Hope on Krypton is Just An 'S' On Earth *snigger*



Man of Steel
Not a review.
Jeng jeng jeng!
Ooooo!
Look! Up in the sky!
It's Super-emo-man!



Yeah, damn emo lor.
I can count on one hand, nay, TWO FINGERS,
How many times I actually laughed or smiled during the movie.
(Ok, I sniggered when Lois said, "On Earth, that's just an 'S'")
(I'm juvenile, sue me)
It's hardly Batman Begins,
But it's certainly as dark and as serious as Nolan's Batmovies.



No need to compare to Christopher Reeve's Superman lar
They are both completely different movies.
Reeve's Superman was a superhero for a much more innocent time.
Today, we already believe a man can fly,
So all we want is for the flying man is to be AWESOME.



Henry Cavill IS Superman.
He's WAAAY better than Branden Routh (that doesn't say much, TBH)
And is almost as good a Superman as Reeve.
But is he a good CLARK KENT?
He's a good pre-Daily- Planet Clark Kent.
But we haven't seen his mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent.
But as Superman, he's super.



WOOT! Amy Adams!
Probably my favorite Lois Lane so far.
Ok, favorite NEW Lois Lane.
But DAMMIT, NO CLEAVAGE RATING.
NONE WHATSOEVER.
So disappointing.
Sigh.



KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!!!
Wahlau this Zod damn intense lor,
His EYE look like they SEE THROUGH YOU
AND CAN BURN RIGHT THROUGH YOU.
(Which they do, literally, of course)
Scarily dangerous, this Zod.



The ACTION is awesome though.
If Batman's fights were BIFF POW BAM WHAM
This one was more like....
WHAMMO!!! WHOOSH!!
BZZZAP!! KABLAMMO!!!
WAALLOOP!!! KABIIISSSHH!!!
Fighting with Superspeed, flight, heat rays AND superstrength!
Now THAT'S a Superfight!



Good job avoiding the whole secret identity thingy though
Y'know, With Glasses = Clark Kent, Without Glasses = Superman
This is a journey of Superman BEFORE he became Clark Kent
At least the Clark Kent we all know.
It's probably going to piss off some fans
(Mark Waid certainly got pissed off at one point)
But it's solid.

Whilst it was a good origins story (grounding most things about the Son of Krypton mythos) and sets a tone for his purpose (balanced messages of Pa Kent and Jor-El), the second half (after the first meeting with Zod) just became a tiring, multi destruction fight fest. By the end, it sadly came close to Transformers territory.

So the second snigger/laugh comes from "welcome to the planet"??

Anyway, I prefer teh action scenes with Faora more than Zod. The final fight was just tiring, like what Jeevs said.
