Jojo Rabbit

Critics Consensus

Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault.

Movie Info

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

Critic Reviews for Jojo Rabbit

All Critics (408) | Top Critics (53) | Fresh (324) | Rotten (84)

  • Taika Waititi's film is tender, daring, and sharp -- precisely pitched so that it keeps its path steady and its ambitions in check.

    January 10, 2020 | Rating: 5/5
  • The tonal shifts in Jojo Rabbit don't work because they're not seriously intended, the intention here being instead to remain consistently cute.

    January 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Jojo Rabbit is many things, well-intentioned among them. Brilliant it is not.

    December 31, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Jojo Rabbit is bold in its inversion of expectations and its reimagining of a familiar subject. There's nothing trivial about it.

    December 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A pointless Hitler-spoofy YA adventure with a 12A certificate, obtusely accentuating little-kid cuteness and optimism amid the quaintly imagined non-horror.

    December 20, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A staggeringly ill-conceived satire that completely fails to explore its own premise.

    Taika Waititi cuts his own trail in this light touch look at the forces of social indoctrination and how one allows one's own identity to be formed. Set in the end of WW2 Nazi Germany, our young hero's course is set for him by perhaps the worst of a badgering throng since the dawn of history. The actors, following the director/writer's lead, are appropriately funny, tender and simply human when called to be in what all recognise as intense times. While not necessarily the nail-biter one would hope for, still endearing and not a waste of time, avoiding the boredom one might expect in a setting as over-mined as this one is.

    Surprisingly good. Especially after considering that I'd given up on Holocaust & WWII theme and decided not to watch any movie about them. The kid and the director (in the little role he got) have given award winning performances. Sam Rockwell was par excellence. Rest of the cast was also good.

    If you're looking for a charming indie coming-of-age dramedy in unusual circumstances, this is a very good pick. If you're looking for something daring, new, which elevates the medium and asks bold questions, look elsewhere. When this was advertised, we all saw it as "Taika's Hitler movie" and I think a lot of people were prepared for something on a Sacha Baron Cohen level of distaste, maybe similar to The Dictator. But that's not what this is, it's actually a low key, charming, even quirky little movie about a boy whose beliefs are challenged through conversation and relationships. It's a worthwhile message shown in the most extreme of circumstances. It's charming and likable, at times hilarious, and other times heartbreaking. It's two leads shine and elevate the whole thing, and of course Taika as Hitler is amazing. If I have a major criticism it's that I wanted more Taika, but really this isn't his movie, it's Jojo's, it's just Taika is an admittedly scene-stealing part of that story. But the story is still good. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it tells its story well and

    Jojo Rabbit appeared to be a film that was ambitious and not for my taste, but the reviews started piling in. This honestly felt like a Wes Anderson film, only that Taika Waititi maintains his own style and demonstrates the range he has to offer as an actor and filmmaker. This film is incredible and was added to my top 9 films of 2019. It's hard to talk about the film without giving too much away, but you're missing out if you haven't visited the film yet. Strong acting and a strong emphasis on dark humour, as the film treads carefully on the rope. I honestly don't feel another filmmaker could've tackled this film and Waititi should take a step away from the Marvel films and create his own niche in the market. 03/02/2020
