Man of Steel (2013) Directed by Zack Snyder Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael ShannonRating: ******
On the planet Krypton, Russell Crowe Battles an evil General While the whole planet Gets hit with the green Meteorites, Which wreak havoc onscreen. The evil General, General Zod, Leaves with his lieutenants To go off and play God. Superbaby Is sent away To become Superman One day. He lands on Earth And works on his bod While the world waits For General Zod. By the time he’s arrived, Superman’s ready To turn the Kryptonians Into confetti. This is a humourless film With too much CGI, Poorly paced, And we don’t like these guys. We might like Superman, But the actors onscreen Are completely unlikable, The more they are seen. None of the feistiness Of Lois Lane Shows through at all. She’s made to look plain. Superman, himself, Has been deprived Of all personality, Which just took a dive.
The only interesting character Is General Zod, Who tries to rule over Earth As if he is a God. There’s a scene I despise, In which a reckless fight Between Zod and Superman, While they’re in flight, Smash through buildings In a busy city, Causing countless human Casualties. The real Supes Would not have allowed Such a fight to take place On inhabited ground, At least not on the way This fight transpired. His sense of responsibility, For which he is admired Would have given him an Alternate Solution to Implement. This film wasn’t that good. I’ll give it a four. It was popcorn filler, Nothing more.
