How serious a movie is, should not be parameter for giving out ratings, judge each movie on it's merits, ... not based on what you expected to see on-screen. Impartial evaluation is needed.
Critics with biases are not professional (IMO.), they are more like fanboys.
I have to agree completely take each film on its own merits and throw away the preconceived notion. However with existing characters obviously this isn't completely possible but the we should be a little more flexible about the tone compared to other incarnations and compared to other films.
