That’s a question that Washington Free Beacon managing editor Sonny Bunch and I take on in the latest installment of my Bloggingheads show, Critic Proof, which also discusses Man Of Steel more generally, as well as mass-casualty sequences in this summer’s action movies, and the question of how to get more movies made in the $30 million range:

I absolutely understand some of the criticisms of Snyder, particularly with regard to costuming female characters. But I do wonder if his female characters were dressed somewhat differently, or if he hadn’t made such a hallmark of slow-motion action sequences, if we’d be able to see his innovations with action structure and tone more clearly.
