Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

Just got back, gave it an A-... I liked it a lot, good performances all around, and nice eye-candy abounds. My major quibble is the sheer volume of the collateral damage in the final hour of the movie, and in Kal's seeming unconcern with it other than to save the colonel and Lois -- I know he was in the middle of a pair of fights, but the way the movie casually killed tens of thousands of Metropolis residents [at least] seemed very un-Superman-like to me. The action sf movies seem to have to one-up each other on the carnage scale these days, with Pacific Rim next on deck... Avengers' NYC battle looks like a minor kerfuffle after seeing this one.
