“Director Phillips, best known for the inane HANGOVER movies, wants to show he can be serious and profound, but has bitten off more than he can chew.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This version of The Joker that we get is okay, but the movie around him needed to be much stronger.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“The chance to do something great gets lost as deep thoughts about the human condition gets truncated to make room for a checklist of the character’s canon requirements.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine
