Oh my god! I can't believe you hated it! Rabblerabblerabblerabblerabble! Worst review ever!
... Since you lost the original comment section, I thought I'd help re-populate.
Overall the movie was very dissapointing and bland. the main problem with this movie is that Nolan and schneider try to make Superman a dark character which he's not making him dull and boring, theres no zaininess to the character, the flashbacks are all over the place, the character doesn't learn anything because he's the same person he is at the beginning that he is at the very end, you'd get more character and depth from the original Christopher Reeves the Animated series and the Adventures of Lois and Clarke tv show then this movie. Everything in this movie is really monotoned and grey. None of the characters in the movie have any other dimension to them and none of them have any chemistry with each other. Superman is built up to be the savior "space jesus"( quite literally with the christian symbolism with him flying on a cross etc) that he's not. It was also described to me like getting a really shitty blow job and feeling this could've been so much better if there was allot more effort put into it and if Director zack schneider and david s goyer embraced the zaininess of Superman just like Marvel has embraced the zaininess of their movies with the Avengers making them look bright and heroic. They try to do what Nolan did with Batman and try to grind superman down to reality like they did with batman and it doesn't work Superman is a zainy character that flies FUCKIN GO WITH IT. I'm not gonna see any of the justice league movies seen as their gonna adopt the same "NO JOKES" no zaininess to ANY of their characters. Its amazing Watchmen a much Darker movie based on a dark graphic novel ended up being more funnier then man of steel.
I agree with linkara, know one in man of steel has any other dimension to them, i liked the actors who were selected but none of the actors had any on screen chemistry together or any other dimension to their characters. I don't blame the actors I blame the director zack scheider and FUCKIN david s goyer. theres a great quote i think harrison ford said "You know George you can write this shit but its another thing to act it" I agree with linkara as well with Marvels Avengers, they embraced the zaininess of that world and they managed to make their movies brighter and hopefull. Making superman dark does not work zack scheider and FUCKIN david s goyer from what I understand had the go ahead from warner brothers to do what they want and Man of steel is what they came up with. It works for Batman because its friggin Batman. Goyer and zack schneider are the wrong people to make the justice league movies. I've nothing against Batfleck I actually like the idea of an older Batman but other then him I think the casting choice of Jessie Eisenberg as lex luther is a joke just like the casting of Gal gadot as wonder woman is a joke. There are no dc movies that i'm interested in going to see and I'm not wasting money to support the people who are making movies like this just like I didn't go see Transformers 4 or Michael friggin bays Teenage mutant ninja turtles cause of what michael bay said and David s. goyer said something similar to belitttling fans asking how many people know who Martian Man-hunter is then he asked how many of you have ever been laid. I think with the right writer and right director you can make a great movie but zack schneider and davis s goyer are not. And the actors that are gonna play lex luther wonder woman and the flash in the movies are a joke of a casting
CAPS LOCK ON.
BUTTHURT BUTTHURT BUTTHURT A 7.7 ON IMDB MUST MEAN IT'S GOOD BUTTHURT BUTTHURT BUTTHURT YOU JUST HATE THIS BECAUSE OF WHAT CHRIS NLAN DID TO THE DARK KNIGHT RISES BUTTHURT BUTTHURT BUTTHURT MY NAME IS THE TERMINATOR T-BUTTHURT I HAVE COME TO KILL YOU DAVID GOBBLE. The end.
Do you know what else has a 7.7 on IMDB?
No, seriously, as of 9:37 am EST, Thursday, February 27, 2014, "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure" has a 7.7 out of 10 star approval rating on IMDB.
Obviously, "The Oogieloves" is just as good as "Man of Steel".
Superman represents Truth, Justice, and The American Way. Since you hated this movie, that clearly means that you also hate these things. So tell us Mr. Brad Jones: why DO you hate Truth, Justice, and America? Are you a communist? Or a terrorist? Or a communist terrorist? For shame!
Dude. He is allowed his own opinion. Chill for gods sake. And to be fair, superman was smashing everything in the movie. Is that justice? I don´t want it then.
Sarcasm. Look it up.
I can't believe how much you idiots didn't get this movie.
I am a big superman fan and luckily got a chance to see its early screening and believe me it was a brilliant movie. I had very high expectations from the movie and this film has completely exceeded my expectation. The visual effects and action sequences in the movie are actually the best I have ever seen. It easily overcomes The Avengers in every single way and will for sure emerge as a big blockbuster film at the box office. I don't know why the critics are saying that it focused more on the action than on clark kent's character. It was completely balanced in all ways.
First of all, when you walk into a theater to watch a blockbuster movie like MOS, what do you expect. Anyone who has seen the trailers should pretty much guess the story line, because general Zod's name was mentioned. So for these people to expect great story line completely blow their mind, they are simply asking for way too much. After all, superman's story has been told SO many times, there are certain things you simply can't just change. I think this movie did a great job to add some novelties to the character.
Secondly, for those complain about too much fighting scene, imagine this really happens in a large city like New York or Chicago. You expect Zod will take it easy simply because it's earth? The whole point of this movie is to make it believable, we are not living in a world of 1970's any more. Things have to follow real law of physics if they want to look real. If superman can fly faster than a bullet, this is what he should fly like, not just floating in the air, so people can see how he flies. If you want to do that, go back to see the superman from 1978. That's the year you should have never grow out of. Unfortunately, this is 2013. I hate people give low scores to a film simply because they can without justifying the score while brag about their intelligence. I don't see any of that intelligence showing from their reviews at all.

