So prescreener reviews are up. 66% on Metacritic. This one was absolutely scathing:

So... Who plans to see it soon, and who plans to wait for HBO release?

on top of being lifeless on screen, the sexist & racially prejudiced lead role opened her mouth and quickly alienated a big chunk of people - me included

not a chance ill support that financially

More Marvel trash, I'll probably watch it eventually, but it'll be as bland and boring as the rest of them.

Watching everyone lose their shit over a nothing comment is hilarious though. Guy above me supports someone who claimed all Mexicans were rapists, but is offended and boycotting a movie because someone said they didn't care if his demographic saw it. The irony of it all, is much more entertaining than the film itself could ever be.

False. He recognized the fact that many of the illegal immigrants were rapists. That isn't calling mexicans as a group rapists.

A 2017 report from Doctors Without Borders said 31.4 percent of women had been sexually abused during their transit through Mexico.

Yeah may see it in 5 years when there’s literally nothing left to watch. I wouldn’t even go if I had a free ticket. It looks fucking dumb.

Brie's comments don't bother me at all and I could care less what she says about white males. With that being said I know how most white males think and she totally fucked up big time. Not only did she hurt her movie but she also incited more hate for the feminist movement. In today's climate you can't say anything controversial without the general public lighting their hair on fire. It is ridiculously stupid but that is our world in 2019.

I might go see it in theaters. Depends on what people I know say about it.

My friend and I will probably go this weekend

As long as it manages to keep me entertained for a couple hours that’s fine with me, I expect very little from these random marvel movies

Sorry, he said most Mexicans coming here are rapist, drug dealers or criminals, which received a "Pants on fire" rating. If you'd like to go into detail about the many other racist, sexist and outright appalling things he's said, we can. It doesn't make it any less comical that you're boycotting a movie over something like this, while supporting someone who says and does exponentially worse shit on a daily basis. You not understanding the hypocrisy of it all, is what allows you to be a supporter of him in the first place.

every illegal alien is a criminal by definition because crossing border illegally is a crime
