Not a Bad DC Flick

This is a fairly decent Superman movie that showcases The Man of Steel as he faces off against Braniac. The film is pretty entertaining because it has some nice fight scenes, Supergirl is in it, and Superman has a really sharp sense of sarcasm too. However, something did seem to be missing. Perhaps the plot was far too simple and predictable. I find that the movie needed more layers and a possible twist to give it a spark. Nevertheless, the film should not disappoint anyone who is a fan of the man from Krypton.

Too much swearing
