Man of Steel, this year’s most anticipated movie of the year has failed to live up to the expectations of the audience. A film that has brands attached to it such as Warner Bros, NOLAN and ZIMMER still turned out to be a failure. Director Zack Snyder failed to make a proper Superman flick. The crowd that thinks that Superman flicks are always full of loopholes and keeps facts unanswered about the superhero expected this to be a proper one that might portray the superhero in a better manner leaving behind no loopholes. Alas! Snyder couldn’t make that thought come true. After the Batman trilogy by NOLAN, people are addicted to that taste created by him. While in this film, we can get a flash of that particular magical taste in the form of the storyline that has been penned by Mr. Nolan.

A high budget film that has the best use of visual effects cannot always win the hearts away. U might be glued to ur seats because of some important aspects. First, the storyline that beautifully has been changed with no flaws. Instead of those stereotype Superman flicks, this story has the power in it to give u a different taste of the superhero’s life. Second, the background score by Hans Zimmer (Batman trilogy and Inception) was too good to hear especially when you are sitting in a multiples to watch it. It has the strength in it to give a good description of the situations on-screen. Third, technical aspects like sound design is just wonderful to watch out for while camera work is just good since the styles implemented are too monotonous while the frames weren’t that bad. Editing can be called good as it is one of those aspects that made the film a bit presentable through its parallel cutting and match cuts to mention a few. Fourth, extensive use of visual affects is the most appealing thing in the film and is best experienced in 3D. However, acting by the lead actors was worth appreciating. Henry Cavile and Amy Adams did a job well justifying their characters on-screen while the rest of the crew was good too except Michael Shannon (Commander Zod) who could have done more better job. But yes, Russel Crowe is always ‘fatafati’ on screen no matter whatever role he has to play.

Now your next question is why did the film didn’t work well. Point one to be focused on Direction. A superhero film like this could have been better made on a serious note instead of making it on a casual line. It has an intense story, a good plot and could have been well executed but still it seemed to be a casual superhero flick that didn’t suit the lines of the nature of a person like Kal-El or Clark Kent. It is not Iron Man that will live on punchlines happening to be comical. Sad to mention but the efforts went in vain and expectations too.
