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.
Well another thing was WHY were those people standing there Gawking?
I mean Yeah, I get it was like a 9-11 thing where people couldn't grasp the U.S. was being attacked, but it's the fact Supes and Zod had already been through a few buildings and chunks of wall were falling, I'd be at least running.

Responsibility, Duty, Honor these are not
mere virtues to which we must aspire
they're every soldier every King.
