Man of Steel: An IMAX 3D Experience Movie Reviews
User reviews on Man of Steel: An IMAX 3D Experience
To 3D or Not to 3D? That is the question! And dare I say that the best answer to this ever-present query for fans of big and daring movie watching is always YES! Even when the stories falter, the acting is remedial, and the plots fail to make sense, the CGI and 3D special effects never fail to amaze. This is the primary lesson of the age in which every movie that is destined to become a blockbuster is released in 3D. Can you do better than seeing Kai-El floating through space from Krypton to Earth on an IMAX screen in 3D? You'll want to reach out and grab him for your own. Henry Cavill also brings a much needed gravitas and masculinity to the role, something that Brandon Routh failed to provide in even the smallest measure. He was just a pretty boy. Cavill is pure muscle with enough brain to make us respect him. And as such he really saves the day. Kudos to Chris Nolan yet again!
I like to think of myself as a high0minded connoisseur of movies - even when it comes to popcorn and mainstream movies like this one - but hats off to Christopher Nolan again for creating a super moody and super awesome superhero. Does it get any more super than this? If you like The Dark Knight Rises on IMAX 3D, you will LOVE Man of Steel on IMAX 3D. There's a lot more action and the straits are much more dire than anything we may have seen Bruce Wayne combat in Gotham City. Also, the supporting cast of Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner get special mention for being especially good in their parts. It's odd to think that Kai-El/Clark Kent has so many parents. The 'homeland' part of the story with his Kansas parents gets a little hokey (awww shucks, y'all) but there's little reason to grouse at that. Overall, I'd give this a super thumbs up!
My boys begged and begged and begged me s'more to take them to see the latest action comic book superhero movie on the IMAX screen in 3D so I had no choice but to oblige. It seems like there's a new macho superhero movie rolled out every Friday these days. It sure puts a pinch in the old wallet at $20 a pop just for admission but if you grew up reading the comic books or dreaming about Christopher Reeve as Superman, you might want to venture and see this movie in IMAX. The best reason to tread back into the storyline is that it is actually pretty sentimental. I love the whole idea of a gifted young man learning his gifts can be used for better and for something for social good. Also, the effects look absolutely stellar on the IMAX screen. I would recommend this to anyone with a childlike remembrance of what it used to be like to be awed by the movies.
