MIS4 - Not the Hype
The acting was good and i have nothing against the actors or DC comics.
Non biased review... the movie made me sleepy as it took forever for things to happen. When things did happen, they were short lived. I think they tried, but there is only so much you can really muster about an evil villain. Hard pass for me. Boring.
Erkmag - Awesome
Very well done
Real Movie Lover - 11/10
I watch a lot of movies! A LOT, this is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I watched it for FREE on hbo, then came here & bought it! They didn’t miss it really shows you what exactly drove his mind to become JOKER. Amazing movie
alex j russell - Excellent, emotional film; shows how comic books reflect reality, and vice versa
A lot has been said about this movie, and at the same time not enough... Joaquin Phoenix gives it his all, and then some, as Arthur Fleck/Joker and the supporting cast fills the film with sincerity and weight, really fleshing out the world around Arthur. Outside of the excellent production design and layered storytelling, the beauty of this movie lies in its chameleon-like nature; if you want to see this as a super-villain origin story, go right ahead; if you want to see this as a parable for modern culture, it works that way too; if you see it as a gritty character drama, then, yes, it's that too. "Joker" can be difficult to watch, but the bold and fearless nature of its storytelling cannot be denied. "Joker" as a whole does not, in any way, glorify or idolize the violent monster that Arthur becomes; it simply puts us inside his head for a week or so, and uncovers a human perspective that is rarely seen in comic book movies.
washing my snake - favourite movie
there are better movies yes, but the overall sheer amount of work and backstory and incredible acting, costumes, set design, digital design, and thought that went into the look of every single little detail is IMMACULATE and i’m in love.
so so good. definitely recommend
georgie floydie - Capulatung m
Me likely move a loy
I just want a say - Overrated, but not awful
As much as I did enjoy the film, it felt too much like Taxi Driver with less depth. It was overhyped and I do not understand the praise it receives outside of Joaquin Phoenix’s performance. Aside from that it never felt as deep as everyone claimed it to be, especially compared to Martin Scorsese’s work
Review critic 2.3 - Just smile🤡
This was the best film of 2019 Joaquin Phoenix did an incredible job of portaing a joker that exists in our world it works as a comic book movie and a film at the same time it's not disturbing but it the picture is incredible
Trip1102 - Outstanding Movie
For those who struggle to separate politics from art or reality from entertainment, keep scrolling. Joaquin Phoenix’s performance was phenomenal. I was skeptical about the movie, given the hype and some of the reviews. But, after watching this movie, it was extremely worthy of the praise it received. If you are looking for an action movie, this ain’t it. It is a well-constructed backstory. Again, “a well-constructed backstory”. It isn’t a superhero vs villain action movie. If you have the ability to separate politics from art and can separate reality from entertainment, this movie will be worth your time.
zkk3333 - I love Joker!!!
I love this movie very much. It’s a huge hit. Wish DC make more movies like this
CanyonRose11 - One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen ...
This movie could have been so much better than it was ~ very disappointed in the plot or lack thereof! Glad I only rented it for $2.99 ~ even that was a waste of money. The only upside: Great acting by Joaquin Phoenix but not something to be proud of, in my opinion.
QDS111118229 - What happened?
Script incoherent, acting not bad, overall could have been much better. There was no really storyline. It was written like a Tv soap; where there were so many ways for the characters to go. It simply left too many openings to follow what was really the path of the joker. Didn’t make much a direct point.
Some reviews point out about mental illness and violence. Then talk about how it’s not appropriate to make fun/money off of it. Well it’s about the Joker; which is what he is know for being. Which all comic book villains really are mental unstable. So they aren’t abusing mental illness in an evil way.
Not worth the it’s salt.
JOEY TOXIC - Not worth your time
The movie was mediocre.
E.Ep - Amazing
This movie exceeded all my expectations
AGT1201 - It’s ok
The acting by Phoenix is 5 stars & the portrayal of mental illness deserves 5 stars, but the story is sadly 2 stars with a very drawn out & unimpressive plot and lowkey has revolutionary/communist vibes. The character of the joker is 3 stars tops because he doesn’t strike me as smart enough to take on Batman and the police force. This joker was far less amusing than the Dark Knight on. Overall this joker isn’t interesting & doesn’t pull me in to examine him more closely... if anything I want to look away.
Mearsov - Don’t understand the hype
I don’t get why so many love this movie. The love this movie gets in my opinion does not match up. I thought Joaquin played joker great but the overall story maybe could have been better.
lonegull101 - Lack of meaning
A dark, violent, distrubing film using a mental ill/pyschotic man to justify violence as protest against the inequalities and injustices of society. No point or meaning at the end.
user｜in｜china - Fantastic
This is what calls ARTS.
thecasualguy - Great Movie!!!
Really shows how society steps on those with mental health and the consequences it can lead to
davej - A Progressive Prospective
Which means we’re supposed to feel sorry for the insane criminal and support the “Resist” movements violent protestors. If that’s not for you skip this one.
Darkseid84 - HORRIBLE!!!
This movie is a prime example of having no real development of the universe fo DC. Why was this made? It was a complete waste of a film. I am so glad I never saw this in a theater. I found myself regularly drifting to READING A BOOK then watching the movie. Rent this at best but never buy this trash.
ordinary reviewer - Besides Joaquin , nothing for display
This is not a comic book movie! This is certainly named joker because of making money out of sth that should have been named a lame and junk attempt to fabricate sth like Taxi driver...
