Here’s When The Batman vs Superman Review Embargo Is Lifted

| March 18, 2016

Here's When The Batman vs Superman Review Embargo Is Lifted Culture News  Movies Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

We’re just a week away from Batman vs Superman coming out to cinemas worldwide and fans don’t have to wait too long now for the first critic reviews to be posted online.

Freelance writer/film critic, Eric D Snider, posted information on the embargo over on his Twitter account: “Embargo on BATMAN V SUPERMAN reviews is 3 p.m. on 3/22, or 4 hours before the screening. Do NOT run your reviews prior to seeing the movie!

Snider is a critic that is included on Rotten Tomatoes and he has reviewed tons of other movies on his official website. He’s likely to be one of the few lucky media folk that will be able to see the movie before anyone else come March 22nd, 2016.

However, the embargo is actually a day after the IMAX fan screening that occurs on March 21st, 2016. You’ll probably see some Twitter reactions and other impressions about the film early next week sometime before its March 25th release date in North America.

Reception for the film has been positive so far for those that have been able to see it earlier this year. The most famous mini review/reaction was posted by an Entertainment Weekly writer who said he liked the film.

Warner Bros. executives appear to be really high on Ben Affleck’s performance in Batman vs Superman which is why he’s getting his own solo movie.

Hopefully the movie’s reception goes well as this movie is important to kick-start the slate of other movies that Warner Bros./DC are releasing for the next several years.

    if the reviews arent different from what people criticized MOS on then Synder learned nothing. sure the film gets a lot of money but we end up with a messy story that doesnt function.

    • Batman

      Curious. What was wrong with MOS?

      • patriot8813

        Really? You don’t know the criticisms of MOS or are you only looking to argue about them?

        • Chris Prestipino

          Im curious as well, what was wrong with it?

          • JeffMc2000

            There are about a hundred critic reviews on the Rotten Tomatoes website if you’re genuinely curious about peoples’ thoughts on the movie.

          • patriot8813

            Oh come on, the movie has been out for years. You know the criticisms people have for it. Just looking to argue about it again. Its cool, I get it, its fun to argue. The reality is some people don’t like the stuff you like, Man Of Steel for instance, get over it.

          • Carnell Johnson

            Asked a simple question

          • Oldschool1987

            Same as you, some people like stuff you do not like, get over it.

          • Andrew Lowson

            surely it would’ve been easier to just answer the question, instead of being like this…

          • patriot8813

            Why do people insist on arguing about the same stuff for years over and over and over again? And when someone calls out that b.s. people like you are there to feign some type of outrage about it. There are plenty of people, just look at the thread, who are willing to continue arguing about bad movie years after release. This argument has been done to death, everyone here knows exactly what people think the faults of MOS are. No need to feign ignorance for the sake of arguing about it. Just move on.

          • LM

            The 75+ year old symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way” was replaced with an angst-ridden, anti-hero. That’s not Superman. You may have preferred this character, but that just means you don’t want to see a Superman movie.

          • Shorehater

            I’m a Superman fan for life and if I hear one more time that wasn’t a Superman movie I’m gonna gag! It wasn’t a perfect Superman film but it was an exciting one with a terrific Scifi spin! I loved the reimagination of Krypton and I hope the new tv series continues those ideas if not the next MOS sequel! Oh and I loved that they went the dark route!

          • LM

            Hey, you have every right to love this movie, but, being a Superman fan, you know better than anyone that this was not an accurate presentation of the big blue Boy Scout (how Washington Post described him).

            And you know, too, Superman isn’t dark. Loving this film simply means you don’t want to see a Superman movie, but one of a superhero with a similar back story, but darker character.

          • The Flying Dutchman

            Honestly MOS is the Superman movie I always wanted. After reading Superman: Earth One that was exactly the kind of Superman story I had wanted for a long time. Idealism traded for Realism. So when MOS had very similar themes I was excited for it and loved it. The situation and consequences of superpowered Kryptonians battling it out in the middle of Metropolis was realistic and yet that seems to be one of the film’s biggest criticisms: the mass destruction caused by Superman and Zod fighting in a skyscraper filled city. Seemed like the biggest complaint about the film essentially always boiled down to Superman not being as idealistically “perfect” as he is in the comics. That’s what it always seemed like to me in which case I expect that those same people are gonna have the same criticisms about BVS.

            Personally from the trailers the only thing that bugs me about the BVS trailers is that it always seems to portray Superman as the villain. It always seemed like a very one-sided marketing attempt at getting people to rally behind Batman.

          • LM

            Actually, if you stop and think about it, the destruction of Metropolis was very unrealistic. I wager that if you were to ask any law enforcement officer or soldier, they would tell you they do their best to avoid exchanging fire where civilians are present.

            However, I do understand why you liked the fight in the city, for it’s more captivating than watching a fight in the desert, away from civilians. It’s right out of Michael Bay’s playbook (and, no, that’s not a compliment)! If you saw “Transformers”, you’ll remember the good guys drove THROUGH a desert to fight in the city! Absolutely stupid — BUT captivating to watch the destruction of sky scrapers and civilians running about!

            Understand, too, that your liking of MOS comes from a comic you read, and wanting to see that story. An awful lot of money was spent to tell a story that aligns with one comic, don’t you think? After all, haven’t there been thousands of Superman comics over the years, going in all different directions story-wise, and having him behave in all sorts of manners? I would guess that Superman: Earth One is a tangential comic, taking Superman in a different unique direction. Absolutely fine for a comic. But a major motion picture?

            I agree that the trailers are portraying Superman as the villain. It’s interesting that the one clip of Superman ripping off Batman’s cowl, complete with genuflecting henchmen, is, according to devoted fans, a nightmare sequence. It begs the question of why would that clip be used to sell the movie? The studio thinks that will excite the audience, seeing a villainous Superman? After all, only after online research, did the fans learn it’s a nightmare scene.

          • Opollo John

            MOS was slow and mono tone, it took itself way too seriously, no real balance of humor or brevity (ie wasn’t very enjoyable) and some of the story was stupid…Jor-El throughout the entire movie? Why kill him at all? Zod was a caricature, Lois was boring, greenie Supes gets his ass kicked by Faora, but he kills* Zod? (*this can be redeemed if part of story in BvS)…(MOS grade C+)

          • Prime

            Guess you would have preferred a boring ass superman who saves cats outta trees the whole movie, and not thrown a single punch. Smiling the entire movie and saving things the whole time. Lmfao! Who the hell wants to see that crap? Just like lame ass superman returns.

