At the end of the movie, he just completely loses his mind and becomes a rabid dog. I though his acting was very good and multi-dimensional. I certainly bought him being the supreme commander of the Kryptonian military much more than Terence Stamp (who came across as more of a pompous, arrogant, aristocrat than an actual soldier).
You hit the nail on the head. Stamp indubitably offered a great performance, but if we're talking about the portrayal of a Kryptonian general, Shannon was far more believable in that particular role.
