secretly he didn't like his father
because his dad stole his girlfriend.
Yeah, that really pissed me off. It might not have been so bad if his dad wasn't played by Kevin Costner. That man is the shiz.
his pops told him not to..btw lois lane was not hot in this movie
I agree. Amy Adams was a very poor choice of actress.
yeah, they should of got someone hot to play lois lane
Clark knows that if he used his powers to save his father then people would know that he is more than human and they would try to kill him. Also there is a possibility that even if he used his powers we wouldn't know if his speed was as strong as that later on in the film. No matter how powerful Clark can be he can't save everyone.
For one thing, everyone had their eyes on Johnathan. If Clark had done something, everyone would have seen. Also, it was Clark's first lesson that he can't save everyone.
