Also, I think this movie should be good watching for you women, as this person is very handsome and you frequently get to see him in tights, rugged and naked + amazing physique....
Let me know if that turns out to be the case, I will have to see it
Man of Steel 3.5/5
(0:00- 1:40) 4/5
I it, I would give it a 9/10. The good-Cavill,Shannon,Crowe and Costner we're all amazing. I think it's the best superman movie to date!
I didn't really feel the chemistry between Superman and Lois (and I still think Amy looks to old for Henry) and I also really really missed John Williams score.
I am believer too now... I think Cavilli makes an excellent Superman and he fully embodies the role- face, voice, looks, body, demeanor, mannerisms, everything. Superman is the average joe that is also the world's sheepdog. Nothing more, and nothing less. .
Conversations with Russell Crowe played a much more extensive role than I anticipated and I liked seeing his presence and natural charisma repeatedly. Costner, a good actor, brought much warmth and convincingly showed to us that he was his father.
Shannon's role was okay and servicable imho, but forgettable. But then again- if one has read the comics- all of superman's enemies save for Lex luthor have been simple and just like Zod. They did justice to the comic.
As for Amy Adams- I think she was miscast and was too much like a normal woman. She was too old (clearly late 30s) , too heavy, and not attractive enough and not enough like the way Lois Lane is supposed to be (sexy, clever, resourceful, high energy, tall, beautiful, alpha woman, etc.) I didn't see chemistry between her and Superman either.
Antje traue played a minor role but she was very, very attractive and welcome whenever she appeared...
A few more comments:
+ There are many memorable superman moments and scenes.
+ This film gives a more personal edge to superman.
+ The first 1:40 minutes (up until after the confrontation) are well done.
+There was one fifteen minute (or so) confrontation that was very well done and was easily one of the best out of all the superhero sequences (ever filmed).
+They filmed a lot of sequences well and did not take any big, ruinous risks.
-The Last 0:45 minutes is where the movie starts to fall apart.
-About 1 hour of the film is prolonged, often unnecessary action.
- The movie plays out like a series of coincidences, macguffins, and deus ex machina plot devices but so does the comic...still they could have toned this down a notch. The silliness of the plot is always there but thankfully it doesn't ruin the enjoyment.
+It should be watched
