Ouch, my bad... I reread my original comment and guess the ending was not entirely polite! My sincere apologies for the slip. I felt the reviewer was being equally unfair in the criticism of creative talent of the creator and thus expressed so rather emotionally. My only defense, not being the professional.
Mea Culpa for the perceived personal attack. However, I do not believe my comments where any more personal than those of the reviewer. Honestly, I do not see how my criticism was considered a personal attack rather than a comment intended to question this professionals review by pointing out several very specific assertions they made which are not entirely accurate, but used to justify a rather negative review. This just seemed more than slightly predetermined or based more on their view of how things should be rather than on the merits or the work. My point being they were not being professionally objective.
It's a shame when folks fixate on their own opinions regarding reality; oft forgetting that their own experiences and opinions are not the entirety of the real world. I point directly to this review author's assertion that no ten year old boy running around NYC is a believe tale. Yet, I did so myself and rarely found myself as alone as you might think. Yes, a lot of folks may tend to prefer to keep their kids locked away in NYC and for good reason. But, young people are not known for being overly cooperative and often do things they really should not, regardless of their parent’s attention. Secondly, does this child running all over NYC also address the notion the parent is in fact absent? Another assertion the reviewer made without regard to that being an overly obvious interpretation of the boy being unsupervised for such lengths of time. I suggest folks watch the movie and for the reviewer here to reconsider their own skill set as lacking.
