But hey, maybe that's just me. I just find it odd that what MOS gets criticised for several other movies have been exalted for. I'm just stoked for a decent rendition of a Superman story. Enjoy.
I think that has to do with how certain elements were presented in the movie, in something like Sam Raimi's film over the top can work because that's his tone and anything can happen while in a "grittier" and more "realistic" setting that will not work.
