  1. three things:

    A) He said that Klark would change everything, he never said for better or worse.

    B) Zod wasn’t getting used to the atmosphere, he was getting used to the powers that he, as a Kryptonian, also obtained from being exposed to the yellow sun of Earth. I couldn’t say exactly why he mastered them so easily in that one scene, but my best guess is that he was bred to be a soldier, which makes his determination and focus unequaled. also, he’s a psychopathic villain.

    C) It’s been a while since i’ve seen man of steel, but i remember it being alright, pretty good even, but perhaps not a total blockbuster

  2. why didn’t he just fly through the roof? that would have stopped him.

  3. Wait. Why couldn’t Zod use the machine to make krypton somewhere else. Like Mars or something.

  4. That song at the start was catchy as hell.

  5. Guys, music name on 46:17. Pls! I’ve been looking for this so much time and didnt found.

  6. Over an hour long. A bit to long.

  7. First things first, I love the HISHE reference lmao.

    Second, I didn’t hate this film, I didn’t love it. I’m certainly open to the new challenges that the movie put forth, just like Angry Joe, and I even enjoy the ideas greatly. I, too, like the Zod neck-snapping scene. But, like the Critic, I also feel like the characters weren’t the greatest and that the new and open ideas kinda ended too hastily and without any real reflection, which I think is the real issue. It’s not that he killed or that he let so many people die, it’s that those things happened and it almost feels like he didn’t care, which ruins the whole point. Fortunately, however, I still see potential for this if they can take advantage of the setup in the future Superman movies. It would feel much better if, in those future movies, they made a point of using the experiences he gained in this movie to show why he tries to never do anything like it again. Maybe he’ll even fail to do so and that’d be fine, so long as he shows that he learned from it and that it is something he regrets, unlike the end of this movie which seems to kinda blow it off.
