I don't doubt it, but I just wanted to point out that Newspaper film reviewers are the worst reviewers on the planet, well at least in the UK where its just not a proper journalistic job, even if the scores were high I would say the exact same thing! They are just the least professional reviews around. Empire and Total Film are proper reviewers and can be relied upon to give a much fairer and honest review and just come across as if they know what they are talking about.
This is why I give no faith in RT and Metacritic scores, there is no weighting to the credibility of the reviewer. So a persons score is just taken at face value, a professional review means as much as a red top rag review done by someone who doesn't want to be in the job.
