Bio not provided
Critics who did not like Man of Steel would like to see Gary
Marshall direct a Superman film. It seems that these critics who are
self-proclaimed masters of the film industry think that there's no joy and no
fun in Man of Steel. Let me prove them wrong by the following facts:
Fun and Joy Moments in Man of Steel (Warning Spoilers)
1.Jor-El almost incapacitating General Zod in
Krypton during the Prologue (Russell Crowe was in Gladiator mode for the
2.Superman fights Faora and the Giant Kryptonian
3.Superman shows enormous strength by flying
through and destroying General Zod’s world engine.
4.Superman fights General Zod in Metropolis.
I understand that the critics were seeking more of Superman
saving people from accidents and a love story between Clark Kent and Lois Lane
but this scenario has been shown already several times in films and television
in the past. What lacks from past adaptations would be the side of Superman
where he fights villains as strong as he is and what would it look like if it
is to be shown in film. This was the demand that people would like to see and
Zack Snyder successfully filled that demand.
If these were not fun and joyful moments then these critics
were looking for Princess Diaries!!!
Imagine what Man of Steel would look like if David Goyer,
Chris Nolan and Zack Snyder followed the fun and joy moments these critics are
looking for. It would be watching Clark Kent being groomed by Julie Andrews.
Too much? Too Big? Were the fight scenes exaggerated? Obviously,
these critics do not know Superman. For your guide, this is how Superman fights
his enemies. They crash to buildings in Metropolis. They engage fast power
haymaker blows. They fly with such incredible speed… And for the very first
time these fight scenes were put to film accurately by Zack Snyder. Have you
seen Superman 2 where Superman (Christopher Reeves) battles General Zod
(Terence Stamp) and the 2 Kryptonians. See how they fly? A bit awkward isn’t
it. It’s a great film though but the point is Visual Effects in Man of Steel
are legit. These improvements are always neglected by critics. They don’t even
know basic sketching. Instead of giving deserved credit to today’s film Visual
Artists, they are being neglected just because of an opinion of an incompetent
critic who fails to appreciate how far Visual Effects today have improved and developed
against visuals in the past.
Too dark? Critics who did not like Man of Steel just don’t
get it. This film showed Superman’s struggles on what it’s like to live, to
grow and be like a human being. Unfortunately, these critics are arrogantly in
denial that all of us go through the same struggles in life. The fun and joy
part of that is how Superman pulled himself up despite the struggles.
Man of Steel is a visually stunning action-packed Superhero
film filled with realistic struggles. It’s not too much, too big nor too dark.
It’s simply the best Superman film adaptation we’ve been all looking forward to
see. And as far as the critics who don’t, “they just need to take a leap of
faith first. The trust part comes later.”
