Summary: Too much re-writing of the character we all know and love. This film was definitely made for 3D as there was so many overly long fight and flight scenes making the plot lose it's way. There was no chemistry whatsoever between Lois Lane and Superman (or Mr 'Hope') so the romantic element was non existent throughout. The casting of Henry Cavill was spot on though. Overall a Super disappointment.
Summary: Obviously I was expecting another movie. I enjoyed this reboot [remake to the older generation]. Zod was a fun enemy although the relentless CGI fighting is pants. Will Kent be fixing everything he broke, btw Super Man surely should have realised a lot earlier on in the story that he would need to terminate his genetically engineered brethren. Not that Super then. And since when did hope begin with a silent S? Maybe Supid Man : Man of CGI is a better title.
Excerpt: Synopsis: A child from the dead planet of Krypton, raised by a couple on Earth to be a good man, must defend the inhabitants of his adopted planet from annihilation by an overly-zealous Kryptonian general who, with a small army of survivors, wishes to see a new Krypton rise from the ashes of a violently transformed Earth. Comments: This darker re-boot of the franchise was much better than "Superman Returns".
Excerpt: Every thing is great in this movie except its 3D. Yest another 2D-3D conversion, and it sucks. 3D means 3D where a clear depth and pops out can be felt and this movie lacks both. Pity, such a great movie can be amazing in real 3D.
Excerpt: Okay, like I have mentioned many times in the past: I have humility. Almost five months after the release of Man of Steel, I decided to give it another watch to see if I maybe over-hyped myself or showed too much of my judgmental side. I took a much closer, less biased look at Man of Steel, and in conclusion: I am pleased. Don't get me wrong, Man of Steel is a very flawed movie.
Excerpt: "The world's too big...so make it small." Everybody knows the story of Superman, its matter of presenting it again on the big screen. It's funny how a ghost manages to do a lot, the love angle between Lois and Superman was rushed and it seems the battles of Superman with Zod dampens the welfare of humans. The length was prolonged due to details of special effects for the settings. Another observation was how dull this version of Lois Lane was depicted.
Excerpt: Steel stumbles to soar high. In fact he does do the job, provide some visual feast. But Snyder has placed overly bloated action to give a feeling that, it did not reach the sky. Yes the action is extravagant, the visual effects are dazzling, the fans get two good surprises, but all are put to bad use by super speed camera movements and the worst use of shaky 3D action. Shaky cams does not give any action scene an impact.
Excerpt: Man of Steel was a good quality movie. True, it was predictable. But let's face it, most superhero movies are. With a movie in a franchise as big as the Superman one, you can't win. Make it too like the comic book and people will be disappointed with the lack of variety in the movies. Vary the movie too much from the comic book and people will feel betrayed that their beloved comic book movie isn't exactly the same as their beloved comic book.
Summary: It was a good movie, no doubt. Though, I am a little disappointed. I wished it would've had more story development and a little less action toward the end of the movie. But all in all, it was a really good movie.
