Brit Henry Cavill slips into the cape and red Speedos in Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan’s version of Superman.
Man of Steel – Henry Cavill. Gosh yes. Well done. I mean. Goodness me. Cor.
However … please Hollywood, buy the poor crew a steadicam or at the very least a decent tripod. And no matter how spectacular the SFX, it does not replace a proper script! Standing about telling each other the plot, indeed … watch the Christopher Reeve Superman for how to do it.
I think there may have been one … maybe two …. intentionally humorous moments, but the final big fight reminded me far too much of Peter Griffin versus the giant chicken. PH
