Man Of Steel is such an omnishambles that it is difficult to ascertain what Zack Snyder was actually attempting to achieve... If Snyder set out to make a serious and brooding Dark Knight-style superhero film, then he has failed spectacularly as Man Of Steel has a total absence of character exploration, interest in a believable villain or real, live-action jeopardy

After some notable successes in the 1990s ... studios seemed to lose their nerve when it came to delivering big budget bonanzas.
