And so has my opinion of many of the actors in this piece of junk. The whole scenario is preposterous, like someone wanted to mix a Die Hard movie with Escape From New York. The special effects are surprisingly terrible; I think the Sharknado movies do a better job blending their effects into live action shots (not really, but close). Gerard Butler is a better comedic actor than he is an action star, and his American accent comes and goes through out the movie, but hey, at least Morgan Freeman got to deliver an abridged version of his Deep Impact speech at the end.
Overlong, dry and just kinda boring, especially for movie depicting recent history. The acting is decent though I don't care a bit about anyone on screen. I mean I already know how it turns out. It's not even an interesting documentary.
The climactic assault is often just a dark screen with vague hints of motion to be anything but frustrating - realistic lighting, maybe; bad storytelling, definitely.
The best thing about the movie is the somber soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Meh. Not a big Superman fan, but this movie wasn't very good. Another Goyer script another bad spectacle of story-telling. I did like Michael Shannen as Zod, and Henry Cavill was good as Clark Kent. Not much of a story, but what is there is told poorly. Mostly an excuse to knocked down buildings.
I think the film's sentiment is best summed up by this:
1978: All those things I can do. All those powers. And I couldn't even save him.
2013: All those things I can do. All those powers. And I *wouldn't* even save him.
