Wrong. Actually, most blockbusters are.
One can point to the movies that everybody hates - reviewers and moviegoers alike - as some kind of evidence that reviewers "influence" the audience, but there's no good correlation between the success of these big-budget summer blowouts and reviews at all.
If there were, Michael Bay
would be taking my lunch order at Tastee Diner.
You know what movie has an RT rating lower than the one Man Of Steel
has today? Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
BTW, the most successful film in history had a "Fresh" rating slightly lower than Star Trek Into Darkness.
