Directed by Zack Snyder

Finally I have seen the movie they all talk about, Man of Steel, and all I can say is, “nice reboot but not as great as the first Batman reboot movie.”
You have to hand it to Warner Bros, they promised us an explosive experience and they delivered an explosive experience, because the last time I saw this much destruction two terminators were going at it in Terminator 3, (mind you, we have heard that there will be a trilogy of the Terminator coming soon staring no other than Arnold himself.)

Back to the Man of Steel, I wish much work was put into the story, for me all that this movie packed was just destruction upon destruction, that at the end the first thing that came to my mind was,
“I don’t want to be the guy responsible of cleaning up the mess that this Kryptonians did.”

This movie is just packed with names from the producers to the director, down to the cast, we have big names like Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El, which was a gimmick to bring in cinema goers as Warner Bros was looking to make their money back one way or another, if you are not a comic book fan, then you must be a fan of one of these people. Because this movie is a little different from the normal superman tale that we know and the whole action scenes just envelopes the whole story.

I won’t say this movie is whacked, because it was fun to see, but it is not that good either, take away all the action, destruction and explosion all you have is just a lame excuse for a superman reboot.

DC Entertainment has begun a universe for their heroes with this movie, which showcases Superman’s life from the time of Krypton to the time in the farm to the point where he became earth’s number one hero.
I’m glad for DC because other than the Batman series, nothing else seems to be working for them the stupid Green Lantern film is still in my memory as the second the worst superhero movie I have seen only beaten by Dare Devil.
After this, I guess the next DC film I hope to see is Flash, and if they can sum up the courage to do a Wonder Woman film I will definitely go see it.

With this I know that there will be more of Superman to see in the near future, I do hope DC will finish up with the remainder of the Justice League crew, that is do a movie introducing them before they swing them all together into one movie.

My final words on Man of Steel, well if you have not seen it, you should, but it is not great.


  1. Instead of being very, very happy with the movie, I was just optimistic that the sequels will probably expand on this universe and make it even better. Let’s hope that is actually the case. Good review T. Lag.

  2. I do hope so also...

    Thank You Dan

  3. Well, your verdict is right on this one - this movie under delivered.
    I went to the cinema hoping to recapture how I felt the first time I sat beside my dad and we watched Christopher Reeves BE Superman, while John William's score blared in the background. That was the day Superman became MY hero. Other men in tights came and left, but Kal-el has always been The One.
    Fast forward about three decades later and I'm sitting in the hall with my friend, watching a movie that's supposed to be Superman but just feels hollow. Oh, it's a 21st Century re-imagining alright; the action and CGI are relentless. But there's no soul.
    Superman has always been about the human ideal of doing the right thing and being good. This had Michael Shannon looking like he was about to take a crap. This left me uninspired. I cant even believe David S. Goyer wrote the script - Its empty.
    That's not saying I wouldn't score this higher than the reviewer. I mentally gave it a 7/10. My disappointment stems from what I know could have been and what we got.
    The only hope I have is that the studio will make enough profit to do a sequel and hopefully, a proper Superman movie.

    I love reading what you have to say anytime, God bless and increase you.

    Well to be honest, 7 would have been too high for this movie, I was done watching it hit me, more than 50% of the movie had Kal-el and Zod throwing themselves all over Metropolis.

    I just felt it was overdone. But all the same, thanks a lot for your comment I truly appreciate it.
