I am looking for a good opposite for "mixed reactions". For example:

The movies with the most mixed reactions from viewers are: ...

Now I want to use the opposite:

The movies with the most [words meaning agreement in reactions] from viewers are: ...

Note that I used "agreement" above. That's intentional because I am not looking for something that conveys the movies were great or terrible. I am just trying to convey that, say, most (> 70-80%) people rated it X out of 5 scale, where X can be 2 or 4 (it doesn't matter). I have "homogeneous reactions" in my mind but I was wondering is there any better alternative?

    How about consistent? – Kate Bunting Nov 14 '18 at 12:34
  • @Glorfindel "Unanimous reactions", sounds good. Thanks. I think it's better than "homogeneous reactions", especially now that I see "homogeneous reactions" is a widely used term in Chemistry. – today Nov 14 '18 at 12:35
  • @KateBunting "consistent reactions", that sounds good too. Thanks. A quick google search tells me there are 14,700 results for "consistent reactions" and 1470 results for "unanimous reactions". So it is more widely used... however unanimous sounds more natural to me in this context... I am not sure... it's a hard choice! – today Nov 14 '18 at 12:43
  • I would say the most agreed-upon reactions. – Jason Bassford Nov 14 '18 at 16:34

unanimous, from the Latin 'unus animus' meaning 'one mind' might work. It's mostly used when there's a 100% agreement, but I found some instances (e.g. here) where it's used comparatively.

1 : ... having the agreement and consent of all

That would make your quote

The movies with the most unanimous reactions from viewers are: ...
