The Batman has been trending in Malaysia and JUICE has even summarised some reviews from Malaysians on just how well-received the film has been lately.

So naturally, a lot of Malaysians are flocking to the theaters to enjoy the film for themselves.

However, an unfortunate incident at TGV Cinemas has dampened the hype.

According to Facebook user, Fazillah Raduan, his cinema experience while watching The Batman quickly turned sour when the theater restarted the film after running for 45 minutes.

When he asked why the film was being restarted, a worker told him that it was because a customer had walked in late.

Of course, Fazillah was angered by this decision since it inconvenienced all the other watchers who were already in the cinema and were on time for the movie.

Not everyone has 178 minutes to spare just to watch Batman solve some riddles.

Check out his post below that was reposted by famous Youtube film critic, Zhaf Vlog:

Many have been speculating that it could be because of a VIP’s late attendance despite the fact that TGV Cinemas has not confirmed this to be true.

TGV Cinemas has since issued an apology and an official statement on the matter. Read it below:

It’s understandable why netizens would be furious at the idea of double-standards, especially since the story has been spun way out of proportion online and we’ve seen countless examples of this happening in the media.

When you go into a cinema hoping to watch a masked vigilante fight injustice, you don’t expect the hammer of injustice to bonk you over the head before you’ve even reached the credits.

But alas, it was all just a miscommunication and human error.

Maybe let’s not jump to conclusions next time?
