It's not even like it would take long for Superman. He's invincible, and moves fast enough to just smash into the building, snatch her up, and fly her to Hawaii, while Batman asks Alfred to put on some tea.die wrote:Imagine you're Superman... Wouldn't you want to save your own mom rather than leaving it up to the dude who almost killed you?
Batman instead goes to save her, takes a couple minutes to beat up some dudes, then BLOWS A GUY UP WHO IS STANDING INCHES AWAY FROM MARTHA KENT.
Bruce: Hey I am back, why is this asshole cosplaying as the troll from Lord of the RIngs?
Clark: Hey, how's my mom?
Bruce: Oh, she's dead, sorry. I beat the fuck out of 20 guys, but the last guy was wearing a flamethrower (????) right next to her, and I had to blow him up. I was really thinking your mom was invincible like you, and not one of us squishy meat bags. So, who's this hot chick?
Kevin Smith put it well. It's like Snyder read Death of Superman and Dark Knight Returns, and decided he liked those Superman fights, and decided to base the entire movie around them. The rest was just filler that he put hardly any thought into.You would think that a movie of this magnitude, that has been thought about and dreamed about for years would come with an airtight plot.
I really wasn't aware cops went into situations with shotguns. But yeah, his partner was pretty cool about almost eating buckshot.Also, the cop that tried to murder Batman with a shotgun just turned right towards his partner and almost murdered him at point blank range and they were both acting like it happens all the time and HEY, WHAT'S FOR LUNCH?
but yeah, even that chubby hack admitted the movie had no heart (OUTSIDE OF BEN AFFLECK'S ENORMOUS GREAT ACTING HEART, OF COURSE)
He was 1000000000% correct when he said this universe is humourless. No matter what little issues I come up with, whether it be Lois Lane being the ultimate McGuffin, Lex Luthor portraying the wrong DC villain, or the incoherent plot, my major gripe is the universe itself. Nothing is happy. Everything is dark and brooding. If I lived in this Earth, and suddenly you have Superpowered aliens and monsters destroying chunks of cities, I would have eaten a bullet a long time ago.
I don't think Superman smiled or said anything uplifting the whole movie. Instead he threatens to murder more people and pouts.
For most of these movies, he doesn't save anybody except Lois Lane. In fact, the one time he probably shouldn't have been saving people (when he was investigating Bruce Wayne), he instead decides to fly across the world because he happens to see some building on fire in Guatemala? REALLY??? Like he just suddenly remembers, oh shit I save people who aren't named Lois Lane. Don't even get me started on the people begging for their lives on their roof during a flood, as he hovers above them and fucking poses.
