This re-imagined ‘Man of Steel’ story is one that has fascinated us more than any previous Superman stories. We loved the action and graphics of the movie, therefore, an awesome 3D experience at the theatres. The movie is action packed, yet it has a few add bursts of laughter. This is a version that has shifted from dark to darker, we liked it but all may not like it. We think this was foreseen since we already know and love the works of ‘The Dark Knight’ co-produced by Christopher Nolan and 300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder. When these two were to come together for Superman it had to be what it has now become.

The movie is big, sluggish yet great and meaty (in all ways ;))! It, also, once in a while seems confused. Henry Cavill, being British, does a good job with the american accent, but his body language and dialogue delivery it not as impressive. All through the movie the characters have built-up well but there seems to be something missing. Another thing that is amiss in the movie is the superhero crime fighting, but that isn’t the story, we are forced to remind ourselves. But yea, we have to admit like the Captain admits, Man of Steel is kinda hot!!!

When we watched the movie the theatre it was a house-full; filled with boys who never give up on their superhero fixation even if they were 80 years old. The audience was enjoying themselves as they clapped through various scenes and also screamed out of excitement during action sequences. They also thought that the intermission was a spoiler ‘coz they dint want a break in the fun!

The most striking bit of the movie is that, all of them speak in English but the symbol on the suit of  ‘S’uperman is Krypton language which no one has shown speaking or even referring to. Also the innocence of Superman, in this movie, is a blur. The movie also gives a gaming feel in some scenes.

Here are a few dialogues that may stay with you while you step out of the movie hall:

A good death is it’s own reward

I can do things that other people can’t

Whoever that man is, good character or bad, he’s gonna change the world

It’s not an S… here it is called an ‘S’
