What if a Superman movie aspired to be something greater than a Superman movie?
Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have crafted something beautiful and wholly original from a mythos that is firmly established. The visionary Man of Steel is on one hand a measured, toned melodrama – a character study of a man born not of this world; a man born with unique gifts and strengths that will one day change the world forever.
On the other hand it’s one hell of a summer blockbuster smash up!
But watching it – well all it did was remind me of how small and mediocre my own existence is.
I wanna fly dammit!
Actually I’d settle for a two bedroom apartment and a bigger tv.
