^ My problem isn't that he didn't save all the people, it's that he was way more focused on battling Zod than saving people. Yes, stopping Zod would end the threat in its tracks but I can't imagine any other incarnation of Superman (be it movies, TV or comic books) where he's more interested in fighting a foe than helping people in immediate danger.
Despite that complaint, I still like the movie.
Oh, I see what you mean, but a person would have to give it that Zod's attack on him was pretty relentless. There didn't seem to be any breaks where he could have have managed to save people while fending off the attack. Also, Zod was aware that S had a soft spot when it came to humans. I could imagine that if S had broken off the fight to save someone Zod would have used that opportunity to kill 10 for every one person that was saved.
Frankly, one of the creepy things in the film was Pa Kent's talk with S after the bus rescue. I thought that was out of character as I could not imagine him ever saying to S that maybe he should have let a bus load of kids die in order to conceal his abilities. Pa Kent was always a standup guy in the comics and always expected him to do what was right, not convenient.
Overall, I liked this film because the threat felt real, not comical like in most of the previous films, including the first one with its ludicrous conclusion.
