We as Superman fans can forgive this as since we are fans, we are massively invested in this story. So many people watching this film didn't already have that investment though, they needed to be won over by this character, and the one presented was not able to do so.
That is why so many people's reaction to this film was that it was boring. Not because there wasn't enough action, but because there was nothing to care about.
So the kid n teenage clark didn't make the audience to care about the character of clark kent???
