Henry Cavill just became famous after turning into the powerful Superman of DC Comics. If you love him, these 8 movies with Henry starring would be perfect for you in case of getting bored of watching Superman too many times.
Tristian and Isolde
Tristan and Iseult’s romance is one of the most influential stories in Western culture. But in cinema, Tristan and Isolde did not appear until 2006, produced by brothers Tony and Ridley Scott.
This is a very tragic love story between the knight Tristian and the princess Isolde. The main stars of the film are James Franco and Sophia Myles, and Henry Cavill is still only participating as supporting actors during this period.
Another supporting role, but the appearance of Henry Cavill in the film is much more impressive. In fact, almost all of the characters in Stardust have their own mark.
This is a very successful adaptation based on the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman about the magical, ironic but also a romantic journey of a young man in search of the shooting star falling to the ground to prove his love for the girl in the village.
This is a less-popular Netflix movie about a bright-faced US Army private soldier and his platoon, who are stationed in Iraq ordered to build a well in a rural village in the early years of the war.
Based on the series of gods from Greek Mythology, Henry Cavill plays Theseus, a mortal chosen by Zeus to combat impending earthly calamities with a conspiracy to free the Titans for the great war between the gods which had happened in the past.
Last year, Netflix’s blockbuster last year was considered a successful adaptation of the original series of novels from Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The series tells the story of Geralt of Rivia, a famous Witcher who specializes in quests to defeat dangerous monsters in exchange for bounties. Geralt’s fate was destined for him to meet the sorceress Yennefer and his bond with Princess Ciri.
Henry Cavill is praised by fans of both the novel and the series because of his outstanding performance as Geralt from the appearance to his character’s personality.
Man Of Steel
The story of Man of Steel contains many events that needed the appearance of Superman, like the crisis of America when confronted with the appearance of an alien.
Zack Snyder has done extremely well the task of building an S-symbol on Superman’s chest with unique, impressive audiovisual combat. This is also the film that helps Henry Cavill really step up to A in the list of Hollywood actors.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E
Henry plays Napoleon Solo, a famous thief forced by the CIA to do a secret mission with a KGB agent to prevent a plot involving a Nazi nuclear bomb.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E has interesting and engaging storytelling with carefully invested outfits and music that is appropriate to the events’ paradox. The work makes many audiences feel reminiscent of the first generations of James Bond, instead of leaning towards today’s fast action.
Mission Impossible: Fallout
This is a rare old-style action movie that still shows its level despite living in the middle of the era of CGI. This is also a rare film Henry Cavill plays an extremely dangerous villain with killer fingers that makes Ethan many times struggling. The segment in Henry’s bathroom with Tom Cruise also reached the top of the best melee scenes of 2018.
