My friends (that know nothing about Superman) said it was awesome. Honestly, I don't want to see it, because I feel like no matter how good it is, they'll never replace Christopher Reeve.

But that's not to say that I trust Rotten Tomatoes for opinions. After all, they said good things about Lightning thief, which was a sucky movie.

I think Man of Steel has too many Polar Opposite People speaking on it... Ever since Friday all I have been hearing is that either the Film was Overrated and Average at Best or that It was the Best Film Ever... when essentially neither is true. Man of Steel was a Very Good film... but it aint the Best Film Ever... it's really not better than The Avengers or The Dark Knight... but it is Good and it's not overrated.

Obviously everyone has their opinion... but I think people be overreacting too much.

This seems right to me. It was a good film and worth watching but nothing special or groundbreaking.

Leading off the reboot with Superman snapping Zods neck is lame.

45 minutes of super brawling and destruction also amps up the bar for ALL superhero movies and may end up hurting more than just the MOS franchise in the long term. 2/5 rating for me.

WB is not looking to make Avengers money with MOS.. there official statement was that, they were expecting an opening weekend of 80 million usd... looks like the film is going to much better than that.

Yeah, because they accepted so many product placement deals.
Branded products littering the screen at every glance got real obnoxious.

This is pretty true to be honest.

People also forget that critics review films based on how good they are overall, from a very deep standpoint. The average person isn't going to watch Man of Steel and notice issues with the pace, the scene transitions, they probably won't complain about the flashbacks to tell the story, the rushed romance, or how repetitive the dialogue can get. They're just going to sit there, ooh and ahh at the action (which I loved, by the way), and come out thinking the movie was fantastic.

There seems to be a real, almost hipster-like hatred for Marvel films too. I'm sorry but Marvel Studios has shown the world how to do comic book movies. They don't have to be brooding and serious or preachy about their messages, they just have to be good quality entertainment.

honestly i'd rather watch superman four, and batman and robin, continuously, on a loop, for the rest of forever, then watch man of steel or dark knight rises again.

without rifftrax. superman four, is way more, superman, thin this thing.

this has more in common with "bearded idiot".

and that is what it should be called. not superman. just be referred to, as bearded idiot, for now on.

Wow... Just wow...

Whoever wrote that, got the "bearded idiot" thing from an internet reviewer (who are usually even worse than professional critics). I don't mind a negative review of a film I like (though I haven't seen this one yet), but critics seem to be completely missing the point here, especially ones claiming that it's too dark or serious, when that was what we were told it was going to be from the start.

Regarding the Charlie Brooker Transformers quote, in this case he is actually a comedian, and it's pretty much his job to be an asshole. If you don't take him too seriously, he's actually one of the most geek-friendly critics around, and insults himself almost as often.

Yes, I am quite aware of both the source (Superman At the Earth's End) and the reviewer (AT4W) who came up with that term, I was face palming so hard when I read that quote above. Like what KingSaturn said, everyone is saying this is the worst movie ever and the best movie ever simultaneously.

Well thanks for clarifying about he being a comedian than a critic.

I liked Man of Steel, the non-stop action was very...Avengerish to me, and the Avengers did it right. My biggest issue, and it's a nitpick, but I wish Lois was more like her Smallville counterpart. I like a Lois that at least tries to put up a fight.

I enjoyed the movie it was a movie Superman deserved. It wasn't ground breaking for superhero movies on a whole but is was ground breaking for the Superman franchise. I only care about my own opinion on the movie and I say it was really good it was what my favorite superhero really needed to get over the last Superman movie.

It was fine.. It didn't mind that I spent $17 on the tickets... 3 things really pissed me off though.. I'm not even a Supes fan BTW

(SPOILERS COMING)

1.. His freaking S.. Didn't stand for Superman.. They just had to shove some wack ass moral that had nothing to do with the movie .. WTF were they supposed to be hoping for ? That Clark would win ? Just let the S stand for Superman and have Jor-El say "I sent you to Earth to ensure our survival and inspire hope !"

