Suicide Squad opens this Friday, and the embargo on reviews lifted yesterday. And the reviews are… not the greatest. The film stands at 35 percent with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, while fan interest is still at 98 percent, the film is tracking to possibly open to $140 million, and it just broke August records for Fandango ticket pre-sales. Fans and critics disagreeing on a superhero movie is nothing new, but every time it happens, it seems like some butthurt ninnies start screaming “conspiracy.”
This time around, a jokester created a thoroughly tongue-in-cheek petition on Change.org to shut down Rotten Tomatoes because they’re totally to blame when an unconnected mishmash of writers around the world generally don’t rave about something.
