Directed by Zach Snyder XXX
Starring (in this scene): Henry Cavill as Superman
For me, though, the greatest flaw of the film is right here, right in the first couple moments of this clip. Forget about the whole “False God” thing, forget about Jesse Joker Eisenberg, forget about “Save Martha!” – just look at those SUPER FAKE EGGS! Look at them!
This film had a budget of over $250 million dollars and these are the fried eggs we get? I mean, are they dog toys? How hard would it have been to find some decent fake eggs? Or even… wait, wait, hear me out… how about just actually frying a couple of real eggs? I’m willing to bet Henry Cavill would be capable of it – look at the cake he made!
Is this supposed to be a symbol of how distracted and disturbed Clark is here that, even with his super senses, he can’t see how super duper fake those eggs are? Or is it a symbol of just how jumbled and jangled a movie this is: a virtual god in human form making overtly fake fried eggs.
I’m going to go with the latter because, seriously, they use this same super fake egg footage twice in the same film. C’mon now.
