    Liked some things, some things were not as interesting. Acting seemed a little stiff.

    I liked it. I was reminded of the Justice League Superman Darkseid fight with the fights.

    I was surprised at how I never thought of Krypton as a trans-‘human’ society, but all the super science of Krypton in the movie means it only makes sense for it to be such.

    I read Mark Waid’s rant earlier, and while I agree that one action is NOT Superman, I agree with the responses that as this is the start of his career it puts a justification for his stance than Waid’s hippy decision.

    I especially liked the Lois Lane they presented. She was a good investigative reporter. I did expect a nod at her father being a general to explain her access, but it might have been cut.

    And was the satellite near the end a Waynetech?

    Overall I liked it. I liked of the twists and liberties they took with the characters and the action sequences were pretty good, but a lot of the acting seemed stiff. It was a fun movie overall especially if your able to go in without any preconceived motions and are willing to accept some of the changes made to the characters.

    Friends and I went to the bar before going to the advanced screening. We about fell out of our chairs when General Zod and his chronies were sent up to the Phantom Zone in giant flying dildos.

    From a story line stand point: first movie they almost completely obliterate Metropolis and Smallville? Seems a bit over the top. Granted, this seems to be the norm now-a-days (Star Trek they imploded Vulcan, New York in Avengers, at least they waited until The Dark Knight Rises for Gotham.

    Also, they went to great lengths to ensure there was no confusion about how Alien Kyrptonian culture is…er, was, I guess.

    It was certainly the best Superman movie that WB has done so far, and I did enjoy it. The action was well done, the improved origin of Superman was interesting and the acting was above average to great for all involved. I also liked the nods to a greater DC universe (a Lex Corp tanker truck, a Wayne Industries satelite, etc.). That being said, there was one VERY unSuperman moment in the movie. Although I understand the movies justification for it, it is still out of character. Also, I am used to Superman saving the citizens of Metropolis. With the level of devastation that occurs in the final battle tens of thousands of people must have been killed. Add to this the very 9/11 feel of people running from the falling towers (as seen in the previews) and it made me cringe a little. Overall, still a good movie and with its popularity it will ensure a Justice League movie as well.

    I defer to Waids review as he summed up exactly how I fealt about the movie. A friend and I were just talking about the movie when we discovered Waids blog and found he wrote everything we had just said.

    Yeah, I felt acting was stiff and that one action seemed against the character. Kind of felt like they tried to make this dark and gritty…but not in a satisfying way. Be curious to see how it does. Certainly not as good as the Marvel films or Batman.

    Felt they could have done without the whole Clark Kent in glasses working at the Daily Planet thing. How could everyone there NOT know who he was?

    Just got back from watching it at the drive-in and it was great. I enjoyed it a ton. And even if it is not “just like the comics” there have been so many supermans(supermen?) over the last 50 odd years I don’t know what anyone would have expected them to parrot.

    I think this movie is very solid and I hope that this helps DC to really take off on their own movies.

    P.S. Was I the only one who didn’t look online and know that there was no post-credit stuff?

    I thought it sucked. A few nice points: the tech on Krypton was cool (nano/3-D printing),the portrayal of the Kents. But mostly just drek. Way too much material leading to story gaps and plotholes, some bad dialogue/cheesey tropes, too much gratuitous special effects serving no purpose, Amy Adams just didn’t seem very Lois-y to me.

    Shades of Superman Returns – a movie which I liked, by the way. Am I going to be the only person on the planet who really liked this movie? Best Superman movie ever. I’ve been reading Superman comics since the early 1960s and I’ve seen a lot of different incarnations of the character, and this was a good one. I didn’t notice any wooden acting. Anybody who goes to a Superman movie expecting Shakespear dialog and great acting is doomed to disappointment. This is a COMIC BOOK MOVIE, people, not HIGH ART!!! At at least the acting wasn’t cheesy or campy… maybe these whiners and complainers want another Superman IV The Quest for Peace? God forbid!!! I had to admit, I wasn’t happy about what Superman did to Zod, but I was willing to accept it given that Zod wasn’t about to quit. As to Amy Adams not seeming “Lois-y” enough for some people – good Lord! At least she wasn’t Margo Kidder!!!
