Critics are generally a lot more patient with movie and can appreciate a slower story if there's substance there.
No offence, but the bolded part is a weak argument. Joker was great in TDK, an integral part of it. But at no point did TDKR try to be TDK. That's the whole point. And a lot of people seem to miss that point, precisely because they're disappointed we didn't get more of the same in TDKR.
