Man of Steel
You will believe that a man can fly.
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
Despite his iconic status Superman has often struggled to adapt to life on the silver screen. Ignoring the comic book delights of the first two films, DC’s most enduring creation has failed to soar at the box office and even the Midas touch of Christopher Nolan’s guiding hand seems incapable of stopping the character’s turbulent cinematic journey. Following Bryan Singer’s lifeless and dull love letter to Donner’s original film, Warner Bros. have attempted to bring the Godly spectacle back to the franchise, and they have, at the expense of practically everything else.
Although this is very much an origin story it foregoes many of the elements people have come to associate with the character. Sure, it features the familiar moral…
An explosion of imagination and visual ingenuity, Man of Steel manages to feel like the future of cinema and an instant classic all at once. It follows the bare bones of the source material, then injects a strong dose of modernity and eliminates the duality between Clark Kent the journalist and Superman. The early reviews for this film are polarized for all the wrong reasons. Something that's been slowly building over the last few years has finally come to a head with reviews of this film. When it comes to big, flashy summer blockbusters, critics have taken extremely negative stances on popular films for the sake of being "above" all the noise. This isn't a film that needs to be…
"but what if i have to tinkle?"
you will believe a man can sigh. hopelessly torn between regurgitating a myth & telling a story. inert, dull & terribly timid. the genome of a Nolan film & none of the grace. flashback structure fatally enervates the narrative. hardly any actual *scenes,* even fewer actual characters.
Cavill is great / wasted. Adams is given a petulant and banal Lois Lane. Shannon acquits himself, and yet enjoys not a single memorable moment (his henchwoman steals the show with her Metal Gear moves).
neat design elements, i'll give it that. the thought of a sequel has me locked in the fetal position. no more, zack snyder. no more zack snyder.
Man of Steel is devastating. No, not because it's a disappointing film - though always when one attempts a new take of one of popular culture’s beloved icons, especially when prior visions have been so successful and accepted by the public in such an easy tone, it's not hard for one to instantaneously pull out that card. Rather it's a heartbreaking, draining and powerful origin story of the most true kind; one not afraid to strip out fanfare to show a humane struggle of one man to achieve potential greatness.
Zack Snyder's take on Superman is not a superman movie; it's a man of steel movie - our lead is not a hero, rather one striving for it, but in…
And the award for most disappointing movie of the decade...
as well as my most boring time in a theater...goes to...

MAN OF STEEL!
This has been easily the most anticipated movie of the year. A serious take on Superman; something we needed after how lackluster the last few films were. *cough* Superman Returns *cough* The trailers made this look as epic as possible so it's hard not to get a little excited by this. Did over a year's worth of hype payoff?
Nope...but at least it was better than Superman Returns...not like that's a difficult feat of course.
It'll take a long read to mention what's wrong with this film so let's start with the positives.…
Me gustó bastante a decir verdad.
looks like i've found the worst film of the 2013
This movie is more stronger then steel. This movie was far better then superman returns, I mean the actor who played superman was really good and the score was epic.
Es una película absurda. Pero lo verdaderamente imperdonable es que sea tan sumamente aburrida.
After waiting for all the hate around this film to subside, I was more than satisfied with film. That may not hold a ring of much conviction but when the movie ended, I was relieved that I was able to walk away from it without regretting the past two hours. Granted, the movie didn't do much to flesh out its characters, even Superman himself, and a lot of the conflict scenes had frustrating elements to them. Why wasn't Jor-El able to knock out the general dude (nope, not going to look up his actual name) after shooting two minions with the same gun? Why didn't Father Kent try to scooch under a car in at least some type of effort…
This movie isn’t lacking for interesting story ideas. In fact, it probably has too many. So many of the conflicts are resolved in the blink of an eye without a satisfying arc. When Clark, as a child, suddenly gets information overload from all his powers kicking in at once, that’s the kind of struggle that could take up an entire act. It’s basically fixed in one scene. The same goes for the effects on both humans and Kryptonians when they breathe each other’s air. Interesting idea, but everybody deals with it pretty easily. It’s those kinds of things that could have been developed in this very movie but were just pushed aside. And there’s one plot element that especially bugs…
Nach dem auch ich mitbekommen habe, das da noch mehr Filme von DC erscheinen werden, habe ich mich mal an den Mann aus Stahl gewagt.
Im großen und ganzen war Film schon mal nicht schlecht. Die Art, wie die Geschichte erzählt wird gefällt mir gut, nur die Materialschlacht war ein wenig übertrieben. Ich bin kein Superman-Fan, aber selbst für mich sind die Colleteralschäden, für die er selbst verantwortlich ist, sehr unpassend (bis auf das erste Mal, das war noch OK).
Die Konsequenzen für Zod scheinen umstritten zu sein, für mich war es der Situation angemessen und ich denke, das dieser Faden noch Auswirkungen haben wird.
Ich gebe erstmal 3,5 Sterne für leicht überdurchschnittlich. Das kann sich im laufe der Zeit noch ändern, das Filmerlebnis ist ja noch frisch!!!
I don't think its nearly as bad as some people clearly do, but its a huge missed opportunity. Cut it out with the damn gloomy superhero movies will you. The marvel movies get it right, come on.
