I love Joker as a character. I love Joaquin Phoenix as an actor. But I’m not convinced that I like Joaquin Phoenix as Joker. I am also questioning the fact that the writer of 8 Mile wrote this and the director of The Hangover series is directing it. I’m not saying they are unable to make a decent movie but I think they have a lot to prove.
I think it is too hard to make an absolute judgment based on trailers alone. This trailer definitely shows promise but it is definitely something that needs to be seen in theaters with an open mind and a willingness to like it. We’ll see how it turns out.
6/10 – Decent
