Man of Steel fails to be super!

Man-of-Steel

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!

The Man of Steel is a re-interpretation of the Superman franchise. Under the guidance of Hollywood’s own superhero, Christopher Nolan produces the latest version by employing screenwriter, David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder to bring this all to familiar story back to life. I am not going to bore you with the story of Jor-El (Russell Crowe), his newborn son, and the Clark family. Henry Cavill’s (Superman) most amazing feat was landing the role in the first place. His past projects and stiff performances were nothing special to warrant the red cape, but his chiseled body and good looks certainly fit the part.

The film’s main strength is Snyder’s ability to deliver thrilling action scenes, but it is the same old story with a predictable ending and one of the most annoying romances in comic book history. Not so super.
