    Man Of Steel

    Loved it. Have no idea why it's being slated in the press. Everything I wanted from a Superman movie and more. Well Done Zack.

    It is being slated for its glaring plot holes, and being a lot of style over substance. It was meant to be a reboot, but did nothing to show the reason for why Zod became a warmonger, did nothing to show that the laws on Krypton banned natural born children due to the genetic engineering in place (granted neither did the original series of films), and as for the plot, the only reason I can think of them wanting to terraform Earth into Krypton is because they would essentially be gods on the planet.

    Otherwise, it is great.

    I didn't think it was that good either. They could have done much more with this. Won't say too much as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, I thought IM3 was a better movie.

    I found it good, I had a few questions about one charater but part from that I enjoyed it. If you like super hero films you would most likeliy enjoy Man of Steel.

    Saw it yesterday and thought it was great. Thought it had a good balance of action along with story, I thought they really got the essence of superman through. Granted it had a few missing pieces of the backstory with the reasoning behind the genetic engineering and General Zod being a bit of a nut but to fit all that in and not leave the rest out would have made the film too long.

    Have not seen it yet but only slating I have seen is in regards to the Humour level could be improved and a few touches - still after that its being given a strong 4 star. Don't know why the complaining considering Batman begins was given a 3 and look how that trilogy turned out.

    I am seeing it tonight, I think people just expected too much from Man of Steel, maybe they wanted a Dark Knight 5 star film.

    They have already agreed on getting the 2nd one under way so perhaps we will see these problems wiggled out?

    Got bored for the most part. Looked pretty, I guess.

    Saw Behind the Candelabra afterwards and enjoyed that a hell of a lot more.

    I loved the first half, all the back story bit. Then it got to bar room brawl like fighting with added flying and explosions and I got bored. Also, he gets upset at killing someone but not for destroying multiple buildings full of people? Doesn't make sense to me...
