All action and no feeling. Probably had a lot to do with the box office numbers being underwhelming.

I don't have the confidence that Goyer and Snyder will come up with something that is epic. Might be a good summer popcorn action movie but to transcend the movie genre not so much.

I don't want people to say it did better than batman Begins when the budget and marketing of that movie was severely lower. Plus ticket price inflation from 8 years ago, 3D and all these other forms of ticket pricing. (AVX, DBOX, IMAX). If this flops, it's going to destroy any future DC universe on film for a long long time.
The general audience generally liked it for the most part. It was only a flop critically, and I have my own theories as to why that was the case (mainly critics having nostalgic ties to what they believe is Superman and not believing that a Superman story could have more of a serious tone).

MOS had a few story and pacing problems but acting, characterization of the characters, and the meaning/message behind Superman were by no means problems. All of those things were spot on. That being said, I am worried about the story and pacing in the film since not only is Goyer being let loose by himself again but Snyder is joining him as a co-writer.
