I've seen MOS twice over the weekend, and as much as I was looking froward to seeing this from the moment it was announced, I was mildly disappointed.
Like many people have said before, this could have been great, but just wasn't. Most of the time I didn't even feel as though I was watching a Superman movie. It just went too far off the rails for me, but not in a good direction.There was the stupidly forced romance. Why even bother with that in the first movie? Granted, these are two good looking people, but still. The many many many plot holes and lapses in logic. The underwhelming score. The Star Wars prequel feel in the beginning of the movie. The unnecessarily dark color palette, that did nothing from an aesthetic point of view. Zod was not an effective villain(as others have also said, he had just one gear the entire movie). The ridiculously hot, female commander felt much more menacing, powerful, and just bad ass. The CGI during fight scenes was really not good enough. They really stood out as simply animated characters created on a computer with too little frames of animation. I would also have liked feel more connected Superman as a character, but I wasn't.
On the flip side, I loved the climactic battle. It was what I wanted to see in Matrix Revolutions. I didn't love Henry Cavil as Supes, but he did a good job. Lois Lane was great. The script was good. The SFX on superman flying was great. Russell Crowe was amazing. I liked that if had a bit of a Sci FI feel to it, even if it felt out of place.
Overall it was a good movie. Not fun enough for a blockbuster, and a bit too dark in tone. But still a good movie.
I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!
