Man of Steel (New to DVD)
Warner Brothers; 2013; 143 minutes; PG-13, for violence, wholesale destruction and language; Directed by Zack Snyder; Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix; Screenwriter(s): David S. Goyer
Let’s get it out of the way—Man of Steel is the best Superman movie yet; a serious but rousing reimagining of the iconic superhero’s origin and rise to prominence that remains faithful to the Superman traditions while injecting the story with an adult sensibility not found in any of the previous big-screen efforts.
