    So, this was unnecessary. And painful. No plot. No humor. Couldn't finish it.

    The MI series is out doing recent Bond movies easily. I'm actually anticipating the next one. This one is a great combination of action, wit and suspense. Oh, and Rebecca Ferguson is an excellent addition to the cast.

    Overlong, dry and just kinda boring, especially for movie depicting recent history. The acting is decent though I don't care a bit about anyone on screen. I mean I already know how it turns out. It's not even an interesting documentary.

    The climactic assault is often just a dark screen with vague hints of motion to be anything but frustrating - realistic lighting, maybe; bad storytelling, definitely.

    The best thing about the movie is the somber soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Meh. Not a big Superman fan, but this movie wasn't very good. Another Goyer script another bad spectacle of story-telling. I did like Michael Shannen as Zod, and Henry Cavill was good as Clark Kent. Not much of a story, but what is there is told poorly. Mostly an excuse to knocked down buildings.

    I think the film's sentiment is best summed up by this:

    1978: All those things I can do. All those powers. And I couldn't even save him.

    2013: All those things I can do. All those powers. And I *wouldn't* even save him.
