With a current rating of 33% on Rotten Tomatoes, “Suicide Squad” looks like it won’t be the rebound DC Comics and Warner Bros. were hoping for following the reaction to their last superhero movie, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
And though it’s likely the movie will have a huge opening this weekend that breaks the record for biggest August opening ever (currently held by “Guardians of the Galaxy” with $94.3 million), some fans still don’t want the negativity from critics infecting their experience.
A petition to shut down the review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes has been created on Change.org. While the petition creator acknowledges that it has no power to actually shut down the site, over 11,000 supporters have signed it as of Wednesday morning. And many of them are quite earnest in their effort.
The petition states:
“We need this site to be shut down because It’s Critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews, Like
1- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016
2- Suicide Squad 2016
and that Affects people’s opinion even if it’s a really great movies”
Comments taking the mission to heart include:
“Thanks for starting this campaign, we are with you…”
“Is there a way to completely shut them ????”
“they give unfair reviews all the time, bias at most times”
