Dude, Zack Snyder was 2/3rds on his way to making the bestest Zack Snyder movie ever, but then he turned his Superman movie into Rampage, and then mine eyes and brain were like, NOOOOO!!!! MAKE IT STOP!!! MAKE IT STOP!!! BUTTT still, 2/3rds amazing Zack Snyder movie is > most Zack Snyder movies!!!! IT’S TRUE!!! Cause 300 was red sauce on würst pasta, no one saw that Owl movie, Sucker Punch sucked balls, and Watchmen, while technically and visually brilliant, has since left us with an empty impression. But Snyder’s Superman (called Man of Steel) felt kinda fresh and exciting, even though we already know everything about Superman, and we’re still attached to the the idea of Christopher Reeve as the one AND only Superman
Amy Adams is fine as Lois Lane, and certainly an upgrade over Kate Snoozeworth, but a deaf mute snail would have been an upgrade over Snoozyworth, so nothing shatteringearthy here. Btw, Superman Returns was totally a good movie
Michael Shannon sure puts his own stamp of terence on General Zod, but how many times can Michael Shannon make a crazy face in a movie? We worry about him!! And he so scary that we never want to meet him in real life!
OMG OMG OMG Russell Crowe as El Guapo-El Papa Frita-Jor-El was the knees bees!!!! Can he be our dad? Can there be a prequel spinoff movie where he has a beard and does stuff on Krypton like bang his hot Israeli wife Ayelet Zurer til the Krypton cows come home?? The only thing he don’t got on Brando’s Jor is awesome white hair and the ability to mispronounce his planet as ‘Kryptin’
Kevin Costner & Diane Lane as Ma & Pa Kent were good enuff. Nothing crazy, but mainly cause Smallville is the torch bearer for all young Clarkness stufffffs. And WTF was up with Pa Kent saving that dog? Look, I know people love dogs, but no dog is worth giving up yer own life for. Spoiler alert – I just spoiled a refarted movie death for you, sorry
Laurence Fishburne is Perry White, EIC of the Daily Planet. He has about as much to do in this movie as a stalk of Kent corn does
7-11, IHOP and Sears – they paid to be in this movie and they all get destroyed. KINDA AWESOME!!!
The CGI – looked great, especially the shiz on Krypton, like that giant sun
that last hour was juss TOOOOOOO much. They could cut out about half of the destroying earth stuff, and the fighting in space things, and the Daily Planet intern being stuck in rubble whatevers. Look, it’s cool to destroy a city and stuff, but the Rampageing didn’t do anything for me neither when it happened in The Avengers, and they only had a fraction of the destruction. And seriouslyly, where does a sequel go from here? How do you ‘top’ the toppling of Metropolis? I’m sure Lex Luthor will pop up in Man of Steel II, but what he gonna do? Threaten to destroy the city? Been there, DONE WAY TOO MUCH OF THAT!
There’s more to Snyder’s Superman than there is/was to Nolan (Man of Steel‘s writer/producer)’s Batman series. It’s dark, but not TOO dark, but Snyder’s Supes is be more emotional and inspiring than watching Nolan’s Bruce Wayne wax and wane. There’s no humor in either Superman or Batman, but who needs humor? Those stupid Marvel movies have TOO MUCH HUMOR, and they is juss stoopid. Enuff with winking at the camera, and just save the world, K? Snyder and Nolan somehow get it, and for the most part, it’s really f#$king super, man!
Verdictgo: Jeepers MOS DEF Worth A Peepers