I really hope you're trolling with a name like that. If so I've gotta commend your effort, that's an intimidating wall of tard text you've got there.

Seriously though, that was a good read. Reminds me of Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

THANK YOU BRAD! THANK YOU *Gets on hands and knees and worships you some more*
Even though I haven't seen Man of Steel, it tastes like a tuna salad sandwich. You are a...dammit. People have called Brad everything. SHIT! Uh....Brad's a martian cannibal who came from Valhalla. Yeah. Totally! Man of Steel is delicious. You are a Tromafan, as am I. So yeah. Go watch Messiah of Evil!
God, this movie was a pile of ass.
No. It's Oogieloves good!
FUCK YOU GUYS!!!!
DO NOT INSULT MY FAVORITE GAME EVER NOSE OR PENIS YOU HAVE DISGRACED IT BY TREATING IT LIKE A JOKE!!!!
I made this (bad) joke back on the old site:
Will the sequel for Man of Steel called Man of Stole?
I release my booger jism... bism... in your ear.
Very nice post. Thank you for sharing
i couldn't agree with you guys more. i thought i was taking crazy pills at my theater when everyone else cheered. this movie sucked, superman returns was better than this and i thought that was wildly mediocre.
LMAO! My boyfriend and I went and saw this...I have to say, I agree with every point made here. I am a fan of the original movies with Christopher Reeve, most of all 1 and 2. After BF and I walked out of the theatre the complaints started flying...we sounded a lot like you guys, lol! I thought this movie was an insult to the Superman character and pretty much every other character in the universe. We agreed if we need our Superman fix we'll pop in one of the first 4. Nice rant guys;-)
Overall the movie was very dissapointing wooden and bland. the main problem with this movie is that Nolan and schneider try to make Superman a dark character which he's not making him dull and boring, Its almost as if both Nolan and schneider were fighting over this film. Theres no zaininess to the character, the flashbacks are all over the place, the character doesn't learn anything because he's the same person he is at the beginning that he is at the very end, you'd get more character and depth from the original Christopher Reeves the Animated series and the Adventures of Lois and Clarke tv show then this movie.

I'm not gonna see any of the justice league movies seen as their gonna adopt the same "NO JOKES" no zaininess to ANY of their characters. Its amazing Watchmen a much Darker movie based on a dark graphic novel ended up being more funnier then man of steel. And I dont care if people contradict me and say it made allot of money the Transformers movies made allot of money and each one of those movies were terrible, they were just Michael Bay making the same movie over and over and not giving a shit, he even said at the promotion for the movie in a smug arrogant way that he doesnt care what people think cause your gonna see the movie anyway what a dick. Even David S. Goyer the writer belitted fans asking them in the audience how many people know who martian manhunter his and how many of you have ever been laid. the only thing I liked about the movie was the casting, that doesnt save this movie. I'm reminded by a quote Harrison Ford said to George Lucas "you know George you can write this shit but its another thing to act it" and it applies here cause Zack Schneider does not know how to talk to actors. I'll finnish on this point I wont be going to see any of the Dc lineup movies because the wrong people are behind making these film. Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luther and Gal Gadot as Wonderwoman and Ezri Miller as the Flash is a joke of a cast. Look at tv shows like Arrow and the Flash where warner brothers are getting those characters right, like on the flash embracing the zainines of the character and his world and on Arrow. Writers from those tv shows seem to be doing a much better job establishing the characters in tv then the directors and writers in film.
Superman is a high moral character. He's a straight arrow and that's his personality. It's why he has so much conflict with other characters in the comic book universe from time to time. You can't turn a character like that into a "Dark Knight" like image like with Batman it doesn't work and that's why this movie doesn't work.
Dave asking Brian if he wanted to play "nose or penis", the start of a love affair for the ages.
Your comparison to Bad Boys 2 is kinda amusing to me since both movies share the same cinematographer.
