2 days to go before ‘Man Of Steel’, the latest Superman incarnation goes on general release in NYC.
Of all the superheroes, surely Superman is the one most knitted into the consciousness of New Yorkers, his every saying and move is so ‘known’, so expected, so needed that every incarnation of him is measured against childhood dreams of invincibility and power in saving oneself, in saving Gotham.
The reviewers say this version fills the bill, one reviewer even saying ‘this is the Superman I have been waiting all my life to see’
Adjectives like exhilarating, ‘true blue’, familiar, mythic and exciting are being used.
Mind you some reviewers are also using words like tedious, overblown and ‘not fulfilling expectations’.
But all the audience reviews so far give it a massive thumbs up. Can’t not see it, it’s too much part of NYC to ignore. LIKE superman.
