Man of Steel (2013) Review

MAN OF STEELWhen I heard about an updated version of Superman, directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises, The Prestige), I thought, “This is going to be awesome!”

Sadly, the end product is not awesome. It’s entertaining to be sure but I wouldn’t count it as one of the best superhero movies ever made. Or even the best Superman movie ever made. (That title still goes to Richard Donner’s 1978 classic, Superman.)

First, I’ll list the good things.

Henry Cavill was a good choice to play Superman. He physically looks the part and he bridges the many generations of Superman in his appearance. He recalls Christopher Reeve as often as he does Tom Welling while still being an improvement over Brandon Routh. (Who really wasn’t that bad in 2006’s Superman Returns.)
