Man of Steel ★★½

It was okay. I mean... really, that's basically it. It was okay. Henry Cavill was okay. The script was okay. The directing usually generally averaged out at okay, but got actually good during fight sequences because Zack Snyder can basically be counted on to be good at having people punch each other in the face a lot. Aside from people punching each other well, credit to Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, and especially Antje Traue. Be in more movies, Antje Traure. You're good.

Overall, better than Superman Returns because I was never embarrassed on the movie's behalf, but still mostly competent-but-lifeless. I wish Brandon Routh could have been in this. That dude is so unbelievably unlucky.
