The review embargo for Justice League lifted earlier this week, but fans have had to wait to find out the film’s “Tomatometer” score (the numerical score given by review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes meant to indicate whether a film is worth seeing or not). Justice League’s score was deliberately held for 24 hours after the reviews came in so that Rotten Tomatoes could hype up the reveal during its Facebook series See It/Skip It. So how did Justice League do?
Yes, Justice League is now certified “Rotten” on Rotten Tomatoes (though as of this writing, it’s unclear how many critical reviews that score is based on, as the rating is not yet live on the official site). For context, 43 percent is considerably better than Batman v Superman’s 27 percent and Suicide Squad’s 26 percent, but a huge step back from this year’s Wonder Woman, which scored an incredible 92 percent score.
Still, DC’s films have continued to perform well at the box office in spite of their unpopularity with critics, so it’s hard to imagine that Justice League’s Tomatometer score will have much impact on how much money it makes.
We had one of the more positive reviews of Justice League out there, giving the film a score of 7.5 out of 10 and thought it was a positive step forward for the DC Extended Universe in spite of its problems.
