    I reckon Zod saw it as a good way to die - another recurring theme throughout the film. In a sense, he committed suicide, as he pushed Kal who had little choice but to snap his neck.

    Looks as though Mark Strong is the main contender for Lex. Not a bad choice at all.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    What was that pish about evolution that the female baddie came out with? That felt like a giant bone thrown at fundamentalist types. Either that or I'm getting a bit Dawkins-y in my old age.

    The bit where Jor-El said - You can save them, you can save ALL of them - and then he jumped in the air and made a Christ pose for a bit.

    Seriously.
    Fucking. Hell.

    I really don't recall that at all. I remember the scene, but I don't remember seeing that. I did drift off at times though - not asleep, just mentally.

    But yeah, I think I may have laughed as well.
    There was some stuff about him sending his only son to us to teach us how to be better.

    Mrak Strong rumoured to be Snyder's choice for Luthor in the sequel.

    Fassbender would be better, but probably significantly more expensive.
    All rumours are currently nonsense as they don't even have a possible story yet.

    Goyer has a story outline and it's apparently being fast tracked.

    @ZuluHero The comics have always had a massive religious overtone but the film was very in your face about it.

    Anyone think the parts when we see the younger Clark was best?

    I loved the way it was shot and had an old fashioned filter thingie going on.

    ... kind of wish we saw more of his childhood and less skyscrapers collapsing for forty minutes.

    God, I was bored by the time the umpteenth explosion was shown or a building Superman crashed into.

    The Avengers (Assemble) got it spot on because they all had different things to do and banded together towards the end whereas I couldn't make head or tail of what the heck was going on half the time in this.

    I thought Abrams was at the helm for the opening fifteen minutes because the lens flare is actually somehow worse than the recent Star Trek film for heavens sake!

    Went to see it Sunday.

    It's not good.

    There are nice little bits there, but it really takes itself too seriously. Would loved it to be shorter and sunnier.

    It really loses it's way about half way through, too. The fights are actually really tedious, and there's a lot of stuff that takes events out of Superman's hands. Which feels really strange.

    Mostly I'm bored of twenty minute cgi punching and collapsing roller coaster rides. But this seems to be the norm now. Interesting to watch Superman Returns now. Feels like it's from a whole different era.

    On top of that there was the scene in the church with him talking in front of the stained glass window about offering himself for the greater good.

    Just got back from seeing this and I'm a bit at odds what to think of it. The stuff about young supes I really quite liked but the over the top smashy smashy just dragged. Started to remind me of Matrix Revolutions meets Transformers meets Godzilla.

    Just saw Kalel's comments on not enough Superman doing super saving people type things. That was probably my biggest complaint, it's kind of what you're looking for in a superman movie. Right?

    Lois in the chopper - ugh.
    Lois wandering around the ice at night ("it's minus 40 at night") - sigh.
    Going back for a dog in the eye of a twister.... Really?
    How many people must have died in those city smash ups?

    I know you should leave your brain at the door for films of this ilk but jeez.

    Oh and how comes the Wolverine saved people on an oil rig at the start? ;D

    Well, look at it this way. All that property destruction means that Lex an go in with his plan to...

    I just fucking KNOW the sequel will be about fucking real estate.

    Saw it last night, was pretty disappointed. Loud, incoherent, action scenes broken up with childhood flashbacks for 2 hours. Loved the stuff with him growing up, but it was always too short & sweet to make way for more loud, flashy, cookie-cutter CGI action.

    Casting was fine, Zimmer's score was amazing, but there was just way too much spectacle with absolutely nothing meaningful behind it. By the end, my brain was just numb to it.

    A more linear structure, more Superman doing Supermany stuff & less of the Avengers-lite end battle & it would have been a far better film.

    Did anyone else feel completely inadequate as a man after seeing the fine specimen that is Henry Cavill in this?

    I thought it was a bit OTT to be honest. Superman isn't really supposed to be stupidly built, plus he was a bit top heavy. Appreciated the hairy chest mind.

    I mean, thinking about it, how could he ever get that built? His strength is nothing to do with muscles, and there's no weight that he could have built himself up with. I guess he could have been bench pressing mountains or something.

    Maybe he lifts in space?

    Oh right yeah, where he has no powers.

    Of course the lack of gravity is going to be a factor there...

    Maybe he bench presses the moon. He's pretty ripped in the comics isn't he?

    Called it

    Where he has no powers...the sun's rays travel through space.

    Face it, he's dreamy.
