What matters most (to me):
Code reviews need to be about support.
If there's a large PR, written by the most awesome, experienced 10x developer there's still a good chance even the intern, that is just starting out will be able to spot something.

It's sometimes hard if people point out a lot of things, it's easy to become defensive, maybe those people are actually less experienced or capable or couldn't write that code themself.

AWESOME (:
To me, that's the power of code reviews. Even some intern just starting to code has a good chance to improve the code written by the most experienced developer.

That's why code reviews are awesome and why they are so important.
