ELLE reviews Man Of Steel

Our cover girl Amy Adams stars

Superhero films not your bag? They will be once you’ve seen Man Of Steel.

It is, simply put, a game-changer.

Flawlessly cast, with Henry Cavill (who is so now on our list) in the role of Superman and ELLE cover star Amy Adams his ballsy Lois Lane, it’s everything you ever thought Superman should be and more.

For starters, it’s big. Like, really big. From Cavill’s CGI-ed pecs (thank you, 3D), to the scale of the destruction wreaked on New York by its enemies (led by a menacing Michael Shannon as Krypton insurgent General Zod), everything about the film is, well, super-sized.

It’s also a lot darker than you might expect, and its focus on Clark Kent as an outsider – literally, an alien – struggling to find his place as an outsider in the only world he’s ever known, beautifully realised.
