Movie: Man of Steel

The major reason I watched this movie is because its story is written by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight fame). It is directed by Zack Snyder and it is about how Superman became Superman.
The movie begins where Clark (Henry Cavill) has realized that his super natural powers are way more than human capacity. So he is having a lay low kind of life, to save everyone from facing his wrath and seeing his true avatar. But one day when Lois (Amy adams) sees him and follows him secretly, she comes to know about his powers. Story also has some incidents from Clark’s childhood and how he was born on another planet ‘Krypton’ but sent on earth. Clark always wants to find out who he really is and who his real parents are. The story becomes more interesting when people from Krypton planet try to kill Clark and convert earth into planet like Krypton. Clark has to choose between his legacy and earth. What happens when Clark’s true identity is revealed to all people on earth, what Clark’s real father Jor-Ei (Russell Crowe) advice him, what happens to earth and all the people living on it is best seen in the movie itself.
Performances by Henry Cavill, Amy adams, Michael Shannon (General Zod) and Russell crowe are very good. Henry cavill’s physique is awesome and he fits perfectly in the role. All other characters are very good in their role.
So, story is very good, direction and screenplay are also very good. Special effects are the backbone and they take the movie to a new high. But at some point it feels that special effects are too much and story is very unrealistic. But this is a super hero movie, so what else would you expect. In fact, Christopher Nolan has tried his best to make this story more and more understandable.
I would recommend this movie to every action and sci-fi movie lover.