I really hate to say it but I think the producers of this movie are nothing less than a con-artist trying to sell Taxi driver in shell of a popular comic book character!
This movie is less than a piece of garbage...
Folks don’t waste your time on this!
Angry bald guy - Amazing!
This was a masterpiece of a movie! Not the feel good movie of the year. I makes the viewer question what is and is not real in this movies world. The score blends so perfectly that you have actively listen for it. If you’re expecting an Avengers or Batman comic book movie, don’t. It deserves no less than 8 Oscars.
Yam Bo - Joker
I remember watching this movie in November 2019 and absoutly loving this movie. After i watched it and went home, i have no idea why but i fell in a pit of obsession. Its a great movie!
MTM.MAN - FAR OUT
I had no idea that this was the back story on the Joker from the Batman. I thought it was just some Joker wannabe and he had a rough life and took it out on everyone. Anyway, while it may have been a bit interesting to watch one time, and Joaquin is a good actor, I just don't like the story since it is over the top gory and depressing. Besides, in the main movies, the Joker was not a total loser in life as it is in this story. But the best part is seeing Deniro suffer and take it on the chin as a character, cause I certainly did not watch it to see him. Awful story though & not something that I would ever purchase.
fyea$$reviewer - Fye
Surya-S - Impressive!
This was a really good movie, very dark, but fantastic acting, especially Joaquim Phoenix. The story is also grim and makes you think - thats a sure sign of a good movie.
pima1218 - One of best origin movies I’ve seen
There are so many little connections in this movie (Joker) to the Batman trilogy from Christopher Nola that only people who understand Batman trilogy movies really appreciate this movie (joker).
marvelfanboy99 - Masterpiece
I swear to you it is worth a watch .people giving it one star must not be able to handle it .
CoreyReviews - Believe the hype
It’s fantastic it really it. Joaquin Phoenix delivers possibly his greatest role to date. Todd Phillips really surprises, breaks out of his comedy roots and crafted a real gem. I’m sure everyone has seen Joker by now, but if you haven’t, believe the hype. It really is a treat.
Darkdustspirit - HATE IT
watched it in theaters. HATE IT. i dont know the comic book (never read any) Joker so idk what his "REAL" backstory is, all i know comes from movies and cartoons so my image of Joker maybe off. this movie is about a man's hopes and dreams being crushed slowly over a LONG time until he breaks. Movie could hav been about ANYONE but someone got the idea to hav the guy turn into Joker. I prefer the former gangster backstory where he falls into chemicals and is twisted that way and NOT by LIFE. Seems too "real" like it could happen today. so i say i want NOT entertained by this film.
K justo - Disappointing
It is better to get the corona virus than watching this pointless endless garbage
Abid2044 - WoW
Movie of the year
Suferdudefrank - An amazing movie !!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍
Best origin story 🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏🃏😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣
WBBaglio - Too psychotic and mentally disturbing
I was advised NOT to watch this, and I’m advising you all NOT to.
JAMZILLAA - Speechless
Cabron666 - good movie🤡
this was a good movie.
theknot2326 - Joker
The best movie ever.
Spankmymoto - Slow. Boring. Awful.
I just sat there bored out of my mind watching this movie. I think the acting was great but the movie bored me to tears and I thought by the end of this feature film I was going to have mental issues.
Just a God awful boring movie. Rent it if you must watch it.
schumerfan - Brilliant
A brilliant and perfect film. So important to show how society treats the mentally ill. Joaquin phoenix is nothing short of amazing and brilliant. An instant classic. You must see this movie.
a123slonky - See it twice
When I initially saw it, I didn’t understand the hype for the film. You need to not think of it as a DC movie and just watch it for what it is - a mans slow decent into darkness and what he becomes in the end. I would like this to just be a one-off film, but I am sure there will be sequels.
Blooper62 - Way overhyped
This movie is incredibly overhyped. Joaquin Phoenix did great and I really like him as an actor. The movie which shows the origins of the Joker is fine but it is way too long for what it shows. Think Scarface but before Al Pacino becomes Scarface. It’s good to know Info but boring overall
Toasty Morgendorffer - Boring
Rez Reviewer - All hype
Very boring. There’s absolutely NOTHING special about this movie. Save the $6 and rent it when it’s .99. If you think I’m being harsh, watch it for yourself, and tell me I’m wrong.
Playah-d - Not a fan
Huge Batman fan, but this is way to far
collegekidchad - Weird and horrible
I don’t know who this movie was made for or why it was made, but it was weird and odd and just horrible. After watching this movie, I don’t understand why it was made, or what it had to do with anything? Watching a guy with a less than ideal life spiral is not my ideal of entertainment. I’m sorry for everyone that has watched it or will watch it.
Willywankers - Great movie!
It really shows what it would be like to be in his shoes. It’s a great movie and I recommend it

asifali - A mirror of our society today.
What a great movie on so many levels. The acting, script, production, and its marketing--all done quite right. The movie itself leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I personally think it showed all of us the true image of what our society has become today; we are actually responsible for creating the Joker. A good or bad Joker? Will leave you guessing. 😐
This deserves a full score 5 out of 5.
moondog001 - Joker
Brilliant movie. I hope there is a number 2 ... in the Lokers perspective, with Batman. That would be a fun watch too.
Luc Presley - lacoche
un tes bon film un vrai chedeuvre
AkemiKat - Caricature of a Psychopath
Superb drama. Mega kudos to Joaquin Phoenix for a brilliant performance. I’m not a hardcore Batman fan but I appreciated the dark humour and drama that was presented.
