    I'm your run of the mill Superman fan, grew up with the movies, cartoons and comics. Not exactly a die hard fan but I can say I really enjoyed Superman Returns. This last movie though to me was a huge let down. The only part I liked was the first 15 minutes when their on Krypton. To me it just didn't flow right. It was too dark and all about violence.What was up with all the destruction and killing Zod? As a fan of the original movies and Superman Returns I feel this one missed the mark. What do you guys think? :dunno:

    I did not grow up with the older Superman films and Superman Returns was pretty confusing to me. I saw Man of Steel last night and I LOVED it! It does an amazing job of showing where he comes from and how he did have an internal battle to find his place in the world and how he had to learn to control himself.

    My roommate went with me as well and he does remember the older films and he really liked the movie, he thought that they did kind of merge all 3 of the older films into this one.

    If it were another super hero with a cape it would have been an ok movie. They got the Super right but they didn't get the Man right. Its a new Superman for new fans, not really for the old school fans. To me the story was too busy. They did indeed cram way too much into one movie. Killing Zod and destroying the city isn't really what Superman is about. If the new Batman series and the Justice League movies are gonna be like this I wont waste my money at the theater.

    Damn, you actually liked Superman Returns?!?!? To each their own, I suppose :lol:

    I saw it last Friday. First off, I'm a Batman fan since childhood, Superman was always second choice over Bats. That said, I've read Superman comics off & on for years, liked Superman I,II & III. IV sucks huge donkey balls :lol:

    As far Man of Steel goes, I really enjoyed it. I liked Michael Shannon as Zod. He absolutely KILLED that role. They also made it far more clear as to why Zod is and was the way he was. That was never done in the older Superman film. I also liked the fact they only touched on Clark's backstory in mostly flashbacks. I mean c'mon at this point we all pretty much know the story for the most part, there's no reason to rehash yet one more time. One more thing I was more then pleased with was Henry Cavill as Kal/Clark. Best Superman since Christopher Reeve! Awesome performance.

    Now as far as the movie and storyline are concerned I was more then pleased with the story, the effects. The pacing was a little wonky at a couple of points, but nothing major. I have to say I left the theater pleased with this movie. I can't wait till MoS II is released. Hopefully we get to see Lex in the next one. One more thing I and many other DC fans are hoping for is this movie leading us to a Justice League movie in a few years.

    One last thing. The killing of Zod. As shocked as I was to see it, they handled it well IMO. You could sense the turmoil Superman was hit with as soon as he killed him.

    Oh, can't forget, Faora was the biggest ass kicker in the ENTIRE movie! That chick was bad fugging ass!

    I liked it and like he^^ said it was good how they showed the turmoil from superman killing Zod and the more structured background on why he is who he is.

    One thing that I didn't like was that with the earth machines located on (supposedly) opposite sides of the globe it was still somehow daylight in both locations (metropolis + south africa). Somehow the sun is either setting or rising in Africa while in metropolis it's complete daylight out.
    Couple of other oddities but that was the biggest for me.
