Where is the dissatisfaction coming from? Or is the dissatisfaction from the so-called vocal minority? Must be more than that.
I'm not convinced it isn't just a vocal minority. How many different polls and websites do we need to link to showing that many, many more people enjoyed Star Trek Into Darkness than didn't? The poll in this forum shows 56% of those who voted rated the film an 'A-' or better. Rotten Tomatoes shows that 241,000 plus people have rated the film an average of 4.3/5.

It was the #1 home video release last week.

So where exactly are these hordes of unhappy people?
Yeah, everyone loves this movie and no one is unhappy.

It got 72% on Metacritic.

So there's no problem here. Move along.
Actually that's the critic rating you're referencing...

1,038 users averaged out to a 7.9 rating. Which is close to the 4.3/5 given on Rotten Tomatoes. Of course, 241,000 people is a slightly larger sample size than 1,038.

So my question still stands: where are these hordes of people who hate the movie?
