The Man of Steel Has a Heart Of Gold. My thoughts on the film screening, and Swag Giveaway

Tuesday night I attended the screening for "Man of Steel" at a theater in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, I'd like to tell you all about the pre event, the zillion anxious people waiting on line for hours to see this film-but that's another post...

Luckily I was able to meander my way to the door and ask the security guard where the media rep was. It took some time and eventually I found my seat.  Roll the film-please.

Man of Steel opens with Superman  (Henry Cavill)  as an infant with his parents, who are trying to save Cal (superman) from the war on his planet.  His father (Russell Crowe) sends him to earth  with all his hopes and dreams. His parents place him in a pod craft and send him out into the galaxy headed toward earth.   He is found by a couple (Kevin Costner, Diane Lane) who raise him as their own. Do they know he has super powers? Where did he come from? Why is he here?

The beginning of the film is a bit of science fiction, but gives the story of Superman's birth and why he has the power to be Man of Steel. It was a good refresher for me and for a new generation of Superman fans.

On earth, Louis Lane (Amy Adams) encounters Superman at one of his many nomad lifestyle jobs he has though out the film. He moves from town to town, job to job always using a different name. He is a bit of an outcast on earth, not knowing what to do with his super powers until he needs them to save mankind.

At the end of the film, wait I'm not going to give the ending away-but I will tell you that I enjoyed the film and that there were a zillion people waiting on line and that tells me how excited people are to see the film.

He is a modern day Superman with modern day super powers. Yep, he still can stop a locomotive and lift up tall buildings, and is gorgeous. But, that's not what the film is about. It's about you and I and heart. The heart to live together, peacefully, and humbly.
