Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

It's still a flaw for both films (and TF3, too). The cavalier dismissal of that level of destruction is problematic (though, not necessarily critical - I enjoyed MoS, Avengers and even TF3). Even if it's a common occurrence in contemporary "comic book" films, I still don't think ignoring mass death and destruction is a good thing for the films. They don't have to belabor the point. But an explicit acknowledgement of the cost of victory would be a welcome addition.
