What we think

[Phillips] meanders in murky morals and faux philosophising about the terrible state of things, even roping in Robert De Niro – who also played a psychotic, wannabe stand-up in The King of Comedy – to lend his shallow work some weight.

What others think

This Joker has just one act in him: the first act. The film somehow manages to be desperately serious and very shallow.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
It tries desperately hard to come across as edgy, but coldly refuses to swerve from the hard-painted lanes of templated Hollywood filmmaking.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
Ideas-wise, it’s only slightly less superficial than so many other comic book movies, but on pure entertainment factor, it’s a thrill to watch.
Christina Newland Sight & Sound
It’s good enough to be dangerous, and bad enough to demand better.
David Ehrlich IndieWire
