Well, the troubled Clark's childhood. In all honesty it kinda worked for a while. Then, they dropped the ball by having all Smallville knowing about Clark's powers.

And Jonathan's death, which was supposed to be powerful and meaningful but that, to me, was absolutely stupid. You don't have to die in the middle opf absolute chaos to show people Clark's not super-powered (it's not like they were paying attention) and there's no way in the universe Clark would have let Jonathan die, or at the very least not without a damn good reason - I admit I can't think of one - or some damn good obstacle stopping him. Now, if you're doing it anyways, then show us the consequences of it. Pa Kent died to stop his son from showing his powers to the world, next thing we know he's showing his powers to the world by saving people. What happened in between? How come he got over Pa Kent's death? What did it mean to him?

Well... but that's what I think people took as deep.

I liked it that it was a nice well done action movie without trying to be more.

I wasn't too happy with (much like IM2) an Iron Man-less Iron Man movie. Then Mandarin twist came and destroyed whatever joy I was squeezing out of IM3.
