Really, the most distracting thing during the final fight is that moments earlier we saw a huge area around where the world engine was completely devastated, like someone dropped a nuke on it or something, but during the final fight whenever we saw the city or any people they were going about like business as usual. The fact that there were people at the train station like it was a normal day's commute, and not either completely empty or absolutely packed with refugees, was super out of place.
