Now that Man of Steel is out and doing great at the Box Office a lot of people have voiced their opinion. While some people seem to like it, others seem to hate it. And there are those that are still indifferent. Personally I think most of not all of these people are looking at in the wrong light.
There are few things people have gripe about. One of which is Superman killing Zod, the other is, what some people have called "Disaster Porn". And yes, it is understandable why people have a problem with either of those. With Superman, you have a character who goes out of his way to help people. In this movie we see it in the way of Bearded Clark saving oil rig workers who could have already been killed in the explosion; we see it when he, as a young boy, saves his school bus from becoming overwhelmed when it flies off into a river. The problem people have is, this seems to evaporate when the battle starts.
This is my point: This movie does not allow for collateral damage safety. And why should it. Yes, Superman helps people. But in the case of the Smallville attack there is no time. He has to fight Zod, the army, Faora and Nam-Ek the giant Kryptonian.
