So, I Caught The Man of Steel Yesterday...

and it was frickin' AWESOME!! I wasn't quite sure what to expect after hearing the mixed reviews; the most prominent complaint being that it was short on story, but big on action.

The critics are not completely wrong in this assertion, but; whatever the film lacks on storytelling (which isn't much, BTW), it more than compensates with startlingly rich visuals, mind-blowing special effects, riveting action scenes, and solid performances by a stellar cast! And yes, Henry Cavil IS The Man of Steel!

*** TEENY TINY SPOILER ALERT***
Also, there are a couple of Easter eggs thrown in for good measure; a couple of trucks bearing a familiar "LexCorp logo, and if you look really hard, you will even catch the "Wayne Enterprises" logo on an unlucky satellite. Finally, be sure to laugh at the "giant penis rockets" that are used to shuttle Zod & Co. into the Phantom Zone!

  3. Caught this yesterday as well....loved it. It did seem a bit short on the story side....and I couldn't figure out if that was because I kept trying to compare it to the Donner films or if it really was skimpy. I think that Lois Lane was awkward in some scenes.

    Having said that, I completely agree that Henry Cavil IS the Man of Steel. I completely bought into him as Superman. Zod was great too. I took my parents for a day out yesterday to see this. I'll be taking the wife again this coming Saturday. I'm hoping that I catch more stuff that I missed the first time on the second viewing.
