Review: Man of Steel / Cert: 12 / Director: Zack Snyder / Screenplay: David Goyer / Starring: Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner / Release Date: 2nd December
Now available for your home viewing pleasure, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel tale looks to reenergise Warner Brothers’ seemingly dead Superman franchise. With no ties to any of the Superman films of yesteryear, Snyder’s movie acts as fresh introduction to the last son of Krypton.
Yes, you may have heard the basic story of Superman at various times in various formats over the years, but this latest effort looks to attack things from a different angle. Before we even get to the space adventure of the baby Kal-El heading for the fields of Smallville, we’re given a fantastically magical and mystical look at Krypton. With Jor-El (Russell Crowe) engaged in battle with General Zod (Michael Shannon), the patriarch of the family El is trying to give his son a future away from the imploding Krypton. Action-packed and stunningly-beautiful, and that’s before we even get to the meat of story.
