Madame Web Produced Such A Rotten Tomatoes Score That It Will Be Difficult To Recover From Here…

MOVIE NEWS – S.J. Director Clarkson’s Madame Web currently has the second-worst Tomatometer rating of Sony’s live-action Spider-Verse films.



Sony’s Spider-sense must be tingling today. Now that the embargo has been lifted, critics are already giving their opinions on the Dakota Johnson-led superhero film Madame Web on Rotten Tomatoes. And the latest piece of Sony’s live-action Spider-Verse (Venom movies, Morbius) receives one horrible review after another.

At the time of writing, Madame Web scores only 17% on the Tomatometer with 81 (!) reviews – only Morbius’s 15% rating is worse.

The problem with Madame Web is its blatant disregard for the source material. Cassandra Webb (Johnson) and the film’s villain, Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim), look nothing like their comic book counterparts. In fact, without spoiling anything, Ezekiel is more like a dime-a-dozen serial killer from a terrible B-movie who occasionally lurks around trying to kill Julia (Sydney Sweeney), Mattie (Celeste O’Connor), and Anya (Isabela Merced). Meanwhile, he’s wearing a cheap “evil Spider-man”-like costume.

It is a sad coincidence that S.J. Clarkson’s Madame Web hits theatres on February 14th, as Marvel fans will likely have their hearts broken by Sony’s Spider-Verse debacle on Valentine’s Day.

Before the bad reviews on Rotten Tomatoes hit, Madame Web earned just $39 million in its opening weekend. Now, it looks like those bad numbers may sink even further. There is little chance that you will succeed in beautifying it from here. Some have already declared that the film failed before its official world premiere.

Dakota Johnson insists that Madame Web takes place in a “separate universe”. But it would be more correct to call it an independent film. Without giving away any spoilers, we will see a lot of Spider-Man characters in the movie. Among them is a young Uncle Ben (Adam Scott), who was already revealed in the official trailer. However, fans should not waste their time waiting for the post-credit scenes – there are none!

In any case, we are eagerly waiting to find out: was this movie really as bad as it was announced…