          • steadymobb

            The thing is, MoS WAS boring

          • Matty Thoburn

            That’s your opinion. Stop saying it like it’s your fact lol

          • LM

            A significant part of the problem may be that Henry Cavill lacks charisma. Now, this isn’t fact, but my estimation of him. However, have you ever wondered why the only movie he made between these two is “The Man from UNCLE”? That’s a three year stretch. Perhaps he realizes he lacks screen presence.

            To offer you a tangible example of what I mean by charisma, Margot Robbie is dripping with screen presence in the “Suicide Squad” trailers! I predict that movie, whether a success or not, will launch or into the “A” list of actors (I think Jared Leto’s Joker may be annoying to many people.)

          • I don’t like Jared Leto as joker.

          • Oh, so you’ve seen the film? Tell me about it.

          • Toneone3000

            The film is a knockoff of ‘The dark knight returns’ with a Superman role expansion. Its even animated now so you dont even have to read it. SPOILER Batman wins.

          • Daniel Higgins

            HMM I AM GOING TO GUESS YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS OR ANY SPOT FOR BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, JUST BECAUSE THE USE THE Same bat suit in one fight doesn’t even come close to a knock off don’t let people tell you what to think do it for your self don’t be lazy.

          • Phillip Grant

            I would not call it a knock off. Frank Miller and Alan Moore have huge influence on the modern Batman. If it were not for those two we would not have Tim Burton 1989 batman. Nor Christopher Nolan batman. Unless we want to go back to Adam West batman like Joel Schumacher did made the worst batman movie and possibly one of the worst movie of all time.

          • I haven’t seen the film, I just don’t like the new version of the Joker. When I imagine the Joker, I don’t imagine someone who has a ton of muscle and is covered in tattoos.

          • Shorehater

            You haven’t really seen him yet as the Joker, only trailers!

          • I haven’t seen the film, I just don’t like the new version of the Joker. When I imagine the Joker, I don’t imagine someone who has a ton of muscle and is covered in tattoos. I like the actor, I just don’t like how the Joker looks. Especially the grills on the teeth.

          • sarcasticelastic

            would it help any if I told you I heard his jaw was broken and most of his teeth got knocked out after he killed Robin. I’m hoping that is true as it makes his look story driven.

          • My opinion might change when the movie comes out though. I used to hate on Ben Affleck being Batman but my opinion changed as time progressed and it might change too with Jared Leto.

          • Stephanie Press

            I loved Cavill in The Man from UNCLE, but was not feeling him as Supes at all. Two completely different characters. Napoleon is smarmy, which Cavill can pull off.

          • Shorehater

            Leto is a fantastic actor and even outside of the Joker which I think he will reinvent I cant wait to see what he will do next outside of the DCCU!

          • Opollo John

            agreed!

          • prometheus59650

            It is fact to him, so it’s a fact to him.

            Art is completely subjective, that’s why you’re never talking someone into liking what you don’t or vice-versa.

          • Prime

            Marvel movies are boring. Every single one except winter soldier. Fact!

          • Mpulse

            I don’t think MoS was boring. I think Clark Kent is a boring character that most people really don’t care about. Which is probably why these Superman films are pretty meh. The truest line I heard from the B vs. S trailer came from Perry. “Nobody cares about Clark Kent”

          • Shorehater

            “Nobody cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman!”, actually. Read some comics, Kent is a more complex character then many people think! Lots of stories illustrate that!

          • Mpulse

            Agreed. He is a more complex character, but seeing as how over 20 plus years and 6 movies later, and we have yet to see anything interesting makes him boring to watch on screen. I’ve read plenty of Superman comics. I’m not trying to diss the character….not like Warner Brothers is. For someone who has read the comics you should already know how boring he is to watch on screen.

          • sarcasticelastic

            I agree. There are no bad characters, just bad writing. Aquaman was a joke until good writers like Peter David, among others, took him and brought out the best in the character. Superman can be a fascinating character in the right hands without making him all “grrr…I’m dark and grim grrrr. Ignore my hollow flat characterization because I’m dark grrr…” Flash is a light hearted character and CW is doing that justice. Even when a STORYLINE is dark he still the same character. Arrow is a dark character, but that’s ok. He’s meant to be. Even in light humorous episodes he’s still a dark person. He and Batman and Punisher and Wolverine can be dark. Spidey Flash and Superman are better light. And when grim and light team up? The contrast sharpens the enjoyment of the viewer. If they’re all dark it just makes things muddled.

          • Troy Terry

            why does Man Of Steel or Superman Returns have to be the only 2 superman films we can get. We don’t want either, Superman has plenty of animated movies that had plenty of action and got his character right. I don’t see why it’s so hard to that in live action.

          • Prime

            MoS was great. Best superman movie. I suppose you can make a better one right?…Lmfao

          • Troy Terry

            If MOS is great than every Marvel movie(except Hulk & Thor Dark World) & The DK trilogy are cinematic masterpeaces.

          • Prime

            Lmfao every marvel movie besides cap 2 and avengers1 was trash. You marvelzombies love everything marvel makes no matter how bad. They feed you crap and you marvelzombies eat it up and love it. Nothing but that cartoonish kindergarten movie look for kids with cheesy as hell one-liners every 10 seconds of the film. Can’t even take their movies seriously. As soon as you think things are getting serious and stakes are high, they go to some stupid joke or cheesy one-liner. And the Dark knight trilogy was good. I could’ve done without talia’s horrible death scene. And without bales throat cancer voice. And would have loved some more of Heath ledgers’ joker. And would’ve loved to see bale actually fight like Batman instead of fighting like….well im not sure what to compare it to, but it was horrible as hell fighting choreography that’s for sure.

          • Troy Terry

            The fighting sucked in The DK trilogy admittedly and DKR sucked IMO but that’s here nor there. I don’t really think every marvel movie is great but every one is better than MOS with the exception of Hulk & Thor Dark World. The only MCU movies I love are Avengers, Guardians, Cap 2, Iron Man, Ant Man, Thor & Age Of Ultron the other movies are just good or ok. Over seriousness only works for certain characters like Batman, Daredevil, Punisher etc. A movie without humor(especially a super hero movie) usually sucks unless it has something special going for it like Batman Begins & The Dark Knight had going for it. Superman should have had a much lighter and brighter tone because he is the embodiment of hope and accomplishment. I knew after The Dark Knight dumbass directors would try to apply that darkness to other superhero movies and would fail doing so MOS & The Amazing Spider-man are perfect examples of this. I have faith in the DCEU, BVS & Suicide Squad. I’m not a DC hater or a marvelzombie I actually love DC almost as much as marvel but MOS was a shitty way to start their Shared Cinematic Universe especially compared to how great Iron Man is. I don’t understand how someone could really love one company and hate the other when they copy each others characters and have the same writers and artists. If you hate Marvel you should hate all super heroes and same goes for hating DC.

