Nah...ur review was pretty straightforward. And balanced, explaining both pros & cons of the film
This film feels done purely to symbolize how society could transform worthless ant into unstoppable force. And damn sure even from it's trailer, we could know this film wouldn't have any fun, joy or Marvel-esque humors.
Just 1 thing. How do you wanna like a character that commits crimes & murders? I know it's a work of fiction, merely an adaptation from DC comics & stuff. But back in 2013, Michael Bay made Pain & Gain, a film based on true story abt 3 criminals succeeding in life. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson alone somewhat made the film felt...relatable...both Mark & Antony Mackie we're obnoxious asshles dat don't give a fck abt killing ppl or other crimes. You simply cannot like these characters that are inspired from real-life prisoner's...it feels wrong on so many different levels
Joker is no different. At best, you may be amazed at the chaos he has inflicted to Gotham city & it's people. Or mind-boggled at multiple plans (say, Heath Ledger's Joker for instance).
Thanks bro. But I got like 99% dislikes on the video and super hostile comments that I don't even bother reading anymore haha...
Yeah you're right. I do mean "like" them as a villain, not morally. Same reason why Joker is so popular as a supervillain. The fans love him! I love certain portrayals of him too, of course.
In this film's case, I couldn't even like him before he committed any crime or even feel bad for him. Not because it's his fault or 'cause he's mentality ill, but mostly due to the writing and execution of the film.
I love character study films. And I don't mind* arthouse films either. But this film just feels tad bit pretentious to me.This post has been edited by tonYe: Sep 30 2019, 01:45 PM
