It’s that time of the year again when we would often get a superhero movie to satisfy our love for DC and Marvel but guess what, this year is different!
Don’t worry bats! We still love you. So when I say the name Joker, who really comes to your mind? Heath Ledger? Yeah, I won’t blame you cause he has indeed set the bar high for the character with his performance in the Dark Knight!
No offense Jared!
Ok now getting back to my point we have finally arrived at the day which was anticipated when the trailer of Joker(2019) portrayed by Joaquin Pheonix is released! So you really would want to read this and relax cause there are no spoilers in this! 🙂
To be honest when I went to watch the movie I was a bit concerned because DC has been getting criticized a lot lately but to say I wasn’t disappointed would be an understatement. The movie is made in such a way which would be sure to hit your heart cause it has new uptake on the Joker. Back in the old days when joker was created, it was because of the chemicals in which he fell in, but now it was created by the atrocities of the society.
Todd Philips and Scott Philips have done a very good job when it comes to the way the character is written. they portrayed the life of a common man who was busy making other people happy and was someone who forced a smile on his face despite the odds he faced but there is a twist in every story cause they took the phrase “All it takes is a one bad day” to another level.
Now for the acting part, to be honest I didn’t think Joaquin Pheonix was a good choice for the character but he proved me wrong. The dedication which he showed while playing joker reminded me of Heath Ledger and I think that it really does deserve an Oscar.
Joker has always been one of my favorite characters and I would say that the movie did him justice with the new uptake. The whole movie is dark and amazing but the last 15 minutes of the movie is beyond anything which I had ever seen cause it’s the point when everything seems to be coming together now. For it’s future the movie was intended to be a standalone and only one of its kind without a sequel but Todd Philips did say he would consider making a sequel depending on the films performance and if Joaquin Pheonix is interested to go another round.
So here’s my Final verdict-
Overall-9/10. I definitely smell an Oscar coming!
