My very basic review of this would be "thank you". I'm extremely grateful for this cut.

Man of Steel was a near-miss for in in theaters, and I just knew there was a great Superman movie in there somewhere. The cuts make sense (and eliminate so much of that on-the-nose Goyer dialogue and needless subplots) from a storytelling standpoint, the movie seems to move a hundred times faster with the improved pacing, and the color regrading was fantastic. Characters are much smarter, scenes get to the point, and a lot of the unneccessary (albeit very cool) scenes are removed. I do wish there was a way to get rid of the piece of dialogue from Pa Kent ("Should I have let them die?" "....maybe.") because that just seems so out-of-character, with how we've all grown up with him as Clark's confidant and guide through his early years, but other than that this is so, so good. I'm hoping this edit doesn't create any sort of continuity inconsistencies with BvS, but I'm optimistic any of those would be very minor. It's amazing how something as relatively subtle as restoring the classic John Williams score can turn a flawed movie on its head.

Outstanding, just great work overall. This is going to be in my regular rotation for sure. Congrats and thank you!

I loved this edit. The original cut is grey and dull, bordering on unwatchable. Agent 9 has brought it back to life and truly made it feel like a Superman film. Some of the aspects I enjoyed the most:
- The opening on Krypton. Beautifully trimmed and the score integration/mirror of 1978 Superman opening was really well executed.
- The credits sequence. They look professionally done!
- The re-ordering of the early scenes to focus on Lois learning about Clark as we do. Brilliant stuff, and through a combination of your visual editing and the insertion of the Lois theme, I really bought into their relationship much more in this cut.
- The colour correction. So great to see the red and blue back on the screen. I don't like my Superman movies to be predominantly grey...
- The Music!!! Amazing work, only very few scenes were the stitches evident. You chose the themes so well, and I could really see the effort that had gone into really nailing the key moments throughout the film in a way the original cut didn't get near.
- The pacing. There was not a single shot that you cut that was missed. And thank you muchly for getting rid of scene in the Church, among many others of its ilk.
- The kiss. No longer cringe worthy, it felt natural and appropriate.
- The final shot. Classic Superman. Should never have ended on anything else!

A couple of minor nitpicks
- I know it's a tough compromise with picture quality and file size, but there was a lot of digital distortion in the blacks/shadows, especially evident when Pa Kent shows Clark his spaceship.
- Despite the awesomeness of your score work, there were a couple of music transitions that were noticeably abrupt, such as from the daily planet theme to superman destroying the satellite.
- Some clunky dialogue that could possibly be trimmed remains. eg, Faora's "Evolution always wins" conversation with Clark.

So, all in all, a very professionally executed score replacement, but also so much more. I'll never watch the original again. This is a fanedit to show to your friends as a great example of what the medium can do. Well done Agent 9!

This is one of the best fanedits that has ever been created. Completely redeems a garbage movie in a way I never thought would be possible. Simply outstanding.

Agent9 has done it again, taking a big-budget and successful movie that received negative reviews and turned it into a much more enjoyable film. John Williams' score was perfectly integrated, and improved the film so much. The colour correction was a massive improvement, and made the movie much more pleasing to the eye.

------------------SPOILERS AHEAD--------------------

The flashback sequences were moved around in such a way that they seem less spontaneous and more appropriate to certain parts. Although it was weird to start Clark's journey off with instantly becoming Superman before we actually meet the character felt odd, it didn't bother me that much.

Loved the removal of Superman's dad, he still remains in certain scenes but only to deliver some good dialog and progress the story, rather than dying and making overly dramatic and pointless screentime that has nothing to do with the overall plot.

Krypton is now much better, though the action scenes and special effects were stunning, they also served as pointless screentime. The opening is now less than ten minutes and gets straight to the point, introducing Zod and his motivations.

---------------------SPOILER END--------------------

Overall, Agent9 has done an amazing job, the cuts are all reasonable. This is now my go-to version of 'Man of Steel'
