Yeah, he's hot (and looks a lot like Christopher Reeve), but the good points of this film (including some dialogue and comic bits-in-passing) are lost in the mayhem of the CGI World Wreckers.
PS: the school-boy scatology was totally unnecessary for the story, and use of foul language in films targeted at kids is never acceptable. Despite current opinion, there are still subsets of youth that don't use it and parents that don't tolerate it. ( )

An alien raised on Earth defends his adopted world.

I can see how if you want to make a long-lasting franchise that takes itself seriously, you probably feel the need to do the whole origin thing to establish exactly what's what in this version. But why do I want to watch it? I'm looking forward to the sequel, though. This movie doesn't do much for me, and I suspect the action would be mind-numbingly dull on a re-watch. But there's a lot of potential. It establishes a great cast and setting for an epic DC Comics movie franchise, and that is exciting.
