Rocket, you the real MVP!
@Belly Lover, *tips hat*
I don't understand how the "awkward" feeling applies to this at all.
@Sa1ntsFlow, rocket was a hitman before the start of the movie
I just rewatched Man of Steel yesterday with the hopes of enjoying it more on a second viewing. All that did was clarify why I didn't like the film. After the first act the film just flies off the rails and takes itself way too seriously for being a film about Superman.
@Batman, I'm sorry because I'm not trying to undermine your argument but are you sure you're not just jumping on the MoS hate bandwagon? Or have a nostalgia erection for the Reeve films. I only ask because so many people make up the most pathetic excuses to hate it just to seem cool and fit in. May I ask you to go in to further detail as to why you didn't like it?
@skillingspree, Being a huge DC Comic fan, Superman if one of my all time favorite characters, and this movie completely forgot what Superman's all about. I could spend hours detailing what I didn't like, but let me just summarize the basics. Firstly, for a film about a man who can fly, it takes itself way too seriously. It doesn't have to be a Marvel movie, but if you read a Superman comic or even watch the animated series, you can see what I mean. Secondly, they turn Superman into a generic action hero. Then of course there's the generic plot and terribly visuals including shaky cam and those ugly grey filters. Like I said, I can spend hours giving you each point in detail with many more, but arguing over the internet is ways a waste of time so all I'll do is urge you to either read a Superman comic or watch any of the DC animated shows with Superman in it.
@Batman, Visuals were pretty cool to me. And I didn't find the plot generic at all.
@skillingspree, Same with Call of Duty. So many hate bandwagoners.
@Geodude, Judging by your love for Call of Duty, I feel that trying to discuss this any further would be counterproductive.
@Batman, I don't love Call of Duty, but random hate on it is completely stupid and ignorant. And judging by how you think Call of Duty players are idiots, shows how stubborn you are.
@Batman, I'm not a huge fan as you claim to be but I am a huge fan of all superhero movies/comics, ie most of marvel and dc, but as I've read superman and MoS they are not the same comics. Just like batman and dark knight are different takes on batman. MoS is a darker take on superman. Superman does end up killing Zod in the comics but he does exile himself from earth as a punishment. You should have learned by now that none of the superhero movies have been an exact replica of the comics. All the Hollywood people change the movie to fit movie "standards." So take a chill pill and if you don't like movies stick to comics. No one cares.
@Appallo69, I totally agree with the fact the movies and comics are different. But there is a right and wrong way to adapt the comics. The Dark Knight is different and isn't afraid to show it, but while it is more realistic in comparison the comics, it stays true to the characters and motivations of the heroes and villains in the comics. Plus the fact that it's considered one of the greatest films of all time helps. Man of Steel on the other hand seems to be on the fence about whether it wants to be a Superman film or a Michael Bay film.
@Batman, the thing is, if it was wanton destruction I'd agree with you. But, he was one inexperienced kryptonian fighting an army of trained similarly powered badasses who wanted nothing less than to exterminate all humans. With a premise life that, is it a big surprise that there were so many explosions?
@Batman, also, sorry but the grey filters are completely your opinion. Some, myself included, actually quite liked them. While I agree that the film was a lot darker than the comics (which I do read a lot btw), I would say that it was pretty similar to current comics. Maybe not silver age, where everything was dandelions and rainbows, but in today's darker world I thought it fit in well
@skillingspree, The excuse that he's unexperienced is completely due to poor writing. I'm unexperienced when it comes to fighting alien invaders, but if I were put in that situation, even I'd know to try my best to draw the fighting away from the civilians. Superman's done it plenty of times in the comics.
@skillingspree, his name didn't give it away? "Batman"
@Batman, if I remember correctly, he did try. The world engine was what caused a lot of the destruction and that was virtually indestructible, never mind the number of kryptonians helping it destroy cities and such. And him being inexperienced is the point. He doesn't realise to try his best to save people, and it's only at the end of the movie that he realises that saving people is important (when he kills Zod)
@skillingspree, The World Engine was already gone when he fought Zod at the end. Any common person would know that in order to lessen the casualties, it would be necessary to lead Zod outside of the city. This would've been extremely easy considering how Zod war pretty much chasing Superman wherever he went.
@Batman, Well you are Batman. You and Superman have a great rivalry. And as much as I prefer Batman over Superman, I'll admit Batman has terrible taste in movies.
Why so much hate on superman
That's cause Marvel is better then DC.
Well, I mean a huge ship as big as 10 city blocks did crash into Nova... And the ships still hit the ground, they were just in pieces.
@Hugo Strange, but the city was evacukated
@natzu, then how did those civilians get there so soon when they confronted Ronin?
@Hugo Strange, cause it was outside the main city
I really didn't like this movie. I honestly preferred man of steel
@Chknsyphilis, I liked both
@Kaiser Wilhelm II, Its not that I didn't like gotg, I thought it was okay. I just feel the hype is a bit much.
@Chknsyphilis, You monster! D:
I liked Man of Steel though. Best Superman movie so far, but doesn't compare to Guardians of the Galaxy in the slightest.

This was a great movie everyone should see it so they can make another
Imagine if SUPERMAN didn't have his own movie and made an unexpected appearance in Wonder Woman's movie? Like she's losing a battle due do bad odds, then some civilian shouts, "what's that in the sky??" You see the cloud stream behind him as he flies down and whoops ass with all his powers being unleashed in one scene. Wonder Woman says in a weak voice, "who are you?" And Superman responds in a growl, "I'm goddamn Superman!" Then rockets back into space....yea
If you save a planet, then you save a lot of civilians. Can't we just call them both heroes at this point?
