Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of
Steel comes back to Earth. While an old enemy plots
to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the
heartbreaking realisation that the woman he loves, Lois Lane,
has moved on with her life. In a attempt to protect the world
he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on
an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths
of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space...
going to assume that anyone who is willing to part with £10
for a script book with no colour photography has already seen
the film. Therefore they know what to expect and won't feel
cheated when they realise that the story is incredibly shallow.
this review will not be scrutinising the lack of any real
plot or interesting story - you'll have already seen the film
it's the presentation that is being put under the microscope.
bless them, have a long history of providing quality books,
but they have seriously dropped the ball on this one. You
can't get much drier than reproducing a script, and so you'd
have thought something to spice it up would have been on the
cards. How about some colour pages, how about some stills
from the film? Nah! How about page after page of script? You
got it! Followed by a selection of storyboards (incidentally
the illustrations here actually look a lot better than the
recently launched Superman
Returns graphic novel) covering various scenes
from the movie.
we end up with is a very dry book that I personally can't
fathom why anyone would want to buy. Okay
there are a few interviews at the start with Bryan Singer,
Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, which are interesting,
but on the whole the general presentation is thoughtlessly
£10 fans will be expecting more. As I said before, a
picture every now and then would have helped. How about a
centre section with several promo stills? If
I had to comment on the content of the script then it would
get a much, much, lower final score. But, I'm going to be
kind and say this is just average.
