[Movie Review]: Man Of Steel
Last Saturday, we caught Man Of Steel at Golden Village [Bishan] and although I wouldn't consider myself a Superman Fanboy, I really enjoyed the movie throughout. On the other hand, Jacqueline felt that Man Of Steel barely met her expectations because the movie wasn't as action-packed as she hopes it to be. True enough, although there might be a lack of mind-blowing action scenes, I liked the movie because the story build-up was progressive and it depicts the other side of Superman that we rarely know about.

For those of you who probably don't know the origins of Superman, Man Of Steel actually tells it all and from the movie, you will come to know that Superman isn't really human but an alien from the planet of Krypton. Also, the "S" symbol on Superman's outfit takes on a different meaning and personally, I really like how the story of Superman unfolds and truthfully, the movie soundtracks complements the movie pretty well.

There will be a sequel to Man Of Steel and it might be releasing next year. In case you're wondering if there are any teaser trailers or anything of that sort after the movie credits, no, there isn't. So, if you haven't catch Man Of Steel and you're wondering whether it is a movie worth catching, I highly recommend it.
