That is very common with huge films like this. For a number of reasons. Too prevent spoilers from getting out before release or bad buzz to be created.
Then they should do better films. A review embargo... preventing you from voicing your opinion about something... where are we? Nazi-Germany?
It's actually very common - from movies to computer hardware the makers allow the reviews to be written but not published (an converserly the reviewrs are under preasure to make sure it's also set to go when the embargo lifts).

It's not about freedom of speech - it's a commerical arrangement if and the conditions that are placed. If a reviewwe doesn't like the embargo he's free to bitch and moan - just just won't be reviewing the movie.
