“Man of Steel” reboots the Superman legend. It sticks mostly to our hero's beginnings, with Russell Crowe launching his baby son to earth as the planet Krypton disintegrates.

Once superman grows up, the bad guy returns to take over the earth and reestablish his planet. So the battle begins. Henry Cavill as Superman looks great but doesn't say much.
