So yes, MOS handled it's climax much better. Oh and there were actual consequences to that battle, unlike in TDW.
Well I don't want to turn this into a Man of Steel bashing thread but I pretty much disagree with everything you just said.

Maybe you're just older than me or we read different stuff.
That could be. I haven't actually timed it myself but it certainly felt like 20 minutes at least. I own the movie so at some point I'll reassess but I find the enjoyment of that film diminishes with repeat viewings. In my mind all Zack Snyder accomplished is give us the 4th best Superman film ever made. Snyder got the character of Superman so wrong that I'm not really looking forward to Batman vs. Superman that much.

Well I don't know how old you are. I'm 40 and was reading comics in the 80's but I've read comics dating all the way back into the early 60's during the Silver/Marvel age through the 70's. I've even read a lot of Golden Age stuff too. I got out of comics in the 90s and started reading again around 2011. Some comics are good. Some are crap. The newer stuff is hit or miss to me. Everybody's tastes are different that's for sure.
