"Uh oh, a big scary henchman is coming to beat me up. Let me fall like a helpless victim and hopefully someone saves me." Yeah, that made sense to me too. The kid was something that nobody wanted, and very few people liked. Let's let Superman almost die because of a kryptonite shank in the guts, but later have him lift an entire continent made of kryptonite. Yeah, that made sense to me to. Ooh, we should have Lex Luthor wear wigs and have the lamest evil plan ever. Yeah, because I know I'd want to live on a big, dark, and ugly crystal continent too. Yah, the movie was beautifully written, too bad logic wasn't included.
There is still hope

I completely agree.

Lex is an evil real estate tycoon who builds a continent made of rocks! Genius!

Nolan used tons of good Batman comic material to influence Batman Begins and you see how well it turned out. He didn't make a lame distant sequel of a movie that was made nearly 3 decades ago because that doesn't know anything about the character.
