Am I the only one that thought the origin story was done well enough? Particularly the flashbacks? Everyone fucking knows Supermans origins, there isn't much of a point in going over his early years for the billionth time. The flashbacks served their purpose well, but like others have said, they didn't add much to emotional depth to the film. I don't think it needed it.
I just wanted to see a strong guy who can fly and shoot lazers out of his eyes kick the living shit out of things, and that is what I got. I don't see why the origin on earth has much importance, but I will say the Krypton stuff was done well enough.

I always thought it had a little more in common with The Nightmare Before Christmas than Toy Story. You know, the "bad guy" wanting to be more than what he was always labelled as? Not the most original way to introduce a character, but they made it work I thought. I felt the film itself deserved a little more praise than it got for being so damn endearing, and actually making Sarah Silverman funny.
