FW MOVIE PICK: MAN OF STEEL

130522-SuperBreath.jpgAt last the kind of “Superman” movie I’ve always wanted to see on the big screen and also the first installment in the DC Movie Universe! Clark Kent, one of the last of an extinguished race disguised as an unremarkable human, is forced to reveal his identity when Earth is invaded by an army of survivors who threaten to bring the planet to the brink of destruction. It stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. While I did enjoy the pulse-pounding action scenes and spectacular visual effects I’ve always wanted to see; its lack of character development and bleak tone even for a “Superman” flick can be jarring at times. General Zod is a worthy enough DCEU villain with menace though. A fair recommendation for DC Fans!