Sunshine0262 - Pretty good
Superb acting on the part of Phoenix and De Niro, as always; but the way the character was portrayed was too inconsistent with the character in the comics. The Joker in the comics is a genius, but Phoenix's version was far less intelligent than the average person due to a brain injury the character suffered as a child. A physically weak, mentally delayed villain is hardly a realistic arch nemesis to Batman.
fjst1980 - Amazing movie
Very critical point of view of a capitalist society. It perfectly shows how an individual is a victim of the system... great overall
GJH48188 - Terrible
Awful & boring. Don’t waste your time renting this snooze fest.
Wally1989 - Worst show ever
This movie is horrible. We’re an hour in and I don’t think there’s been an initiating incident. I have no idea why this show gets any ratings over 1-2 stars.
amirj0176 - joker
Judge not - great laughing
good story but super slow film
👋💕💕😄🙂 fhh - This should be an Oscar
It’s so interesting and humorous
Jrssm - Bad
A very long movie, overacted and not enjoyable. 2+ hours I won’t get back in my life.
666Leaf - Haven’t seen it yet
I’m gunna test drive this movie and then I’ll give it a true rating ! Wish me the best! Hope it’s not a waste of time
TheMamba07 - ART.
Amazing movie! Reality of today’s society!
aibin 11 - Outstanding movie
No words 👌🏻👌🏻
GabeJoe - The Joker was terrible
There was no story. The acting was bad. It was about a man who was mentally disturbed and he was getting worse. I wish I could get my money back and the time I wasted watching this piece of crap.
Sirglub - Joaquin is great
What a lame movie. Doesn't bring anything new to the table unless you live in a world where you only watch garbage Disney movies and whatever Fast and Furious they're on now. Joaquin is expectedly great and there's some good production value in this movie, but everything else is so mediocre and borderline awful. What a fake-deep movie.
KidCOBOL - A “beautiful” descent into madness
Joaquin Phoenix deserves an Oscars for his performance. He Just nailed it.
Och.laddie - Fantastic acting and story (damn Wayne family!)
You can’t help but connect to the Joker. I rarely give 5 stars but am doing so here. Great movie - if a bit of a downer...
thallbird - F***ing Perfect Movie
Like some of the other reviews written on here, I can’t seem to get enough of this movie. I’ve watched it 3 times all the way through and I still get “cravings” for certain scenes that I watch over and over on YouTube. The music in the film is absolutely haunting and fits so well with the mood and the feelings of everything that Arthur is going through. I haven’t felt this way about a movie in a long time where like a song that get stuck in your head, Joker is that song. IMO, the people who rated this movie 1 star and called it boring and thought it had no story with zero entertainment factor, these people simply don’t understand true art when it’s slapping them in the face. Joaquin Phoenix just proved once again why he’s one of my favourite actors. He F***ing slayed it!
StarAction - Superb Acting
This movie deals with society’s failure to deal with people suffering with mental illness. Thankfully, the acting was absolutely superb, otherwise, this would just be another dark violent film.
NishaanCheddie - Worst movie ever
He should win an award for his stellar acting. But the story is very boring and very uneventful.
canuckliberal - Waste
A typical terrible movie. Cannot stress how bad and boring this movie is. Will be in the top ten worst of all time.
Willy Highrock - Good acting but a bit of a let down
Phoenix was great but pretty depressing and just as he turns the corner it ends?
SuperherOcritic - An Unbiased Review from a Comicbook Lover
I can’t believe they did it. Even Logan disappointed me with its annoying reliance on superhero tropes, and I STILL consider that film to be in the top 5 superhero films of all time. I am still in disbelief how this was made by the same people that thought the theatrical release of Batman v Superman was coherent in any way. If you are tired of seeing (AND hearing) blatant advertising in your superhero movies, such as the exclamation of “axe body spray”, or the constant revving and frontal shots of Audi’s, then this might hit that sweet spot. It has an indie feel and although the lines are not always great, they are effective, emotional, and powerful. The dialogue in the script is one of my few criticisms that I have to complain about, although the plot is brilliant. Again, as said with Logan - I would give Endgame a 4/5 as well. But this is different. This is a tragedy of a man turning evil. As simple as the extraordinary 1917 by Sam Mendes this year, and just as affective. The score in Joker is absolutely haunting, and draws you in to the guaranteed downfall of a mentally ill man in poverty; someone who makes some incredibly impulsive, realistically dower decisions that lead him into a new reality. A look into a sociopath that doesn’t sensationalize his destructive, chaotic mind - but attempts to understand how someone - a conscious human being - can become something so entirely horrific. While not my favourite movie of the year, it did touch me the most emotionally.
For a little more reference, my top 5 superhero films of all time:
1. The Dark Knight
2. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
4. Infinity War/Endgame (can’t choose so I count it as one and hope we get an epic 5 and a 1/2 hour film
5. Spider-Man 2
Manning2072 - Best DC movie to date!
Fantastic movie a must see 100%
2121sugarland - Joker
Awesome film!! Joaquin Phoenix was FANTASTIC!!
marz52 - Gifted
Phoenix is one of the truly gifted actors of all time. His performance was stellar and the dedication to is art is
beyond comparison in this film.
SLapp appy - And The Oscar Goes To...
We riot if he doesn’t win! Excellent directing as well.