            The first reviews are in for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, ahead of the film’s worldwide release later this week and the critics haven’t exactly been kind to Warner Bros and Zack Snyder’s epic.

            The range of middling reviews have praised the visuals, soundtrack and a handful of the film’s central performances, but criticised its plotting and attempts to set up for future films and atone for ‘Man of Steel’.

            The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin wrote in his two star review: “No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose.

            “It grumbles along for what feels like forever, jinking from subplot to subplot, until two shatteringly expensive-looking fights happen back to back, and the whole thing crunches to a halt.”

            Chris Nashawaty wrote in his review forEntertainment Weekly: “’Dawn of Justice’ starts off as an intriguing meditation about two superheroes turning to an all-too-human emotion: hatred out of fear of the unknown. Two and a half hours later it winds up somewhere very far from that—but at the same time, all too familiar.”

            SlashFilm had a lot of praise for the film’s opening hour, saying: “Zack Snyder knows how to start a movie with a bang, often doing so with a kick-ass montage. Batman v Superman is no different from Snyder’s previous films in offering us a visual feast up front.”
            HOWEVER, the review also reveals a disappointing truth about the film marketed and named after its clash between two superhero icons: “If you’re going to see ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ to see Batman fight Superman, you might end up being disappointed. The film only features a few minutes of the two DC superheroes battling it out, and you won’t see that until a long way into the film

            Critics weren’t so kind to Jesse Eisenberg’s turn as Lex Luthor, with The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy saying: “The solemn, grandiose atmosphere is severely disrupted by Luthor, portrayed by Eisenberg as a privileged high-tech guru who would make the actor’s take on Mark Zuckerberg look like the epitome of style and manners.

            “Loaded with vocal ticks and gushing with smarmy ripostes and threats, the character is loathsome without an ounce of insidious charm; if the legacy of the studio’s Dark Knight films might have suggested anything, it should have been in the area of great villains, but here there is just a great vacuum.”

            Finally, Den of Geek’s Ryan Lambie says: “Explosive, visually stunning and sometimes thought-provoking, ‘Batman V Superman’ is undeniably a feast for the eyes and ears.

            “Yet as the final credits roll, the overwhelming sensation is not of satisfaction, but of shell-shock. Like Snyder’s divisive ‘Man Of Steel’, ‘Batman V Superman’ goes for a maximalist approach which is likely to thrill some and alarm others. Once again, Snyder brings a gun to a knife-fight.”

            Why do you feel the need to offer an hyperbole to make your point? The superhero doesn’t have to go to the extreme of saving a cat and not throwing a punch in order to not be a dark brooding character. Unfortunately, when you offer “smiling the entire movie” shows you don’t understand the argument. Such an extreme isn’t necessary to avoid being anst-ridden.

            Perhaps you should watch “Superman: The Movie” again, for you’ll see Donner treats Superman quite seriously. I’d ask if you remember when he turned the earth backwards in that movie, but, based on how you worded your comments, I’m guessing you may be 12 or under, and haven’t seen Reeves’ movie.

            It went over your head i think, Its a superman who’s learning about himself. The apple pie superman (that people are stuck on) is still there just gotta look harder/wait til you see BvS, i think it’ll deliver.

          • LM

            Wanting to replace kryptonite with loneliness as Superman’s weakness (Snyder’s own intent, as he shared in the Man of Steel cover story in Entertainment Weekly), isn’t really “apple pie,” as you put it. And there’s a reason people are stuck on the ‘big blue Boy Scout’ Superman (as he’s described in Sunday’s Arts & Entertainment section of the Washington Post). That’s how he’s known.

            Do you really think that Boy Scout image will be given to us in “BvS”, what with him saying things like, “The Bat is dead. Bury him,” and “if I wanted you dead, you would be.”? And those are just lines from the trailers, so who knows what else he might say, or how he’ll act (like fighting Batman in the rain).

            So, respectfully, if you’re expecting to see the do-gooder Superman, you may well be very disappointed.

          • Stephanie Press

            Or just that the character is about hope on the most basic level and these films don’t have that?

          • Rene Reyes

            I disagree.

          • Matty Thoburn

            That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Anti hero lol. He’s dealing with personal problems in the movie. Everything is hitting home, his home planet destroyed, zod the only thing remaining from where he was born, sure, he’s angryou, wouldn’t you be if that’s all you had left of home. Some militarised ass hole whom screwed his father over.

          • LM

            Actually, that is how the script was written. It could’ve been written differently. You are defending the story as if it actually happened. The tone was dictated be the screen writers and Snyder.

          • Travis Eicher

            Im sorry that you didn’t get the exact same 75 year old superman story you wanted.

          • Really?

            “The 75+ year old symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way” was replaced with an angst-ridden, anti-hero.” I am very confused as to what world you are living in? of course the character has an arc, a backstory, a mythology, a sub culture, a following. However how can you be that naive? 1. Firstly, as an individual you will of course have relations to a character in the way you want to see humanity and how you possibly wished you could be, or for that matter the surrounding habitat, however it makes no sense to hold resentment for what you have grown to love if you realise the economics or what you are entailing. How can the original character ever fit into the relatable world today, even if grounded in fiction. One would assume aspects/points of the character would be relatable, which is an obvious point. We are not aliens nor do we have an inkling of true fact about the matter yet we suspend our belief out of fantasy and escapism, but the true relation of that character to the every day person is alienation, loneliness & belonging. psychologically this makes perfect sense, to a being that has no equal yet must bend to an extent to please the surrounding environment, After all the character (superman) is not a dictator, given his character traits are born out of civility and humanity. If you were, as you take it so seriously, in his shoes, do you think you would not be angst-ridden? of course you could retort with well its superman! he is the exception, however that can not be true as his supposed main strength is also his weakness, the fact that he was raised by human or if you like the human factor makes him a paradox of his own power. you could call that a conscience, 2. To quote “The Newsroom” America is not the greatest country in the world anymore. True fact. this again goes back to being relatable, given the current standing of the world, how do you expect to make a movie based on those ideals that are 75+ years old within modern society? The world is no longer black or white, and it never was. As a fan, you people embarrass me, you talk about things like you own them, like you made them, Where is the appreciation for the hard work going into these things? how can you demand one thing when you show not respect to the people doing the job? If you are not happy with what you get, I am sure you all can scrap together to can buy the rights, write the script, hire the production teams, pay the actors, fund all the necessary production departments both pre/post, and distribute through the correct channels. In Fact I CHALLENGE THE INTERNET! IF YOU CARE SO MUCH, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT RATHER THAN BELITTLE PEOPLE LIKE A MOB WHO ASK SIMPLE QUESTIONS. THE POINT OF COMMUNICATION IS DISCUSSION AND DEBATE, TO LEARN AND EXPRESS. THERE IS NO LEARNING HERE ONLY EXPRESSION BY NO VALIDITY. one may like science but you would not let an untrained doctor operate on you?

