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.

Superlong is more like it.

The only reason this movie got two stars from me was because it has the character of Superman in it. I love the character of Superman and because of that I was able to make it through the two and a half hours of over stylized crap Zach Snyder filled this movie with. Not that it was all his fault there are a lot of other major issues wit things that happened in this movie. The death toll is incredibly high for a movie staring a character that saves people. And the way they treat Pa Kent is just said and ridiculous. Lastly the run time is Way to long. Every time I thought the movie was over it drug on and on. If you are not a fan of Superman I would not recommend spending your time watching this. If you are a fan of Superman prepare to be a little angry when you are finished watching it.

Blissful exhilaration.

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. I still think Christopher Nolan should have written it, the performances of Cavill, Adams, Fishburne and others are completely wasted, the bullies push around Clark for no reason, the relationship between Clark and Lois is weak and some scenes get sloppy overall. But, since I am writing this review to make up for all my ranting in June, let's talk about some of the thing that I liked:

The main issues of ...

Man of Steel review

"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. Yes we see a glimpse of Lexcorp equipment being demolished but where was Lex Luther in this first installment. The action was more relentless but the story of aliens taking over the planet is done to death (this really felt like War of the Worlds from Spielberg mixed with Chronicle/Xmen).

On the positives, it was great to see Shan...

Steel stumbles to soar high

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. The fights keep going on (exploding buildings, tanker blasts, punches that go on and on without any end, air missiles and the nearly apocalyptic engine thrust). Come on Snyder where is the fun in it? Thanks to the back story of our hero (Nolanís involvement I hope) as the way he grew to become now what he is. Leaving that alone, this steel stumbles with cliches from craft...

A full-length trailer would be appreciated - I still have hopes that Snyder will be able to finally giver Superman the film he deserves. I haven't been watching the development that closely, but believe me, as soon as a major trailer is released, I'll sound off.

There isn't really much to judge in that teaser besides Cavill and the tone. I'm digging both of those. I ultimately like Zack Snyder as a director. I think his Dawn of the Dead remake is solid. I think Watchmen is underrated as hell. 300 is fine. And Sucker Punch is stupid, but watchable, IMO. I think Snyder and Nolan have some great things to offer with Man of Steel.

I don't think Snyder deserves all the critique that's lobbed his way. Sure, his latest, Sucker Punch, is no Inception. But then it wasn't a complete catastrophe.

Still, there's plenty of room for improvement. Hopefully he utilizes it for The Man of Steel.

Brandon Routh looks the part but in just about everything I've seen him in (including his guest role in Chuck) he just doesn't have much emotional range. I can't say yet whether Henry Cavill will be a better choice or not. I'll most likely catch this - I'm hoping Snyder can indeed redeem himself.
