Why thumbs down on reviews?

I am relatively new on Viki and really appreciate the reviews to help me decide if I want to watch a show or movie. Now I have noticed that many reviews I found helpful will have no “Thumbs Up” but may have a number of “Thumbs Down”. I was so surprised that now I am wondering if anyone knows why. It seems to happen only in the English reviews. I also noticed a glowing review might get 7 thumbs down while an equally glowing but poorly written review may get a few thumbs up. Is it more about the reviewers themselves rather than the actual reviews?
