Obviously there's going to be negative reviews, but...

...an article like this is so obviously agenda driven. I look forward to reading individual reviews when the embargo expires - but articles like this are a waste of time. The writer seems to knock the film for being lighter fare than LotR and having a lack of female presence. Both of which are inherent to the source material. Then there's a comment about how L.A. critics though the film was overlong and stuffed - when we haven't actually heard from the critics yet (maybe she means the few she's personally spoken to). Then two of the tweets supplied to support this narrative are actually taken out of context from someone who enjoyed the film.

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."
- T.E. Lawrence
