What is the best Superman movie
The ultimate superhero movie: Man of Steel!
For some unknown reason, Superman movies have always been a bit disappointing at the box office. Yet, the man from Krypton has millions of fans across the world, of all ages. When “Man of Steel” was first announced, some sceptics believed it to tumble in ticket sales, continuing 2006 “Superman Returns” huge disappointment. Fortunately if someone could rekindle Clark Kent’s flame, that person would certainly be Zack Snyder. Appointing a fairly unknown actor to play Kal-El, Henry Cavill (Charles Brandon from The Tudors), the creator of 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch, released his creativity and found the perfect mix, needed to create a masterpiece. The movie “Man of Steel” has an impressing cast with Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent and Russell Crowe as Jor-El to name a few.
Well, in order to shake off the “curse” of Superman past box office flops, Zack Snyder decided to go for a title without the big “S” in it. The story is something different: darker, more intense, violent (due to the brilliant performance of Michael Shannon) and with a touch of apocalyptic flagrance that leaves a good taste to persist in the viewer’s mind. The wave of collapsing skyscrapers, alien ships breaking the blue sky’s silence and sincere portrayal of human survival instincts introduces the viewer in a world with a surprising close tie to reality. This is where Kal-El should grow in the legendary symbol of Superman. In the wake of imminent doom, you need nerves of steel in order to succeed: fight off an alien invasion, beat General Zod and get the girl! Sounds pretty bold no? Well, only Superman can accomplish such feats on his own. The time has come for a head on battle with evil, in a grey and sombre tone, just the way now the audience is used to, due to the Batman Series.
Man of Steel Blu-ray release can be yours. Today, you have the opportunity to watch Zack Snyder’s revival of Superman and enjoy breath-taking action with the son of Krypton. As so many critics pointed out, this story gets you hooked from start to end. From the mild transformation of the boy that discovers he has incredible powers and that he comes from a planet far, far away to the Superman, we all know and love, is quite exciting. Every step of the way, Clark, Lois and Zod keep up a thrilling pulse, worth taking in.
Watch “Man of Steel” and root for Superman and Earth!
