PostSubject: Man of Steel , did you go see it?   Sun Jun 16, 2013 7:39 am

I was apprehensive about the movie from the start and was not sure that it would measure up but i was surprised how epic this film was. From the get go you are thrown into it and the rest is a fun epic ride all the way to the end. I have never seen a movie with so much intense action that does the movie justice. This easily beats the Batmans, the Iron Mans and the avengers flick for both scope and cheer visual spectacle.

The actors are spot on. The storyline is intelligent and make sense for this generation. There are no real sissy romantic moments for lack of better term that don't fit and derails the storyline. The visual are just above anything else i have seen so far in an action Sci-fi flick.

The costume of Superman works and the rest of the costumes in the movie make sense. Nothing looks fake and is extremely well done special effects wise.

The music is awesome. I thought that nobody could beat John Williams score from the original movie but Hans Zimmer has done a fantastic job with the themes of the movie.

The only thing i can say that is negative about the movie is that Superman/Clark is a little bit too naive looking in this one both as superman and has Clark but i am sure he is going to gain maturity as he goes on into the other films.

When i got out of the theatre after the show i heard someone say that it was a little too over the top. I have to completely disagree. Its a Superman film, it has to be epic. I would have hated to see Superman pick up daisies or have lame fights thru out the film.

If you are into comic books you know that this film fits and works. If you are not into comics, you will see this as an action flick that you may or may not like because of the intensity. We have had a lot of intense films graphic wise in the recent past and people are getting used to them so seeing Superman smash thru a city block can be considered either epic from a comic fan or just another action scene for an action film person's perspective. So you have to judge the films based on your taste i would say.But Comic fans owe themselves to go. This sets the bar real high for upcoming Super Hero films.

Superman also does something i never expected in the film. I wont tell you what it is but it changes the way i see the legend. My jaw dropped when i saw this. I never saw it coming. That moment was well done but not well handled after, the moment was washed or brushed off as not significant after it happened but it will stay in your mind forever and i am sure it will spark a lot of debates down the road.

An epic masterpiece! Now all we need is to have a Doomsday fight!

Bud, I like your review on this movie.  I don't have the opportunity to go to the theater to see any movies these days but I like all the comic book related movies.

very nice review Bud i agree with what you've said. I saw it on Sunday night and i loved it. Very entertaining and 'epic' is definitely the word. The visual effects are excellent (although a little bit too much CG fighting in some scenes for my liking). The sound is mind blowing especially the world changer machine, totally awesome and very loud!!! The plot and backstory are well written and nicely interwoven throughout the movie. Very cool Cool
