182 Justice League reviews are accounted for on Rotten Tomatoes with 65 Fresh to 117 Rotten. As others have pointed out, this move presents a potential conflict of interest because Tomatoes is owned by Fandango, which Warner Brothers has a partial ownership stake in.
Some entertainment writers and fans are skeptical of this reason and wonder how much the delay has to do with Warner Bros' influence and the film's less than dazzling critical showing. Thursday evening showings of Justice League are making their way into theaters, critics have been posting reviews since the embargo lifted and now a Rotten Tomatoes score has officially been released. Rotten Tomatoes has begun holding back scores for some films and television shows so they can be revealed at the end of each episode, and this is the third time a score has been held for the Facebook show. Man of Steel, the 2013 Superman film that kicked off the shared universe, earned a middling 55 percent. Domestically, estimates put the movie's opening weekend somewhere around $110 million to $120 million, which would put Justice League's opening weekend slightly in front of Wonder Woman's ($103.3 million), but well behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's ($166 million).
For many DC movie fans, Rotten Tomatoes scores have been a particular source of fascination and criticism. As compared to that, Justice League is a huge disappointment.
So, in summation, critics reviews are useful, but more likely to help a great, tiny movie to get attention, rather than stop a awful (or, in this case, mediocre) blockbuster making bank.
"The objective of Rotten Tomatoes, as per its own About Us page, is that it "offers the most comprehensive guide to what's fresh". Fandago's ownership of Rotten Tomatoes has likely contributed to the site's popularity surging in the past year, attracting 13.6 million unique visitors in May, the New York Times reported.

I haven't read any of the reviews as of yet, but when these reviewers are giving the Ghostbusters reboot a better review than Justice League, something isn't adding up. Generally, the closer the reviews are published to the movie's release date, the lower the score, according to a Mashable report. Is Justice League the next Avengers, or is it basketball soup? "But it's certainly hard to ignore". The site's percentage plays crucial for any movie.
