Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

I'm surprised it's been getting such overwhelming praise to be honest. I liked it, the action was great, the visuals were superb (loved the look of Krypton), the casting was excellent but I was left feeling a bit flat when it ended.

About the collateral damage thing - I'm not bothered by the fact that Superman didn't try to save anyone in Metropolis (because the basic fact is that he can't), it's just that nobody really seemed to care all that much that all these people were dying.

I'm almost hoping they make it a part of the next film, perhaps if Lex tries to use all the destruction that occurred to try and persuade people that Superman does more harm than good.
