Netflix’s new #1 movie The man from Toronto was berated by viewers on social media.
The comedy thriller stars Kevin Hart as a gym teacher who is mistaken for an assassin.
Woody Harrelson plays the assassin himself, the so-called “Torontoman” who gets caught up in the mix-up freak.
The man from Toronto has risen to No. 1 in the Netflix film rankings, although the reaction to the film on Twitter has been decidedly mixed.
“Is it just me or is it me? The man from Toronto One of the worst movies ever made?” one person asked. “What a stinker.”
“I went out The man from Toronto. Which was unusual since I saw it on Netflix,” joked another.
“I just finished watching A man from Toronto“And I’m really angry because I wasted my time,” complained another.
“The man from Toronto was awful,” wrote another viewer. “And Kevin…Kevin Hart loves playing the same role: a naive, simple-minded, incompetent, goofy man with a beautiful, successful, loving wife.”
However, others were far more positive, some praising the film’s comic tone and Hart’s performance.
“Just watching The man from Toronto. Honestly, Kevin Hart is great, that’s all I can say. Fantastic movie,” one person commented.
“I just finished watching The man from Toronto and i enjoyed it abeg. I don’t understand why you guys hate the movie,” wrote another.

“The man from Toronto is an extremely silly and wacky action/comedy starring Kevin Hart doing his usual shtick and being Woody Woody, that’s exactly why I started getting into it at some point during the movie,” another wrote. “When you turn off your brain, it’s ridiculous fun.”
It’s not the first time viewers have complained about a film topping the Netflix leaderboard. earlier this month, interceptor rose to No. 1 despite viewers calling it “terrible.”
The man from Toronto is now available to stream on Netflix.
