Superman returns to the cinema in yet another reboot in the movie Man of Steel.
This movie tells a visually stunning account of the last days of Krypton, a detailed story of young Clark Kent’s childhood, and the dramatic battles both physical and mental when Clark’s past catches up with him. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way all humour disappeared from Krypton and Earth leaving us with a rather dry story.
Man of Steel is visually clever and is much better acted and scripted than the last couple of Superman movies before it. But I found it unengaging and some of the characters, in particular Lois Lane, less interesting than I’d hoped. Apparently everyone in Metropolis is always deadly serious about everything.
Recommended for Superman fans and anyone who enjoys clever visual effects.
