    Just a shame the critics gave it bad reviews.

    Were the reviews for the first much better? (I honestly don't remember that well, but I remember most of the ones I read being lukewarm).

    I think the critics will have a lesser effect on that one, cause the causal moviegoers will love it, and thats what counts.

    Does not surprise me. I caught it at a matinee today with my brother. There were only 4 seats left when I got the tickets, and that was an hour before it started.

    Turned out they were pretty good seats.

    No. Not you or any of us here. I meant it can influence casual goers.

    I just got back from an absolutely packed out showing 3 days after it opened, not surprised at all to hear it's doing so well.

    I'd be absolutely astonished if RotF didn't perform better than the first film in the UK, especially its opening; as I recall, the 2007 film didn't even top the box office on opening weekend due to it going head-to-head with The Simpsons Movie, a property which is far more culturally embedded here than Transformers is.

    Then again, I do believe that RotF is a much odder and less accessible film than the original, and I somehow suspect that its word-of-mouth won't be as good. So we'll see what happens.

    Hope it does the same thing here in the US.

    Could this catch up with the awesomeness that was the Dark Knight?

    I agree!

    No one should be influenced by a critic.

    In general, I agree with the sentiment shared here.

    However, influenced is a bit harsh.

    Besides, we shouldn't belittle the opinion of a critic. Every once in a blue moon, they're right, and not only are they right, but they saved us time and money.

    Critics generally don't share the same views we do, but there's always that small chance they will. We shouldn't knock that.
