Better than OK. Other ratings: Too many 1's and too many 5's. It seems like most ratings were done by no more than 2 or 3 people!!!
Joaquin phoenix’s acting was amazing!!
Brilliant, dark, plodding, slow, disturbing and ... did I mention brilliant ?? Not for everyone but a must see even for the uninitiated. It even had a tie back to the dark Knight Returns Graphic novel (Kiss on the talk show). If you want batman action and adventure... not happening. If you want a disturbing insight into what makes the Joker tick... this is it... Brilliant
This movie was so boring. I wanted to leave half way thru it. Don’t waste your money.
the movie is so-so
Should be no stars!!!!!This was the worst movie ever made!!Why bother!!!
Great movie ending made me think hard. Should get an award !
This movie is not what you would expect. The first time I saw this I didn’t hate it or didn’t like it. I was back and forth but when I saw it a second time I did enjoy it more. Things I missed the first time I caught on the second time around because if you saw it once you will probably miss things that the movie is trying to tell you
Holy Moly Batman, What the - was that"? A disturbing, magnificant movie!
They're not kidding when they say this movie is 'dark'! It's based on a mentally ill man who turns into the Joker & at the end you can see where 'Batman' begins. An explanation of how & why Batman originates. A slow (not really action based) movie, explaining why Joker is who he is & why he does what he does. I understood why a mentally ill (no fault of his own) person can reach their breaking point & reacts as he does. Sad with a realization of how & why.
The taxi driver of the 21st century a must see
This movie should be rated RESTRICTED. No one over 21 should see it. It is done very well. The actors are fantastic.
Brilliant! That was the word that my thoughts formulated upon concluding the watching of this movie. With the graphic indulgence into the psyche of the Joker's complexities, one is left feeling an 'understanding' of why he is who he is. Bravo Joaquin for pulling off an Oscar worthy performance depicting this unique character!
Covered many societal issues. Was gritty and realistic. Joaquin Phoenix was incredible.
Most boring piece of junk we have ever seenLleft half way through.
Has evwryone noticed how the negative ratings for this movie are being deleted?
Seemed realistic. Made my stomach turn. Great performance by Joaquin Phoenix.
Although a tad slow for my taste, we are seeing everything from Joker’s perspective and the writer leaves no rock unturned. Left the theater feeling compassion for the Joker. Joaquin’s performance was award winning scary!
Amazing script, and some of the best acting ever done. JP is BRILLIANT!!! Will get best film and best actor oscars. The music throughout the movie is haunting.
Rich kids wont get it. Scheer lovers wont get it. Kardashians wont get it. We'll get it though.
Most ridiculously made gay music clown show ever made
not much action, very slow going, it’s ok
Seemed pretty real to me.
Very dark and realistic. I think it was directed and acted excellently. I dont understand all the static about the violence. Have any of these people who complained seen any horror movies since 1980?. This is NOTHING compared to the violence in Friday the 13th alone. THAT'S a violent movie.
So dark...So amazing!!
Just give the Oscar to Joaquin no vote needed. My friend and I had only 1 word for this movie WOW. Best backstory ever.
Loved it! It shows how and what he went through to become the joker. I thought it was great!
Whsts less than on star. One horrible, overrated piece of junk. It was a complete was of time. Everyone should refunded for their time and any concessions purchased.
What a movie! Loved it, Oscar worthy performance. Dark and Twisted!
Guy in front of me snored through the entire movie, wish I could get a refund.
Very well written and a true depiction of societal conflict in all of us. Definitely provokes many emotional responses. It's like a peek into Commifornia in the near future. Joaquin deserves an Oscar for this, while DeNiro deserves a dumpster.
For those complaining about this movie having "not enough action" this is NOT an action movie. Its a Crime/Thriller movie. I give it 5 stars because of many reasons but to name a few it is unpredictable. Many movies out there lost their touch in originality and creativity making them quite predictable. This one however will leave you surprised in many scenes. This movie switched from perception to reality throughout which is a unique twist. Its a movie that dives deep into who joker is as a PERSON not a villain, but shows you the characteristics of what makes him the villain he is. I gained a new appreciation for Joker that I never had before, and that's because of this movie.
Please, the intellectually inept, keep your mindless rants to yourself. rh
Joaquin Phoenix ashtonishing performance as the "original" JOKER
I felt dirty and disturbed throughout the entire movie. To me, that means the movie people ALL did their jobs as I believe that was one of the reactions they wanted people to feel while watching it. This movie seemed like it was ripped right out of a near future headlines. This wasn't Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Adventure, Comedy ... It is entirely possible. Some parts hit close to home and that was shocking. I felt I was being drawn into the movie. Believe me, that is one place you don't want to go. I know I will think of this movie for a long time. Mr. Phoenix with this role elevates him to one of the best, if not the best Actor today. By far the most realistic Joker to date. Best acting I have seen to date. This is not a date night movie. Keep the kiddies and young teens who are still impressionable as far away as possible. If you want to feel brave go with your friends as you don't want to watch it alone. HATED IT/LOVED IT. So far the best picture I have seen all year.
Movie of the year! Oscar winning performance.
the climax was shocking and jaw dropping you think your getting noware but you do....its like a slow downward spiral into insanity. there was a couple scenes where i was like "holy' its joker unplugged and the more sinister side of the enigma of the character is blam!!. truely masterfull.
This is the Brand New JOKER that you dont expect in a good way. JOKER is actually Crazy... and he did something out of the Blue.
Excellent Acting, unexpected storyline. Must watch!!
