The usual….Planet Krypton is in trouble and about to be destroyed, and Jor-El (Russell Crowe) must ship his son to Earth to preserve the race. Grown up, reporter Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) is faced with members of his own race trying to destroy earth. So as his alter ego, Superman, he fights back with the biggest challenge of his life.

Now you want to talk about a movie that did NOT need to be made? This movie adds nothing to the story, and is far weaker than the other movies. I am really not sure what is the motive behind the decision to make this inferior version of the story. This movie is just plain boring. I felt really disappointed as there was no meat to this story at all. There is no real personality to either Clark Kent or Superman, and it seems to get bogged down on trivial matters relating to the politics of Krypton and very little about the star of the film himself. All in all, this reboot of Superman is a bust and is very disappointing. Some have suggested it’s the worst film of 2013. If it’s not, it’s pretty high up there on the list. I see the list of potential Raspberry Award nominees is making it’s round, and though After Earth has a lot of traction and will probably sweep the Razzies, this is actually a much worse film than After Earth, and Superman here is a much worse actor than Will Smith’s kid if you can believe that. This is a waste of time and money, and one of the few I say to avoid at all costs!
