I don’t know why I always have the impression that it was directed by Christopher Nolan. Maybe because they always flash his name big big every time Man of Steel trailer is shown. Apparently it’s actually directed by Zack Snyder. Man of Steel is like a Batman Begins for superman. It’s the story of the birth and origin of Superman.
To be honest, Man of Steel didn’t awe me as much as I expected it to be. With that, I still think it’s way better than Superman Returns. To start with, the costume is already a whole lot better—cooler and nicer. The fights, the destruction are super drastic. To a certain extend, I like it but when it comes a point where all you see is sh*t getting destroyed, blasted and exploded that I start to just feel that they kinda overdid it. It’s funny how he fights to save people and the world yet ended up destroying so many things and getting so many people killed. Anyway, Cavill plays a pretty good Superman though.
If you’re just looking for a good super hero movie with epic over the top action sequence, Man of Steel is the right stuff. Definitely recommended.
