontaneous and didn't really develop. Not to mention there was so much action! Sure this is Superman and he deserves a big movie, but that action is just so mind numbing and distracts from the plot. I really did like how they explored Clarks childhood just enough to give justification to his emotions. Although there are criticism about the ending, I thought it was well made. Clark spent his entire youth listening to his father to control himself and he had to learn to make a tough decision. I think this movie has a lot of potential for a sequel if they do it right. I look forward to being able to look back on this and watch it as part of a trilogy and not a stand alone film.
The cast is well chosen but the Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Not that she performances bad but she is just not Lois Lane. Smart choosing to focus in Krypton. Probably, the less repeated story told about Superman. You can really feel Christopher Nolan's touch in the script and, probably, that's the problem. It is just too similar to Batman Begins. Also, the script repeats Batman's stupidities like the way in which Klark Kent father dies or feeling that Crowe, Superman's father, has everything under control, even his own stupid death. Tons of FX with incredible fights that may feel exhausting for some but that I think are totally justified in this character. The OST is again in the hands of Hans Zimmer that keeps abusing of the drumming and grave sounds. All in all, still looking forward for the next movie of this reboot.
