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…
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?
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…
"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…
Man of Steel is one of the best superhero movies and for sure the best Superman adaptation so far. The casting is perfect. The movie is full of great actors.The action scenes and the final battle are breathtaking.
Snyder's mediocre attempt to make a masterpiece that would take Superman out of his crumbling path trough the silver screen is just another cheap and desperate excuse to start a new franchise of super-hero films that seek the glory of the superior Marvel Films have and fails.
Superman has always been a boring character thanks to his Perfect Morals, Perfect Powers and Perfect Stories that are the product of lazy writers and mind-less fans, but somehow this movie manages to steal the little personality and likeness of the character while surrounding him with generic characters and the same hollow Origin Story that we have seen a million times.
But where this movie truly disappoints is on its persistent promises and…
Loud, and boring! I didn't care for anyone except Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe!
Best superman film i´ve ever seen. Not the romantic stuff. The hard guy before the normal daily planet reporter story. With a lot of fantasy segments in it. Only one wish: let the man of steel wear his beard in the suit next time, please...
5/5 Because I am a die hard Superman fan, and besides the flaws this was just #TooMuch Nostalgia.
Not my ideal Superman movie, but more interesting than most Marvel films.
Não sou um detrator do Zack Snyder. Não desgosto de 300 nem de MADRUGADA DOS MORTOS e me amarro na insanidade de SUCKER PUNCH. Entretanto, dentre esses que assisti, O HOMEM DE AÇO me pareceu o mais fraco e inconsistente de todos. Não que a direção não tenha seus momentos: gosto da maneira como os flashbacks são filmados e também de algumas cenas grandiosas, como a do Super-Homem "voando" pela primeira vez e a destruição da nave, em que ele salta com toda força em direção ao céu. Em contrapartida, acho a sequência inicial de um tremendo mal gosto (o que é aquele parto, gente?), com efeitos especiais que não convencem pra um filme de 2013 - sobretudo quando comparamos…
So much needless destruction. It's incredible.
Man of Steel appears to be a movie that divided audiences.
I can see why.
Director, Zack Snyder has a pretty good track record when it comes to Comic Book adaptations, I think. If nothing else, he has the balls to adapt titles considered unfilmable. So how he fucked up Superman is anyones guess.
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Man of Steel, but this was a terrible Superman. Badly performed by Henry Cavil and pathetically written as a miserable bastard who will let people die just to keep his identity a secret. There was something completely off about him the entire run time.
The film is interesting though. It's approach is told…
I haven't seen this movie in a while but I will review it now in this movie Henry Cavill plays Spiderman she was a very good Superman but is he was from a plan it where there is nobody good and I was going to explode a team to earth and once he was on earth he was like I owe the earth something even though he didn't so then he was a really good guy and the movie was made really well by Zack Snyder Snyder was neither a hot girl or an animal in this movie but I was really surprised by but now I'm glad that the movie turned out pretty good actually I thought can't wait for the next one
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
