Clark Kent (biologically known as Kal-El, son of Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and played by Henry Cavill) is a Kryptonian who was sent to Earth by his parents before Krypton was destroyed and his parents were killed. He was adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane) many years later, Clark is now an adult and is hiding his powers while working at different jobs. But when Krypton’s military General, General Zod (Michael Shannon), send a threatening message to all humans, demanding that Kal-El surrender to him, or humanity will suffer the consequences, Kal-El now must become the hero Superman and save Earth from General Zod. The film’s cast also includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White, and Antje Traue as Faora, Zod’s second-in-command.
This film has good cinematography, visual effects, cast and action. This movie may be a little long (it’s almost 2 and a half hours long), but it’s still worth watching until the end of the movie. It is badly written, though, and it drags on for too long, but it’s still very entertaining.
