Film Review: Man of Steel

After seeing Zack Snyder's direction of Sucker Punch, I had an idea of the style he would bring to the visuals in this film.

Of course, for any DC Comics/Marvel film, the extremes of any previous outing are turned up to eleven, and in this, that rule is kept, as well as the style. This is Superman they are making a story of, so naturally the graphics are quite literally at times, out of this world.

None of the actors will win Academy awards (for this film at least) but they all bring a believability and convincing performance to their respective roles.

Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni, Richard Schiff, all brought the story to life.

I had high expectations of this film and I am delighted to say that they were not only met, but exceeded them enormously. It was like watching the last Harry Potter film. After reading the books, you knew how it all ended, but even so, I was still thinking, "okay, they're okay, its all part of the plan, he knows what he's doing," etc, and it happened in this film as well.

This was a highly entertaining thrill ride, from start to finish.

Anyone seeking a fun night out at the movies, I recommend this one.


  1. This quote is from the last Zack Snyder film I watched:

    “Wiseman: If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.”