[email protected] - Awesome Movie!!! Not enough like this
Joaquin Phoenix was amazing just Wow!!!
coolbeazcrap - WOW
It's a masterpiece! and it shock me when I saw it in theatre's!
Kris Atkinson - Amazing, must watch
Negative reviews are from one of two kinds of people: a) fans of the Joker character who were expecting a slapstick comedy, or b) people who didn’t understand the movie at all.
The movie “works” on so many levels, and is wide open to interpretation—just like the best cinematic experiences of all time. The story and character are refreshingly complex.
Hazèæl - Masterpiece
If you don’t like it, jump down a bridge, thank you!
Thepill94 - Mazing
illerbiller - Something missing
Great actors, some the best characters in comic/movie, good writing but the movie did not captivate me like I was expecting it would. I love the series but this movie was not fun to watch. Lots of pointless scenes.
Merlin$ - Oscar time!
Just finished watching this bad boy!! About close to perfection as any cinematic masterpiece that i’ve seen..... layers upon layers of art..... crazy though.... but in a great way!
Bcguy12 - Great movie
Everyone in the family loves it!
mattthearchitect - Best Movie of All-Time
A masterclass of acting, writing, directing, cinematography, lighting, music, sound... absolutely everything in this movie is just perfect. Joaquin Phoenix deserves an Oscar for his performance, it’s right up there with Heath Ledger. I love this movie so much, the themes of turning your tragedies into passion and loss of identity are very powerful and a lot of the metaphors in this movie just leave you awestruck at how accurate they are. If you haven’t seen this movie because you’re not a DC fan, I implore you to please watch this movie, because it is a DRAMA first, a DC movie second. It doesn’t feel like a comic book movie, it feels like a psychological drama. See this movie NOW.
Brilandry - Incredible
Jane Monheit's fan - Good character origination movie
This is like Frozen for adult. Its the same Let it Go theme. Anyway all jokes aside, the 16x9 aspect ratio cut definitely don't do this film justice. Its a tad shame that Joaquin Phoenix getting typecast to play loners or mentally unstable guy or both.
Meghanleopard - An absolute must see
My new favourite movie. If you don’t follow the Batman saga there’s no need to stress. This movie is a show all on its own and really opens your eyes to today’s world and the mental health issues many suffer. Had me feeling a different emotion every few minutes. After seeing it once I was craving to see it again. Joaquin had me hooked on his amazing performance!
Phoenix_Phlyer - Joker
A really good movie with suspense and action in the movie that’s explain as the journey continues in the movie
SteveWW - Great acting but...
Like others I thought the lead was terrific. Much like Heath Ledger, Joaquin took the character and immersed himself in it. Too bad the movie didn’t live up to his acting.
It was ponderous with scenes that probably could have been cut but were left in despite them not really adding to the movie. The cinematography was great but it didn’t add a whole lot to the movie. The stairs scenes were wonderful but it didn’t really add much to the character. For me it felt like an add on, “Oh, I love these stairs, let’s do a scene here.”
Yes, yes, I’ve read some of the things pointed out about the movie, e.g. his laughs and his final laugh, but it doesn’t help the movie all that much. Sure, sure, the points make the movie more intriguing but still ponderous. I get the feeling this is a love it or hate it type movie for many.
Migzzy Migz - Excellent
Great movie - especially the part where Robert Dinero “gets what he fugging deserves”....couldn’t agree more, his acting was terrible and someone needs give this has-been a clue, maybe get him to watch that part of the movie a few more times so it sinks in.
Anyway- I give this a 12 out 10 stars .
Cardinell86 - Truly Mind Bending!
Props to the writers.
Booyaah2 - DRS
Mr Phoenix is excellent but can’t top the late Heath Ledgers performance. He will always be the best Joker may he RIP
nnnnnnnnnicolassssss - Good
Dark knight is better
DirectingArt - Perfection, Pain, Passion and Pleasure
The movie leaves you wanting more. How the hell did this only get 69 on rotten tomatoes - guessing it offended a bunch of idiots - a billion dollar movie, with an award winning cast - it’s time for the tomato people to go away.
Chayceme - Boring as...
Yes, he is it an incredible actor, unreal really! But that’s all the movie is about. How amazing of an actor he is really. Incredible snorer really. Would never want to be punished to watch it again. Stick to action adventure guys!
[email protected] - Clowns have always freaked me out…
…but I bought this movie and have watched it twice in two consecutive days. A remarkable work of art. Phoenix is beyond amazing. I’m not a Batman movie fan. This movie stands on its own two feet. There is a strong message here, and I do hope people are listening. Joaquin is an incredible artist. Well done!
Cornishflipper - Good but different
There are moment of brilliance in this film and the direction is great. Joaquin is great in the role. I think the film itself for me didn’t connect and I was left just watching a film and was like ‘ok’ at the end. Film 8/10
jd.. x - Brilliant
Stunningly shot, brilliant acting & storyline.
Liam Jake - Slow-paced but good
It is undeniable that The Joker is a masterpiece of acting. The cinematography is pristine and dullish adding to the effect desired of bleak, pessimistic doom. However, the story felt slow. It was fast paced enough to keep me entertained but I feel there is just a wee bit more juice we could have gotten from the story.
Straw clutching - The best film I’ve seen for ages.
What a great film, but if you’re expecting a DC action packed film, look elsewhere, this film is a character study on what made the Joker the Joker, it’s thought provoking, it’s upsetting, you really feel for him, a film that suggests that society can make people the way they are.
