Man of Steel
Clark Kent is a man searching for who he is, he knows he isn't from earth, but doesn't know where he is from. Once he finally discovers that he is from the planet Krypton and why he was sent to Earth, an invasion of Earth by General Zod forces him to finally reveal himself to the world. The question on the worlds mind: is this person a threat to our way of life? The question on Clark's mind: can I trust these humans?
The directing of the film was great, and was a real departure from what Zack Snyder has done in the past. While the tone is certainly one he is familiar with as his other comic book film "Watchmen" did have a darker tone. He certainly didn't use his trademark slow motion in this film, but to a degree I think some scenes could have used that to show more impact during fights. Overall this is in my eyes Snyder's best work since Watchmen.
Russell Crowe was fantastic as Jor-El, getting the characters scientist side right, and being wise but also had more of an action role this time around. Crowe was able to give the character a more fleshed out personality and emotions that separated him from the rest of the Kryptonians. I absolutely loved him in this role.
|Kevin Costner and Diane Lane were great as Johnathan and Martha Kent.|
|Amy Adams was great as Lois Lane. The damsel in distress is gone and replaced with|
more attitude and she gets right into the action.
