Superman: Man of Tomorrow Movie Review (2020)It's a Superman movie review for Superman: Man of Tomorrow. Following the events in Man of Steel, Superman is back and this time he has been given the gift of super strength by a mysterious and powerful alien named Rao.
After Clark Kent is attacked by an assassin named Metallo, a young Clark Kent is assigned as an intern on the Daily Planet. Clark becomes a fixture on the news due to his ability to protect Metropolis from criminals and disasters. But a new crime wave robs Clark Kent of his super powers, forcing him to put them to good use when Superman arrives on the scene.
The cast includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Michael Shannon as the villainous Metallo, Diane Lane as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Amy Adams as Lois Lane's mother and Anthony Mackie as Jonathan Kent, Clark's best friend and fellow Superman. In a rare casting move, the movie includes cameo appearances by both Lex Luthor and the villainous General Zod.
As you might expect, the script is fantastic. Writer Christopher Nolan provides a fresh and unique take on Superman, weaving the story into a modern day thriller. Director Zack Snyder follows suit with an interesting plot that keeps the movie going strong.
Zack Snyder brings some interesting visual effects to the table. The visuals are much like what you would see in a big-budget science fiction film. You'll see plenty of action sequences, but what I really enjoyed were the special effects sequences where Superman makes use of his incredible powers and Clark Kent saves the day by saving the city from villains and disaster.
One of the best aspects of the movie is the music, as well as the score by Junkie XL. The score is catchy and really sets the mood for the rest of the film. The score is also played during many of the action sequences, which helps to keep things suspenseful and exciting throughout the entire film.
One thing that did cause a little bit of a problem was the fact that the majority of the action scenes were either shot in black and white or sepia, which caused the action to look choppy and unclear at times.
Overall, Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a fun and exciting movie with a great cast, excellent script and a lot of action sequences. If you are looking for a good action-packed superhero movie, you should definitely check out this one. If you aren't, then it is an alright.
