THE Man of Steel returns to Earth six years after mysteriously disappearing only to find that Metropolis has moved on without him. Oh, and Lex Luther has another plan to defeat the superhero.

Flawed characters are certainly director Bryan Singer's thing (X-men anyone?) but while it works with the mutants, we don't want the most famed of hero's with deeply human flaws.

He should be super, to be everything that we cannot be - that is why while the original film was superb, this is a rather dull younger brother. 2/5
