Meh, Comments from hard core Marvel fans and Batman purists.

Subjective Opinions.

The movie is in the AFI's top ten movies of 2012 list, that cannot be due to threats.

Am I the only one baffled at how a well received film can attain this reputation on the internet amongst fans and forum users? Are they trying to buck the consensus against the film and brand it as a 'hated'/'terrible' sequel?
Who cares what they think, it was a success commercially and critically.