Seen this film three times and whilst I thought Mr Ledgers portrayal was awesome this is different its equally awesome and deserved the Oscar. 5 Stars....buy it and enjoy it over and over.
Blaize71 - Brilliant
Thought provoking, utterly brilliant. If this film doesn’t demonstrate the sheer upward hill struggle of the mentally sick nothing will
goerge277778 - Joker
This film was an amazing heart breaking story. The acting was exceptional and kept true for this iconic character. The soundtrack makes this film even better. This film is one of the best I’ve seen for years.
For fans of comic book mythology it’s a must, for those looking for a comic book action movie you will be disappointed.
?!?!?!?!???!?!?!!??? - Don’t bother
I got get the hype just boring to be honest
Baz P Cov - Awesome
What a film, brilliant!
Phoenix is amazing.
Royalratch - Massivley overrated.
Yes Pheonix gives a great performance and yes the look does immerse you in the world - that's all this film has to offer.
The best way I can describe this film is it's as if a first year film school student was given millions of dollars to have a go. The story does nothing to help you believe that this guy will one day be smart and dangerous enough to hurt Batman - and it MUST do that, it cannot just live in the vacuum of the Directors mind othrewise it's just a story about a weirdo. There has to be SOME respect paid to the canon. Next, the shot composition was very contrived, the story progression was primtive and designed only to make the Joker seem like a pathetic loser that's clearly going to snap - when it happened it was no shock. Neither was it an insightful and shocking exploration of mental illness - it was more a cliche version of that rendered in crayons. The dialogue was basic and whilst the imagery was well executed it used very well worn themes of this genre. Totally overrated, a really poor film. But audiences these days are easily duped what can I say...
jam 90 billion - Joker
I love old joker road
Hyh115 - It’s ok. It is not fun..
This is a pretty dark take on a comic. Maybe it was dark originally, but it seemed a little too ‘extreme end of psychosis’ for me.
Eitherway. Well acted; boring; should have rented it.
LordJonnyD - Masterpiece.
Great work Joaquin Phoenix.
GhostDragon33 - Don’t hesitate to watch
Super story. Amazing acting my JP. However I thought De Niro has had better performances.
Syed31 - Fantastic
Very Good Movie.
Jacob355 - Excellent
Really brilliant movie 👍
cornwallnick - What a load of rubbish......
Not a film for viewing more than once. If you miss it you would not miss much...Definitely over hyped. If you need to know what it is about....it’s about mental illness. It is very apt for today’s world. A very sad mentally ill person that turns violent. Not what I call entertainment....move along.
AJPW21 - Film of 2019!!
One of the greatest films of all time! Quality and really well written! Highly recommend
Ajdin_O - One of my favourite movies ever
Never ever left a review - but this deserves it more than any other film. Within minutes of watching it for the first time at the cinema, I knew this would be one of my favourite movies ever. I ended up watching it four times in cinemas - something I wouldn't do for any other film.
It truly has a resounding effect - a certain nostalgia that creeps in almost as soon as you hear the first jazz playing on the streets of Gotham and see Arthur himself dancing away in the first scene.
More than a masterpiece!
Chino195 - A great movie
I was skeptical when they decided to release a joker origin story but from the first, and particularly the last minutes, I was hooked. Every inch of this film had been well thought out. Nice to see a comic book movie that’s not filmed entirely in front of a green screen
R Tawia - Excellent
hamwhacker - What is the hype about?
I found this film slow moving, boring, uninspiring and depressing. Not sure what the point of it was at all. Just demented trash. Famous actors further twisting the view of the world for their own backward derangement. No thanks
cah2004 - Woke Nihilism, Socialism
take the longest peroid of economic growth in history, paint a backdrop of closing shops and streets riddled with homeless, massive petty crime, and rich bankers (who else of course) betting up random people and harassing woman on a broken down (persumably band new back then subway) dress it up as a critique of capitalism and "lack of government spending" laugh akwardly a lot and go on a rampage and call it a work of genuis. Standard stuff from the hollywood brigade woke fest. a nothing film
Mcg Eire32 - Overrated
Very overrated. A decent watch but don’t believe the hype.
Kevstig - Best fim with a dark side
A brilliant film with Joaquin Phoenix as you follow on his journey through to becoming jojer . The violence is brutal and the plot and characters are superb.
Chazaton - Crazy crazy ! Wow!
What’s. Rush! This move killed it! It was so dark and twisted and the last 10 minutes were so dark and twisted! Me and my m8 $upple died for this! So crazy and dark and twisted too! Keep an eye out as I am an extra in the 19th scene. This movie deserved recognition but it gone none! Especially as it is so dark and twisted!
ItzCookie_Lover345 - 😔😔😔-wEiRd_pOtaTo
I was super sad when I saw batman wasn’t in this😩😭😭
latent500 - Superb!
An entertaining film from start to finish. Phoenix deserves all the awards and recognition of his commitment and dedication to the role.
RosieAsher - Superb
Dark, brilliantly acted, and lived up to the hype. I’ve never seen Batman, or know anything about it, but it works 100% as a stand alone film! Excellent film. Highly recommend it.
Chromo88 - Wow!
