With New York’s red carpet premier last Monday night, the reviews flooded the internet by Tuesday morning and they were generally very positive. No 5 star or 10/10 reviews though. The highest that I have read so far rates the film at 9/10. Empire and Total Film give the film 4/5 and the general consensus is the films is action packed, well paced and spectacular but is lacking a certain amount of emotional depth and fun.
But 4/5 is a great review in my book and was pretty much what I was expecting. I will be seeing this film next Wednesday with the review due next Friday so stay tuned for my views if your interested, that is. This is also the final day of what has been a week dominated by Superman, beginning with a Top 10 Superhero movie list, in which Superman: The Movie (1978) and Superman Returns (2006) both featured and was swiftly followed by the first Superman review of the collection, the Max Fleischer Cartoons of the 1940’s.
George Reeves’ Superman And The Mole-Men (1951) laid the ground for the four Christopher Reeve features, leaving two more reviews today to cap the week off.
By the time the collection is finished, there will have been a couple of re-posts, with yesterday’s Superman IV: The Quest For Peace being one of them but this is my definitive collection of reviews and articles of The Man Of Steel, and by next Friday with Man Of Steel (2013), it will be completed.
For all those going out this weekend to watch what may be the most anticipated movie of the year, then I hope that you enjoy yourselves.
Also, a very happy birthday to by Step-daughter, Georgia, who is 12 today!