            When someone write one paragraph that long, I don’t bother reading it. It’s a rant, and thus, usually includes many inaccuracies (didn’t stop to self-edit). You obviously disagree with me, and that’s fine. It’s just not worth continuing with someone who goes on a tirade.

            Why did zod bring lois on to his ship? There was no reason for that besides so she could save superman. They didnt need to scan her head. There is nothing they could have learned from her about earth or superman that they couldnt have learned from superman himself. But the writers needed a way to save superman and they couldnt come up with one so they said: fuck it, throw lois in there. And after lois changes the ship back to earths atmospherics, superman breaks free and the kryptonian military scientist just shits his pants and runs, even though he has aquired all the same powers as superman and has military training. Superman has no combat training whatsoever. It makes no sence. Really sloppy writing. And after mass chaos and destruction rains down on metropolis, instead of going around helping injured victims, superman decides hed rather make out with lois for a bit?

          • NoTAFIeND

            Really? You’re wondering why this film is being considered as just another bloated Snyder movie? Well let me tell you. The film has awful pacing and jumps around in time too much at the beginning making Superman a shell of a character that the audience can barely relate to. I’m sorry but “Character Development” shouldn’t involve 20 minutes of flashbacks to a kid we don’t care about. They should have tried to keep the audience invested in adult Clark Kent as a drifter but they failed because they kept cutting bact to kid Clark Kent. None of the other characters are developed enough to care about and instead of actual dialouge the characters spout philosophical statements that work more in a Christopher Nolan film than in a Zack Snyder movie. The enitre Climax, while certainly spectacular, goes on for too long ,and ended up leaving me bored and exhausted by the time Zod and Superman fight. I think the editors should have removed the films introduction on Krypton and started with Clark Kent on the fishing boat. They should’ve chronicled Kent’s struggles as a lost soul in a world that doesn’t accept him, but instead we get mopey Henry Cavill and sloppily crammed in flashbacks that just inflate the runnning time. Another relatively minor negative in this movie is Shannon’s Zod. I like Michael Shannon, but his Zod was too over the top. ” I WILL FIND HIM!!!” I burst out laughing in the theatre when he shouted that line. Goyer’s script was hackneyed garbage as well. Man of steel isn’t flat out awful. It’s just too messy to be considered good. 5/10 will watch again on showcase.

        • Batman

          No I’m really asking. I’ve always seen the hate for this movie.

        • Batman

          I know people complained about the color and destruction at the end, but it seems like there’s more. I liked it.

          • sarcaticelastic

            I know a lot of people just fixated on the Zod thing but I had other issues with it. Firstly, can anyone tell me why Clark became a superhero? His motivation is never explained beyond saving something important to him. Why did he save the oil rig workers? In BvS Bruce’s origin and motivation are going to be explored(spoiler:his parents die). We are shown Kal’s origin, but not what motivated him. in fact between disapproving parents and childhood trauma its hard to figure out WHY he would do anything heroic. Other than “he’s Superman so he’s a hero” Pre-52 his parents encouraged him to be a hero in the comics and movies. Now they’re all “You don’t owe the world a damn thing. You never did”. So why does he? I’m actually interested in what fans of this movie would consider his motivation to be within the movie itself.

          • sarcastiicelastic

            Thirdly, I disliked Clark as a character. He is shown to be a bully in some scenes and have serious, violent anger issues multiple times- burns a teacher because his powers are freaking him out, he crushes a fencepost when teased, does atleast 10k in damages to a guy’s truck because a cup of beer got dumped on him(gas leaking and live power lines=possible innocent deaths. Does Kal care? Nope.), destroy a 10 mil tracker because he’s mad he can’t have privacy denied everyone else(…that’s a different unrelated battle). So here is our new Superman-The WolverineHulk. of Steel. I don’t want Spidey acting like wolverine or Batman acting like Richard Simmons. I also don’t want SuperHulk. Superman is a great character, he wants to be. He just lacks the script to show him the way(paraphrased from Marlon Brando). So now we have grim and gritty MoS. Acts violently when provoked. here comes Zod who:killed Kal’s father attacks both his moms, tortures Kal and his girlfriend, and threatens to kill Kal and poor a apocalyptic glass of beer over the whole Earth(that’s where all of Kal’s stuff is!)Does he go straight to the violent overreaction? Nope..We’re expected to believe that anger-management-fail man tries to lalk things out and is reluctant to lose his temper and kill Zod? This was Mos, and suddenly the real Superman shows up, kills Zod then the grim MoS guy is back. The whole Zod death scene fell flat to me, out of character.. So Clark gets violently angry except when appropriate for the situation? That’s like Wolverine being angry except when sabertooth tries to kill him.

            I doubt the plot for this film will be as interesting as Winter Soldier. Which was good as a political thriller as much as a superhero movie. Has Snyder ever made a movie with any narrative depth? I think that’s a legit question.

            It was mediocre as fuck dude. It looked like Twilight Superman. The dialogue is stale, the only good performances are Michael Shannon as Zod and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. The flashbacks made the pacing bad. The only thing good about the movie is the action as opposed to any other superman film. MOS made Zack Snyder look like he was Michael Bay trying to make a Cristopher Nolan movie.

            The first reviews are in for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, ahead of the film’s worldwide release later this week and the critics haven’t exactly been kind to Warner Bros and Zack Snyder’s epic.

            The range of middling reviews have praised the visuals, soundtrack and a handful of the film’s central performances, but criticised its plotting and attempts to set up for future films and atone for ‘Man of Steel’.

            The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin wrote in his two star review: “No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose.

            “It grumbles along for what feels like forever, jinking from subplot to subplot, until two shatteringly expensive-looking fights happen back to back, and the whole thing crunches to a halt.”

