Man of steel reviews

I loved the movie. Why are the critics ripping it? Other opinions?

I enjoyed it. It was much more comic-like than I was expecting which is a good thing. As a piece of cinema, it doesn't stand on it's own as a great movie like the Dark Knight does so I can see where critics might choose to be harsh. But it's frikkin Superman for god's sake! Action was awesome.

IDK. I liked it. I think expectations were probably too high. Maybe they thought it would be on par with the Batman movies which it isn't. I'd give it a 8/10 while I'd give the Batman movies a 10/10.

I've been told it's good.


But I have higher expectations to call a movie good than most. All my friends hate my reviews because I'm too harsh. I can already tell most will like it by it will be a fair to so so movie for me. Maybe worth the $3 rental but not $23 date night

Good movie, I think it was worth the ticket price.

I loved it. Seen it twice. Once with friends, once with my dad for father's day.

"""POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT""" just for those who care..

Alot of people had a big problem with the supermans decision at the end of the last battle. What do you guys think of it? I thought it was the right thing to do..

I guess thats not really a spoiler but y'know just in case.

Ya gotta see it in theater but I was left wanting.

The first half was better than the second half. Just too much for me when it came to throwing people through buildings. Not that it was unbelievable, they are superheroes after all but after a while it just got old.

It totally reminded me of the Neo vs Agent Smith fight at the end of the 3rd Matrix movie.

Completely necessary imho. If he hadn't done it there, he would have had to do it somewhere else. It was apparent that no matter what, Zod wasn't going to stop.

It was necessary. Superman is not known to do that in the comics and you could see that he had a problem doing what he had to do in order to save those people. For me dark knight is 10/10 and man of steel went 9/10

i really liked the movie. my two gripes were the uniforms were a little gawdy and bulky, except superman's that was kind of bad ass.

the ending was too over the top and went on for a long time, resulting in too much CGI destruction, which i thought was unnecessary.

all in all i liked it and will buy it on dvd.

I loved it and didnt think the kryptonian armor was to bulky it was pretty cool IMO. Iliked the fight scenes a lot and superman is a slightly darker character especially from one of the decisions he makes. Definetly a bluray buy for me
