Do Reviewers Hate DC Movies? 'Suicide Squad' Splits Critics And Fans
"Suicide Squad" is getting panned by reviewers, but other DC films weren't critically acclaimed and audiences still enjoyed them. So what gives?By Grant Suneson | August 3, 2016
When movie studios take on beloved comic book franchises, it can be difficult to satisfy fans. But when negative reviews for DC’s upcoming film "Suicide Squad" started pouring in, fans started lashing out at reviewers instead.
More specifically, the review site Rotten Tomatoes. Only 31 percent of critics liked the film, and those who did weren't exactly gushing with praise.
So a DC fan made a Change.org petition insisting Rotten Tomatoes be shut down, claiming "[its] critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews."
