Man of Steel
June saw the long anticipated return of the first and most loved superhero, Superman to the big screen in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel.” Produced by Christopher Nolan, with a script from David Goyer, we got a more realistic, but sci-fi take on the origins of the character. The second CBM of the year is also the MOST controversial CBM of the year. It split fans like the Red Sea. Not since Nolan’s own “The Dark Knight Rises” have I seen fans so divided. Like it or love it though, no one can deny it delivered on epic scale action the likes we’ve never seen before in a Superman movie. I personally loved this film, and thought it was a great modernization of the character, and his world. What I liked most is that they embraced the sci-fi aspect by concentrating on his alien heritage. Now we can spend the rest of the film focusing on his humanity, which is Superman’s strongest draw, while still keep his alien side a major part of the plot.
