That doesn't mean I think Origins would automatically be amazing if Rothman stepped back and just let Hood do his thing (if indeed Rothman actually meddled).
If there is someone to blame, it should be the entire crew and the people who had a say in making the film. I just think Rothman gets too much blame, he was also around when X1, X2 and FC came out. But no one is acknowledging his input (if he had any) in those films.
