Man of Steel Mini-Review by David Sooby

Title: Man of Steel
Director:Zack Snyder
Produced by: Warner Bros.
Reviewed by: David Sooby

Man of Steel.  Wow. How to remove the heart and soul from the Superman origin story, even with a blockbuster budget, and top-notch acting from several in the supporting cast, including Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner. No wonder it got "mixed reviews." I think the writer and/or director made the same mistake that Kenneth Branaugh made in Mary Shelly's Frankenstein (1994): He neglected to give us any reason to care about the characters. Lois Lane was pretty much a non-entity, too.
