Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Zack Snyder‘s (Watchmen & 300) long-anticipated dark and gritty Superman reboot has finally arrived, with the help of producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy). The dust has settled and the results are in. Is Man of Steel as epic as the initial teaser has led us to believe or as emotionally satisfying as the later trailers? Kind of. Snyder visually crafts his strongest-looking film yet, while the writing fizzles out as another middling effort from David S. Goyer. Man of Steel isn’t as great as one might expect, but it’s still very good."
