When I choose to filter the reviews on 2 stars, of the movie Escape from Alcatraz, I get to see all reviews (visit url https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079116/reviews?sort=helpfulnessScore&dir=desc&ratingFilter=2). I should only see the 2 star reviews.

Hi, Harry de Boer.

This is because no reviews having rank 2 for this title. 
I don't think it's good, but not a mistake.

The title also has no 4-star reviews, and when I select filter 4 stars, the first review shown has no rating indicator at all, which could then be misinterpreted as 4-stars.
  
I would consider it a bug. It should just give "no results".

Hi Harry -

Thanks for reporting this issue, as bderoes suspects, this is likely a bug causing results to display.  I have alerted the appropriate tech team to investigate and as soon as I have a status I will update you here.
