During Zod's speech he says "to those of you who know of his (Clark's) location, the fate of your planet rests in your hands." I love the look on Lois's face when Zod said that line. She looks terrified/stunned/and guilty all at the same time.

I actually really felt it at the very start of the movie when Jor-El was holding the new born, they paused on him being held and gave you enough time to stare and think "wow.....that will become superman"
Fantastic way to start the movie

Loved the Zod vs. Superman collision beside a Metropolis building, Snyder knows how to do comic book panels in movies.

Then he (Jor-El) says, "Look.." and Kal looks and says, "Lois.." it's the way he said Lois..it was PERFECT.
Yep I agree with this. However Jor- El says "Strike that panel"

Another thing I love is all the female characters are playing important roles n be given enough scene times. From Lara (her performance is so powerful... every lines would make u wanna cry), martha (she is excellent, so sweet n so warm), foara ( totally badass), lois ( brilliant, smart and lovely) to the silly captain. Lol. I think MOS is the only CBM that allows so much female characters development... yet it didnt sacrifice the male characters importance.

I'm probably reading too much into this, but I felt there were some sexual undertones in the scene when Clark cauterizes Lois's wound with his heat vision. It was probably the "this is going to hurt" line.

I've been meaning to write about this ever since I saw the scene like 5 times already from my theater viewings, but I think one of the things that I enjoyed a lot, was how well the Superman, Zod, and Lois scene at the Train Station was well executed, no pun intended.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm one who would advocate that Superman shouldn't kill his enemies (that are sentient beings) overall, and while I understand wholeheartedly on how controversial this scene was for some, I thought it was quite brilliant, especially if what Snyder said is true about this being the catalyst of Superman establishing his no "killing" rule when it comes to dealing with his opponents.

Like I've mentioned in some posts already, I think it was a brave and bold move to put Superman in a realistic situation where he didn't have a way to save everyone, and that he literally had to choose on who would live and die, one where he couldn't end up saving everyone.

And considering that this was Clark's first outing as Superman, thus him being a rookie when it comes to being a superhero, it's definitely easier to understand on how this situation came about.

Everyone's acting, including the family of four that was put in harm's way, was spot on. And Zimmer's music really heightened the emotions and tension that this scene was emitting. You could see on how it was killing Superman inside to be put in this situation where, if he didn't do something soon, he'd have to witness the family in front of him killed in a very brutal way and I love on how they kept cutting back to great shots of the family cornering up against the wall in horror and crying with shots of Superman pleading Zod to stop what he was doing.

I can't remember the last time where a comic book genre film placed such an emphasis on the emotional damages that a hero can have in taking a life. One could counterattack with saying that we've seen this before with Wolverine and Jean, but Wolverine has already killed several people so he's used to taking a life very easily.

Hell, for how heroic Steve Rogers was, I've seen people use the excuse that he's a soldier first, being an means of brushing off the fact that he's taken the lives of Hydra Soldiers without remorse as well, and yet when Superman is put in a no win situation and when he is shown to immediately regret having done it, he's still bashed for it.

Anyways, I liked how it was only Lois that was present to comfort Superman and how no one else was around to view that very vulnerable moment for Superman (supposedly). Even if they're not in a official relationship or fully aware of their feelings, I'd think that the way they held onto each other was more than enough to show people that these two aren't merely just "friends" or two people simply attracted to each other.

Superman going to the church to ask for advice. Far too often sueperheroes have all the answers...but this time he needed advice...and he went where many would go to get it...brought Clark down to a very human level, very relatable.

I loved the scene when he smashed a hole in the black zero, when he's talking to Jor El. "Strike that panel" and his cape was just flowing to one side.

In the church scene, when Clark tells the priest who he is, the priest gulps and is clearly scared to death for the rest of the scene. He still tries to hide his fear and give Clark good advice. My theatre laughed when he gulped.

It was amazingly done, and acted.

Sent to us for what? To run around in a red cape as a child? I'm sorry bit that is another scene that doesn't work for me. If Jonathan is suppose to see Clark's purpose in being sent to Earth he would have seen it when Clark saved those kids from the bus; not running around in a red cape as a child doing absolutely nothing.

Another little thing I appreciated was Clark and the other Kryptonians not having a perfect hold on their powers from minute one. In this story they weren't portrayed as aliens who were used to being Superpowered, they had been normal for all their lives now they fall on Earth and can do all these things that throw them a bit. I liked that Martha pointed out that baby Clark had a hard time breathing at first.

If all you saw was a child running around in a red cape , and nothing more, I can't fault you for not getting anything more out of that scene, but, for others (myself included), it meant a hell of a lot more on a metaphoric level of sorts. As for the scene where Clark is shown saving the kids on the bus, it was pretty much suggested that this wasn't the first time he did something like that. I'm sure Jonathan was proud of him, but, at the same time, he was also very protective and concerned -- especially because people were starting to talk.

That scene always got a positive response from audiences in my neck of the woods -- especially when the priest gulped nervously at the start of his conversation with Clark. Everyone laughed at that. I'm sure it was influenced by this:

You found another Easter Egg (if that classifies as one). Good job!

Yeah it's my fault that I see no symbolism or purpose in a young Clark running around in a cape and Jonathan watching. Sorry but it just comes off as a lame and serves no purpose, IMO.

Good gracious this movie is definitely a comic book Superman, I don't know how many times I've heard that certain scenes were either inspired or taken right out of the comic books. I don't read them but seeing the writers and director being inspired by the actual source material and not a previous movie makes me smile. Perhaps this will force people to realize Superman does not equal Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve.