            Chris Nashawaty wrote in his review forEntertainment Weekly: “’Dawn of Justice’ starts off as an intriguing meditation about two superheroes turning to an all-too-human emotion: hatred out of fear of the unknown. Two and a half hours later it winds up somewhere very far from that—but at the same time, all too familiar.”

            SlashFilm had a lot of praise for the film’s opening hour, saying: “Zack Snyder knows how to start a movie with a bang, often doing so with a kick-ass montage. Batman v Superman is no different from Snyder’s previous films in offering us a visual feast up front.”
            HOWEVER, the review also reveals a disappointing truth about the film marketed and named after its clash between two superhero icons: “If you’re going to see ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ to see Batman fight Superman, you might end up being disappointed. The film only features a few minutes of the two DC superheroes battling it out, and you won’t see that until a long way into the film

            Critics weren’t so kind to Jesse Eisenberg’s turn as Lex Luthor, with The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy saying: “The solemn, grandiose atmosphere is severely disrupted by Luthor, portrayed by Eisenberg as a privileged high-tech guru who would make the actor’s take on Mark Zuckerberg look like the epitome of style and manners.

            “Loaded with vocal ticks and gushing with smarmy ripostes and threats, the character is loathsome without an ounce of insidious charm; if the legacy of the studio’s Dark Knight films might have suggested anything, it should have been in the area of great villains, but here there is just a great vacuum.”

            Finally, Den of Geek’s Ryan Lambie says: “Explosive, visually stunning and sometimes thought-provoking, ‘Batman V Superman’ is undeniably a feast for the eyes and ears.

            “Yet as the final credits roll, the overwhelming sensation is not of satisfaction, but of shell-shock. Like Snyder’s divisive ‘Man Of Steel’, ‘Batman V Superman’ goes for a maximalist approach which is likely to thrill some and alarm others. Once again, Snyder brings a gun to a knife-fight.”

            If they would have played up Zod’s scene when he took over all the TV’s more and went with that vibe I would understand and appreciate the dark tone but it was a wasted scene in a average movie.

            Lmfao! That’s your problem with the movie! Hahahaha! You’re a moron! What’s everyone’s motivation to be a hero in avengers? You must hate marvel for not putting it in their movies than huh…Lmfao

          • Pawpr1nt

            I think you miss the point that the characters in Avengers are already established by the time of the film, and their motivations are quite clear in that film anyway. Do you have comprehension issues or something?

          • Prime

            Established? They just shoehorn in characters in every movie and call it established….just like quicksilver, Scarlett witch, and vision in aou. And Spider-Man and black panther in Civil war. You call that established?

          • Pawpr1nt

            That’s not what I said. You were talking about the motivations of the Avengers to be heroes. By the time of Avengers, we’re aware of the motivations of each character, or there is a demonstrable reason for them to be doing what they are doing.

            In AoU, the motivations of the Maximoff twins are quite clearly demonstrated.

            Unless you’ve seen Civil War, which I very much doubt, then you have no basis whatsoever to suggest that Spider-Man and Black Panther have been ‘shoehorned in’ with no justification or motivation.

          • Prime

            Superman doesn’t need motivation idiot. He’s naturally good. That’s the point of superman. It’s in his character to be good and doesn’t need reason to be. He didn’t need to be bad first like black widow to feel sorry for himself and become good. Or he doesn’t need to have his parents killed to become a hero. What more motivation is needed for superman other than he can help people because of his abilities and he’s just a natural born hero. Like soldiers of war. Not everyone has something motivating them, that’s just the kind of people they are. Get it? And there were things in MoS that do motivate him more. I know, I watched it earlier today. So your argument is stupid and pointless.

          • Pawpr1nt

            Work on your reading comprehension, and overcoming your childlike fanboy bias – I didn’t say anything about Superman’s motivation, I was addressing your ridiculous comments about characters in the Avengers having no motivation or reason for being in the films.

          • Troy Terry

            Did you just say soldiers in war have no motivation???, you are such a tool. Superman definitely has motivations or else he’d become the version of himself from Injustice. He didn’t have to be a savior he could’ve kept to himself. Just think how different Clark’s motivations would be if he was raised in Metropolis or Gotham as opposed to Smallville. His parents give him the motivation to do great things with his power because he can.

            So superman is good because he’s good? So he has no free will? That contradicts what Jor-El said. He was birthed naturally so he would not have a predetermined destiny, only one shaped by his experiences. He is told by his human father repeatedly not to help other people(even telling clark not to save him from the tornado). Let people die was the only message he seemed to have been taught. So the movie actually contradicts you. You say there are things to motivate him in the movie. Such as…? All I saw was lust and fear motivating him.
            He shoves Zod thru a building , in the trailer he shoves batman thru a building. How long before he shoves a human with no supertech or kryptonite thru a wall, killing him? When that happens it’ll be clear Zod was murdered not killed for heroic reasons.

          • Pawpr1nt

            The Hulk is in Avengers because Banner is recruited by SHIELD to help locate Loki’s staff. Black Widow is involved because she is a highly skilled member of SHIELD, and wants to make amends for past actions. Hawkeye is involved because he is there when Loki arrives on earth, is subsequently mind controlled, used as a tool against his own organisation and wants personal revenge. Scarlett Witch is in AoU because she is being experimented on by Hydra, and she thinks that Ultron can help her get revenge on Tony Stark, who she believes is responsible for the death of her parents.

            Did you seriously not pick up on all this? Do you have ADHD?

            You cannot possibly state with any basis in fact that Spider-Man and Black Panther’s motivations in Civil War will not be sufficiently explained or justified.

            do you know how to read? Hulk has a standalone film, Black Widow, Hawkeye & Scarlet Witch’s origins are explained in age of ultron. Black Panther & Spider-Man haven’t shown up in film yet and will both get multiple standalone movies after civil war.

            The current hulk doesn’t have a standalone.

          • Troy Terry

            Yes he does, it came out in 2008 it just wasn’t Mark Ruffalo playing the Hulk. It’s still canon in the MCU because Tony Stark shows up at the end and footage of Hulk is in Iron Man 2.

            The first reviews are in for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, ahead of the film’s worldwide release later this week and the critics haven’t exactly been kind to Warner Bros and Zack Snyder’s epic.

            The range of middling reviews have praised the visuals, soundtrack and a handful of the film’s central performances, but criticised its plotting and attempts to set up for future films and atone for ‘Man of Steel’.

            The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin wrote in his two star review: “No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose.

