Not so much more critical, rather cine lenses have expanded focus scales (with more distance markings) compared to DSLR lenses, which enable you to precisely set the focus with greater ease than the more compressed scales on stills lenses.

Good cine lenses also don't shift focus when zooming, they maintain it.
