I'm going to start of by addressing what was good about the film. Of course, I'm going to start by Hans Zimmer's beautiful, dark, inspirational soundtrack which lead to brilliant Kevin Costner scenes with young Clark. Also, it started of with a bang and a good General Zod. Not good as in good guy or bad guy, but good as a likeable villan, but that's where it everything goes haywire. Well, not there, but after all that. After some great Costner scenes, which to be honest where the best part of this 6/10 movie ( in my opinion ) there was horrible dialogue by David S. Goyer. Lines like "he's kind of hot" just ruined the whole thing for me. Lois was simply a dull character.
The action...the action was ok. Finally, Superman action that is moving at actual Superman pace, BUT it felt a bit... A LOT like Dragon Ball Z, in my opinion. Destroying basically half the city? Seriously? After that happened he just goes to the Daily Planet like nothing ever happened.
Soundtrack... i already said it was amazing, what I haven't said was that it is amazing on its own. During the fight scenes it really didn't fit that well. I don't know if its Zimmer's fault ( of course not). Snyder's or maybe even Superman's fault!
Last but not least, Zod's death. That is all.
Of course, I cannot make something better, but as a film fan and a comic book fan I really wanted to enjoy this and I couldn't :(
This issue was just plain boring. For some reason I knew it was going to be, but I ignored my instinct and bought it just because it was The Joker. Boy, what a waste of 3.99. Hopefully, Kubert does a better job in Damian's story.
@monsterstomp: I think it is still called "The New 52" because of the previous 52 weeks comic volume. I don't know I think you read "The New 52" and you instantly think about that volume. Maybe that's why. Off-topic: what really bothers me about DC comics in the past years is the ads they sometimes put in their covers.
