Or do you dislike this so much that nothing short of a total reboot is in order?

    And Doc, as far as your too much theory...I see it to a point. But I thought Avengers was far more guilty of forcing you to check out. I honestly thought all 3 action sequences were different enough in scope and had just enough breath in between them to justify what was basically an action run-on sentence. And for me the boss battle at the end was that OMGWTFBBQ moment you spoke of.

    By the way, OMGWTFBBQ...that's a keeper and the new buzzword for those kind of thingees.


    Nobody has mentioned it really...but wasn't Shannon the definition of OOOOOZing with menace? Is that man even capable of levity? I sincerely doubt it.
    I'd be fine with them continuing this story but there needs to be some changes. I'll go into more detail when we're allowed to. I liked the cast and don't want them to be recast. Remind me to share my beef with the boss battle when the time comes and like Doc said, what preceded it diluted this particular scene.

    A good launching point? No.

    A launching point? Sure, why not?

    I was reading somewhere today that Snyder and the script writer (sorry not into the Hollywood know to remember who it is) really struggled with including everything that was a battle sequence. Even the casual comic story movie goer, like my wife and youngest daughter, thought the battle sequences were too much. But the article from Snyder said they struggled keeping them all in and in the end decided they all had pertinence to tell the story.

    And Shannon ... wow that guy can carry the menacing SOB character over the top! He scares the heck out of me from the screen!

    SPOILERS...ONLY REASON I POSTED WAS FOR THE QUOTE

    Final Thoughts:

    Zack Snyder has said that he has a three hour cut of Man of Steel, and I wouldnít be surprised to learn some of that dramatic breathing room is in that version. In the filmís current state, itís a more than satisfying popcorn movie that couldíve been as incredible as its titular character. Thatís also what makes a followup to Man of Steel all the more exciting. Thereís room for improvement.

    There's a TON of stuff I agree with wholeheartedly in that article. I read it this morning.

    No doubt. But those are just a few. I actually don't see the need to wait at this point. I don't understand why someone who hasn't watched the movie would read this thread.
