User reviews for this are substantially better than critic reviews so far. I have a feeling this is yet another case of movie critics showing that they are pompous idiots who can't tell a good movie from a bad movie.
User reviews are bullshit, just read some on Metacritic and you'll find out why. Out of the 140 user reviews, only 11 are "mixed". A lot of people just rate it as 10 if they want the movie to have a higher score or 0 if they want the movie to have a lower score. One of the feature reviews is someone saying "I do not understand the critics, although there were a couple of ridiculous moments" and giving it a 10/10. Meaning the person knows the movie has noticeable flaws but still gives it a 10/10.
Honestly, what do you think is more likely?
a) Film critics, adults who have been reviewing movies for a long time and studied to be able to argue and defend their points, and can lose their jobs if they just go crazy and give random grades without justifying them not being able to "tell a good movie from a bad movie" or
b) Users, kids included, who went to see the movie right when it released (and consequentially are most likely fans of the character) and can just give whatever grade they want without any consequences and who don't even have to justify anything, giving high grades just because they're fanboys?
Don't trust critics, they are all purchased, biased, entitled garbage that think they are smarter than us peons.
I can't tell if that's irony or not, but the statement is so absurd that I'm just going to assume that it is, for my sanity's sake.
I don't understand the amount of hate I see directed toward critics in this forum. You know that the only difference between a critic and a normal person is that the critic is trained to defend their point, right? It makes no sense to trust the user reviews but not the critic reviews.
