MOS is as unfaithful to the comics as any other superhero movie, and then some. And it was as serious as any of the Nolan bat-movies. And the cheese level was as low as in Nolan's movies as well. The action was good, but it has been so in many other movies.

Acting-wise nothing came close to Al Pacino or, let alone, Marlon Brando.
I feel like your criticizing some fans for 'jumping to conclusions', but everyone does this. James Cameron said Gravity is the best Space film ever made. Lots of people were saying Pacific Rim was this generation's Jurassic Park. Lots of people, ranging from someone like Cameron to an average fan jump to conclusions. Cameron or the fan could be right or wrong, but in the end its just opinion. Im trying to see how many opinions agree or disagree with the poll's question.

Also, the poll is Man of Steel the 'Godfather' of Comic Book films, not the Godfather of movies in general. It doesnt have to have better acting then The Godfather, just better acting then other comic book films, for example.
