A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

My Comments:

This movie blows. Not that I was expecting it to be good, I mean it is Superman directed by Zack Snyder afterall but I thought that maybe, just maybe, with that cast it could be decent. No. It isn't. It's bloated. It's ridiculous. The fight scenes are overly long and confusing. There's not really any chemistry between Kent and Lane. And they kill Russell Crowe TWICE. They kill Kevin Costner, too.

About the only plus I can give it is that Crowe and Cavill look great so there is some eye candy to be had. Still, 2 stars is a generous rating.
