Man of Steel: Your reaction?

Man of Steel: Your reaction?

Post#1 » Tue Jun 18, 2013 2:56 am

Just wanted to hear what everyone thought of the new Superman movie? Superman is my favorite superhero, and I was really looking forward to the Christopher Nolan/Zach Snyder partnership.

In my opinion, it suffered from the "transformers" effect. It just dragged on as one big battle scene for way too long, like Transformers 3. It ended up being a generic alien-invasion movie that just so happened to feature Superman.

The great thing about Superman is how he is a figure for people to rally behind, a figure of hope. Someone who fights for truth, justice, and the American way. Heck, they even redefined what the 'S' stands for in the movie to call it Hope. But they never actually ended up exploring it. I liked the juxtaposition of Clark's early life and him becoming superman, but they ended up abandoning all that once Zod showed up.

I hate to say it, but I was disappointed. :(

I haven't seen any if the superman movies, but the whole superman growing up thing reminds me of Smallville. I think they did a good job with that show.

A buddy of mine also told me he was disappointed in exactly the same way.

I was similarly disappointed with Die Hard 5. Hollywood seems to be making a single movie over and over again, and just putting different costumes/faces into it.

In the beginning I thought I was watching the Sci-Fi Channel but by the end of the movie I think that they redeemed themselves.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who feels that way. A lot of guys actually like action movies with solid storylines and writing.

Nice setup there in the "War Room". Looks like they have a bit of a signal problem though.
