Tonight I will going to see a early screening of Man of Steel! I just discovered that my local theater is having an early screening of Man of Steel later tonight, providing it is not sold out. Sure it is only a four hours earlier than the midnight showing, but it is still kind of cool. Hopefully at least the first half of my review will be posted tomorrow Now for the Review Roundup of Man of Steel, does Superman live up to super-hype? From the reviews, it seems that it does not. My original skepticism has been confirmed because the film is receiving reviews ranging from great to terrible. It is apparent that Man of Steel does not even match the reviews of Iron Man 3, maybe Thor: The Dark World will be the big comic book film of the year.
Update: Just got the tickets, I will be going to see the film tonight! Also expect a "First Impressions" post later tonight around 10:00pm American Eastern time
Rotten Tomatoes: 60%: If its rating continues to drop at this rate Man of Steel may end up "Rotten". Here is what Rotten Tomatoes said: "Superman's return to the big screen is mostly successful, as Man of Steel provides enough exhilarating action and spectacle to overcome its occasional detours into generic blockbuster territory."
Chris Stuckmann: B+: Chris was excited for film but it slightly disappointed him. Watch his review below.
Beyond the Trailers: B- or 6/10: Grace Randolph is big fan of the comics and the character of Superman, but believes non-Nolanites and non-comic book fans might not enjoy the movie. Watch her spoiler-free review below.
Jeremy Jahns: Buy it even on Blu-Ray: Basically "Buy it even on Blu-Ray" is equal to somewhere between 3.5 and 4.0 stars. He was super pumped for the movie and was kind of disappointed.
Schmoes Know: 4/5 and 3.25/5: As you can hear in the review below, Kristian Harloff is a fan of the character and gave it a 4/5 and found the movie enjoyable, yet somewhat disappointing. Mark did not care much for the movie giving it a 3.25/5. Watch their review below.
