BLACKHAT R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 49 moviegoers: 
TEENS: No Teens
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: All five of the males rated it "below average," which is very low, especially since it's coming from the movies core audience of young males.
ADULTS: Both the male and female reviews are mediocre at best. Approximately 20% of both groups really enjoyed "Blackhat." Unfortunately, the remaining reviews indicate a movie that most were somewhat to very disappointed in. It's rare for a movie to receive such a large percentage of "fair" and "poor" reviews. This is one of those movies where all the exciting scenes are included in the great looking trailer, but the movie itself is disappointingly slow.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, but on the whole reactions will be middling to fairly good. Men will enjoy more than women.

Average critic rating:
Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Very Good (Roger Ebert)
