TDKR: Negative Reviews Angrily Slammed By Fans
Much like with The Avengers a while back, fans who have seen the few negative reviews for Chris Nolan's final Bat-flick have retaliated...very harshly. Read on after the jump for some snippets of what was said.
A couple of spoiler-free yet very opinionated reviews of The Dark Knight Rises have hit, and not every one of them is positive of course. Certain fans however, furiously responded to these few negative reviews that offered a side of things they obviously didn't want to hear..and they haven't even seen the movie for themselves yet!
Christy Lemire, of the Associated Press, gave the movie two stars, mildly noting that it felt like a “letdown” from an “exceptional, visionary” filmmaker like Christopher Nolan. That brought 495 comments at last count, of which “I hope you die” was one of the most printable.
Marshall Fine, who reviews for the Star and his own website, Hollywood & Fine, also didn’t like the film. No surprise there (he wasn’t a fan of “The Dark Knight” either) but his review – which compared the movie to a bad “Transformers” sequel -- brought 852 comments, and so many slams to his own site it briefly shut it down. (Rotten Tomatoes then removed the link.)
Obviously some people aren't so tolerant of other's opinions these days. Personally, I could care less what someone thinks of a film that I like or am interested in seeing. I'm going to see it regardless, but that doesn't mean I would shoot threats and insults just because a film I like gets a bad review. We'll just see how the things pan out once TDKR is released. Just a few more days left...
The Dark Knight Rises is directed by Christopher Nolan(The Prestige, Inception) and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway. The film will be unleashed upon audiences on the 20th of this month.
