I rushed to the theatre to see the midnight viewing of the new movie, Man of Steel, so I could be one of the first dogs to give it a review. I know how many dogs are depending on my review before they settle into a theatre chair with some milkbones to enjoy a movie. The movie stars Henry Cavill as Superman, who of course, is the "man of steel". This movie shows more about Kryton and why his Kryptonian parents sent their baby to Earth it does not waste a lot of time re-hashing the origin story which, at this point in time, I think most people are familiar with. Amy Adams played the reporter, Lois Lane. I think the actors did a very good job in this movie, and it is on par with the original Superman movie series starring Christopher Reeve. The director and/or writer was wise enough to include several dogs in the movie, and one of them played in a very pivotal scene which, if you ask my opinion, should get the dog an Oscar for best supporting actor.
Clark Kent is Superman (make sure you don't go around telling people this because he needs to have a secret alter identity), and in this movie, Clark is struggling to grow up and understand his heritage. The big problem for him in this movie (no, Lex Luthor is not in this movie) is General Zod. General Zod wants to re-create Krypton on Earth. It is up to Superman to be the hero and save the Earth. What will he do, and can he win against another Kryptonian as strong as himself. You'll have to watch the movie to find out!
I give this movie 12 paws up (I'm drafting Angel Zoom Smokey and Phantom Fast Snowman to show how good the movie is), 3 tail wags, kisses from all 3 dogs, and the new movie award that is more important than an Oscar called the "Demon Flash Bandit". Yes, it is a little gold statue of a Siberian Husky. I would give it a 10 out of 10 on the human movie scale. Go and see this movie. You'll be glad you did. However, I was a bit disappointed with the credits because they did not list the elementary school teachers of any of the people in the credits..and this dog wanted to know who they were!