Can’t praise this film enough... brings a human/realistic feel like the Dark Knight trilogy did. No stupid effects or “Yeah right” moments. Just wish they could nail a Batman film down with the same effect! Maybe with this (Phoenix) Joker portrayal considering the era it’s set... wouldn’t be too out there for this Joker to be crazy enough by the time Bruce Wayne puts on the suit & cowl!? Cracking film though, well recommended... 3rd time I’ve watched it now!
2ted - Just boring
After an hour of watching I turned this off as nothing was going on here.
Gwyd the Squid - An Oscar-winning masterpiece!
Joaquin Phoenix bagged his first Oscar for his work on this film. You can see why - he transforms the movie into one of the year’s (maybe even one of the decade’s) greatest. The Oscar-winning score is brilliantly haunting, and Todd Philipps brings all his directorial talent to create a dark, disturbing (and ever so beautiful) work of genius!
Sample text man - What hasn’t been said?
Best movie of the 2010’s
Don’t go into this looking for action. This movie is a slow burner, it’s a drama.
Since it’s not based on the original Joker don’t go looking for something like Heath Ledger or Jack Nicholson. This is his own incarnation of a beloved character, drastically different but not enough to the point where you don’t recognise him.
It’s tackling of mental health is not about your average Joe, it’s about what happens when you let the crazy guy down the hall run wild because he’s been pushed to the edge.
Arthur is a character you can’t help but sympathise with but he’s not meant to be liked. He does despicable things. You watch it wishing you could tell him not to. You’re meant to feel uncomfortable by him and they do an excellent job of that.
It has a further comment on the effects of austerity and poverty, and how it can further drive someone into madness when all hell for them is cut off.
So to recap
Don’t go in expecting action.
Don’t expect a classic interp of this character.
Don’t get impatient, it’s a slow film.
Get ready to be disturbed but saddened.

Loved this film, one of the best films seen in a long time, it’s gonna be one of those films that will be talked about in history for being legendary. Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant. Parts made me feel sympathetic towards the character, other times made me laugh a little, though it is very dark and disturbing at times, but just genius. He is a genius!
G1cvr - Joker
Wot a waist of time ,and it won awards,some sad people out there ,just awful,and crap
Nomadman2k - Average Movie
I know there is all the hype around this movie, but it didn’t really do much. Slow, long and drawn out with a very dull story line. The acting was ok, but realistically this isn’t a big screen epic, it had a made for TV feel to it.
Retro Pietro - Genius
Mr Phoenix is a great man.
RU5UR3 - Slow and boring
One of the most disappointing films I’ve seen in a long time. Don’t waste your time.
Wandering apps - Ok but creepy
This is something you watch once and probably won’t ever watch again
Stephlou93 - Zero stars, disappointed,
I can not BELIEVE how poor this film genuinely is. As a fan of the joker, you expect depth. This was none other than a chuck together! 1 hour 21 mins it took to get OK! & it took 3 times for me to complete without thinking I cba for this. I had to finish it - But this really gives no justice to the imagination of one who genuinely looks to the joker as the biggest bad guy of Gotham city! - Disappointment can not begin to explain
Marzbar_Joker - Masterpiece!!
Joaquin has the Oscar IN THE BAG!!! A truly amazing performance! I know no one who doesn’t like this amazing piece of cinema! 5 solid stars!!
Mac7184 - Incredible!
I cannot rate this film highly enough!
I have to say I was really indifferent about this film before watching it. However, once the film started I was drawn in, hooked and spellbound. What an incredible film and performance!
Can’t wait to see this again!
iuesvkcmdtvvhjnm - Darker movie
This was definitely a dark twisted tale of jokers origins I thought it was brilliant but the last 30-40 minutes of the movie were brilliant
Rr 7 - Why one star?
Well as good as the acting is that is to be expected of an experienced actor. The problem is I hoped he would win best actor but unfortunately winning a bafta Which he claims is institutionally wrong makes a big complaint then accepts the award thusly by doing this endorses the institution that he disagrees with!
FranklinDStallone - Enjoyable, well done
This is easily the best comicbook film to come out in time. That doesn’t say much but when even compared to all films this is a quite good one. Dark and enjoyable. Certainly worth taking a chance on it.
There are two very loud little groups of people who will tell you it’s either the worst film ever or the best film ever purely based on their extremist ideology. The film is neither. It’s just good. The higher end of good but still, it’s not the second coming. Nor is it awful.
Japalmer1974 - Not all that
Slow burner that gets going at the end. Felt let down after all the hype... Rent, don’t buy.
Scottiesimp - Good
Good film but really wouldn’t watch it more than once
I luva laugh - Brilliant!!
Totally brilliant film !!! ... it will be an an absolute joke .... if Joaquin Phoenix does not get the Oscar for best actor !! The guy is outstanding!!
Gibbo6828 - Enjoyed
Really liked this, intense mad brutal yeah
RossLevere - Stunning!
This film blew me away! Not-at-all what I was expecting from Todd Phillips who I previously felt was only capable of making forgettable bromance movies. Phoenix gives an astounding performance and I both long for a sequel and pray that one never comes to pass. One of my favourite films for sure!
ScouseTho - Joker
Just wow, what a dark and moving story, which is very twisted, could watch it over n over

CoryInthehouseIsthebestanime - Extraordinary Cinematic Masterpiece
This is one of the greatest movies I’ve seen in my life, Joaquin Phoenix crushed it. And might I add, I’ve see some of the negative comments around this movie, I can say that I respect your opinion but most of those comments have no idea what they’re talking about.
sb9923 - One of my Top 10
Definitely worth watching a second time!
whynot363 - Say whaaaat?!?!
