Good, but not great. Slow. Long. The amount of ass Superman kicks is quite limited. The number of one-liners he says is zero. The Superman from 1 and 2 actually liked being Superman, but this Superman doesn’t seem to like his job very much. The second half of the movie is mostly messianic shots of Supes silhouetted against the sun, which gets old fast.

I have three kids, which means I don’t get to go to the movies very often. It always irks me when I waste an opportunity on a merely good movie like this one. But now that we’ve got that out of the way, maybe we can actually get a really good movie with this cast and crew next time. One where Superman actually punches somebody.
