There’s more to the next ‘Superman’ than great looks

Things are pretty quiet on Henryland this days, so I think you’d like to read this article. Enjoy:

DOES Henry Cavill have what it takes to wear the Man of Steel’s cape in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, “Man of Steel”? If you didn’t see Tarsem Singh’s “Immortals” last year, “The Cold Light of Day” (showing this week), the actioner Cavill topbills with Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, has the answer—and it’s a positive one.

We’re talking about the hunky actor’s performance, not the movie, which follows the misadventures of Will (Cavill), a Wall Street trader who finds himself running all over Madrid after his family is kidnapped during a sailing trip in Spain.

In the incoherent course of the darkly photographed movie, the distraught Will learns that his father (Willis) not only has a second family in the Spanish capital, but is also revealed to be a rogue CIA operative who has possession of a contentious briefcase that contains important documents—though the movie never divulges what they are.

The action-thriller meanders all the way into its perfunctory finale—but, at least Cavill demonstrates that there’s more to him than his good looks. His acting choices are consistently spot-on, from beginning to end.

This bodes well for the upcoming big-screen “rebirth” of the DC universe’s Mightiest Superhero, which comes in the heels of the disappointing “Green Lantern.” Of course, Batman’s “Dark Knight” trilogy is in a class all its own, because the brilliant Christopher Nolan is behind it.

      I have just seen The Cold Light of Day yesterday with my sister, and I would have to agree with this article. The movie it’s self has nothing much to boast about but Henry’s acting was indeed consistent from start to finish. I think this is a great way for the audience to get acquianted with him, being the newest Superman and all.

      I really wish Henry all the success! =)
