Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The way I saw it, Zod simply was toying with Superman. Supes truly did plead and plead with Zod and had this look on his face coming to the realization of Zods fate. He DIDN'T WANT TO DO SO but Zod's "NEVER" gave him no choice. Cavill pulled off a heart-felt performance in a controversial scene. Again, his pleads to Zod spoke of fear and warning. I loved it. So did all else.



I can't praise Cavill enough....

Just got back from a 10pm 3D screening in BC. I was a little worried going in but thought it did a great job of reintroducing the character. I think the word of mouth will be strong.

First off I want to say the romance between Superman and Lois wasn't nearly as bad as some critics made it out to be. Tons of action and an applause followed at the end. The 3D was also very well done. It wasn't jarring or distracting at all. Also my sister's scenes made it into the movie. I think she may have had a line or two but I don't remember. They finally credited her IMDB page so here it is.

Wow.... I'm truly at a loss for words. This movie is amazing. I just got back from seeing it and am still trying to digest the awesomeness of this movie. I can't remember ever having such high expectations for a film and having those expectations be exceeded. When I first arrived at the theater, the crowd wasn't huge, but a half hour before the film it got crowded pretty fast.

The last fight with Zod,

when Supes broke Zod's neck got a big holy sh#& reaction from a bunch of people
, I totally didn't see that coming. At the end of the film everyone applauded. It was an epic event for sure.

HAHA... actually I purposely watched movies on the 2 newest IMAX to see which one is better (basically auditioning them), so I pretty much had to watch it on the Imax for the first time... I would not want to go to some tiny ass screen somewhere with crappy projector and sound system...

Crowd was generally pleased.

A few were upset (like me) that there was no after credits scene.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
You know when I 1st heard of how Zod died I was a little spectcale but after seeing it on screen you know that Superman really didn't have a choice


Overall a pretty good movie will probably go see it again.

The second time around, a lot of people stayed. Some dudes I passed on the front row stayed. I stepped aside, tapped the one on the shoulder and said "You guys stayin for the end-credits? There are none, I've seen it once already.."

Whoever stayed were probably disappointed haha. Personally, I'm happy with it. Let the sequel do more of the talkin to a connected world.

Crowd seemed to enjoy it. People were obviously shocked at that certain point as others have mentioned. There was clapping at the end, which I felt compelled to join in on. Next step for these crowd reports is seeing reactions from crowds that aren't full of fans that would show up for such early screenings. I mean, these are the crowds that are bound to end up clapping for the film, so it'll be nice to see reactions from a more general audience.

Nice enthusiastic crowd here in LA. Lots of people wearing Superman shirts and even a few guys wearing red towels as capes.

There was a ton of applause after the battle of Smallville, when Supes emerges from underneath the train. Well, before Supes shows up. I have no idea what that was about, honestly!

Applause for Supes killing Zod. Nobody here had a problem with it....

A nice applause but then some boos when the people that stuck around found out that there wasn't a post-credit scene.

Good movie. Best action scenes I've ever seen in a superhero movie but it lacked depth in it's story and I felt as if the first half tried cramming too many things and rushing it as well.

Fremont CA over here.

XD Theater with Dolby Atmos. Standing applause by MANY. I was one of them, the movie was thoroughly enjoyable. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. I brought along my mother who hates these kinds of movies and she absolutely loved it!

How do you compare Dolby Atmos with the regular 7.1?

That's good to hear, as I was hoping they didn't waste too much time on the backstory. Sounds like Snyder used the 143 minutes wisely, allowing plenty of time for the action.

Anyone knows how much the 143mins is from opening/end credits? Basically how long is the 'actual movie?'

The showing I went to was packed and the overall feeling was that the audience was pleased but also taken back as the film was intense and quite raw with a deep edge to it unlike the original 1978 Superman: The movie which was very flamboyant and fun in a comic book sense, this film is more realistic and heavy. Also people were disappointed by no after-credit scene ala Marvel's Cinematic Universe forumla.

My girlfriend and myself went to the 7pm showing last night, it was packed. She dressed up in her supergirl costume and I wore the muscle shaded superman shirt with a red cape (hey I'm a pretty skinny dude). A bigger guy showed up and said "That's awesome, I was going to wear my cape but I chickened out. Now I wish I would have." It was fun, people laughed at the appropriate times and loved the movie overall. She snapped this picture when I wasn't expecting it otherwise I would have had a different look on my face LOL
