It's not meant to be a cinematic masterpiece. It's weird that people get paid to be movie snobs and can't appreciate something for what it is.

I saw a review of that movie and the critic absolutely HATED it. I didn't understand that extreme emotion over something as inconsequential as a movie. But someone else informed me that people from my generation who grew up with those video games, take the movie much more personally. Whatever floats their boat I guess. If they want to get THAT riled up over a silly movie, that's their choice.

Look at critic reviews only when you're going to watch a film as an art, it won't give exact idea but it'd be somewhat clear.
Otherwise go with your gut feelings and opinions of people with similar taste. Films are for entertainment. Each film is targeted at different audience and those critics don't get that. They want some kind of message, emotions or art in every single film. Seriously who goes to watch an all-out action flick with intention of getting some kind of message and emotions.
