Kostas Gavras filmed a movie about the 2015 events based on a book by Yanis Varoufakis.
None could imagine that the Right-Left political war would hit imdb page of the movie one month before the movie will be released in the theatres Surprised Surprised

The user reviews (link) is unbelievable for a movie not released yet Surprised

The attack to the movie started less than a day ago by right wing trolls through twitter and fb, even emails to mass groups of fanatic far right groups Rolling Eyes

Have they all got the same notes to copy-and-paste from? You see these phrases cropping up repeatedly: "science fiction movie", "Yiani with one n".

Interesting that if you sort the reviews by review rating, you get a bunch of 1-star reviews, then one 7-star, and then nine and ten-star reviews.

This sort of thing used to go on with Amazon reviews too, especially books about "controversial" subjects.

I thought that imdb stopped comments on their site years ago for this exact reason

Actually what is interesting in this case is the "weaponized" of imdb rating to attack a movie before it is screened, from far-right groups, so people not go and watch it Rolling Eyes
The Rating statistics are even more interesting Confused
