Ignore most of the critics that have given this film less than stellar reviews.
This is not your father's Superman.
This is not your Superman.
This is not your son's Superman.
It is a new vision, from Krypton to Earth and his upbringing. Remember this is the team responsible for The Dark Knight films and they have taken the same approach for Man of Steel.
Was mostly pleased with the casting. The actions scenes are well done as are the special effects. Henry Clavell and Amy Adams were well suited for Superman and Lois Lane.
Give it a try and take your day out to see it for Fathers Day. I'm sure he will be pleased as well.
