    It was Shittacular. Save your money.

    Superman is a pretty boy.
    first two thirds boring
    last third too much of the same action.
    Reminded me of Transformers.


    The last lines of the movie:

    "Why are you smiling, Captain?"
    "Because he's so hot!"

    Really, Really disappointment. What was Chris Nolan thinking?

    General Zod survives being thrown through multiple buildings, taking them down in the process, getting blown up, and shot but Superman is able to break his neck.

    chris nolan wrote it but didn't direct it, not that it would make much of a difference.

    it was OK, not worth seeing twice. problem with the film was too busy, too much action without any character development.
    avengers also had a shit load of action but at least robert downy jr and the hulk guy were entertaining. superman is too wooden. best scenes were with Kevin Costner and the kid.

    "It's Zack's movie so it'd be a bit rude of me to turn up and say I've got a few ideas now," laughs the director when talk turned to his involvement with Man of Steel. "My big point of responsibility was helping shepard David's script. When I'm finished with this I'll be there for whatever Zack wants from me, but it's very much his movie."

    i know he wasn't the main writer, but the point of my post was to tell the OP that it isn't nolan's movie.

    just to clarify, yep he helped write the script, i was right , not talking shit, i am great :dancin:

    I had read it was bad before I watched it, so I actually enjoyed it. If you expect nothing, I think you'll like it more. It is 100x better than Superman Returns.

    So is this more or less a retelling of Superman 2? The whole General Zod thing sounds familiar, but he doesn't have a hawt Ursa sidekick????? Bad idea, IMHO (In My Horny Opinion)

    He does have the hot ass kicking female partner just like in the other movie. It is a "reboot" so they do cover several elements of the other movies.

    It's not really like Superman 2 in very many ways. It's about as much like it as the last Star Trek movie was like Wrath of Khan.

    This is true.

    Then again, having your testicles laminated while chewing on glass is better than Superman Returns.
