|Shannon started off slowly - but he hit it hard with "You've taken my soul from me... and now I;m going to..."|
Obviously, this project had been surrounded by critics - Zack Snyder took a big job, that came with alot of BS - along with a huge payday. He chops up the story, and tries to make things occur faster in order to neutralize any and all negative feedback.
I enjoyed Russell Crowe here - and it's too bad the third Kryptonian's face was ot used - such a waste.
Not a big fan of the finish... what are the odds you can fight up in space - near a satellite - and then come down in the exact same city - Metropolis.
I wish these people would get darker with these stories. Another UFO prep, too, oh boy.
In the end, I actually enjoyed "Superman Returns" perhaps a little more than this, but I am very happy that the studio got it right when they brought Snyder in (although that chick flick he made prior, carries questions) and also by bringing in Shannon - they showed a stroke of genius.
Now, building upon the momentum, they are tryiong to get JP to come in as Luthor. I would go with Chris Walken.
Man of Steel also lost big points for too much US military involvement - Meroni saying "This man is ont our enemy!: Then HE flies the plae - and the dialogue wa all fake - with the general whipping out "black hole" like he has any idea. FAKE! I am looking forward to studying the subliminals in this film.
Score: 7.4982 Love Shannon in this, but again, disappointing. Thank god - a Superman flick WITHOUT LEx Luthor who is WAY overrated like alot of the Marvel Villains are. All the talent is skewed toward the good guys - and it is a BIG, BIG problem.
