Rotten Tomatoes Suspends Comments on ‘Dark Knight’

The Web site RottenTomatoes.com has suspended user comments on movie reviews of “The Dark Knight Rises” after commenters reacted harshly to negative reviews of the film and made threatening remarks about the critics who wrote them.

Matt Atchity, the site’s editor-in-chief, said Tuesday it was the first time RottenTomatoes.com has suspended user comments, adding postings about “Dark Knight” reviews would likely be restored by the end of the week. The final film in director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy opens Friday.

Atchity said the job of policing comments about the film became more than his staff could handle. He said it “got to be too much hate based on reactions to reviews of movies that people hadn’t even seen. (AP)
