14 and 0 now...I like this quote from Todd McCarthy:

"Big-time Hollywood filmmaking at its most massively accomplished, this last installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy makes everything in the rival Marvel universe look thoroughly silly and childish."

Comes with all fanboy movies. One negative review for The Avengers, a 3/5, has over 500 comments.

It's obvious this movie is going to be a dissapointment.

That review was odd, I'm sure he has legit complaints against the movie but he writes the entire thing prenteiously, like he's above the movie, and fans, and movie goers.

Looking forward to seeing this but find it funny that a reviewer would compare the world of the Dark Knight to the world of the Avengers.

Who really cares if some people don't like TDKR? Why so defensive?

Just as an FYI gang: People are posting "spoilers" in the review comment areas of Rotten Tomatoes (as well as IMDB, natch). Caveat emptor.

"At times, the action is so massive and thunderously clunky that I might as well have been watching one of the Transformers movies". - excerpt from the the first negative review.

The review has 311 comments so far...and the review was posted about two hours ago.
