DEATH THREATS. Over a review.
Aaaah, reminds me of the good ol' days of death threats over Michael Keaton.

edit - Andrew Urban - rotten - but a bloated one, full of the bling of blockbuster superhero filmmaking, from the giant stunts...

This is the guy who rated Avengers fresh yet it sounds like it could be written for that movie, and he is not the only one. Marshall Fine did the same thing; they just seem like fanboys arbitrarily rating these movies based on their favorite company.
Of course they are. They're reviewers: people giving an opinion. Not any different from what you can find here. What are poeople expecting from them? To tell us what is actually really good? They're just telling us what they think/feel.
