A Man of Steel review from an early rough cut appeared online months ago. The anonymous reviewer said not to worry, this is the Superman film we’ve long been waiting for. As anticipation builds for the film’s release just a week away, more and more folks are seeing it and it’s clear that they agree: Man of Steel is nothing short of epic.
Particularly impressed with the film is Jimmy Fallon, who offered his own mini Man of Steel review while sitting with one of the film’s stars, Christopher Meloni. On Thursday’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the host gushed:
“Christopher Meloni, I’ve got to tell you, I saw Man Of Steel, blown away. This guy, Zack Snyder, this movie’s insane. Visually it’s insane. I don’t know how you did this. I don’t know how you pulled it off.”
“I don’t know how they did it either, except to say, I’ve got to tell you, you’ve got to see this movie,” Meloni responded.
“This is how you’ll watch this movie [eyes and mouth wide open]. You won’t believe it. It’s a new generation of how to make an action film.”
Fallon added: “I was like I don’t know if they were actually there, because things were blowing up and breaking. I didn’t know what was real and what’s computer generated.”
The host continued:
“It’s insane, and also it’s Superman. So you go like, ‘How are you going to reinvent this thing?’ We all know Superman. And they did it. I’ve got to say it’s fantastic. I’m so happy for you. Have you heard that the tickets already are outselling…it doesn’t come out for two weeks right…and the tickets are already outselling what’s coming out this week.”
Say what you will about Jimmy Fallon, his Man of Steel review has us convinced. I know where my butt will be on June 14.
