    The other thread has just become completely taken over by spoilers and speculation there is no review talk really going on anymore.

    Someone posted a twitter posting of this guys review last night, and here's the whole thing. Spoiler free.

    EDIT: Folks, post your critic reviews here as they come in. If you've found any that are quite spoilery, use the spoiler tags. Some people just want to get a feel of how the movie is without getting into details and crucial plot elements.

    Yeah, he really didn't really seem to enjoy about the process of filming GL. I don't think it was the right film for him.

    He's a talented filmmaker for sure. And up until that point he had done a "Superhero" film in the Zorro movies so I can see why he'd feel somewhat comfortable in believing he can tackle that genre.

    But he just bit off wayyy more than he could chew and he seemed to realize it early on.

    ^ He should return to Bond if Mendes doesn't want to direct :)

    Yeah, Campbell isn't a bad director. He just wasn't the right fit for GL. But there were also script issues. And I'm pretty sure it wasn't his idea to make the suit all CGI, which is where WAY too much of the money went.

    if you read/listen to Colliders Hans Zimmer interview there are little spoilers in there. so be careful. note- nothing big, just if you are staying truly spoiler free.

    Somebody actually said the movie was ****ing awesome? Where's the guy who said he would frown upon a professional critic talking like that?

    Me.
    And I actually meant if it was in a review. I have the same reaction to that comment as I would to someone on twitter saying they thought the movie was awesome.

    Nice find with the tweets.

    For some reason I think the professional reviews are going to be mixed.

    I wouldn't say mixed, but there are gonna be some who don't like it because of the CGI or too much action since I am seeing tons of "amazing action and lots of action". I think more and more THIS Superman movie was for us! not the critics.
    Still guessing a 85 on RT and probably a 7.6 average rating.

    Haha, one thing I noticed when searching for reaction tweets: most people are acting like "please don't judge me, but I'm actually excited for Man of Steel" and stuff like that.
