OJ's Movie Review - Man of Steel

Okay! The new, modern, Zack Snydered Superman is here! Lets review:

  So lets start off with my previous experiences with Superman - comics? Never read them. Original run of films? I faintly remember seeing the first two; after that I then saw Superman Returns only last year because nothing else was on TV, so I wasn't really bothered about superman but then I saw this awesome trailer with action, proper sci-fi, realistic shots and it was looked great. It really made me want to see Man of Steel. So I went to the cinema and watched it. The movie itself; I really really really loved the beginning - yes, you get this entire alien world with alien creatures and alien ships and alien landscapes, it's really cool to watch, it reminded me of Avatar in some ways, with how they made the scenes look; so everything's happening on Krypton and they send baby to Earth... and now he's an adult. Yes, they go through his childhood through lengthy flashbacks, which I'm not really a big fan of; I like my chronology. So that kinda disappointed me and then because of these flashbacks we're about half-way into the film until the actual plot begins. Zod and everything comes down and now we have some real action scenes - a lot of them. The last hour I think no one actually takes a break, its just action, action, action. Although it had really good CGI and things falling apart, super hero and villain smashing buildings, the usual sci-fi movie stuff that we enjoy, I have to say I did yawn during this. I don't know why, the scenes were pretty epic, but unfortunately, you've seen this formula before. So all-in-all Man of Steel wasn't as good as I expected but a good watch anyway.

  1. Could have been so much better, but was okay for a superhero movie in the summer. Good review OJ.