            “It grumbles along for what feels like forever, jinking from subplot to subplot, until two shatteringly expensive-looking fights happen back to back, and the whole thing crunches to a halt.”

            Iron Man-given a second chance at life he wants to make up for all the harm he caused. (as explained in iron Man 1)
            Black widow-wants to balance out the horrible acts she did as an assassin for hire, she has red in her journal and wants to clean it off(as explained in Avengers 1)
            Captain America-Knowing what it feels like to be bullied he wants to fight against tyranny in all its forms. He could do this all day(Captain America 1)

            Hulk-doesn’t want to be a hero, needs to be convinced(Avengers 1)

            Hawkeye-ehhh not big fan of this character since he, like MoS, hasn’t been fleshed out well.He has a family is not character development, just distraction.

            Thor-guilt over having set things in motion and a feeling of responsibility as the guardian of the realms(Toor 1 and Avengers 1)

            Batman-after losing his family he feels compelled to make sure no family suffers like he did(Batman, Batman Forever, Batman Begins, Batman vs Superman{even the trailers show his father getting shot telling me more about his motivations in 15 seconds than MoS did for Clark in 90 minutes})

            Spiderman-with great power…(all togethor now) comes great responsibility) (Spiderman 1,2 and kinda in Amazing Spiderman)

            Xmen-safety for their species thru peaceful coexistence(Xmen 1, Xmen:first class)

            Antman-a chane to be the hero his daughter thinks he is(Antman 1)

            Guardians of the galaxy-the universe has given them a second chance to make a difference, common causes bring them togethor bond over battle unite them(GoG1)
            etc. etc.
            I’m not some DC hating troll, but I’m also not a DC or Marvel Zombie. And I didn’t like MoS for reasons I posted and so many more. So Prime WHY did YOU like it? What are YOUR motivations for liking MoS. I genuinely want to know. Ditto form everyone else. What did I miss that you think I might enjoy if I gave MoS a second chance?

            In my opinion, in MoS, Clark becomes a hero because it’s the right thing to do. He has the ability to save people, and moreover, he is by nature a good person at heart.

            The only problem I had with MoS after my first viewing was that the films timeline wasn’t linear. To get a backstory, we were shown flashbacks.
            After watching it a second time, my problem with the movie was gone.

            I think my issue with the movie initially was that I was subconsciously comparing it to my only other Superman reference, which was Superman – The Movie, & Superman 2, which I grew up with and loved.

            So on the second showing of MoS, I had already gotten used to the way this new take on Superman plays out, and I could enjoy the movie for what it was, as opposed to what it wasn’t.

          • Stephanie Press

            It bothered me so much that his father wouldn’t let him save him, when no one would’ve seen him? He basically traumatized his son just so Snyder could have that ridiculous moment in the plot.

          • sarcaticelastic

            Secondly, while Lois was well showcased early on, her character development got flushed in favor of a few moments of dramatic tension near the end. Hologram Jor-El gave her details on how to stop Zod. This hologram was shown to be very detail oriented(opening and closing doors with blaster stopping precision).So forgetting to mention about aligning the engine is unlikely, unless Jor-El switched sides. Still Lois forgot to report this info when she got back. She had one job:REPORTING and she failed at it? And she has been in embedded in battles where her life was in danger (according to the movie) so near death scares should not have rattled her. Yet oops Lois now dumb forget to think fall out of plane oopsie! Seriously? The only character that seemed to get developed at all besides Zod himself, now undone. And what’s up with her fall? She fell down through a gravity wave throwing everything else UP that was less than 10 tons. The world engines are as inconsistent as the characters.

          I know the criticisms, I don’t agree with them much though. People didn’t like the mass destruction? Well what do you think would happen when two God’s Duke it out and the villain makes sure he’s causing as much damage as possible. I’ve always found that criticism ridiculous. People attacked Superman Returns for not enough action and when the end of MoS made up for it people complained again.

          I made. I my own mind and didn’t listen to the Internet, Man of Steel was a solid movie.

            I always hear/read a lot more about Rotten Tomatoes than I do Metacritic. They essentially perform the same function, don’t they? I’m just curious why one seems to get more press than the other.

          • RCMacc

            RT tells what percentage of critics enjoy the movie, where as Metacritic says the average score given to the movie by top critics. So a movie everyone likes but is just enjoyable for all may get a 95 on RT but a 62 on MC.

          • Erotophonophiliac

            Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification.

          • patriot8813

            It still gives an average rating from the critical reviews. It just doesn’t advertise it like it does the Tomato meter. Its not often that a high percentage fresh film on RT gets lower than 7/10 rating but it does happen. Deadpool is 84% fresh, average rating of 6.9.

        It was dark, violent, and Superman was angst-ridden. A city was leveled, and Superman killed someone. Or, let “Honest Trailers” answer your question:
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sge5sUNJkiY

        • Weresmurf

          Superman killed 3 people in Superman 2. He took their powers away turning them human and dropped them into a bottomless chasm. Thats seemingly conveniently forgotten…

          • LM

            Superman did, indeed dispose of the villains in Superman II, but each again how he does it. He is very much in control, as opposed to being in a fit of rage.

            That tone very much makes a difference. Also, we do not see Zod and his cohorts die, do we? However, we see Superman snap Zod’s neck in MOS.

            There is a reason implied violence vs seeing it on screen get different ratings. Hope this helps clear that up.

          • Weresmurf

            Not at all, let me clear this up for you :)

            You’re right, in Man of Steel he makes a choice, saves the world. He’s got no way of stopping Zod even if he did ‘knock him out’ or something. What then? Zod wakes up and continues his rampage. Does he promise to be a good boy? Zod will only grow in power. Zod will continue to get more powerful and eventually exceed Kal El. He will continue to destroy the world.

            In Superman 2 he outright murders as they’re turned into humans. And yes, we do see Zod and his cohorts die in Superman 2, as they’re reduced to humans as Clark was, then dropped into a bottomless pit in the fortress of solitude :) You’re just splitting hairs there. Implied violence or not, you’re talking merciful killing vs murder. Two different things. One where a god fights another god on the same level, then a god kills 3 mortals who were easily restrainable at that point. Oh well.

            That’s the huge difference.

          • LM

            My friend, once again, the story is not fact, but a work of fiction. Agreed? So your scenario could have played out completely differently, all depending upon the screen writers. And, for fun, I’ll even answer your questions that are pure conjecture.

            Superman takes the fight with Zod to the nearest desert to avoid harming innocent civilians. He eventually subdues Zod. Now unconscious, kryptonite handcuffs are put on Zod, and he’s sent to a special prison a hundred miles underground.

