Calling it like it is

Categories: General | June 22nd, 2013 | by Assi | no comments

Let me start by saying that I liked “Man of Steel” as a movie, I had a good enough script and the Direcdor did some decent work, but It seems that Mr. Snyder mistook this movie for his earlier works and tried to cram too much CGI to the movie to compansate on other failings in the movie

Now if you have not seen the movie yet, stop reading NOW!! and there might be things that might be considered spoilers.



I think it is time we stop all the pretense and admit the common truth: When you say “Superman” and “Hollywood” the first thing that comes to mind is the only man that has been Superman both on and off stage, Christopher Reeve!
The role that made him a household name, and the role that he hated and was most disappointed that people only knew about his acting career, was also his quite off screen persona, especially after his tragic accident.

Now Henry Cavil is a fine actor and I do not want to diminish his effort in stepping to big shoes, but “Superman”, sadly that he is not.
He portary’s a fine “clark Kent” and in some scenes he gives a good effort to try and step up to the plate, but sadly he is not doing a very good job in this one.
The late Mr Reeve Owned the role in both aspects of it and non of the 3 actors that came after him to don the suit ever measured up, Some of you might try to point out that there are 4 (if you include Smallvile) but Tom Welling did not play Sups, he played CK and as that he did a fine job, Considering that the only interesting and good character on the show was the young Lex.
In my eyes the movie had so much potental that was wasted on the fight scenes, and in those moments the stry was suspended and the acting failed to make the CGI compeling, instead it makes it annouying and tiresome.

So All in all the movie is another “pop corn” movie that will do nice in the Box office , but in my opinion it is not “Superman”.
