Tonially the film is very serious, with very little humor at all. Some will find this to be a problem but when you really consider what the story is about, It makes perfect sense to me. My biggest complaints in the film revolve around a script that at times can be ridiculously on the nose and meddling but honestly this is a pretty apparent problem in all blockbusters. The third act is definitely a little clunky compared to the first two thirds of the film but Snyder's skill in directing a mind-blowing action sequence is in full display during the later section. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is not the best superhero film ever made but it's a strong origin story which sets up a more adult-themed Superman whose very human emotionally.
