Wisdom of the crowd? IMDb users gang up on Christian Bale’s new movie before it even opens.

“The Promise” doesn’t officially open in theaters until Friday. But on IMDb, a website where people can rate movies, the film has received more than 120,000 ratings — nearly 62,000 of them the lowest: one-star.
The ratings have nothing to do with the quality of the film, as it’s almost certain that most people haven’t seen the movie yet. Instead, a group of Internet trolls gathering on a Turkish message board decided to try sinking “The Promise” with bad reviews.

Some personal notes:
Even though, Turkey denies the existence of the genocide, it's important to note three facts about it:
1. The Turkish Republic had issued arrest warrants for all the three architects of the genocide (the Prime Minister and two other ministers)
2. All three of them were convicted in absentia by Turkish Courts for this crime.
3. All three of them were condemned by the highest religious leaders for this crime.
