Man of Steel

Man of Steel ★★★

A lot of flying and punching combined with Jesus imagery and chins. It's not nearly as Snyder-y as it needed to be in order to be great. There are moments, including the opening scene and one where Zod goes inside Supe's head. Some well thought out visuals there but it's mostly kinda boring looking. Also, there's not much that happens for a 2.5 hour movie. I'm tired of origin stories, though this one does a good job of chopping it up and giving it to us piecemeal. All the acting is fine to good. Michael Shannon could have had more to do as the one before whom we should kneel. And, like everybody else has said, way too much destruction in the last act (though it looks pretty good).
