Default Shouldnt we start getting reviews about now?

Normally we start getting reviews about now for this type of movie, even if its just one or two, the only time this hasnt happened has been when the studio's behind certain CB movies have held the movie back from the press because they obviously feared their reaction to it. I hope this isnt what Marvel is doing with IM.

Has anyone seen any reviews yet?

It's WAY too early for the "held back from the Press" argument. That's reserved for the week of release. The press screenings for this probably won't start for another week or two AFAIK.

^No so we should start getting reviews around the 15th/16th i'd say. Not too long to wait. I hope it gets good reviews, as that can only help the movie make more money IMO.

Wait at least another couple of weeks, the first reviews for the Spider-Man movies, Batman Begins, etc, usually start popping up then.

I would imagine, they are preparing to test screen this to audiances to get their feedback, before showing it to critics, I'm just guessing though.

Relax, it's still a month away, most movies don't have reviews popping up until the week it's supposed to be released. There's a decent chance they might still be working on it putting the finishing touches on sound, editing, effects. Also, be glad they aren't test screening the movie, that would only show the studio is a little worried and want a bunch of mindless morons to tell them how the movie should be.

As far as I know(and correct me if I am wrong), studios need to have the film finished by about 2 weeks prior to release in order to give them enough time to make all the prints and ship them to the theaters in time for release. That being the case, they have at most 2 more weeks to put the finishing touches on the film. However it is by around tax day is how it's always going to be in theatrical release. Post production should be complete by around April 15th.

The press junket for the film isn't until one week before the release date.

Frankly speaking this looks more like a fanboys movie and not critics movie.

I mean geeks will eat this up and rave about it just like they did for transformers but critically I expect it to get same level of reviews as transformers like 50-60%. Maximum I see it getting is 70%.

I for one don't care about reviews. I know movies that have got horrible reviews but i liked them a lot.
