Man of Steel

Man of Steel(2013)

Superman 2013 is a pretty good reboot, mixing freshness with familiarity well. The last third of the movie gets rather tedious though with neverending destruction of Smallville and New York and although the casualty count must be enormous, needless to say no one featured gets hurt. And as two indestructible forces clash, the finale is nevertheless a anticlimactic letdown. Personally, I would have enjoyed a two-hour prequel, focusing on the destruction of Krypton, much more. The first part of the movie on Krypton was amazing.
