That's insanely odd..I don't want to be that guy but seriously, this does look a wee bit suspicious.

From what I'm seeing, a lot of reviews haven't been added yet.

Oh, and the WB conspiracy stuff is stupid. X-men First Class and Thor got great reviews.

It is because they got the word out (via Twitter) that Captain America is #Rotten all over the internet and kept it that way for 2 hours before updating their site.

There's at least 18 reviews already.

But RT only has 12...??? And opted to put out the negatives first???

Have they even retweeted the change?

Nope, not yet.

First impressions, hurt.

His review and Drew's are exactly what I needed to read. It's pretty much what I was expecting from this movie.

Mix in some Red Grenadine, some White Rum, and whatever makes an Aqua Velva (Zodiac) Blue.

This. I love Drew and Devin's reviews. Don't always agree with them, but they're thoughtful and well-written with a love for the genre.

Old-Fashioned it is...

Transformers operates in a different market though where quality is not as significant a determinant of box office. If you look at comic book films, not many have made big bucks without being good or following a previous film that was good.

We'll see how this ends up. I think it's safe to say this is not going to be Green Lantern or Fantastic Four rotten, but it's probably not going to be Iron Man 1 or Dark Knight Fresh.

Again I'm hoping for a fresh rating of 60% or better. Alot of the negative reviews have just been "this is nothing but a setup for Avengers"

BTW, I think it was a mistake for Marvel to not have the post credit scene in the critics showing, because in one review I saw someone say "there is no post credit scene". Hopefully they will make it clear by Friday so no one misses out.

I really hope not but it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest...I'd like to think that a week is plenty long enough for people to get that whole 'Harry Potter' nonsense out of their system, but who knows

There's definitely something wrong about that.

Exactly. I know it's ridiculous to say it's a conspiracy, that rotten tomatoes has an agenda against this movie, but still...at the very least it's eyebrow raising.

A very annoying complaint. That being said, it would probably not be so prevalent if Cap was making waves like TDK did.

Believe it or not, I still think this is going to get 80%-90%, it seems that it's pretty much better than Thor in every way other than acting.

/Film also gave it a very positive review.

I hope they added all these reviews by the end of the day.
