The critics were well of with both KA2 (honestly, go see it, its a good sequel) and MOS. I dont think MOS was liked just because of its action either. It had some really good character scene's for me, and it got characters like Superman, Lois, Perry, Ma Kent and Jor-El pretty damn spot on.
I thought the story was emotional at the right points as well. Many people say the action was a little too much in MOS and I am inclined to agree. So no, I dont think people liked MOS just because of the action.
