Top Ten Movies That Critics Hated More Than The Lone Ranger (But Which Succeeded Anyways)

A lot of speculation circles around whether or not bad critic reviews can lead to a failed blockbuster film.

So it started this week, when actors Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski started on American critics for their treatment of The Lone Ranger, claiming that the media was "gunning for" the ever since news of the budget woes were publicized, saying that critics were "reviewing the budget" instead of the movie, and that critics had made up their minds about the film as soon as they heard that Depp, Verbinski and Bruckheimer were working on it together, and that the movie didn't get the love that it should have because it was "original". Then future Transformers 4 star Mark Wahlberg claimed that the media is now "targeting" blockbusters, while also pointing a finger at the studios for spending too much money on effects-driven films that "pull the wool over the audience's eyes."

While critics reviews are definitely a factor in how a film does in the box office, they do not guarantee the film will do really well or really badly.
