The Dark Knight Rises-Negative Reviews

Talk about being so insecure and so vein that one actually threatens someone else with death threats because of differing views. I mean sure The Dark Knight Rises is a cool movie, but to threaten someone with death threats shows how some people live an empty life.

When it came to posting first reviews of “The Dark Knight Rises” on the aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, editor-in-chief Matt Atchity says he and his staff were prepared for the worst: “…I knew full well that when the first negative review came in, the reviewer would get pasted in the comments,” he wrote in a statement.

Atchity and his staff decided to temporarily disable comments on Rotten Tomatoes’ “TDKR” page after death threats — directed at a reviewer who panned the much anticipated film — were made.
The threats were initially directed at the first negative review that was posted on the page — written by Marshall Fine — who we noted as a dissenting voice earlier this week in our reviews roundup.
