This was the only blockbuster of 2013 that's was truly great and I could get into. As the film stands I think its a great reboot and a heck of a lot better than superman returns. the story is good and it's a very well realised and engaging origin of superman and is told with that gritty realism of Christopher Nolan's dark knight film's. Also I have to say the pace is good and fast for a two hour film its fly's by.
The action and special effects are very good especially the opening on krypton and the epic last sort of half in the film where some truly awesome fights and destruction happens. finally as for the acting it's decent I thought henry cavil could have been a little bit more enthusiastic but Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon where great. oh and the music is great and very uplifting.

one of the best superhero film's and my top film of 2013 for sure.

Man Of Steel.
Blu ray.
Region B/2.
Running time 142 minutes.
Ratio: 16.9/2.40:1.

Positive.
1)Actor Henry Cavill delivers a superb triumphant performance as Superman/Clark Kent that makes him the standout star of this movie.
2)Outstanding Action scenes that truly deliver eye popping epic entertainment.
3)Russell Crowe is perfect casting as Jor-el & the opening 20 minutes which he is mainly featured are truly magnificent.
4)Michael Shannon delivers a great performance as General Zod dictator & warlord is a great advisory for Superman.
5)Superb retelling of the Superman Mythology by writer's Christopher Nolan & David Goyer.

Negative.
Amy Adam's sees totally miscast as Lois Lane bringing no spark to the character.

Extras.
• Strong Characters
• All Out Action
• Krypton Decoded
• New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth
• Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

Trivia.
1)Henry Cavill was nearly Superman in 2006's Superman Returns until director Bryan Singer prefered Brandon Routh & cast him instead of Cavill, Seven year's later Bryan Singers loss was Zack Snyders gain as Man of Steel is a far superior Superman movie than Superman Returns & Cavill a far better actor & Superman than Brandon Routh was.
2)David Goyer wrote the 3 Blade movie's & co-wrote the Dark Knight trilogy.
3)Dennis Quaid & Kurt Russell were in the running to play Jonathan Kent.
4)Keep a eye out for the Luthorcorp & Wayne enterprises logos on a truck & satellite in the final fight between Superman & General Zod.
5)Many of the flight sequences later added a CGI cape.
6)Henry Cavill got down to the final two in the casting of James Bond in 2006 but lost out to actor Daniel Craig.

THE FILM -WELL AND TRULY LAUNCHES 'SUPERMAN' INTO THE
TWENTY FIRST CENTURY. (Another re-start)
Many will remember the comic series of yesteryear with it's weekly tales of
the indestructible super-hero inspiring the imagination of it's young readers.
Many versions both via our TV sets and the big screen have been played down
the years including the much loved 'Christopher Reeve. 4-movie series, his
career of course was cut short after a horse-riding accident. (sadly he's
since passed on)
In '2006' 'SUPERMAN RETURNS' was released starring 'Brandon Routh' in the role.
sadly the film failed in the Box-Office, so wasn't continued, seven years on,
we start over...with this 'stunning' special-effect bonanza of viewing pleasure.
On the doomed planet of 'Krypton' 'Russell Crowe' plays 'Jor-El' father of 'Kal-El'
on Earth 'Kevin Costner' plays 'Johnathan Kent' 'Kai-El (Clark's) adopted father.
'Clark' learns from an early age he has powers that defy the normality of the
children around him here on planet 'Earth'
Now grown up 'Clark' has to blend into the world of seemingly normal expectations,
he has to learn how to control the power he has using it to help mankind.
Reporter 'Lois Lane' has worked out that 'Clark' and the Worlds new hero are one of
the same.
The Earth however will soon need 'Superman' as the exiled 'General Zod' from 'Krypton'
years past threatens earth challenging them to give-up the being mankind in general
know little of....yet.
'Kai-El' will have to respond, 'Genera Zod's' intention is to build 'Krypton' on 'Earth'
The battle to save Earth from those who wish to obliterate mankind....begins.
The film is a C.G.

It's a remake of the old Christopher Reeve Classic from the 70's............................In fact you could believe that the Guy who plays "The man of Steel" COULD Mr reeve as I guess he has been chosen because of it?
This SEEMS to made in REVERSE. the clssic that i watched in the 70s was about Klark Kent growing up as a human and leading a normal life after coming from another planet and growing up and hiding his powers and becoming a hero to his school mates in a drowing school bus and they know about his power not so in THIS film and as an adult becomes a Reporter for the Daily Planet but in THIS film he decides that is what he will do at the END of the film!! Its still good versus bad ab=nd he is STILL Fighting his arch-enemies as he was in the classic. Its a basic "Good overcoming evil" film re-done in a great way with MORE great graphics and special effects so THAT is a bonus. Great film loved it. ( Shame that we couldnt have a " Man of Stell" in 2014 and rid us of all the evil crap we have in our world now.....hey Ho I never believed in Santa either........! REcommend x