2 the action was fine and dandy.. Even great.. Until Zod and Clark started playing dominos with buildings ! Pointless destruction ! I've never seen so many CGI buildings toppled in my life ! They hurt the city more than they hurt each other ! If they hurt each other at all ! And I know their was at least 500 casualties to that super powered pissing match !

3 for 33 years Clark was on earth.. In that 33 years he mastered his optical and sensory powers.. But had no clue he could fly ! I know it's a rule (kinda) that if Supes has no suit on... He doesn't fly.. But come on.. He never once attempted or even hovered ! I was expecting then to have him at least run fast ! Set up his foot speed so they can have Flash embarrass him in a future movie

4 (bonus round) Those damn glasses !! How can no one recognize him ! He barely even changed his hair ! It was insulting in the comics .. In the Reeve movies.. And now ! Are people that stupid ?? Lol

They didn't come up with the idea for the shield not being a S, just so you know. The concept of the shield not being a 'S' but the Kryptonian symbol for hope stems from Mark Waid's Birthright comic.

Charlie Brooker on people who liked Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.

And that is one of the least terrible examples I can name right now. Some people can't stop being assholes, period.

Wow yeah I read that somewhere before.

Whilst I do dislike Revenge of the Fallen quite a bit I would never ever even dream of calling people idiots or insulting them if they enjoyed it. That takes it too far, way too far. Alot of critics do have that snobbery about them and seem to think they are above everyone and their opinions are more important and are more right than other peoples. I guess we are all guilty of that at times. But there is difference between that and writing articles about it for every film that comes out.

Cant comment on Man of Steel not seen it but it does look pretty good.

tldr; Worst Lois ever. She had all of Lois's lines but delivered none of her personality. Too many flashbacks. Lot of useless shots and scenes. Tbh, Perry moved me more than Superman or Jonothan did. Supes didn't even leave much of an impression on me, come to think of it....

Some things in the film didn't make sense. Best destruction porn. Explosions and destruction everywhere. Even in space. The fights were great. The relationship/plot developement was not. Lois/Supes felt forced. The movie was a bad ride. I'm never trusting Rotten Tomatoes again. Man of Steel was said to be epic, but it was really just the gray/overcast tones + bad sense of coherence.

@imnemothegemini: This has been explained so many times its ridiculous, its not just a pair of glasses Superman changes a lot more than cloths and glasses, he changes his posture and how he carries himself. He also completely changes personality and slightly alters his voice even wears a bigger size clothing than is necessary to make him self appear less fit. I don't know how it goes in the movie but in the comics he makes it look as tho any similarity between him and Superman is coincidental.

Depends if Supes does 'interviews' or not. Most of the time he'd be speeding around, bashing enemies, it might be hard to get a full picture of his face. Also, I'm sure there are people out there who resemble Superman, so even if they noticed Clark, it wouldn't be definitive. And Clark completely conceals himself.

Maybe the general public just assumes that Superman doesn't have another identity? That he's just Superman all the time.

I know where this nostalgia is coming, i have it too, i cant open my hear to no one but him, but i have to let him go, is insane and unhealthy, his actually destroying all he teach to me, all the thing he was and his essence.

I let him go, not becuase i dont love him, but because i do love him, thats the reason why i let him go, he teach me i have to continue with my life and not to live in the past, he teach me that hate was bad, harsh word are bad and being an arrogant ahole with a wrong idea of who i was, it was the worst thing ever.

Rotten Tomatoes destroy his legcay more that this movie, they learn nothing of him and should stop this, if they ever loved him, they have to stop this, they are destroying everything he stand for.

They have the right to bash the movie as much as they wish. If they thought the movie was that bad then they are entitled to their opinion.

