Really? They refused? Why?
You be the judge.
Warning; many spoilers. It'll make more sense too if you have seen it.
(Update. Review finally approved though heavily edited.
'The only setback for me is what's become, sadly, the cliché of characterization. It's evident in almost every film and series now. Even commercials. (Previous attempts at a deeper analysis resulted in rejection. You know the drill).'
This has actually happened to me before on IMDB. Which is interesting as I've seen some terrible reviews, some by people who admit to having not watched the film. Others who were pissed off and stopped after half an hour. I've even seen a couple where they just wrote one sentence and copied it multiple times to fill the character quota. And others full of spelling errors. Just awful.
Ever since smart phones made it easy to leave reviews, the quality of review has gone out the window.
My review was at least articulate enough. To me, it's because of the subject of 'cancellation' which is in the actual film. It's not really off topic. What I said is accurate. And interesting and ironic that the review itself got cancelled.
I changed the titled and resubmitted it to reach a different person as sometimes reviews are rejected by one but passed by another. Says a lot actually.
IMDB is a super woke place these days. Anything that doesn't fit in with their strict dogma is rejected. I've had reviews passed then deleted. I've seen countless people complain about the same thing. How their reviews were also taken down. It's okay for Hollywood to make sweeping (and sadly now stereotypical) judgments about people but don't you dare comment about it.
IMDB is also owned by Amazon. The same company that delivered 2022's most expensive flop, The Rings of Power, which was woke as all hell. They famously deleted thousands of negative comments from their own platform and then banned comments outright. Censorship alive and well.
That's IMDB. And that's the world in general today. Say something 'outside the guidelines' and you're out of a job. And more. Cancelled.
These are oppressive times. Make no mistake.
