Nobody wanted to love this film more than me, but all it took was one viewing to crush any hope of tingly greatness. Amy Adams is too old for the role, she'll be in her 40s by the time the sequels come around and is nine years older than Cavill. Lots of action without any heart or soul... a wasted opportunity that didn't feel like a Superman movie at all.
Action has no point if there is no emotional impact behind it and that's what this film was lacking. They learned nothing from Superman Returns, making the same mistakes, but reversed. Kate Bosworth was too young, Amy Adams is too old. Superman Returns has heart but lacks action, and Man of Steel has action but lacks heart. Some middle ground, please.
