Yeah most don't . I've been in high offices and seen them but not skyscrapers. However If people were shown looking I don't recall but that might of been a mistake in direction.

It would be like if in THE DARK KNIGHT, one of the Joker's goons put all his explosives in the wrong hospital or the wrong warehouse when he was threatening Harvey Dent's life. Comic relief has no place in a scene about a mad genius stealing nuclear weapons with intent to use them to cause massive civilian casualties. Not to mention the people assigned to guard the nuclear ****ing weapons are too incompetent to serve as mall security.
I thought Lex was capable , he damn near killed Superman.They were cartoonish though. I guess they just toned it down to appeal to kids.
I didn't think the film had a serious tone really until the end.
