I haven't heard the best of reviews yet. The only thing that gets me is the insane amount of corporate sponsorship going on with this movie, it's killing my childhood. So far I've seen Nokia, Dodge, Burger King, Walmart, Twizzlers, Cheez-it's, Army, and I'm sure I'm missing some. But at the end of every one of these commercials, it blasts about going to see this movie. I haven't seen this kind of corporate raping for a movie before. For that fact, I hope it does flop. No one will ever beat Christopher Reeve. [/rant]

I'm going to take a wait and see what others say since I'm also an original Superman fan but since then it just doesn't seem Superman films or attempts at them ever has been able to get off the ground and build any kind of momentum.

Saw it. Definitely not like the older ones. Really dark thoughout the whole movie. He's an orphaned misfit with a crappy childhood who's now been sorta outed by Zod sparking fear and paranoia of the alien who's been hiding among us and the usual miltary shoot him first ask questions later routine.

I saw it today. I thought it was good. Definitely pretty dark but that's expected with Christopher Nolan as a producer

Definitely the best Superman / DBZ movie of all time. Very good action movie.

this movie was good even when it started to go Transformers on us. The memento flashback stuff was good too :)

Still really like the 70's version for not straying from the traditional comic book story line but this one was good to show that you can only push someone so far before they push back
