I said it before and I stick by it. Man Of Steel was a decent superhero movie but as a Superman movie it’s terrible. Zack Snyder doesn’t understand Superman as a character because he goes against the things Snyder believes in this world, if his other movies are any indication. Being a good director doesn’t make him the right fit for every project and when it comes to this one that is most definitely the case.
I bring you Linkara‘s recently posted review for a couple of reasons. One is that he had to fight YouTube’s broken Content ID system to get anything out. You’ll see in the review some of the ridiculous steps he had to take just to get the review out. Another is that so much of what he says mirrors my own thoughts on the movie, though I did add a bunch of my own in the comments, that I’ll copy over here. Finally, with all the work he put into it he deserves as much revenue as he can, and if ad revenue includes embeds like mine I’m happy to help…though someday I’m going to have to do my own review to go over some thoughts that didn’t make it into my comments.
