Man of Steel is a very good origin story. Not great, but very good indeed.

It starts with Superman being born. Of course he was Kal-El back then. He is born as the incompetence of the leaders of Krypton has let it to its imminent destruction and in the middle of General Zod’s coup d’état. His parents spirit him away on a spaceship towards Earth with the hope that he can create a new Krypton and also help humankind better itself. Suddenly we have an adult Kal-El, or rather Clark Kent, doing good deeds and trying to keep a low profile. But now General Zod is here and plans to use Kal-El to create a new Krypton here on Earth by totally eradicating the humans. Our hero is not OK with that.

Henry Cavill did an adequate job as Superman. He certainly looked the part and, despite what some promo pictures showed, he looked kind-faced most of the time. Here we are shown Clark Kent as a good man, who struggles to control himself when confronted with the assholes of the world. But he manages even if he’s not above some non-bodily harmful revenge. He acted so very human and that was awesome. That’s all thanks to the Kents. Costner and Lane were excellent as Clark Kent’s parents, specially Costner talking to kid Clark about how he’s meant for greater things so he has to protect his secret until he’s ready. By the way, all of Clark’s backstory growing up is told in flashbacks, which was well done and interesting.
