Director: Zach Snyder
Staring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Christopher Meloni, Kevin Costner
First off, I have to say that I might be a tad biased towards this film, since Snyder is one of my favorite directors. I might not be a huge Superman fan but if they make more movies like this I would definitely become a bigger Supe fan!
Now I know that some may not like this movie since a lot of people are more into Superman in the comics then in films, but I found it to be more enjoyable than any other Superman films that I have seen! Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I respect what others might feel about this film.
Krypton is under siege and close to destruction, baby Kal-el is sent to earth to be a symbol and protect the planet earth. Throughout the film they integrate Clark Kents childhood into what’s happening in the here and now. He must confront his race to stop them from taking over the planet to replace what they had lost but not without taking casualties. Superman must decide whether or not Earth is ready to know the truth about his extraterrestrial heritage.
Man of Steel has its action packed moments, great dialogue and some amazing eye candy! (Especially Cavill and Melonie aka Det. Stabler from Law&Order:SVU) Can’t wait to see if Man of Steel will set in motion a great movie series. Kid friendly too!!
Well done Zach Snyder & Christopher Nolan!! Look forward to the next superman film!
