Comments: This was so disappointing. I like the idea of giving Superman a brooding, “Dark Knight” kind of makeover. This is not that! Everyone sucks in this film, Henry Cavill (who I liked in the Tudors), Amy Adams (who is incredibly obnoxious as Lois Lane), and Michael Shannon (who I am a very big fan of). Therefore, I have to blame the director, Zack Snyder. Shame on him! Sorry, I’m ranting, but I just watched Haunted House 1 & 2, so I was really hoping for something better here. I’d go so far as to say Haunted House 1 & 2 were better than this. 2 1/2 hours? Forget it.
