Man of Steel - Review

The story starts on a different planet (I mean literally) called Krypton. The planet is collapsing,dying and the former hero of the planet sends his “first biologically born” kid to another safer planet (Earth).

I won’t spoil the story further. No spoilers henceforth; keeping the review quite short.

Cast: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, Russell Crowe

Director: Zack Snyder

Music composed by: Hans Zimmer

Screenplay: David S. Goyer

Producers: Christopher Nolan, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Emma Thomas.

Producers like Christopher Nolan and Roven do raise the expectations from this film and I feel that the movie stands true to it to a certain extent though I wouldn’t say 100%.

Zack Snyder manages to put his signature style of making gym toned men into an action packed combat. The movie feels as if you are watching two sets of the same show which are trying to get connected.

The first half is about the journey of Superman to earth, the difficulties he faced, the self-control enforced on him and so on and so forth. It time swings between his childhood in cuts and pieces. So don’t be confused if suddenly you find superman on screen turn into superbaby.

The next half is action packed. This is where the film gains pace and excitement. General Zod, the villain is shown equally powerful and gives a good fight to our Superman. So this movie isn’t one-sided although it’s about super heroes. I am happy about that.

The movie is visually a treat in some of the scenes. The story is built a bit differently but I liked it. Some of you may find it slow in the first half but it’s quite engaging. And a cherry on top for the gals especially is of course Henry Cavill. An upgrade is the suit of Superman; finally they have got rid of that ridiculous Red underwear.

So you can definitely watch this movie. Its dramatic and ruminative at times. It did not disappoint me.

Rating:  4/5

Happy watching!!
