Thought Independence Day pulled off the alien invasion angle better. You could see how it impacted the world, the stakes were higher and I was more emotionally involved. With the world engine attack on Metropolis, Man of Steel seemed to focus more on Superman's "truth, justice and the American way", but even then that didn't come across very strongly or well.
