Dan's Discs: MAN OF STEEL

MAN OF STEEL is a reboot of the Superman Franchise from director, Zack Snyder.
If you have ever seen one of Snyder's films, like 300 or SUCKER PUNCH, then you know:
This man loves to direct big, spectacular action sequences.
Snyder delivers with the sights and fights, but as a whole, the film is uneven and poorly paced.

Superman is one of the most beloved, fictional characters in history.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn't have some knowledge of his abilities, origin story or his famous chest-insignia. MAN OF STEEL suffers from the same affliction as most reboots: it is forced to retell stories that we've seen before and often, that we've seen done better. Snyder's version is no match for Richard Donner's original and classic, SUPERMAN. However, if you are in the mood for an eye-popping evening, look no further. MAN OF STEEL is an epic and ambitious, effects film that will get you excited for the possibilities of Snyder's next project: BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN.

MAN OF STEEL is now available in a variety of formats and you can read my full review here.
