Man of Steel: Movie Review

Much like Star Trek, I grew up with Superman. I used to watch reruns of the old Adventures of Superman TV show starring George Reeves with my dad when I was a kid, and I watched various Superman cartoons–including one that featured Clark as a boy and of course Superfriends in the 70s. I really didn’t care for the campy Superman movies starring Christopher Reeves, but found my love for the character again in the 90s with Lois and Clark and then again with Smallville. I do have to admit I have never read the comic books.

Superman lay face down in the alley next to a dumpster, a circle of dried blood staining his red cape. Detective Harbison gazed down at the body and decided that regular bullets could take down the Man of Steel just as well as Kryptonite.

Since I didn’t make it to a movie this week to review, we are doing something different and reviewing a TV show. Smallville returns with new episodes this Friday so it seemed appropriate!

“Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No! It’s… Clark Kent?” Though the Man of Steel has not donned the blue spandex, red cape or his title, Clark Kent, played by Tom Welling, is well on his way to becoming Superman, the future symbol of hope for all fictional mankind.
