That's a fair criticism, actually. What the reviewer misses is that that was never the point of this film. The point of this film was to get the crew together and tell that story as a jumping point for a new era of movies.
Now, if the next film doesn't hit on all those points the reviewer mentions, which the writers themselves claim they're hoping to do, I will not only understand this reviewer's pessimism toward the new era, I will likely share it.
That said, I am confident the next film will be the film that reviewer wanted to see this time.
