Henry Cavill gets serious about Superman on the backdrop of an epic soundtrack.
Let me just start by saying, holy-cow Batman, where did they find this beautiful, manly, built, chiseled, broody, kind-faced, amazing, perfect, scrumptious man?
... Oh wait, he was in Immortals, but this hair-style really suits him, and unbelievably he's managed to bulk up more.
The story development behind his launch into space from Krypton includes an impressive (actually likeable) portrayal of Jor-El by Russell Crowe, and is just the right length to develop the context that shapes his powers, his fathers role in the rest of the movie, and to show some pretty cool alien technology.
There are two things I didn't really like in this movie
1) The fighting did seem to involve repetitive flying into building scenes
2) Lois Lane and Superman kiss was no where near as hot as it could have been
But these weren't enough to over-shadow the best Superman movie ever made.
All hail the lack of red undies.
And someone get me this guys number.
