Man Of Steel

Spread the Word!

This is my first official review and what better way to start it off then by talking about my favorite superhero… Superman!


I had high hopes when I saw the first teaser trailer for this movie. My heart was pounding in my chest and for a moment I felt like a kid again with a red pillow case tied around my neck and was flying through the hallway pretending I was Superman. Well i’m happy to say that I felt like that while I was watching the movie too. Man of Steel is the best Superman movie I have ever seen. I didn’t think walking into this movie that I would enjoy it more than I did the original Superman movies but I did.

I didn’t think Henry Cavil could be a good Superman. We all know the story of Superman by now so there’s no point in telling you who Superman is, and where he’s from. The beginning of the movie starts off on Krypton. Kal El {Superman or Clark Kent} is just a newborn baby. His father Jor El who is played by Russel Crowe who broke kryptonian laws and had a natural born baby instead of growing him. He wanted his first child to have freewill so to speak.


I’m not going to get into anymore detail because I don’t want to spoil the whole movie for you. General Zod is played by Michael Shannon and I thought he did an amazing job. Everyone brought their A game to this movie. I was a little disappointed in Louis Lane but I eventually started to like her as the movie went on. I loved seeing how lost Kal El was during this movie. Being the only one of his kind and not being able to fit in really tore away at him in the beginning and that’s something Superman needs.

We need to be able to relate to Superman and I think they pulled it off just fine in this movie. The visual effects were in your face and Zack Snyder didn’t pull any strings with them. Man of Steel was action packed, and at times brought a tears to my eyes at least three times during the movie. The destruction that happened when Superman finally went up against Zod was mind blowing. This is the kind of destruction you would see if two superhuman forces clashed against each other in real life.


I like the fact that Superman was inexperienced and made mistakes in the movie. I loved the way they showed his life through flashbacks instead of making the movie an extra hour long to explain everything. Diane Lane and Kevin Costner were perfect as Kal El’s parents. I can go on and on about how awesome this movie is but i’ll simply say that if you’re a Superman fan I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t like this movie. ¬†Superman needed this revamp and I for one can’t wait to see the sequel.

My final verdict for Man of Steel is a 9/10. I loved every minute of this movie and saw it a few more times and enjoyed every single time I saw it. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.
