So it's pretty much the same story as BvS.

Rotten Squad

Well, at this point it would be lucky to get MOS numbers. So much for using Batman and Joker to prop franchises and I'm kinda glad Leto's Joker is getting the worst response, between that and The Killing Joke it's time to focus on other Batman villains.

I am shocked TBH. I really thought this film was gonna be fresh and unite fans. I am hearing the characters are good, but the story makes 0 sense.

Still watching it. BvS was okay, but yeah not a good movie (the ultimate cut was good enough, but god damn was it long). X-men apocalypse was amazing, and it had a rotten score, so still watching it.

Yeah, I'm shocked that someone actually thought that could pass as a plot.

I really thought this movie would be receives well by critics. How many critic reviews has Rotten Tomatoes based their score on? I don't have a PC right now and for some reason I can't see how many reviews there are from critics on Rotten Tomaotes on my phone.

Regardless, the embargo just got put down, let's wait for some few days and see how it turns out.

So consensus seems to be that:

Deadshot is good, the show stealer apparently.

Waller is good

Harley is good, some are saying that she is amazing but others are saying that she isn't particularly special. Personally I think Robbie is a mediocre actress with almost zero charisma. She aint the next Deadpool no matter what far as I'm concerned, when the dust settles WB will be reevaluating her worth imo.

Croc and Boomer are good but have far too less to do

Diablo is decent

the others are passable

Plot is bad

Villains are bad

Joker is bad

That's something. Not that movie sucks, I don't care about any of that.

That people put so much stock on the view of some thirty something hipsters with glasses with some psuedo smart persona that only care about jokes, click bait titles and random numbers to draw views to their blog so they get another bowl of ramen that week.(See I got bad jokes too) Call me an angry fan or whatever that's fine, it's not the worse thing I've been called. I just think this whole review culture is bogus, so pay me no mind.

I read some reviews that the Joker was good but not enough to make an impact due to lack of screen time and I heard plenty of other critiques that the Joker seemed to be a big part of the film but he had little screen time.

Sort of like everyone else on here, I'm surprised that the early reviews of the film are only a tick more complimentary than BVS. WB's predilection towards universe-building over storytelling (ignoring any sort of balance between the now two weights on the balance scale of major studio comic-book adaptations) is harming each individual film.

That being said, I'll still give the film a shot.

Just went down to 36% with the 25th review added as the Tomatometer currently stands.

How remarkable, perhaps the score will bounce back but as of right now, it's a chilling precedent for the DCEU and WB if all their movies keep opening to negative and sceptical reviews from the critics.

I hate to say it... but this was the one. This was the movie that was going to save the DCEU.

The next one up, Wonder Woman, has some amazing fight scenes, but the plot looks more formulaic than anything since Green Lantern. I don't know if that one will do much better.

Metacritic isn't much better as the score stands, mediocre isn't good enough to salvage the DCEU. Guess we should wait and see more fully though.

Now I am scared sh***less for WW, because it looks like Cap 1 in the trailers....I am scared she is just going to be fighting mostly generic soldiers & tanks...then maybe have a very short fight with whatever god they throw in there....

Surprised to hear you say that tbh. RT usually gets shade thrown at it for being too negative and for being haters. Why does Cinemascore get the gold standard, I'm mostly unaware of them personally.

I doubt that. Anybody can review on Meta and RT, all Cinemascore does is take some surveys.

Because they poll actually living people right after they leave the theater.

CinemaScore® is the industry leader in measuring movie appeal among theatre audiences. Since 1978, CinemaScore has been polling moviegoers at major movie releases on opening night to collect demographic information and calculate a distinctive CinemaScore grade.

https://www.cinemascore.com/

If you look at the list of critics for Metacritic they are mostly "highbrow" critics that take cinema very seriously. RT has a lot of bloggers(closer to normal people) mixed in with "highbrow" critics.

That's the point, that's why Cinemascore is more respected because it's normal people being polled right after they leave the movies.

Cinema Score is more accurate for anticipating the final box office returns. It's scores correspond with the films revenue multipliers. For instance BvS and GL had the same score and more or less the same multiplier, it shows how willing the people who've watched movie to return for another viewing.
