Google added: “This rejection will not affect any other review features in Google Search. Please feel free to leave a mark on your website so that search engines can better understand your page.
Looks like Google has decided to deprecate their ‘critic review’ markup (applied to LocalBusiness, Movies & Books).
They found that the markup wasn’t useful for the ecosystem at scale. Fine to leave your existing markup on pages.

Critical reviews are fragments of longer review articles created, curated, or compiled by a single publisher for one publisher.
Critic reviews usually appear in search results with a review summary, reviewer’s name, and editor icon to help your readers easily find the review and navigate to your website to read the full review.
You can provide critical reviews for content types, including local businesses, movies, and books.
Google launched critic reviews in 2015.
