We can't be too upset on how IMDb rates the movies, because it appears to all be computerized on member input. I'm not swift to convict so this movie was given a quick look see. The producer definitely needed a good sound man to cut down on mic echos, and blend the soundtrack properly. They also needed better editing to give this film more continuity. It appears nobody had heart in the making of this movie..., now How to Check for Accurate Movie Ratings on IMDb.
1) We first see that IMDb has an exceptionally high score. Take it with a grain of salt. And, go straight to the reviews.
2) Find the who "Hated It" ratings or those who gave a very low score and why. In this case we find the guy who titled his review "Beyond cheesy" gave the lowest movie score, and his belief on why. Having gave the movie a look I'll have to agree with him, but did I have to waste my time on watching the movie ~ NO!
3) All one has to do is look at the 'profile' of those who gave it an off the charts score. Here we find the guy who titled his review as "Fast paced and action packed!" Because of him IMDb's computer rated the movie at 6.8 as of this writing. But, if you look at this guy's profile he joined Jan 2014, and rate the movie on Feb. 3rd, 2014 just a few days after it's release. Moreover, Betrayal is the ONLY Movie that he RATED! An obvious shill for the movie? Read on...
We see this all the time on IMDb. People with profiles giving a movie too high a score, and it's the only movie they've ever rated. Sometimes I find a number (3 or more for example) of people with a profile that rates the movie too high and again, it's the only movie they've ever rated! These people have a vested interest in the success of the movie and used a superficial rating, because the movie can't stand on its own merits.
If it's a high budget movie, metacritic or a metascore will also kick in its separate rating at the top of the movie's cover page. This is useful, but must be balanced with good and bad reviews. Check those 'high score profiles' to see if they're pulling a fast one! With a little investigative work, one can save allot of time, money, and wasting themselves away at the movies.
BTW: If you find yourself in a bad movie, please come back, rate it, and tells us why.
