The movie does suffer from too-long fight scenes and endless destruction of buildings. I liked Henry Cavill in the lead but kept comparing him to Reeves iconic portrayal. Russel Crowe was good as Jor El but Amy Adams didn't quite do it for me as Lois. I thought Crowe matched Brando but Adams paled against Kidder. These comparisons are unfair but represent many who loved the 1978 movie.
In recap: I liked the movie and enjoyed the high tech improvements but thought that it was too long and in need of editing. On a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★.
