Great movie. A lot less gory than you think you remember after having have watched it, which is an amazing accomplishment. Despite acknowledging that it is well made and a very good movie, not one of my absolute favorites.
Indeed. It's probably actually less gory than the average probablye-procedural TV show of the '90s or maybe even the '80s, much less today.
I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.
