I grade on an odd curve, it's probably more a straight-B movie but that felt too low. Yeah it is almost a BB feel. I really liked it, more on reflection, and I'll see it again on release but its not quite the Superman movie I would have liked. Still, better than SR more action and look than the Donner film(s) but still lacking "something." I'll stick around for the rest of today to answer any questions/concerns. (Spoiler Coded, of course.)
Actually the Batman Begins comparison I kind of understand. That was a really well-made, great looking movie with a lot of great scenes... that I still somehow had a hard time really loving.

Kinda sounds like you're the same way with this movie.
Yeah, I like it more on reflection but it just lacked... "something" there's also some Status Quo/mythology changes I'm not so sure about. Anyway, I can't wait to see it again on release. Maybe a second viewing in better seats will change my opinions on it. There's not much about the movie I didn't like (hence the high grade) there's just also not much about it I was gaga-over that made me go "That's Superman!" hence the apathetic review. I will say that Clark wearing a Royals t-shirt in one of the scenes got a great reaction from this audience, as did the "I'm from Kansas, sir." Both of those really made me smile.
