This review is from: Man of Steel (DVD)
I was curious and exited about this re make of superman, but im afraid its a let down in so many ways.
nearly the first 20 minutes are dominated by russel crowe, then suddenly clarks all grown, and then on through the film you have these annoying flashbacks. henry cavil could teach a thunderbird how to be wooden, and the big baddy general zod sounds like hes on something and needs winding up.
the effects are brilliant and there is lots of action, but to be honest I found myself fast forwarding a lot and rooting for the bad guy to kill lois so she would shut up!
too many traditional plot pieces have been tampered with and not enough time on the acting.
only watch this if you don't read the comics or don't like the Christopher reed.
