Yesterday I took my son to see The Man of Steel. We went to the first showing and the theatre was about half full. Considering it was a Friday morning at 11:45, I guess that's pretty good. As I've mentioned before, my son is 15 and he gave the movie 10 out of 10. I, on the other hand, am not 15 and I gave it about 5 out of 10. I have never read a comic book. I don't really understand them. I don't understand what the big deal is. Besides having superhuman powers, in general I think the life of a superhero would leave a lot to be desired.
Throughout the movie, I kept asking my son questions as I did not understand a lot of things. The pieces-parts just didn't mesh together very well and I left the theatre with more questions than answers. I guess movies such as this are just meant to entertain and that's something I can live with.
Below is the link to my full review on Examiner.com. There was one line in the movie that stated Superman is hot and yes, yes he is :)
Have a great Saturday.
