After the bitter taste that was left in many a mouth by Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns', many a fan of the big blue Boy Scout have waited with bated breath for a movie that would live up to the often romanticised 1978 Dick Donner film. Well I'm happy (and relieved) to say that if you're looking for a Superman movie that harkens back to Christopher Reeve's glory days, you are gonna be sadly disappointed.
Man Of Steel's aim was simple…
A hugely ambitious movie that I can honestly say is possibly the most difficult film I've ever had to rate or critique. Hoffman has some signs of greatness here, but the screenplay is enough to have the greatest minds in the world on the fence. I have the upmost respect, however, for the director - Charlie Kaufman's vision, and his refreshingly oblique take on modern filmmaking.
