There are two main reasons why it gets so much hate.
1. All the crazy/immature/bandwagon fanboys got on everyone's nerves with hype to where I think a lot of casual fans/moviegoers were a bit burnt out on the film before it was even released.
2. When it comes to fanboys/film geeks on the internet, anything that is getting a lot of praise and or hype will get knocked down and torn apart just so those 'haters' can think they are intelligent because they're not following the 'mindless majority'. It's a BS way of thinking you have high standards/good taste.
