By that logic, Superman Returns should have been a smash hit and have a sequel because critics mostly enjoyed it. Fans hated it.
Ain't that the truth ! SR was the worst portrayal of Superman on film, ever,
it makes Superman IV: the Quest for Peace a timeless classic by comparison.
I can't think of the words "Kryptonite Island" without getting pissed off.
While critics can be a useful guideline, it's always up to personal taste
(I actually like the second Ghost Rider film, because Cage is so crazy in it,
I think he should be the next actor to play the Joker,)
I suspect there are Superman purists, who do think Supes should stay in the Silver age. Personally, I loved MOS and was very happy with how Snyder and the gang brought him soaring into the 21st Century.
