On my planet, the S stands for Sucks,
This review is from: Man of Steel (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
That's all that really has to be said about this movie, honestly. It sucks. It's even worse than Superman Returns, which yes, is possible. At least that film had something going for it and the actor who played the character actually seemed like Superman.
First, the pacing of this movie is horrible. It keeps jumping back and forth, back and forth. Seriously, let's get on with it already.
It really has no originality and pretty much nothing going on for it plot wise at all. I like Henry Cavill, but I think he was a very poor choice for Superman. He doesn't play him well at all. In fact, through out most of the movie he doesn't even seem like the "Man of Steel," he just seems like a sissy. Lois Lane in this movie was also really poorly cast in this movie and isn't believable in any way possible. Another bad thing about this movie is a lot of the fight scenes in it are just ridiculous and too long and drawn out. There's way too much emphasis on them. This movie really feels like nothing more than a Superman movie with a Dark Knight vibe to it, and not in a good way.
Don't get me wrong, though. There are a few things I did like about this movie. The beginning with all the scenes on Krypton, along with Jor-El and General Zod are pretty cool. In fact, those two characters and the actors portrayals of them are the only good things about this movie at all. The rest is complete garbage.
