It's a bird... It's a plane... Oh No!... It's another Superman Movie

I'm not going to say that the whole new Superman movie, Man of Steel, is boring. The first half is boring; the second half is just stupid. It's not easy to related with Superman because, after all, he's an alien. His conflict is the impact he can cause on us (we're not alone in the universe), but the humanity he's trying to protect during the second part of the movie is portray as a manege during the whole movie (the kids are violent with him, the trunk driver is an asswhole, the soldiers follow him). I know... He's is so good that all those things don't care, he's going to protect us anyway even when our behavior could hurt him, he has to trust us and them save us. Come on! We already have Jesus Christ to make us feel bad about ourselves.

There are a lot of characters without any development that are in danger at one moment but we don't even know their names. Everyone who lives in a city and walk through homeless people everyday knows that you at least have to know the name of someone to, maybe, care a little bit. I could be exaggerating but during the Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) scene with the trapped girl, I was thinking: Morpheous do something for her!!!

And, just to end, how many buildings you have to destroy in a movie to feel something? Maybe just one if you do it right. Not the case.
