Movie Review: Man of Steel - PG13

The writing was quality, and creative.  We've all heard or seen the Superman story many times, but they found a way to tell it in a new and fresh manner.  

The casting was spot on - Henry Cavill seemed very natural and at ease in such a prominent role.  I am not a huge Russell Crow, but he was excellent as Superman's birth father.    Laurence Fishburne was pretty commanding as Perry White.  Kevin Costner was good in his roll, but I didn't care for the way his character insisted Clark hide his true self...it seemed to have an unintended affect on Clark's confidence and self-esteem.

  Although it is an action-oriented movie, I liked the character interaction.  They reflected the written  relationship pretty realistically and naturally.  

My only problem  was that in the last 20 minutes/half hour, the destruction was waaaay over-done.   That part got pretty intense, and came across as pretty unbelievable.  

Overall, a very good movie that I enjoyed a lot.
