4.0 out of 5 stars Visually Stunning, 4 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Man of Steel [Blu-ray] [2013] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Henry Cavill plays Superman with great depth and seriousness in this updated version with special effects that make the film stand out.

The opening scenes on Krypton were by far my favourite part. Russell Crowe plays Jor-El who attempts to warn the Council of his planet's impending doom before General Zod invades the chambers. The visions of Krypton are a director's delight. It would be wonderful if we could have a prequel set entirely on Krypton, featuring Jor-El, Lara and Zod.

Once Kal-E's rocket ship lands on earth, the film takes in occasional flashbacks on how young Clark grows up. Zod's spaceship forces Clark to don his cape and combat them

Whenever a new Superman movie is released, the actress playing Lois Lane is naturally assessed also. Amy Adams does a very good job as Lois. Instead of the old-fashioned 'Lois not realising that Clarl and Superman are the same person', it goes for the modern approach of her knowing that Clark has the powers and keeping the secret.

This film borrows a little from the original 'Superman' movie, plus 'Superman II', and also from the TV series 'Smallville' to produce a winning movie.

On the downside, it is a very noisy film, with the voices being somewhat quiet. It means that I have to change the volume frequently while watching the movie.

Also, Superman's battles with Zod and his collegues lasted far longer than needed. Epic damage was made, especially when the tussle moved to Metropolis. Realistically, a lot of people would have been killed when all the buildings came down. Not only that, I would have thought the Mayor of Metropolis would have given the cost of repair to Superman!

Still, a very entertaining movie; one of the top Superman films.
