Not to sound confrontational, but it didn't bother critics when another comic book movie 'suffered' from those same symptoms. The consensus seems as though MOS should not only be a brilliant movie in its own right, but has to atone for the previously disappointing Superman movies.
But hey, maybe that's just me. I just find it odd that what MOS gets criticised for several other movies have been exalted for. I'm just stoked for a decent rendition of a Superman story. Enjoy.
