All Star Superman Falls Flat, but Still Manages a Decent Story

*Spoiler Alert!*This movie was not the riveting action adventure I was expecting. This was more of a slow-paced tragedy to be honest. Superman tying up loose ends in his life and fighting off just about any bad guy the writers could think of to keep things interesting. About the violence, I found that the scene in the prison with Lex Luthor shooting, then kicking, and BEATing an already defeated monster was the worst yet, not the electric chair (I mean he was BEYOND brutal on that creature). Alas, by the end of the film you will get tired of Superman passing out and looking about ready to die, but it might still bring you to tears at the end of it. Maybe.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
