I was really hoping for better as this was practically filmed in and around my hometown (Plano, IL AKA Smallvile, KS) and I was able to watch as the town center was transformed into a big set for the movie. Not to mention it was open when not shooting so you could walk around the set and see all of the fake buildings they built. It was very cool and I was hyped when the movie came out but was somewhat let down, while not as bad as the last Superman I felt the action/fight scenes were too drawn out especially as you got to the second half of the film. But I am still going to pick the combo pack just for the added special features!

I'd just like a good 4k restoration of Superman: The Movie. Heck, even a deluxe cut of Superman II taking the best parts of the Lester and Donner versions and making a complete film would be amazing.

They can keep this dismal reboot.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

What are you negative commenters smoking? This was probably the BEST movie I've ever seen. Come on, Kevin Costner practically reprising his Field of Dreams role as Superman's Earth dad. How can you not love that? They did a fantastic job with this reboot.

I haven't seen it yet but I have to agree. You gotta roll with the different eras of super hero movies. Who would have thought anyone would make a better joker than Jack Nicholson? Heath Ledger was better IMO. So I'm going into this with an open mind and from almost all accounts I won't be disappointed. Superhero movies don't end with the first set of movies, and honestly if your a fan who wants them too.

How many movies have you actually seen? biggrin.gif

Superman is not Batman or Watchmen. This story is not supposed to be as dark and brooding with death and mayhem reigning down everywhere (some of it at the hands of Superman himself with basically little to no thought for others). What Nolan and Snyder gave us was not Superman, but a hollow imitation.

Superman, unlike some of the other superheroes, is about ideals that everyone should look up to. Kal-El can't even do this throughout most of this particular film. And the ending... gaahhh!

At least they tried to do this with the first two Christopher Reeve films and mostly succeeded. Superman: The Movie is a quintessential, epic comic book film that the whole family can enjoy, and there have been many that tried and failed on that front.

Heck, the script wasn't even that good. Just a bunch of expository dialog with slick MTV music video sequences strung together. I still can't figure out the point of Lois Lane in this film. She was practically pointless when she is supposed to be a pivotal character.

I agree that this film was a huge disappointment on just about every level, with the exception of Amy Adams.

I've yet to see proof of any death at the hands of Superman or disregard for other people's lives on this movie.

Something that's present on this movie as well.

Reeve's films were just one of the many possible versions for a Superman movie adaptation. To make it more than it is only shows close-mindedness.

Your opinion of the script aside, you are definitely not talking about Man of Steel.

Lois Lane, as shown in the movie, essentially represents Superman's connection with humanity (both in terms of trust and love).

Alexrd,

My opinion of the script (or lack thereof) and the film making style are two of the reasons I thought this film was an epic failure to capture the essence of Superman. Heck, Michael Bay could have made this film. Zack Snyder seems to want to emulate him... and I've seen all of Zack''s other work. Pure banality.

The latter half of the film was 100% disaster porn like Transformers or just about any other modern summer movie.

Here's the script in a nutshell: blaa blaa blaa EXPLOSION yadda yadda yadda EXPLOSION EXPLOSION EXPLOSION EXPLOSION EXPLOSION blaa blaa THE END

That's all the studios want and that's all they expect from today's screen"writers."

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

You are free to not like the movie and respective script or the film making style of Snyder. But that doesn't make your claims any more true.

Was it? Even supposing that action scenes with destruction are something inherently bad (which is not true), their duration far from being half of the whole movie.

Wow. Very eloquent argument... It even, for some reason, ignores 95% of the movie (story, character development, etc...).

I'm not saying there can be no destruction or death in an action movie, I'm just saying the level of it was WAAAAAAAY over the top. The Superman of the Chris Reeve films went out of his way to draw the fight from Metropolis to a more secluded region to minimize casualties. He cared A LOT that innocent people were in danger and they emphasized it in the movies (a big weakness of his, as Lex Luthor and Zod pointed out). If there was fighting within the city, he would put himself in jeopardy to stop bystanders from being hurt. There were maybe a handful injured, not thousands or even millions killed without Supes even batting an eye.

Today's blockbuster films hit you over the head with an anvil of excess that doesn't make the stories any better, but instead shines a light on the fact that without the special effects eye candy sequences of pure mayhem, there really isn't much substance there. It's like jangling shiny keys over the audiences' heads to distract them from the unfortunate fact that the film makers put no effort into making something good.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

The Superman of Snyder wasn't as fortunate (or should I say innocent?) to be the one to decide where the fight should take place. Zod was in the city precisely to destroy its people because he knew that's what would affect Superman. He couldn't just go away and expect Zod to follow him.

I would agree that in terms of pacing, the movie didn't need so much fighting sequences together, although I understand why they did it. But that doesn't mean I ignore the story that has been told throughout the movie, the plot, and its characters. And in my opinion the movie specially shines on those.

I would agree if we were talking about some other movie like Trasformers, Avengers and the like. I just think this one has much more to it that doesn't deserve to be compared or put in the same category as those.

How many times can you do a movie true to the original comic book or true to the original story line before your beating a dead horse? I think some of you are totally missing the point. They never said it was a remake of Superman and alternative is the character dies and no more SM movies. Maybe I'll think it stunk when I see it but I'm going to give it a chance.

I liked the movie. It wasn't the greatest but it was pretty good. I will say that I saw it after it had been out a week, the theater was packed and at the end the crowd burst into applause. I can't remember the last time that happened at a movie theater I was at.

I did not see it in the theater but I am anxious to see it on 3d Blu-Ray. This despite the mediocre peer reviews and the fact that out of all of the superheros, Superman is my least favorite. Superman the comic book hero is too powerful for me to be able to suspend reality. If he just had incredible strength and could jump really high/far instead of the kitchen sink powers such as xray vision, heat vision and defying gravity by flying without any sort of explanation as to how he can do it... At least I expect it to be a visually compelling movie (and lots of sh*t blows up). A good popcorn flick.

No matter where you go, There you are ;)

Perhaps. But after the dreary and vacuous funeral dirge of Man of Steel, how will anyone be able to tell?

I never saw Man of Steel in the theatre, but the wildly different opinions here make me want to see it for myself. Plus, I am always on the lookout for well made 3D titles. I will wait for Ralph's opinion on the Blu-Ray quality before I snap it up.

I don't buy a lot of BR's anymore, but I will be picking this one up. I really loved this movie and I don't understand the hate. Way better than the other movie called Iron Man 3

To me, it was somewhat interesting seeing the different take on where he came from and how he arrived to earth. At the same time, the ending was anti-climatic, and what led up to the ending unnecessary and I just didn't like it (but it IS a movie). Probably rent to see what it sounds like and to see how the picture looks on the Kuro. Not planning on buying.
