Spielberg trades in his usually powerful ideals for an unsettling combination of phony humanism and pandering realism.
"pandering realism"? So depicted reality is pandering to who?

Saying that something is too realistic isn't an arguement, You are nothing less than na´ve.

Kind of like how this critic traded in his review for a series of adjective-paired phrases that ultimately mean nothing at all. "Unsettling combination," "phony humanism" and "pandering realism." This has all the earmarks of a trite, pretentious review that tries harder to sound smart than to actually review the film.
There always has to be that one guy that looks at a brilliant film that has a 90% positive review from critics and poo-poo it just to be contrary. Reviews like this are why people hate critics.
