Re: Too much action?
The action was incredible.
As far as there being "too much" of it, in terms of screentime and structure, MAN OF STEEL actually has a comparable amount of action to recent superhero movies, including THE AVENGERS.
If people lack the common sense to answer questions they have about it, that's on them. The movie provides enough contextual clues to justify its existence, and it is well executed.
