Good summation of my thoughts and feelings. I would have been more forgiving of the lack of action if I actually liked any of the characters and the actual villain was compelling in some fashion. Adding action to SR would have still yelled a film that I didn't dig.
Hopefully Superman and Lois are charming in this new feature and the villain is compelling to some degree.
