The only issue I had with this Alfred is he seemed a little young. He almost seemed more like an older brother or old Army buddy of Bruce's than a father or mentor figure.
That's part of what makes it pandering. They don't want Alfred because he's an older man who does chores around the house-- he must be re-imagined as a younger man of action!
A legitimate artistic choice.
The fact that it doesn't conform to the image of Alfred you have from some of the comics is irrelevant. So what if it doesn't conform? You're acting as if this choice....what's the cliche? 'raped your childhood'.
