I don't know how many Superman movies that I've seen. But I've seen a lot of them. When I was bored last night, I broke down, went to the theater, dropped $12 and viewed it.
The movie was worth the money primarily because I do like SciFi movies and BIG special effects. The film has both.
Russell Crowe (Jor El) did his usual memorable job of Academy Award acting. If you like Russell Crow, you'll like the movie. He's in a lot of it, not just in the beginning.
The beginning of the movie (before Krypton explodes) is my favorite, and by far the most interesting.Antje Traue (Faora Ul) was smoking hot, and was a pleasure to watch on screen.

Michael Shannon (General Zod) is a good actor and showcased his talents in the film -- and did as good a job as possibly could have been done with that roll.
Henry Cavil (Superman) did a good job with the roll, which has been played by a long list of other Hollywood leading men. I remembered his role in the Showtime series, Henry VIII as I watched his portrayal of Superman.
It's not like previous Superman movies, while being true to the franchise. But it's a Sci Fi movie. If you don't like Sci Fi, you may not enjoy it as much as those who do.
