For years, I've read enough critics on the plot, and the mixture of multiple comic stories. Indeed the background information in this movie is plentiful; it borrowed ideas from many DC book that those non-big-fans including myself has to do a lot of researches after watching this movie. And that is probably one negative impression that I could possibly think of. Another one is probably I don't like the characters call Superman god.
The key in this film come to this question: who is the mortal, and who is the immortal? The most impressive scene was shot at the evening party while Clark Ken was looking upon at Bruce Wayne with helpless sight. In the heroic world, Superman is the immortal. Compare with human, he is unbeatable; he lives a much longer life; and he can fly! Batman, However is just a human with armors. On the other hand, in the human society, Bruce Wayne is the immortal. He is rich; he has done social networking well; he had more money and resource than 99% of the population. As Clark Kent, Superman does not have such more money or resource; he works as a journalist and has a girlfriend; that's everyone in the theatre can get. Superman cannot use his power to earn such more money; building wealth is a completely different skill.
Speaking about "save Martha", I don't know why many people laugh. Perhaps they got too used to the M-style non-brainer fights. At lease the screenwriters did not make a new name to one of the moms; yes, the characters share the same names since they were first created; and I think it's total okay to make use of that.
Like most of the DC stories, DC wants audience to put more thinking to the stories. The Superman in this movie is no longer like the one in the first movie. And that development raises this questions: if the Superman really exist in the modern society, where does he find his place? He can fight substantial enemies, but could he win a political debate? He can fly, but can he operate an air company? He is unbeatable to hot or cold weapon, but what if his enemy is monetary or political power? Of course, action fans won't think this far. Again, DC stories are generally not just for act pleasure. If you really think harder, this can be a deep movie to enjoy.