            How’s that?! I just acted as screen writer for a moment and answered your dilemma! You see, the story you saw, making you feel those questions could only be avoided by killing Zod, are easily avoided by writing the story differently!

            And about Superman II, you can argue all you want in defense of killing Zod in MOS, because he was most likely killed in Superman II, but your arguments don’t change FACTS. We DO NOT SEE Superman killing Zod in Superman II. We assume it happened because he disappears. It’s 100% IMPLIED. That is indisputable.

            And, calling my point, “splitting hairs” is desperate on your part — albeit funny. Because, showing violence and implying it makes a HUGE different, my friend. I will provide another specific example for you to help you out. Showing the arm after Obi-Wan Kenobi slices it off in the Cantina in Star Wars changed the movie’s rating to PG. Look it up. What you are seemingly grasping at straws to call “splitting hairs” is far from splitting hairs to the MPAA system — and thus the studios! And we’re not even talking about the utter difference in intensity between the two scenes. Watch them side by side if that helps.

            Hey, I understand you loved the movie, and that climax, but it can easily be torn apart and criticized, and that bothers you.

        • Matty Thoburn

          Dark violent city levelled kills someone. The poorest criticisms of a movie I’ve ever heard.

          • LM

            The tone, with the desaturated palettes, is deliberately dark. That was done on purpose by Snyder.

            You may not like it, but those criticisms are quite legitimate. If you offered specific reasons they were bad, I’d be glad to hear them. But your just lashing out, which is easily dismissed.

      • patriot8813

        Well, you got what you wanted. A dumb, long thread discussing the same crap about a bad movie that has been discussed for years.

      • CRZYSPZ

        To me, it was a good movie (actually made me kind of like Superman, never been a big fan of “god-like” characters like Supes, Thor, etc.), but it was nothing more than that. Not very high in my “re-watchable” list and it spends a little too much time on Krypton and other build up moments for my taste.

      • DeathWarmedOver

        First and most glaring. MOS was actually Telekinetic man. First we see him jumping and learning his powers. Then we see him perfect jumping to the point of being able to float. Then we see him apply enough force to speed a 120 kg bag of supermeat to supersonic speeds, by pushing off a brick wall. Go ahead, do the calculations. The only way the wall provides enough force is by Telekinetic Man propping up the structure.

      • Opollo John

        MOS was slow and mono tone, it took itself way too seriously, no real balance of humor or brevity (ie wasn’t very enjoyable) and some of the story was stupid…Jor-El throughout the entire movie? Why kill him at all? Zod was a caricature, Lois was boring, greenie Supes gets his ass kicked by Faora, but he kills* Zod? (*this can be redeemed if part of story in BvS)…(MOS grade C+)

        The movie was one long snoozefest,expository dialogue, and generic, brooding characters. Forget about the destruction and Zod’s death. It had so much wrong with it.

        • Shorehater

          Snoozefest, get real! You obviously don’t appreciate excellent Terence Malik crew like cinematography, a great music score, and the perfect choice of using Temple of the Dog’s Seasons during the school bus rescue scene! Incredible production design, a great cast specifically Shannon as Zod and Crowe’s Jor-el, a realistic spin on a classic character! He needed to kill because anyone else would have and an f’n family was about to be incinerated! Yes there were problems but it was still alot more exciting then Superman Returns sans the Airplane scene and and the machine gun bank robbers! Plus, unlike The Avengers, like real life, Supes is going to have to answer for the Zod battle and all the collateral damage in Smallville and Metropolis! Also the bitch about, how come after Metropolis was devastated, partially, the staff of the Planet acted so calm and everthing was honkey dorey? Uh, do you think after 9/11 a New York newspaper staff who reports on disasters, crimes and horrible occurences everyday would be able to dwell and be melancholy about what happened even in their own city! They have to be professional and go on as soon as possible! Plus people deal with tragedy in different ways!

          • elasticsarcastic

            Except he didn’t answer for any of it.

        • Matty Thoburn

          It was awesome. Deal with it. Or go watch superman returns and then you’ll see what’s really wrong in a superman film

          • Troy Terry

            Just because Returns sucks and is different than MOS doesn’t mean MOS is automatically good. It’s like both Hulk films, they are different but both pretty weak.

      • Troy Terry

        Why didnt he kill zod in front of IHOP?? Or before he learned how to fly?? Or when they were fighting in the sky?? He waited until thousands of people to die just to save ONE family. Am I supposed to believe Clark had enough at that point?? I call bullshit. The ending was PIS to use Zod as Doomsday in BvS. Why couldn’t they just find a way to put him back into the phantom zone???

    • Matty Thoburn

      Yeah me too, what was wrong with mos. It was thrilling. Just cos a bunch of whiners complain about supes snapping a neck to save people doesn’t make it a bad film. Try jumping off the hatewagon for once man, it’s actually a nice world out there.

    • OnePunchMan

      I had no problem following the narrative of MOS. The story functions just fine.

    • Darby_Eternal

      Shut the fuck up idiot.

  • Sunny Singhi

    MoS was a bullshit ass kissing to Nolan themed filmmaking !

  • Sunny Singhi

    and this article itself is some fanboy dreaming ! I have read the twitter review of EW and he says if u dint like MoS you can pass this one on! The basic problem is Snyder! …why give him everything DC post Nolan till he learns to make an awesome DC movie??!

    • One Mic #Aries Breed

      I think it was Goyer’s script. 300 was well received and Watchmen was better received. A Director shouldn’t be to blame all the time. Snyder is good at what he does. He just hasn’t had a capable script writer till now.

      • SDMF

        Granted, neither of those movies had original scripts as 300 was written by Miller and Watchmen by Moore.

    • Prime

      DC>marvel

  • Steven Hiller

    The problem with superman movies is it draws alot of people who dont like superhero movies. Anything other then superman rescuing cats from trees and they hate it.

  • Wheez Von Klaw

    Just look at Batman’ s posture. Looks he needs some Xanax. Is Metropolis and Gotham supposed to be near Seattle? Snyder really wants to be taken seriously, doesn’t he?

  • jcamachott

    For the folks who did not like Snyder’s take on Superman…I really would like to see their reviews of BvS

  • I like Man of Steel more than I do Age of Ultron..

    • Shorehater

      Yeah Age of Ultron was a piece of shit for the most part until Vision showed up! I’m not a Marvel hater but i like DC more! The XMen and Captain America, Thor 1, Ant-Man films well as Deadpool even though its almost in a different Universe and a satire on Marvel films! But Im psyched about the DCCU’s future! It will be interesting to see other director’s, like James Wan and Patty Jenkins take in the classic characters and I can’t wait to see DOJ!