This was a terrible movie. I mean this is the most pathetic mentally ill version of a joker yet. It was hard to watch I kept expecting it to get good. Plus to try and rewrite the history between the joker and Batman with this version of the joker story was just hard to buy. Maybe this is meant for people that don’t know any back story... either way I was really disappointed I had high expectations for this movie.
The #1 Rick and morty fan - 👍
‘twas a excellent experience
Boston Bud - Did it have to be made?
This film is very dark and didn't really have to be made. We don't need to sensationalize this kind of character and have people rooting for him. It is disturbing and senseless.
Yoel777 - Outstanding performance!
An outstanding performance by J/P.
tacotub - Incel garbage
Good acting can’t save a horrible movie
iPBJ89 - Fantastic and grounded achievement of WB/Phoenix
However, there’s very little Joker in the film to be had and felt too brief for its own good. Although the build up was well directed & exceeded where it counts.
jsua,anuemqna - joker
this movie is soo good i would rent it for the third time again just to watch it
Nukem18 - Must See
I think this movie was very well done. I like how it’s dark and gritty, while showing the effects of mental illness as well. I would like to see this continue into another movie as Bruce Wayne grows up and becomes Batman. It would be nice to see a dark and gritty Batman movie.
Jaxynho - Joker 💀
The best movie in 2019 ❤️
HistoryBuffer - Phoenix can't pull it off
The commercials looked great. Phoenix has never been a great actor. The movie was slow and weird. Then it became sick and demented. It never had a great Joker pull like Dark knight. I gave it a try and won't keep. I don't see how they rave about this sick more psycho than comic dark hero. Ending was pointless too. A city would never act this way.
Gj000 - Worse movie ever!!!
This movie was written by a psychopath. We don’t need these kind of movies influence our world right now or ever. Is this what the world has come to watch psychopath movies. It’s not worth the money, If you buy this movie something is seriously wrong with you.
AcidBurn36 - PERFECTION
THIS MOVIE WAS NOTHING LESS OF PERFECT ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I dont have a nickname? - Where’s the entertainment?
Movie completely let me down....There was so much more that the Joker could have been, regardless of his “condition”. Thanks Hollywood, but I expect more.
hnk4594 - CANT. STOP. WATCHING.
i swear i am strangely obsessed with this movie, i cant stop thinking about it
mellott124 - Fantastic Dark Movie
This was a great movie but definitely dark. I can see why some didn’t like it. This really should have won an Oscar.
Gabriel Hernandezo - The second best Joker movie ever
Greatest movie of 2019
0rgazm0 - A must see!!! Hands down better than expected
This interpretation of the jokers 🃏 was done so perfectly in the sense that the timeline is before he actually becomes the joker. The film really puts into focus some of the origins behind Gotham’s most fear villain and his early development. If you haven’t seen it watch it! once you have you will thank me 🔥🙌🎥
Ullah2013 - Amazing
Young s. - Phenomenal movie 🌟
Don’t listen to these snowflake critics and their sensitive reviews. This movie is a 2 hour perspective of how horrible someone’s life can be and how it can possibly drive them into madness those snowflakes who say it’s too violent, go cry somewhere else. This movie is about a psychopath named Joker who is driven to madness by society, what do you expect him to do, tickle people to death? Anyways this movie is an absolute masterpiece and a one of a kind performance by Joaquin i’d give this movie 10 out of 5 stars if I could.
absolem'sDreams - Shot in the dark
I found this to be amazingly engaging. Very dark, gritty performance and story. Thriller and drama combined, powerful acting that stages the Joker’s lunacy in the main actor’s own unique brand. This is not glorification of mental illness, but a retelling of Joker’s lead up to becoming who he is now. The most haunting aspect of this film is it can happen to anyone, be barely scraping by and still have worse things happen to you, even if you don’t deserve it. How sad, our main man couldn’t find love and comfort or a place in society until he manifested his own grandiose delusions.
jak3Nbake - Not on the hype train.
But I can see why one exists. Phoenix deserves his best actor win. But to be honest. Watching someone slowly go crazy is kind of boring. The end result will stick with you for quite sometime. But not much else before that.
The D4rwin - Wonderful
An absolute cinematic masterpiece. So much passion and heart. I loved it
potato the yeeter - Horrible
This movie was horrible wayy too much laughing throughout the whole thing and he just didn’t really seem like joker to me and why did it take 1hr35min+ for him to have his “ joker transformation “

this movie was fire
jwreyh - Wasn't terrible
Phoenix was great. Thats about it. A couple of hours of watching a poor bastard being kicked around with a climax that wasnt worth the wait. Sorry, it was very overrated.
lindor_skit - a real review
this movie in itself is a perfect interpretation of the joker. many people didn’t like it because of its take on mental illness and because it didn’t have as much action as they would have hoped. if you like the joker simply because of the action he brings to a movie, you don’t truly like the joker and this movie is not for you. the joker himself struggled with mental illness before he became what we know now as “the joker”. no one ever said this movie was meant to be action packed, it was meant to be an accurate take on his backstory (which it is). if you want an action packed film of the joker and you don’t care for his backstory then id recommend the dark knight. but if you want a movie with the best interpretation of the jokers backstory, this is the film for you. i genuinely enjoyed this movie i think it is a great new beginning to the joker and i cant wait to see the future joker movies.
