Holy hostile message board commentators, Batman!!
The Dark Knight Rises is scoring an excellent 86% on Rotten Tomatoes right now, but that's not enough to satisfy the masses!
The 14% of film critics calling TDKR a dud are being criticized, harassed, and even threatened by a vitriolic bunch of backlashing bat-fans!
These dudes and dudettes are, like, more ill-tempered than Christian Bale after someone from the crew ruins a take!!
It's so bad, RT had to suspend commenting on certain critics reviews — for the first time… EVER!!
The movie hasn't even been released but fans with high hopes are unwilling to believe it might be a dud!!
Look, we hope TDKR will be amazeballs but everyone is entitled to an opinion!
Except Michael Keaton! He gets two!
