The Good Dinosaur

In Man of Steel, Clark Kent’s (Henry Cavill) father gives up his own life so his son can continue to lead a private existence, away from everybody who would consider super powers to be something worthy of attention. It the right hands, this scene would be very effective, as it shows the lengths a parent is willing to go through to protect a child, which would in turn be a great example for Superman to follow, when he eventually decides to don the red cape.
Unfortunately, as it stands it doesn’t really work, and the death comes off as very, very idiotic. So idiotic in fact that I believed I was never going to see another similar death that was as stupid as that one.

Enter The Good Dinosaur.
