So I went to see MAN OF STEEL last night. Aside from a few tender human moments courtesy of Kevin Costner and Diane Lane, it was rather overwhelming. The massive human carnage and destruction, the Christ parallels, Michael Shannon’s obnoxiously loud General Zod, and other things just bulldozed me. Henry Caville as Clark/Kal was very good though, having a rare mix of human frailty and alien superiority fighting for control within him that was subtle and well played. Too bad this movie wanted to be A Big Deal, it wound up shutting me down. Ah well.
