Critic Review - Associated Press

This is the problem when you're an exceptional, visionary filmmaker. When you give people something extraordinary, they expect it every time. Anything short of that feels like a letdown.

Yea, she sounds like a disappointed fanboy whose expectations were so high, anything less than perfect is a let down. But that still should not garner a rotten review. If a movie is still really good, that should be a fresh score my friend.

I have a feeling there's gonna be a lot of critics who hate it just because they're trolls.

Did anybody actually read the review? Those sound like legitimate complaints.

No, she thinks Battleship is fresh. Yet this movie isn't?

Not once in that review did she compare Batman to Battleship. She judged it on its own merits and didn't really like it that much.

I am watching this movie - NO MATTER WHAT. But as far as reviews go, I will wait for Roger Ebert's. I think he is more or less universally liked for his reviews; probably because he critiques movies keeping genre, audience, etc., in mind.

This is the problem when you're a moron. when people give you something extraordinary, they expect you to understand the vision.

I would agree, EXCEPT that you were the fanboy troll who went onto every single negative review of Spiderman, complaining that said critics did not like your god.

Not a bad review, but shouldn't she stick to romantic comedies?

She gives amazing spiderrman,savages,snow white,ted and other worse things fresh review but mocks dark knight rises..she is not geniune guys..she is a fame seeker who wants attention. I bet she is a bigger letdown in her real life then she thinks dark knight rises is..

I liked Amazing Spider-Man and Ted. I also liked The Dark Knight and Batman Begins. Her review says that the movie has way too many characters and plot points, which makes it hard to care about any of the new characters. Sounds a lot like Spider-Man 3 to me. Not saying this will be a bad movie at all. I'm just saying that most people can't follow a movie that has too much going on. She seems to know what she's talking about and she isn't attacking or mocking the movie in any way. She just didn't like it because the story isn't as focused as the last two.

Let me rephrase that. Most people find it hard to care about what's going on if each plot point isn't equally compelling. Especially considering most are new characters that might not get as much screen time as they need.

I want to say first and for most, I do not agree with this review. That said, unlike the other negative review, I can respect hers because its something she was disappointed in after being fed up with all the hype. I can live with that, it happens to a lot of people.

We all going to expect this film to have a few negative reviews here and that, some being valid takes of their opinions, and others that are obviously trolling.

At any rate, it's still well above 90%. It's going to rock.
