The new version has its share of disturbing moments, but writer James Gunn and director Zack Snyder have stripped away the social satire of the original and put little in its place.
That is very true.

I find all of that very true in comparison to the original.
You don't have any idea what you're talking about. This film is loaded with criticism of post-9/11 consumer culture! Especially in the wake of marketing campaigns commodifying patriotism after Bush famously endorsed shopping as the appropriate civilian counterpart to military action against terrorism. Critics should figure out what the hell they're talking about before writing-off movies as inconsequentially devoid of social commentary. Read a fucking book.
