For the most part, I was perfectly fine with the movie right up until the fight broke out in Smallville (minus Pa Kent's death). Then it was just all downhill from there. Cheap dialogue is unleashed. The fights don't know when to end. It was a complete mess to me and wreaked of disaster porn. I was exhausted from the experience of watching it, not to mention extremely disappointed given my anticipation of the film.
It worked for the Transformers.