@ mrdecepticonleader, when you're supposed to be a respectable, well known review site. You're not supposed to mindlessly bash something for the sake of bashing. I mean if I didn't know any better I'd say a 8 year old Marvel fanboy or DC hater wrote this article...hardly professional, hardly respectable and hardly viable.

Not to mention, most of it if not all is flat out wrong or makes RT look ignorant. Such as the "S" story, obviously these clowns never heard of Birthrite... The movie wasn't bad, even the people I know who weren't fond of it didn't bash it or make such ridiculously, false comparisons or say things like "Reeves would turn in his grave" especially when that was an entirely different era, time for both Superman and movies. These guys are amateurs.

Exactly, when you say dumb things expect to be insulted(in this case most people having a gripe in here with RT) I honestly don't blame them. We actually follow comics, know what needs to be improved not these no name writers who probably don't even read comics much less know stories about Superman. I mean the whole rant on the S should be solid proof of how ignorant these guys are.

@vaeternus, @mrdecepticonleader: Like what mrdecepticonleader said, people are always allowed to like or dislike what they want. Not every comic book fan will love it (like our fellow turoksonofstone) So long as you can respect their opinion without insulting them, its always cool. Honestly, no movie is ever perfect and it will always have flaws.

However that is not the only problem with RT, and its not just about MoS. They are making such overblown hyperbole, making the movie sounds as worse than it actually is. To the point, they compare movie experiences to rape, torture and sodomy. I am not even kidding. I lost the count when I heard "I would rather have [horrible thing being done to me] than watch this movie again". Even if the movie is really that bad, you can't honestly say that is worse than having this disgusting thing happening to you.

Anyway....

That is as well maybe but at the end of the day if they want to make themselves look childish that is on them. It is on them to present a certain reputation of the site. And I also take issue with the respectable part as well. People like that really do not need their egos feeding or their heads getting blown up any bigger. At the end of the day a critics opinion of a film is just as valid as anyone else's, since we are all capable of expressing our views clearly and are capable of critiquing things. Just because they are paid to voice their opinions on certain things does not make it any more valid.

I don't usually check out Rotten Tomatoes. So people are free to check out other reviewing sites instead. Or do what I do and watch You Tube reviews.

Well I know I really enjoyed Avengers it was a great film and I cannot wait till the next one. Not yet seen Man of Steel so I cant comment on how good I think it is.

This Movie does not appear to be a Box office Blockbuster at all. I understand WB was looking to make Avengers money with this film, Will they??

Leading off the reboot with Superman snapping Zods neck is lame.

45 minutes of super brawling and destruction also amps up the bar for ALL superhero movies and may end up hurting more than just the MOS franchise in the long term. 2/5 rating for me.

WB is not looking to make Avengers money with MOS.. there official statement was that, they were expecting an opening weekend of 80 million usd... looks like the film is going to much better than that.

It broke the record for Opening Weekends in June, and had a better opening than any movie that wasnt a sequel other than Hunger Games, but yeah its sort of a flop ;)

It was fine.. It didn't mind that I spent $17 on the tickets... 3 things really pissed me off though.. I'm not even a Supes fan BTW

(SPOILERS COMING)

1.. His freaking S.. Didn't stand for Superman.. They just had to shove some wack ass moral that had nothing to do with the movie .. WTF were they supposed to be hoping for ? That Clark would win ? Just let the S stand for Superman and have Jor-El say "I sent you to Earth to ensure our survival and inspire hope !"

I guess Power Girl's boob window stands for the power of girls then.

Remember girls, if you want to show men your power, wear an outfit that demands power, preferably something that shows a lot of skin, the more skin, the more power!

In the comics it doesn't stand for Superman either, it is both the symbol for the house of El and the Kryptonian symbol of hope which was brought up back in the late 80s when John Byrne was writing Superman.

@pwok21: this. The budget was $225 million why would they lowball they're opening expectations? Avengers is the goal for any hero movie to aspire to.

There are many reasons why I dislike this film.

I thought the film was pretty good. Not amazing, but good.
