Why cant you guys just accept that this movie isnt as good as you think it is. When you have that large of an amount of people saying the movie was just okay. Then maybe the movie actually was just okay
@eternal19: of course I am being defensive. When someone picks an altercation with me for no reason other than to throw me under the bus on a public forum, I'm going to defend myself. I was airing my opinion. You know no other way to do that than to be petty and masquerade as some crusading defender of posters. But you're really just a flamer instigating.
You tried to bring up the Dark Knight as if it had any relevance to what I was saying (which it didn't) probably just so you could get into an altercation and call someone a fanboy. After that mishap you probably feel like a fool, so you'll continue (even after this I presume) making yourself look foolish for the sake of not backing down. But whatever, I'll let you have the last word as I'm sure you'd like that. I, on the otherhand, don't care to respond to you anymore. I just don't care to be publicly scolded by some self-righteous internet poster. So I'll leave it at that.
you are the one looking like a fool. What i said was relevant to the comment. You said something and i came up with a counter. now you are just being immature inculting people over the internet. you just proved me correct.
@nightcrawler358: I've seen the movie and i found his views annoyingly conservative, sounds like one of those donner wankers who bashed the movie when it came out
Superman didn't go out of his way to protect people while fighting ..., yet nobody was shown to get hurt other than soldiers who would have been hurt anyways because they were following the fights...
I can't believe people don't realize that Superman had spent years controlling his rage, and not fighting. So now when he is forced to fight, he is letting it all out, not likely thinking strait. In the first fight with Zod he was scared for his mother's life, then the second set of fights, the fighters came to him where he was. The third fight, he didn't pick the location either.
I also remember him telling people to get off the streets!
When Superman fought Doomsday, the final showdown was in the city. There have been plenty of other fights where Superman fought in cities. Sometimes he just can't force the battle to some place safer. The main difference is this Superman is a novice and has yet to learn how to keep his emotions in check in the heat of battle.
Mark ignores the fact that the humans were best suited to take out the machine they did because the device didn't need Superman to operate it. While the device Superman took out, needed brute strength which the humans didn't poses. There was also the big issue of Superman having to take a leap of faith and trust the humans could do it, there being a risk of loss of life is part of that and makes the leap even greater.
I will admit, Superman kissing Lois while people are in trouble was ... horrible! That Kiss didn't need to happen this movie!
Others have pointed that Superman has killed before, in main continuity and in else-worlds (SCCU is an else-world, while we are at it)!
What really gets me is Mark tries to imply millions of people die (when we have no proof) while Superman is off gallivanting, that Superman didn't care about humans while fighting, just because he couldn't/didn't force the battle to safer locations (or didn't turn his head while fighting Zod, the guy threatening global genocide, to make sure everyone else was okay), then tries to use this to support his case against Superman killing Zod to save humans implying some sort of inconsistency.
I agree with everything in this post. But i still enjoyed the movie. I just hope they fix these problems in the next one
