Look up in the sky, its a bird! Its a plane! Its Sup–GHJK^&&^%*&. Excuse me? I'm Linus Schill and this is my review of the newest movie from DC Comics that hasn't sucked, Man of Steel.
When I heard there was going to be a new Superman movie, the first thing that popped into my head was: "Already?". Superman Returns was released less then 7 years ago, and it was not received well. There were a lot of plot holes, and a lot of problems. This movie has done an excellent job at completely erasing that bad movie from out memory. Much like the Ang Lee Hulk movie from 2003, they just hope people will forgive and forget.
There were so many things about this movie that were good, it is hard to know where to start. Henry Cavill was great as Sup–GHJK^&&^%*&. Amy Adams was a fantastic Lois Lane. Lawrence Fishburn was a great Perry White. Russell Crowe was such a good Jor-El. He was in the movie such a perfect amount, which you really haven't really gotten to see in the past. Krypton was so well played. It felt like such an alien world, not just another earth. I thought the way they worked in a "Kryptonite"-type thing was clever. Explaining that Kal was used to the the Earth's gravity and atmosphere, so when ever he got near the machine which was making Earth more like Krypton, he got weak and couldn't fly. It was exactly the same as Kryptonite in the past, but it worked well into this grounded movie. Michael Shannon was an amazing Zod. I really felt terrified while watching him perform. The flying sequences in this movie were the best I have ever seen. Most times when you watch someone fly, it just looks fake, and you can tell, the way they move is unnatural. However, in this movie the flying felt so immersive and beautiful, you just couldn't look away. The fight between Kal and Zod was the best fight scene I've seen in a movie, ever. It showed what it would look like if two super humans were striking each other head on, using what ever they need to to attack. Zod used a LexCorp tanker truck to kick at Sup–GHJK^&&^%*&.
