Justice League's Rotten Tomatoes score finally revealed

Adjust Comment Print

It's important to note - as Rotten Tomatoes becomes increasingly popular - that the percentage it gives isn't a grade of the film's quality, but rather the percentage of critics who gave it a good review. This means that of all the critics that submitted their reviews to the site by 3 PM yesterday (which is an unknown number), only 43 percent of them would recommend the film. Expecting to match or exceed the 92 percent of Wonder Woman might have been setting the bar too high, but surely diehard fans of this DC slate of films wanted something north of 50 percent. While the DC universe has a pretty loyal fan base, "Justice League's" predecessor, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" pulled in abysmal reviews from critics that earned it a "rotten" 27 percent rating. People like the now-disgraced director Brett Ratner argued that the movie review aggregator is "destroying the film industry", while others pointed out that there appears to be no correlation between a low rating on Rotten Tomatoes and box office failure. This indicating to some that WB didn't want the score getting out there and influencing audience's not to see the movie.

The film's Rotten Tomatoes score was being held back until release day, and now that it's out in some countries, you can now see the official score on the site's Justice League page. You can read our reviews of Justice League here and here. But Rotten Tomatoes claims there's nothing fishy happening, telling THR that "the company is making every attempt to pick a film whose reviews break closest to the air date of 'See It/Skip It'". However, despite the fact that countless critics have put out their extensive thoughts on the project in the form of writing, some fans are still on the lookout for the overall consensus that review aggregating sites offer.

Vox: Watching Warner Bros. pump out superhero flick after superhero flick over the past four years has felt a little like watching your favorite Olympic figure skater with plenty of star potential flub one triple axel after another. Justice League releases on November 17.

For context, Batman v Superman scored a dismal 28% upon its release, so Justice League can take some comfort there. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.
