    It was awesome. The only person who didn’t seem to quite fit was Amy Adams. Keep Kate Bosworth. Otherwise The action was way better than the 2006 version. Superman actually got to fight! And what a fight it was!! I was curious how they could show someone who is darn near invincible, fight others who are the same? Question was answered!
