If youre reading this, its pretty safe to assume that youve seen Man of Steel. There's also a good chance that you were disappointed. I know I was. Hell, just a few months ago I put this film at the top of my list of most anticipated superhero blockbusters for the yearhow embarrassing.
Yes, I believe Man of Steel was nothing more than a reheated turd with a very shiny coat of polish. Of course, Im aware that there are plenty of people out there who, for whatever reason, did enjoy the film. So Ill take a moment to warn you that my severe bitterness about it will sting throughout this article. If you cant handle me insulting Man of Steel, you probably shouldnt read on.
You see the only thing Ive found more embarrassing than admitting I was fooled by the special effects laden trailers that preceded this reboot was actually listening to the characters in this movie speak. The dialogue is bad. And not just Daredevil bad, but Batman & Robin bad. The movie might look incredible on the surface, but it stinks of laziness underneath. David S. Goyer and, shockingly, Chris Nolan just didnt deliver on this screenplay. So Ive compiled a list of the ten lines of dialogue in this film that most irritated me in the cinema. Here they are in all their embarrassing glory, like something out of an over-produced b-movie. Needless to say, spoilers will follow.
