MORBIUS' Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score Has Been Revealed, And It's A LOT Higher Than The Critics' Verdict

Morbius is now playing in most locations, and it looks like audiences have reacted a lot more positively to the Living Vampire's big-screen debut than critics! Check out the Rotten Tomatoes score here...

Morbius is now playing in most major locations, and even though critics didn't respond particularly well to Sony Pictures' big-screen debut for Jared Leto's Spider-Man baddie (a slight understatement), the initial audience reaction tells a different story.

The Living Vampire's solo outing currently sits at an abysmal 16% on Rotten Tomatoes ("Cursed with uninspired effects, rote performances, and a borderline nonsensical story, this Spidey-adjacent mess is a vein attempt to make Morbius happen"), but the audience score has now been revealed, and it's a significantly higher 64%.

We often see a stark contrast between audiences and critics on the review aggregator, particularly when it comes to comic book/superhero movies. While it might be difficult to believe anyone would consider Morbius a truly great film, sometimes all cinemagoers are looking for is a little mindless entertainment, and we wouldn't be surprised if this latest "SPUMC" movie puts in a better-than-expected performance at the box office when all is said and done.

"One of Marvel's most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil - or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?"

Similar with BvS and vice versa with Captain Marvel. Make of that pattern what you will.

@DrReedRichards - Captain Marvel? That film was verified to be review bombed to hell.

Don't be disingenuous.

If it breaks even... we're getting a sequel lol.

I keep forgetting the majority of the audience isn't us. They're not avid readers or fans.

It doesn't look good, but with that audience score it seems at least watchable, which is more than I expected.

@Pssst - there are people out there who like go see movie for good time sit down and relax forget about real world not be movie critic these are for non comics book readers who don’t. Read and buy comics can’t tell you how many conversations I had with aunt and cousin yeah this happen in movie comics did it first , in cartoon series transformers prime unicron lived inside earth years later bay decide do same thing with last knight with unicron told my cousin happen in cartoon first .,

Not a lot of people see movies that read comics watch cartoons they like live action stuff they introduced to these characters from movies I tell people on tf2005 all time if bay didn’t make transformers movies those fans be still talking about comics, toys , statues, video games bay did what no cartoon toys could have done ever make transformers popular all over again took new fans who never like transformers became transformers fans thanks to bay fans don’t get comments fro cashier’s aren’t you little old to be buying kids toys that are buying transformer toys for them self not anymore thanks to bay half them refuse see it that way thankful what he’s done

Other people such as my mangager who want to see this movie she’s fan of leto that’s her reason for seeing this transformer examples made this longer than I intended

@bobevanz @thewalkingcuban - Did you see it? I took my daughter this afternoon. It was fine. Not GREAT, but not nearly as bad as the reviews have made it out to be. I wasn’t mad I spent money to see it in the theater. Course, I had a couple Long Islands while I was at it lol. I will say the after credit scenes don’t make much sense. But they put both of them up pretty quickly, so at least I didn’t have to sit through the very end of them. Which was great, cuz I was ready for a nap! Lol

The cgi was ass, they used the same opening and closing credit sequence, the score was non existent, the writing was third grade level bad, and the after credits... WTF. Also fake Fred Armisen lol. Also I went with four other people, two of us hated it and the other three didn't hate it. I guess the audience score has some merit

There is a lot of shitposting surrounding this movie, movie just came out, 99% of people rating it havent seen it yet.
BigPhilbowski
BigPhilbowski - 4/1/2022, 8:55 AM
@TheHumanSpider2 - wrong. The ratings are verified. As in they needed to show proof of buying a ticket when posting the review
TheHumanSpider2
TheHumanSpider2 - 4/1/2022, 9:22 AM
@BigPhilbowski - There are two type of audience scores, one verified, and one general (the 64% comes from verified reviews, though)

I didn’t hate it. I liked it significantly more than Venom 2 but less than the first Venom. So definitely not top tier superhero material. Like Venom I thought by far the best part of the movie was Morbius himself. I liked Jared Leto in the role. I liked the look. So I’m not against seeing more of him. But Sony’s crusade to make a Sinister Six movie happen is the stupidest most boneheaded thing I’ve seen since killing a certain big name superhero in his second movie.

Grace Randolph out here giving Moon Knight episode 1 a rotten review for being "Boring and sloppy" but then went and gave Morbius a Fresh review.

She definitely does it on purpose

@JakeyChappers - She has zero credibility.

Probably because it's WAY BETTER than the so-called critics say!
I DON'T BELIEVE the negative and can't wait to see it for myself!

Any time there's a substantial gap between the critic & audience scores (in either direction), I find the quality of the movie to be almost exactly right in the middle of those 2 scores. Almost every single time that feels about right. I have a feeling that will be the case here as well.

First non-MCU movie I am undecided on whether to see it or not. Maybe later.
