    Man of Steel

    ★★★

    So convincing as the parable of hyperindividualism that some of its politics can probably sway whichever way, but the empathy on display (especially in Costners scenes) is crystal clear. What's even clearer is that the final third's geological wrestling match through glass, concrete and stone is ridiculously well done. It takes stamina to avoid getting exhausted by the onslaught but each expert cut and transcendent image is its own reward. In other words, dug it a lot.
