I only saw the first $200,000,000 worth of Man of Steel, as I walked out at the two hour mark.
Despite his iconic status Superman has often struggled to adapt to life on the silver screen. Ignoring the comic book delights of the first two films, DC’s most enduring creation has failed to soar at the box office and even the Midas touch of Christopher Nolan’s guiding hand seems incapable of stopping the character’s turbulent cinematic journey. Following Bryan Singer’s lifeless and dull love letter to Donner’s original film, Warner Bros. have attempted to bring the Godly spectacle back to the franchise, and they have, at the expense of practically everything else.
Although this is very much an origin story it foregoes many of the elements people have come to associate with the character. Sure, it features the familiar moral…
An explosion of imagination and visual ingenuity, Man of Steel manages to feel like the future of cinema and an instant classic all at once. It follows the bare bones of the source material, then injects a strong dose of modernity and eliminates the duality between Clark Kent the journalist and Superman. The early reviews for this film are polarized for all the wrong reasons. Something that's been slowly building over the last few years has finally come to a head with reviews of this film. When it comes to big, flashy summer blockbusters, critics have taken extremely negative stances on popular films for the sake of being "above" all the noise. This isn't a film that needs to be…
There is a scene in Man of Steel that says it all.
In the middle of a showdown with the bad guys in downtown Metropolis with people everywhere, a flaming truck or some other huge thing is thrown towards Superman who is standing in front of a building. A building presumably filled with people.
Superman jumps out of the way.
He jumps out of the way.
The truck goes into the building destroying I don't how many floors killing I don't know how many people. I have to ask: why didn't Superman catch the truck and throw it over the buildings out of the city to land on some out of the way field to save some lives?
"but what if i have to tinkle?"
you will believe a man can sigh. hopelessly torn between regurgitating a myth & telling a story. inert, dull & terribly timid. the genome of a Nolan film & none of the grace. flashback structure fatally enervates the narrative. hardly any actual *scenes,* even fewer actual characters.
Cavill is great / wasted. Adams is given a petulant and banal Lois Lane. Shannon acquits himself, and yet enjoys not a single memorable moment (his henchwoman steals the show with her Metal Gear moves).
neat design elements, i'll give it that. the thought of a sequel has me locked in the fetal position. no more, zack snyder. no more zack snyder.
Man of Steel is devastating. No, not because it's a disappointing film - though always when one attempts a new take of one of popular culture’s beloved icons, especially when prior visions have been so successful and accepted by the public in such an easy tone, it's not hard for one to instantaneously pull out that card. Rather it's a heartbreaking, draining and powerful origin story of the most true kind; one not afraid to strip out fanfare to show a humane struggle of one man to achieve potential greatness.
Zack Snyder's take on Superman is not a superman movie; it's a man of steel movie - our lead is not a hero, rather one striving for it, but in…
Zack Snyder can paint a pretty picture, but that's about all he's got going for him.
El caso es que Sneider se mola demasiado.... Escenas de postureo con algo brillante, pero laaargas, mucho edificio cascao, mucho humano agachándose.... En fin, entretenida y alguna fase molona, pero con un esto menos de metraje, mejor. Además, las muerte de Jonathan Kent entrará en la historia del cine como una de las más idiotas.
Superman a man with no flaws (besides Kryptonite), unfortunately all Superman movies have their flaws but its whether you hate them or embrace them that changes your taste on these movies. Man of Steel features the first British actor, Henry Cavill, as Superman. Many other famous actors/actresses are included: Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent, Superman's adoptive mother), Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent, Superman's adoptive father), Russell Crowe (Superman's father), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White). Although sites like IMDb gave this movie a good rating (7.3/10) I know many friends and relatives did not like this movie, I can see why. Lois Lane is not the fragile, in-need-of-rescue woman that Superman usually saves, but the directors felt like they had…
I saw this one long after all the negative buzz was in, and I was really hoping everyone was wrong about it. I kept my hopes high as I really wanted to enjoy it. It started out good, but pretty quickly fell apart and became a paint-by-numbers boring action movie.
I've liked this film. I've hated this film. I now accept this film. This is like the child I didn't want but I'm stuck with. I have to love it. It's family lol
I am not a huge superman fan, though i do know some stuff about him, and i think he would make a better villian than a hero, just saying. For a movie telling the back story of superman, this was really good and enjoyable.
DC films needs to take a page from the competitor on how to make super hero films. This one is better then Returns, but falls real short of the Batman films. It has a great backstory, but wastes most of it to just showcase the Super Hero tropes.

I liked! I'm foward Batman V Superman
Es difícil comulgar con el realismo que propone DC en sus producciones de superhéroes cuando:
a) El diseño de producción es horrible.
b) La destrucción de propiedad pública y privada solo sirve para crear algunas imágenes reminiscentes del 9/11 ¡USA! ¡USA!
c) La muerte de Jonathan Kent es absolutamente ridícula. No sé en qué momento cualquiera de las tres cabezas pensantes de esta película pensó que podía funcionar. David S. Goyer, metiendo mano en los peores mojones del cine de acción (y terror) desde Blade:Trinity.
En fin, que si la gente flipa con que Superman rompa la barrera del sonido cuando vuela ("porque eso es lo que pasaría de verdad") y con que la cámara la mueva un cojo, me parece cojonudo. Vista por segunda vez y sigo sin comprar. Ni que me lo regalen, vamos.
