There are few better seasons for movies than summer. It’s a time for blockbusters to make big bucks and for comedies to make audiences laugh. This summer was no exception.
“Man of Steel”
(5 out of 10 stars)
One of the biggest letdowns of this summer, “Man of Steel” turned out to be possibly the worst film of the year.
Directed by Zack Snyder, director of “300” and “Watchmen,” and produced by Christopher Nolan, director of “The Dark Knight” franchise and “Inception,” the film seemed as if it couldn’t go wrong.
The movie was laden with promise — maybe this time they’d get it right. Unfortunately it did.
Due to its excessive and pointless destruction, terrible acting, badly written dialogue and shallow plot, the film not only failed to recapture the excitement created by the Superman franchise of the late ’70s and ’80s, but also turned out to be one of the worst super hero films of all time.
Although it seemed as if this portrayal of superman would manage to revive the story of America’s favorite superhero, the film failed like so many before it, and turned out to be nothing more than another pointless Hollywood blockbuster.
