This isn’t so much of a movie review as it is a look at metaphysical Hollywood. Where are these writers getting such high level intel? Credit here goes to screenwriters Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. Wherever, or whatever, I was speechless after seeing this movie. In a good way.
They had me at the extraordinary cinematography which unpeeled itself in the first few minutes. Major respect to the director, Zack Snyder and cinematographer, Larry Zong.
In every Marvel series I’ve seen with superheroes, there is a specific way these superbeings enter and exit the screen. It is usually with a swoosh, a dash, a poof or a speed of light flight. In this movie, Superman ascends (yes ascends and descends) in a slow and angelic godly way, with his cape a royally flowing around him. Superman does not raise his hands over his head and dive into the wind. He beatifically rises with the coherence of a savior hovering over the 3D matrix of mankind. The effect is breath-taking!
Next came the story line of God vs Man. This was getting my attention. If you replace the word Kryptonian with Draconian, there is a respectable reference to the galactic wars and galactic history. This references the Dracos (dragons/reptilians), the Pleiadians and some ancient history of our planet. (For more about this, check out the series by Andrew Bartzis on youtube.) Without being a spoiler, one of the adversaries in the movie is actually a hybrid race, a kryptonian/draconian being mixed with human DNA. This giant monster “falls” much like the Nephilim as referenced to by Dan Winter’s account of galactic history.
Another theme is the twin flame ignition. Superman is activated and charged by the love of Lois and admits to “woman as his world.” Divine feminine clearly in charge here!
Also there is a female Senator who attempts to bring a higher law into the mix, a slightly veiled Pallas Athena, holding power and court.
I give this movie 5 stars for being able to entertain, transport, report and speak to higher aspects of life beyond our solar system in an epic way!
