My five year old son wants to go see Man of Steel. I am concerned about two issues:
1. How intense is the violence?
My son is used to DC superheroes via early reader books, Lego Batman 2 video game, and the Batman: Brave and Bold cartoon. He has also seen The Avengers and Captain America movies and did all right with those. I think he can handle buildings getting knocked down and stuff like that where it doesn't show blood or anguish. I have heard that Superman breaks Zod's neck. Is that graphically portrayed?
2. Does it seem like a long movie for a kid?
He made it through Epic the other day no problem at all, but I don't want him squirming, bouncing, or trying to run around at a movie where a bunch of adults are at. I'm the kind of parent who will take him out even it means I miss the last 45 minutes of the show.
p.s. Is the 3-D worth the premium? I generally don't think 3-D adds that much, especially when it's not shot in 3-D.
