Today we decided we’d go see Man of Steel, I really can’t say that I was looking forward to the experience since the previous version’s level of suckyness was so high I still remember it. Aside from that Superman is just not that interesting to me.
Anyway since this will be a spoiler free review, expect vague opinions that may or may not be validated when you do watch the movie yourself.
First off I really liked the actors they chose, especially the ones that made up General Zod’s faction. They were reminiscent of the previous version of this movie that Christopher Reeve acted in so it was kinda like seeing them again. This Louis wasn’t as annoyingly useless as the one we’re accustomed to and this is also the first time (that I know of at any rate) they choose actor that didn’t bear a strong resemblance to Christopher.
The fight choreography was good, the visual effects were good but the story didn’t flow well so that took away from the overall experience. I was also rather impressed with the costume design.
All that being said this movie is still worth a look especially if you weren’t satisfied by the previous version.
