It's also worth noting that MOS was not universally rejected by the critics themselves. The film evoked a polarized reaction, yielding "mixed" reviews. So, to suggest that "well trained experts" largely had a problem with it isn't entirely true; some of them found MOS to be quite entertaining. Here's a quote from MaryAnn Johanson, (a critic who, despite having serious problems with both Zack Snyder's 300 and Sucker Punch), gave MOS a glowing review): "Towers with ambition, swelled by sweeping philosophies about power and presence on scales both planetary and personal, beautifully balanced by a wellspring of wry tragedy." Additional positive reviews are out there as well.
