Goofs

Anyone who lives in Kansas (or any other state in "Tornado Alley") is taught that hiding under a bridge or an overpass in the middle of a tornado is likely suicide because of the uncontrollable debris fields & random possible funneling effects, which makes the winds even stronger, sucking people out to certain death. Jonathan Kent would have known this, and it is unthinkable he would tell others to hide under the nearby overpass.

However, while this would certainly be true in modern times, the scene in question takes place in 1997, as shown on Jonathan's tombstone. As mentioned in the Trivia section, overpasses were still considered safe in the 90s because of a news crew that famously escaped harm underneath one, and it wasn't until 1999 that the National Weather Service advised strongly that people avoid overpasses during tornadoes.

Jor-El: 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!
Lor-Em: Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Jor-El: Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Ro-Zar: Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
Jor-El: No, everybody here is already dead. Give me ...

The worlds greatest superhero gets the movie he deserves.
13 June 2013 | by (Longford,Ireland) – See all my reviews

I saw Man Of Steel last night at an advance screening and at no point was I looking down on the movie.From the trailers and TV spots the movie really gets you interested and dying for more.And the Movie itself soars(yes I know ha-ha)above the expectations.

First of all Henry Cavill is an excellent Clark Kent/Superman.He really gives the character that "not wanted" or "don't feel like you belong" feeling.The cast in the movie is excellent including Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon.Russell Crowe really expands on Jor-el's character and makes him more than just a voice helping Clark.Michael Shannon as Zod is terrific.He was even better than Superman 2's Zod.

The fight scenes in the movie are astonishing.It makes up for all the lack of conflict Superman Returns had.The fight scenes are very destructive yes but there is a very good story around it so it wasn't just mindless explosions like Transformers.Man of steel was by far the best movie of the year.