ReverendLowDown - A dud
Don’t even bother
Sofia Hitchings - iconic
anyone who doesn’t think this movie is a masterpiece is delusional
SuperJacob0909 - OOOOOOOOOIH YEAAAH DONKEH

Reggie Bush baby 25 - Oscar winner
This is easily the most intense, insane, dark, yet amazing movie I saw all of 2019. Joaquin Phoenix was masterful. One of the most flawless performances I’ve ever seen. Not to mention, that score for the whole movie was beautiful and thoughtful! 11/10 would recommend.
ayoungheart - Rate the quality of movie, no comment of quality of the manuscript product or
Overall The lead Phoenix is the major achiever prides of Joker. Because his professional is not only in his experienced acting technique, his whole body cell were acting with his soul and spiritual of professional of movie production. Bio technology from Joker was another experience shown out of my reality life can seen. It is really too impressed my understand of it. From atmosphere designs, shooting designs, color designs, story creation idea, actors qualities, rhythm, sounds, music, dance, scenes outcome expectation, psycho expression, artificial performance, meaning, audience accepted age level, subject reasoning marketing etc, everything are professional and done right. If there is any part in the production was not care about audiences experiences, production movie would like an indoor room show. I wish this kind of production, which not to afraid of little terrify because it is truth, not to care about theirselves but care about audiences experience, not to speak too much but got reasoning like sisters or brother that kind of intelligently connection, it would exists and last forever in Hollywood production or every movie production further more for all human being or living things being. That would be really wonderful to our world.
All other names or taken - Simply Amazing
Was never really a fan of watching movies, couldn’t keep myself seated for an hour or two. But this one kept me down for the entire ride. My biggest regret with this movie was not watching it sooner.
bebopbaloogyboink - Don’t upset the DC Babies!
To be fair, to each their own.
I’m assuming all the bad reviews are from disgruntled tweens who like the TV show “Gotham“ or cookie cutter movies like “Aquamam” or “suicide squad”. They are young and just don’t yet know the difference between a film and a movie of the week always assuming they know better. Their approval of movies seems to require over the top action packed CGI and simplistic storylines... with a heavy helping of idiotic comic relief, as well as cool looking hero squads to plan their Halloween costume’s on. It’s not really their fault, it’s easier to hate than actually think. I know most people just want a simple “feel good movie” to watch in 3D on date night, it’s understandable to a degree, given the fact that the box office is totally oversaturated with these type of movies, but just like music is just background noise for some people, so is film. Again I must say to each their own, just don’t make lorikeet doubt a great film with bad reviews just because it wasn’t what was expected.
Now that’s out of the way.... here is what most people with a good range of taste in films thought.
This was the best DC film since “The Dark Knight” IMHO. Joker may even surpass all of the Gotham movies I’ve seen since growing up, Tim Burton’s Batman was one of my favorite movies from my childhood .
“Joker” had just amazing acting, casting, pace, bleak and poignant plot, and it’s minimalism / realism make a perfect dark commentary on life! As well as those whom the system has failed and really know what suffering is. Blurring the line between suicide and homicide, madness and freedom, J Phoenix did an amazing job in his realistic acting by bringing out Jokers slow decent into madness proving that The character Joker was a victim with his madness bringing him the freedom to accept his fate and truly a real villain, this was a great origin story for a great character done by a good directed and Amazing actor.
If you’re a fan of films that are truly Dark and dramatic like “Taxi Driver” or even “Requiem for a Dream” for example,
YOU WILL LOVE THIS FILM!, it’s a breath of fresh air in the suffocating 2D superhero or the Transformers type trash movies. It also will stick with you long after watching it.
If some people did a bit of research into the writer/ director and reviews beforehand they wouldn’t have been so surprised or angry. This is one many great films that held a mirror to the bleak reality of those who are actually living with mental illness & have slipped through the cracks of society. Showing how the hopelessness and desperate people out there can easily cross the fine line between suicidal and homicidal.
Just know beforehand what kind of film you are about to watch, do a bit of research beforehand into the writers & directors without holding such high expectations, it can make a huge difference. I was very happy to see a humanized “Villain” not some cheap cliche depending on mystical superpowers. It’s really a shame to miss this film, it’s honestly one of the few really good films out there with no need to blow up hospitals or rely on overdone hostage situations. In the DC/MCU Joker was one of the best films in a long time. Just look at the controversy it made, tweens thinking they know better than those who decide Oscar nominations. Don’t let their ignorance fool you. But like I said before personally I have always liked Dark themed films that are realistic and thought provoking, a lot of people do not and they are untitled to their opinions. Just don't their reviews stop you from watching these type of films.
Sorry to rant, I’ve watched Joker 3 times already and still I’m glad I have it on
Blu-Ray for when I’m in the mood.
Joe9074 - Very odd movie
This was a very odd movie. Mr. Phoenix is a perfect actor to play the role of someone who is mentally ill. I thought the movie moved slowly and had very few actors in it. The whole movie was about his mental illness. Kids definitely would have trouble relating to this movie as it seems to be targeted toward adults.
It was a very odd movie and was far-out. Got bored about 1 hour into it and turned it off....then went back to it after a rest.
Street Fighter X Tekken - Great
The movie was great, Joaquin’s performance was amazing. Everyone here giving bad reviews are pretending like they’re some sort of prestigious movie critic when in reality they’re just a bunch neckbeards crying over nothing. They knew what they were going into and still cry about it being too “depressing” or too “dark”.
301mattmatt - Too dark and depressing
