Laurence Fishburne based his performance as Perry White on CBS correspondent Ed Bradley: "Ed was a friend, a mentor, and a role model for me. Particularly because he worked in journalism, and he was the kind of guy who walked with kings, but he had the common touch." In homage to Bradley, White has an ear piercing. See more »

Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Look to the stars, like our ancestors did, for habitable world's within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?

Buildings blowing,pumps exploding,guns blazing,CGI and special effects overflowing...NOT WHAT I WANTED
I had been waiting for Man Of Steel for more than a year. Watched all its trailers on IMDb itself. And look what they did.
Snyder wanted to make his masterpiece. He probably considers himself a genius. But seriously are we so foolish that we consider such a movie with no decent plot and no clever twists or character development not only good but GREAT.Well its not.
The first half is basically introducing kal-el and his extraordinary abilities and hiding them from the world. It is slow , uninteresting but however provides decent possibility of a lift up in the second half
Now is when it gets worse.
The second half is filled with special effects, CGI and nothing more.The last half hour had me yawning and cursing zack snyder.
This could have been a masterpiece. It had all the elements but missed the thread that ties it all together. And i do not think that nolan was associated with the project in any creative way. The first half was nothing special and the second half was just blowing stuff and 'aliens' beating each other,buildings been torn apart and similar BS.
Almost all the actors were wasted.Although Kevin Costner was good in the screen time he had. Russel Crowe was completely wasted and so was adams. Henry Cavill didn't have to do much but to make weird sex faces while flying. Nothing special about the others either.
I had great expectations from this but they were not met. Rather i left the theater bored, cheated and poorer.
So i suggest not to waste your money on this.The 3d was nothing special either. Overall this was a huge disappointment.
And please don't compare this to Batman Begins. Its not even in the same class.
1/10 and thats because i am a generous fella........and i don't have a choice.
