"The thing with Superman is that he's supposed to be selfless. His primary concern is saving people's clumsy asses, not who his parents really are. Sure, he cares to a certain extent, but not to the extent that it derails his primary mission of protecting humanity. That's my take on the character."
In Superman I, he spun the WHOLE WORLD around and back in time just because Lois died. Not a perfect move. In Superman II he gave up all his powers for love... not a perfect move. In Superman Returns he LEFT Earth for YEARS...that self-interested prig! And those 3 movies are far better than the trash of III and IV.
you know that Superman may not be his perfect self yet because it is an origin story tho right? So many reviewers whine about his lack of humanity in the movie, but then are criticizing his need to know his own family and history, and the path he takes to get there? Superman is not a perfect gdm character. Do you want the super-good god robot Superman, or the one that learns and has faults and STILL ends up doing good things. doing the right things.
I haven't seen it yet, so who knows if all in all you are correct in its deserving of 2 out of 5 stars. I guess I'll grow my own opinion tomorrow night.
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Superman, being a child of the 80s. I just don't understand the "reasoning" behind many of the negative reviews, because many of them still have many good things to say about it. I'm hoping it lives up to my my fav comic movies:
The Dark Knight
and yeh... the Hobbit made over $1B worldwide, and 85% of RT community loved it. What a big failure that was.
