The movie would be more realistic if Superman was wearing a #1 or #59 Panther jersey.

It was an ok movie. Basically very little story, character development, dialogue, and a poo ton of violence. That has to be the most violent super hero movie of all time.

Good cast. Looked really good. Was just an empty shell though. Lacked storytelling skills.


Better than superman returns, not nearly as good as Superman and Superman 2 from the 70s and 80s.

Buddy and I after words talked about how violent it was.

I thought it did a good job showing the parallels between his two dads and the influences they had on him.

Other odd observations: lots of homage to Superman 2. With all the ad placements and the over turned oil tanker being kicked on the street.
Very pro military and didn't show them in a negative light in any way. They didn't back down from anything.
A little wink to spying by the govt at the end. Maybe more after some coffee.

Disagree. It was the editing and pacing that hindered the story and characterizations. MOS was originally a 3+ hour film. That was obvious in the first act (choppy as hell).

that really excites me. gonna check it out this weekend from that comparison alone.


Snyder is an anime fan. He also added some Bleach to the mix.

Can't believe an adult actually used Dragonball Z to describe something. My kids stopped watching that poo when they were like 10 years old.


Pretentious much? DBZ is still one of greatest action-packed animes of all time. There are plenty of adults that adore it, especially those who grew up with it.

It doesn't really need to have that much plot as long as it sells lots of tickets it can do well to jump start the franchise. With Snyder as a director you have to expect more violence than plot.

 

A successful reboot is good for the franchise in general.

Not sure what bleach is. But I grew up watching the freeza, cell, buu sagas. They were beyond epic. Im gonna miss it this weekend. But im gonna try and catch it this week sometime after work.

And don't pay attention to haters. Im a 25 year old man, dbz was classic.

I thought it was good, slow to begin with but good overall. If I had gone into it not expecting action from the get go I think I would have walked out with a better feeling about it. I'm sure once I see it again on DVD I'll like it more.

Bleach was a very popular Supernatural/Swordsman anime in the States a couple years ago but its appeal has recently dipped. It's evident that Snyder was a fan because he included the Flash Step to the combat. Very well done.

Me too. I use to watch DBZ every freaking day. I still pop in a Blu-Ray and watch a few episodes every now and then. Same thing with Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in a Shell, Guyver, Escaflowne, etc. DBZ was a big part of my childhood.

Yeah, watch it as soon as you can. The first half is shaky but from there it's smooth sailing.

I want that 3 hour Director's Cut. Act One had virtually no breathing room.

As it stands, I give it an 8.5/10

Man what a boring movie, until the ending.

 

The movie looked good, but what movie doesn't nowadays?
