It usually isn’t hard to impress Cinemascore.

The movie review website, which polls audiences leaving the theater on opening night and compiles and computes the polls using its own formula, isn’t too stingy with the As and Bs.

The site, which awards Dredd 3D a B and Here Comes the Boom an A, recently pulled a big switch on Brad Pitt crime drama Killing Them Softly, handing the movie a stinging F.

It’s not particularly surprising Cinemascore comes out with high grades for new movies. People leaving the theater that night probably looked forward to the movie and love the genre already. Which leads us to wonder: Just how bad is Killing Them Softly?