    • guest

      LOL
      You’re kidding right?
      Ultron was kind of a let down but still waay superior to MOS.

      • Prime

        Lmfao! Superior? Hahahahaha! Week of lametron was garbage. Worst superhero movie ever made. The only good thing marvel has made Is winter soldier. DC>marvel

        • Pawpr1nt

          We have Batman & Robin, Green Lantern, Fantastic 4 (pick one), Catwoman, Superman III & IV, Blade 3, and Superman Returns, and you think Age of Ultron is the “worst superhero move ever made”? I think that says more about your preferences than anything else.

          MoS was a dull, drab film which is a terrible crime for a Superman film.

          • Prime

            Don’t forget ghost rider 1&2 and daredevil. MoS was way more enjoyable than some stupid robot with lips who was just another one-off marvel villain. Week of lametron falls right next to all the horrible superhero movies.

          • Pawpr1nt

            Well, that’s your opinion, but to say that AoU is as bad as those other films is stretching it quite considerably.

          • Prime

            That’s your opinion. This is mine.

          • Pawpr1nt

            Indeed. And if you’re rating AoU worse than Batman & Robin or Fantastic Four, then I’d suggest:

            A. You’re very much in a minority.
            B. Your opinion is driven by some kind of agenda or bias, and is therefore pretty much worthless.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Oh trust, it’s B.

          • Pawpr1nt

            Yes. Let’s go with B.

          • Prime

            Who said worse? I said just as bad. What makes it worse is that people pretend it’s good because of the marvel logo stamped on it.

          • Pawpr1nt

            You said AoU was ‘the worst superhero movie ever’. Those were your words.

          • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

            33% and 79% audience score lmao blahahahahahahah….

          • theClownPrinceOfTrolls
          • elasticsarcastic

            Or Steel…that was the worst Superman related movie. Even worse than Supergirl movie.

          • Pawpr1nt

            I never saw Steel. Apparently that’s a good thing.

    • Prime

      Week of lametron was garbage! I will take MoS any day over marvels kindergarten movies.

      • PopalligaSucks

        Ultron was miles more entertaining than pa Kent and space dad trying to teach superman bullshit. What was with letting people die in order to protect his identity?? And he doesnt give a jack about private properties.At least ultron has some humour and superior cg and interesting storyline which MOS didn’t have. Even the rt and metacritic scores for ultron was way higher than MOS
        What MOS got 55% in rt while ultron got 75%. Even metascore was 56% for MOS and 67% for ultron

        • Prime

          Miles more entertaining? Haha! Sure marvelzombie. That movie sucked. Just another one-off villain as usual, a stupid robot with lips who was never even a real threat. Filled with bad acting by quicksilver and Scarlett witch who were just shoehorned in. And Hawkeye just invites the witch to join the avengers like it was nothing after being the bad guy. JUST STUPID! That movie was horrible. But you marvelzombies will eat up any crap marvel makes and consider it gold.

    • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

      Aou doubled mos boxoffice, and was rated better by critics and audiences..

      Marvel avg more films per year.
      Marvel avgs a bigger office then dc per film.
      Marvel avgs better reviews per film.

      Marvel avgs more films per year while avg better reviews and a bigger box office then dc.

      Your opinion means ?

      The fact is marvel >dc. FACT

      BVS IS ALSO GETTING TRASHED BY CRITICS 7/10 TOP CRITICS GAVE THE FILM A BAD REVIEW..
      CURRENTLY HAS A 41% ON RT WHILE DEADPOOL HAD A 96 DURING ITS PREMIERE.. STAY IN UR LANE..

  • guest

    March 22??
    Why so late?
    Usually the reviews for this films start coming out a week before the release. Not 2 days.

  • Wolverine

    This will get messy, Lmao.

  • Wolverine

    MOS wasn’t perfect but it was a good movie.

  • PrinceK

    Man of Steel is amazing!!!!

  • I liked MOS

  • AtariBaby

    Thanks for the info. If it’s good, I’m surprised they’re keeping a lid on reviews until the very last hours. But we’ll see!

  • Billy Heron

    ..guys I’ve been reading & collecting Superman comics for the past three decade, I have the first issue of ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ nestled amongst dozens of other iconic ‘Superman’ comics & story arcs I collected throughout the ’90’s..reading each issue over’n over, immersing myself in the exhilaration of a Superman battle just as any boy would, but also being inspired by Superman’s commitment to his morals, his codes of conduct & his inherent virtue of doing what is honest & right that made an impact as I grew into a young man…also, on a side note, in all the pictures that exist of me as toddler, I’m wearing an awesome Superman T-shirt and..ummm..diapers…okay..sooo what I’m trying to get at is that ‘Man of Steel’ is a GREAT MOVIE from the standpoint of a lifetime Superman comicbook reader & collector..it might not be perfect, (but really perfection is only ever “perception” thus having broad consensus on the matter can’t exist) but in my opinion, the movie achieved the exhilaration & shear awe that was Superman to that little boy, it captured the feel of the comics & introduced us to a Superman that can become a role model for a new generation…..

    • elasticsarcastic

      Why did i destroy that guys truck officer, doing 20k worth of damage? Because he spilled beer on me. It makes perfect sense officer. Superman would do it….wait why are you cuffing me? I’m not crazy ask Man of Steel! Letting kids drown is o.k.!!! The clown in Batman Returns was wrong to argue with Penguin about it!! Pa Kent knows better!!! <>
      Role model? Ummmm. No. Superman was. Man of Steel isn’t And that was the point wasn’t it?

  • Thaddeus Arnold

    How CAN you run your reviews prior to seeing the movie? Don’t you have to see it to review it?

  • Can’t wait for the movie to come out

  • Admiral Petty

    I really hope this movie is good. I didn’t hate MoS like some, but I didn’t love it either, I thought there were some story issues that dragged it down a little. I don’t want to feel that way about BvS though. All things being said though, since I only thought MoS was pretty good, I’ll temper my expectations a bit going into BvS.

  • theClownPrinceOfTrolls

    Reviews are bashing this film and ime looking for a homosexual by the name of prime , some people may know him as PrimeAPE OR miss prime nevertheless i have trolled him for a lil over a year now about bvs going to suck, and ive been hunting for him, so i could fill up a cup of his tears.. if he comes out of hiding let me know .

  • Shorehater
