1) Dialogue was either way too melodramatic or it was silly (half the stuff that came out of Lois's mouth)
2) Poorly developed Superman, had very little personality, especially when he donned the cape (poorly developed characters in general)
3) Forced martyr scene regarding Pa Kent
4) Inconsistent characterization
Again MoS should win some awards but there are certain aspects of the film that should not be rewarded, script being one of them (seriously for the good of Batman v.s. Superman) .
No, I meant that the video showed that it didn't have a good script.
lol my bad, I interpreted you comment as you asking me to convince why it didn't have a great script, rather than what you actually did, which was the clip showed that it didn't have a great script
There isn't a single category in which MoS wouldn't win.Man of Steel hust had the best premise and flow from these movies.The other one close to it was the Wolverine but there was Viper which distracted way too much from the good stuff at some points.
Hobbit, no doubt. MoS had a dire, self-important and melodramatic script, no idea why it's winning (guess the Vine has an awful taste in writing), and most of the others were merely functional, with Thor and 2 Guns surprising me in terms of being enjoyably silly.
@imthedamnbatman: Dramatic is fine, melodramatic (overly dramatic, like the Pa Kent tornado scene) is not. Also, a Superman film should be far lighter than MoS was, he's basically Jesus crossed with Uncle Sam, so the Nolan treatment was never going to work for him.
@marvel_dc_heroes_villains: So watching your Dad die in front of your eyes when you know you can save him but he doesn't want you to is "overly-dramatic"? That was a well-made scene to convey the message from Kent that the world is not ready for him. Not yet, at least.
You obviously don't understand the character of Superman, or the film in general. The movie shows Superman's conflicting sides, his inner torment on being accepted as an alien and when the world is ready to embrace him. This isn't a Superman movie made for Fourth Graders, sorry to dissapoint you. Real life is dark.
Not to say MoS was overly dark, either. There were plenty of lighthearted moments where he felt like classic Superman.
If you think Superman is "Jesus crossed with Uncle Sam", I suggest you stop reviewing Superman movies and learn the charcter. If you want Superman saving cats from trees and being a jolly good Mary-Sue, I suggest you go watch Superman TAS.
@madeinbangladesh: Supe fanboys. I mean it's winning pretty much every poll that it's in.
MAn of Steel wasn't bad, but no way it was great or amazing. And I thought the Supe fanboys would hate the movie, since superman in the movie was nothing like in the comics.
MoS. Sorry haters, but for me its MoS. I don't see many problems withthe script, apart from two drawn out exposition scenes in the middle of the movie which feature two people talking in front of CGI backgrounds for what feels like 5 minutes each.
Also, people who say Supes was nothing like in the comics don't read much modern Superman comics.
Hobbit was horrible for me in the way it tacks on to the book with filler, Pacific Rim bored me to death outside of the three action scenes, with a story so clichee driven, it almost felt like a sports film out of the early 80s. Wolverine was a mess and very disappointing. Why take his healing factor, then give it back and then take it AGAIN in the finale?
Thor was good, but tanked itself with too much goofy humor just like IM3.
