Great Action, Great Hero

The hero Superman has been one of our favorite comic-book icons for decades. As well, as style and acting, his story is one that is told and retold over and over again. We all know how his story began, but we never know were his stories will take us. The man in the red cape will forever be a classic yet fresh superhero to all viewers. The new film, The Man of Steel is an action-packed, well done movie, that is worth seeing, but had a few flaws.

When first entering the theater, I had high aspectations for this, with producers like Christopher Nolan, and Director, Zach Syner. Overall, the movie was pleasant to watch, but I felt like the story line was somewhat dis organized. It goes from a flashback with Clark to a random scene with Lois. Also, I felt like the action part of the movie was delayed to the end, making the first parts of the film a little tedious to watch. However, the later scenes of the movie are very intense and fulfilling packed with non-stop action from our man of steel, and futuristic technology.

Yet,the acting was very well done especially with Cavil, Adams, Crowe, and Shannon. Henry Cavill does an excellent job of displaying Superman as the humble, yet determined superhero. Amy Adams also does a very different, yet impressive impression of Lois Lane. Micheal Shannon and Russel Crowe were also excellent picks for their roles.

All of the scenes of the film were colorful, and well done. The beginning scene, showing life on Krypton was very creative and interesting as Krypton is usually not given much spotlight. Also the extraterrestrial costumes, spaceships, and characters were very impressive as well.

-Man of Steel is an original, impressive rendition of Superman. The beginning is a little slow, but the ending scenes will keep you on the edge of your seats.

Good If You Like Love Stories

The Vow was an increditble love story that is packed with powerful emotion throughout the entire film. Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams do an excellent job of potraying a loving couple who can't bear the thought of their memories of the past becoming lost. Its a heartful movie that is good for anyone who enjoys a good love story.

The story revolves around a young couple, both still in college, who enjoy a simple life in the city. Paige is a light-hearted girl who rebelled against her parent's wishes to marry rich and become a lawyer. Leo is down-to-earth kind of guy who owns a recording studio. Leo thinks his world is perfect until a horrible car accident occurs and leaves Paige with a serious head injury. This injury causes her to forget the last five years of her life; making Leo a complete stranger to her. Tension arrises as Leo tries to recreate the memories he once shared with her in hopes that she will once be his loving wife.

Not the Best from DC

Green Lantern is a classic superhero who many of us know. He isn't as popular as Batman or Superman, which may have been why this movie wasn't so spectacular. This movie isn't too bad for watching once or twice, but viewers should not have high expectations when watching this film.

The story line was acceptable, but could of used more plot twists and suspenseful moments.In other words, it was too straight forward. Also, the main villian of the movie wasn't too convincing. While the enemy of the story was dark and threatening, he didn't make much of an imprint on the story.

I also wouldn't have chosen Ryan Renyolds as the leader actor. While he may a good actor comedy wise, I didn't find him compelling enough to be a super hero. The love story was also unconvincing to me as well.

Its an okay movie if people want to see the Green Lantern as a live hero, but overall wasn't a great movie.

Another Enjoyable Disney Movie.

Upon first seeing trailers for this film, I thought that this film was going to be just another predictable cheesy disney movie. A mother and a daughter have their usual arguments about mixed opinions. Merida wants to be her own person; wild and free, and her mother wants her to be a respectable young lady. Despite the negative view I had at first, this movie was a great for children and their parents.

The story line was steady and interesting, but somewhat predictable. We of course know that the story will end on a happy note of the mother and daughter coming to terms with one another. Merida is a good inspiration for any young girl who can relate to the want for freedom and acceptance. Mothers can also relate to the Queen who often has disagreements with her daughter as she tries to develop a bond with her.

Overall, this movie was cute and thrilling. Its an enjoyable movie to watch every once in a while, but nothing mind-blowing.

Good But Not Great

Hunger Games is a good movie, but it could have been better. Hard-core book fans should be pleased with this film, as the story line is almost identical to the book. However, I felt that this accuracy to the film had both advantages and disadvantages.

On one hand, the plot and story was exciting to those who had read the book as fans got to relive the book in live action. However, I felt at times the film makers were only appealing to the people who had read the popular book series, and the film standing alone was not that good of a movie. That being said, I also think that the characters and the actors chosen for those roles could have been casted a little better. Many times, I felt that the characters were simply pulled straight from the pages of the book, and were not given authentic personalities.

Overall, this film was compelling and hosted a very interesting concept of a warped and sick-minded reality where children are forced to kill each other.I think that this film could have been much better if the film makers were not trying to replicate the book exactly, and made to story more interesting.
