There is a difference between a concept being an allegory, and the execution of the concept being all about the allegory. Singer in 1, 2 and most of 3 spent far too much time on the philosophising, and nowhere near enough time on the "POW! BAM! ZAP!"
Ah, yes, this old plaint again, which completely ignores the budget and special effects realities behind X1, the fact that the very much "spandex-embracing" Batman and Robin was still a fresh memory in people minds, and the fact that the most "out-there" X-movies, X3 and Origins, are also by far the worst.

No, no, do go on, good sir! These complaints are in no way tired, worn, and not terribly applicable to DOFP, considering X1 was first developed over thirteen years ago!
