Not trying to start flame here, but:
I think, what you feel, is the director fault, not that much the story. Imho, Blur still lack's very much the direction quality that Digic Pictures and Blizzard posses. Their cinematic's are always full of action, and very rare (or nowhere) there are a scenes of suspense, or metaphor, or whatever that isn't BANG, BUM, TRASH... they need to make some relief, because, after a while, people get bored of constant action.
I don't know what is the reason of that (lack of time, maybe), but I do know that I have folder on my comp named Blur, with almost all their cinematic's, and I can't point my finger at any, and say: This is a really awesome cinematic. Sure, the CG is fine, the action is great, but is it all that one cinematic should offer?
For example, one of the most loved cinematic "Wrath of the Litch King" from Blizzard, if you tell story this way: "Undead prince rise from his ice throne, stick his sword into the ground. Dragon appear, some army of undead cheers when the dragon shows up... and that's it", doesn't sound very impressive. But the way Blizzard directed that cinematic is absolutely brilliant. The way they make small things looks big and important. The sound and suspense.
So, for me, comparing Blur to other studios is like comparing films Alien 1, 2 and 3 with Alien 4. The first 3 are great because of so much horror atmosphere, silence, suspension.. the 4 is almost constant action, and soon you get bored watching it.
