What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky It has great performances, it’s expertly put together, and it’s simply and quite undeniably incredibly absorbing. It’s also worth seeing just to debate its questionable conclusions.
Leon van Nierop JOKER is ‘n uitmuntende, selfs geniale, rolprent deur Todd Phillips, wat jou sal destabiliseer, en jou dae later nog mag teister. Ten spyte van sy hoë puntetoekenning moet jy daarop let dat dit nie ‘n Avengers- of Batman-superheldfees is nie. Dis ‘n gruwelreis reguit in die hel in met ‘n grynslaggende mombakkies, wat jou onderbewussyn vir nagte lank mag teister.
Tomatometer Joker gives its infamous central character a chillingly plausible origin story that serves as a brilliant showcase for its star -- and a dark evolution for comics-inspired cinema.

Jeffrey M. Anderson Bleak, violent, powerful; not your typical comic book movie.
