For me, Man Of Steel seemed to work best when Superman wasn’t in costume. That’s when the film focused on characterization instead of tiresome fighting and destruction and lots of howling from the man of steel. (Echoes of Kirk screaming “Kahn!!!”) The romance of Lois and Clark was non-existant and when they kissed it seemed completely phony since there was so little time or chemistry they shared. And to leave the bespectacled version of Clark Kent until the very end left no room for Henry Cavill to exercise his acting chops, reducing Superman toaone-note comic book character.Isaw this in IMax 3D, and that wasaplus, but the movie could have done so much more without the endless fighting scenes between Superman and Zod. Although very visual, the writing was awful!
