Justice League Rotten Tomatoes Score Is In!

Justice League Rotten Tomatoes Score Is In!

"Justice League" stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill and unites Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and other superheroes in the DC universe. Mashable pointed out that there's a direct correlation between restrictive embargoes and poor critic scores on Rotten Tomatoes, even suggesting they expected the film to score just 33 percent.

Either a "fresh" or a "rotten" Tomatometer score comes from Rotten Tomatoes boiling down hundreds of reviews into a single number. It's what they do!

It's also worth noting that Warner Bros. - the studio behind Justice League - also holds a minority stake in Fandango, which in turn owns Rotten Tomatoes.

Drama, as it so often does, ensued.

Justice League opened tonight with advanced screenings, and I caught one earlier tonight and loved the movie! Plus, there's now no critics consensus on Justice League's Rotten Tomatoes page, so it looks like they're giving it some special treatment.

Rotten Tomatoes bills itself as "the leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews from professional critics" on its company website. As The Hollywood Reporter noted, "responses got more positive as reviewers got nerdier". Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.

That would put it right in the middle of the road in terms of Warner Brothers recent DCU movies, with the previous entries ranging from the highs of Wonder Woman (92%), and the all the way down through Man Of Steel (55%), Batman V Superman (27%) and Suicide Squad (26%). Justice League is now tracking for an opening weekend of $110 million. Of course, the film's rating on the website could impact the box office collections majorly but it also raised eyebrows and speculations that the movie has a negative ranking on the site.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie now has a 40 percent rating from professional critics.

Polygon: There are good, cute and amusing moments that the editing team should be applauded for, but there aren't enough to distract from the attractive, chaotic mess that Justice League ends up being.

Justice League is likely to be another divisive film.

Justice League officially hits theaters November 17.

So, in summation, critics reviews are useful, but more likely to help a great, tiny movie to get attention, rather than stop a awful (or, in this case, mediocre) blockbuster making bank.
