“..under Nolan's supervision he (Snyder) largely lays off the ADD editing and does a highly respectable, and sometimes inspired job of retooling the basic Superman mythology in "Man of Steel"..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..there's big, and then there's this Superman (but don't call him that)..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : B-

“..the movie can't decide if it wants to be a particularly thoughtful brand of superhero saga or a deafeningly generic summer action movie. So it ends up being both, to the detriment of it and us..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
