For letting loose, that was an amazing sequence. I'd like to see him let loose against Zod or w/e the big boss is, like that. The rest of the time, I'd like Superman to be methodical and precise with his powers (ala Sherlock Holmes), exercising restraint and compassion against normal human criminals, less so for murderers/super-powered henchmen.
Superman doesn't suffer from small dog syndrome, he doesn't have anything to prove and he isn't motivated by anger. His response should be proportional to the evil he confronts.
When he does let loose, punches, throws, heat vision and high speed flying tackles. Grappling is ok, but no kicking. Karate kicks from Superman doesn't seem right.
