BEST COMIC BOOK FILM EVER ! REAL GRIT!,
This review is from: Man of Steel [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I loved this film, i am not really a comic book film fan, i grew up watching the christopher reeve films and the hulk series and that's as far as it goes. I have watched thor,ironman,captain america,avengers etc but i always thought there could have been more,so it was with a bit of apprehension i took my son to watch the man of steel. From the very start i was blown away.The only reason i was looking forward to watching this was because michael shannon was starring in it and because zack snyder was directing.This film is great in every way.Other films say we have rebooted it and completely changed it but this one really has.It is a lot darker ,grittier and more violent, a superb cast,great soundtrack and brilliant script.Aswell as the brutal fight scenes i loved the way clarke had flash backs of how he learned to deal with his powers and wrestled with his decisions to embrace his destiny.A brilliant film that even non comic book fans will enjoy, be warned though like i said before it is quite violent in places.Personally though i thought that was a good thing.
