The problem is that director Peter Berg, aided and abetted by Smith and Theron and third banana Jason Bateman, seem to have made it literally, not realizing its out-of-whack tonalities and grotesque plot twists were meant to be played for laughs.
Ladies and gentleman, the sites top critic is a typical overweight AMERICAN; who like most of you, is queasy at the slightest hint of an interracial relationship that goes beyond a buddy movie racist! Good cover Hunter and others, I'm surprised nobody said, "the ending is just as gloomy as Singers Superman, I hate this movie".
Come on guys, the Red Horseman is laughing; at least be honest. This was a great movie in spite of the cursing which I loath. An original twist on a boring introduction of a hero pattern and plot. It was a very good try, though no Franchise.

ok thats just rude to say for one (@ timdigit)... Honestly, i thought you gave a solid review stephen. I'm FUCKING sick of all the the critics on RT who think they're so goddamn clever using puns and analogies instead of giving a straightforward review. I honestly believe they use that method of criticizing for 1. to make themselves seem more intellectual, but more importantly 2. to slightly distort and add a level of ambiguousness to their review so that people can't directly pinpoint flaws in their critique. Its absolutely pathetic. And personally I think it makes them look stupid. Thank you Stephen Hunter for being straightforward.
