"Man of Steel"

Chandra and I went to see Man of Steel last Wednesday afternoon on my birthday. I've been eagerly anticipating this movie since I first heard they were making it two years ago. At the time 2013 seemed so far away, but here we are… June 2013!

Since I knew I would be seeing Man of Steel, I prepared to see it by recently watching Superman, the 1978 movie that starred Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman. The movie was made 35 years ago, so it's quite dated. I always find watching old movies humorous because it's fun to see a glimpse of what the world was like at that particular time, especially in regards to fashion trends and technology.

Man of Steel and Superman have a completely different feel from each other, even though they are about the same characters. Superman was comical and it was funny watching the smooth, confident Superman hide in plain sight as the awkward, bumbling Clark Kent.
Man of Steel was much more serious, and the storyline of Clark Kent working at the Daily Planet didn't even come into play until the last two minutes of the movie. I won't say too much so that I don't spoil anything for anyone, but the end of the movie left the door wide open for a sequel, so I look forward to seeing that whenever it comes out. Heather's rating: 8.5/10 stars
I thought that Henry Cavill was a perfect Superman. He is very visually pleasing and just looks the part of Superman.
