WGTC writes: Where Man of Steel did succeed was in modernising the way Superman’s story should look in today’s world – everybody agrees that Zack Snyder absolutely nailed what a Superman film, released in 2013, should look like. Whatever you might think of him as a filmmaker (I’m not a fan, but Watchmen did have some great moments), he certainly didn’t skimp on the spectacle. The story as it was told here seemed to make sense, if you didn’t analyse it too closely.
However, I did have a few problems with the moral implications of some of the themes of the film. I’m not trying to reinterpret Man of Steel in a controversial way; all I want to do is open up a conversation, to allow people to respond in a (hopefully) nice way, and to clarify a few points.
