Like a rollercoaster, “Let Him Go” starts up slow, but Buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
This movie moves at a faster clip than the previous ones and doesn’t drag out as long as its predecessors. Each character is allowed to emulate the heroes we want to see and admire, despite the film’s potential to be downer given its sad theme.
Zack Snyder took great pains to create a different movie than what we have been to used to seeing after the 2006 Superman Returns snooze-fest. Taking a cue from the Dark Knight series and getting a little help from Christopher Nolan himself, Snyder created not necessarily a darker story, but a much more serious one.
