That's the thing...we aren't talking about "What's closer to the truth". Its not factual to say its a generic superhero film, and it ain't factual to say its a piece of brilliant cinema. The closest thing to fact is that this movie has had a divisive response among its viewers.

"Casino Royale", "Star Trek", "Amazing Spider Man", "Friday the 13th", "Halloween", etc. Dark is probably not the right word, more like "Serious". Much like reboots before MOS, Any hint of camp of fun has been taken out of the movie, IMO.

It sure as hell dosen't stand out compared to "The Avengers" or "Iron Man 1". At best, its on the same level as the rest of the Marvel films. That's not standing out. That's fitting in, and that's a problem not just with MOS, but with Superman's current status in general.

Your problem is that you have black/white thinking. You assume that if it isn't like TDK in tone, it must be like the Marvel Films. You probably assume that the latter is what people wanted from this film.

Did Goyer himself not describe this as a first contact film? Did this film not include an invasion from alien people?

Once again, you show a narrow view of things. Next you're going to tell me that TDK isnt a crime film because mobsters aren't getting whacked within 20 minutes.






Thats Iron Man, Thor, Spider Man, Captain America etc? I feel you're letting your cynicism go too far.[/QUOTE]
