@2:38 - the narrative that audiences liked it, critics did not, I think is generally true if you look at a key point you emphasized. Expensive action scene after high-budget action scene. The violence is titillating. There are people who like the film just because of the energy, violence, action. Same probably goes for the customs, artwork, etc.

The story - and it's themes as they relate to other stories and the world at large - that's something I don't find consumptive audiences put much concern into other than expanding on the elements they liked (fight scenes, technology levels of fighting in one group vs. another, etc).
