Man of Fail - What is really wrong with the new Man of Steel Superman movie

This review will enlighten your thoughts on the movie a little bit

Recently I went to see Man of Steel and to be honest: I did not like it. Not even enjoyed it.
My hopes were set high when seeing the trailers and reading all the glamorous names starring in it. Although I was hoping that it had a reasonable storyline and some new cool additions to the old Superman franchise, I was left disappointed and here is why (contains minor spoilers):
- The evil General Zod gains super powers once he arrives on Earth, yet he decides to take away a lot of these powers by terraforming Earth into Crypton? Yes, that makes a lot of sense!
- Superman can breath in Space, yet he has problems breathing his own atmosphere and is weakened by that. - The Cryptonians have conquered star systems for 100,000 years, yet they decide to stop this because they run out of resources. And suddenly they lose all their spaceships to leave the dying planet. The movie explains it with these words: "We are bound to our history and may not leave." Yeah right... never heard anything dumber.
- The whole movie is one big action scene that seems like it has been stolen by other movies like Matrix III (the whole battle in and around the skyscrapers). The magnetic liquid metal looks like the robots in Matrix as well. Krypton in the start of the movie kind of looks like Star Wars with flying creatures from Avatar. And the scenes from the early Clark Kent seem to be inspired by X-Men a lot... So one could state that it is Man of Steal. To be honest: The entire second half of the movie is a stupid clash of stupid characters that take stupid actions that maybe look good.
- And of course there is still no explanation as to why nobody recognizes Clark Kent as Superman.
- Btw. the 3D is a joke!

I mean, I did not expect this to be some sort of documentary, but some kind of believable story would have been nice. Is that asking too much from Hollywood nowadays?
