I love a lot about what was done in this, but there were a couple of deal breakers that meant ultimately I had to quit.
The colour grading is fantastic, most of the edits are also fantastic.
everything seems to flow well and it feels like a professional job.
Some of the choices however, do not sit right with me. The use of the hero theme is laid on way too thick for my tastes. it loses it's impact.
Then the part where he 'learns to fly'... it is just way too easy and feels like fanservice rather than an emotional character moment.
I would have liked to watch all the way through, but the music killed it for me.

Aside from all that, I think the way pa kent was dealt with was awesome. I much prefer the way this was presented.

I had a lot of issues with the original - it felt slow and ponderous to me and the visually was way too dark. This is a much tighter edit, and the cuts that have been made to 'spiteful' Supes make a positive difference. Great use of the bombastic soundtrack! The reviews below really say everything that I feel - you've really increased my enjoyment of Man of Steel!

First let me say what others have said, the colour regrading is fantastic, the palette of the original film was one of the main problems, but here it is fixed, the reds and blues are bright.

A lot of the other problems I had with Man of Steel have also been fixed. Jor-El being one of them. Generally speaking I think the pacing for this film is much tighter. I really like the handling of the Jonathan Scene in particular thought I would probably remove "I let my father die"

This will be my go-to version going forward.
Thank you.

I was somewhat bored of Man of Steel, so when I saw that TM2YC made an edit, I just had to check it out.

A lot tighter - Excellent work, TM2YC! 10/10
