Will's Review of Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)
Man of Steel wasn't a bad movie, it just wasn't good. On one hand it was bland, but on the other it had some very well made moments. The poor aspects only really begin half way through the movie, as the first half (especially the origin story) were relatively well done. The writing overall could have been much better, though. Certain scenes had some horribly bad one-liners and lines that were just too to-the-point that it made the film not hard to watch, but just non-enjoyable. Its a shame, too. Cavill makes a great Superman (even if he seems to become speak more elegantly than before when he dons the suit, which is odd). The action scenes and their CGI weren't up to par, but the movie's lack of substantial writing was the significant factor in Man of Steel's demise.
