You've put your finger on what bothered me most about Man of Steel. Superman and his enemies just went at each other, and Superman didn't pay any attention at all to what must have been (at least!) tens of thousands of civilian deaths. Or would anyone like to argue that the multiple skyscrapers that fell to the ground were completely evacuated?

I remember sitting in the theater in horror, wondering who wrote this crap. The Superman I remember reading would have left the villain in a split second to rescue as many people as he could... but Cavill's Superman didn't even seem to notice the civilian deaths. He was too busy punching Zod into the next building. And the next. And the next. It's unavoidable - Superman is as guilty of those deaths as Zod was.

I remember when the dog was saved but not his adoptive father.

I thought that it was so silly that I could never like this movie, no matter what.

It reminds me all these pop corn movies whenever they waste screen time showing the saving of a dog whereas, at the same time, thousands of people are killed off screen.

Independance Day comes to mind.

In a way, Man of Steel is the Independance Day of superhero movies.
