I came across a New York Times article back in early 2016 while on a train ride on chemical pollution caused by DuPont that led to 'forever chemicals' becoming a part of almost all humans and resulting in serious health complications in some people. The article tells the story of a lawyer who stood against them for close to 15+ years and still pushing forward towards his goal. And, I wished that someone would make a movie about it. They did it in 2019. Thanks to the creators making this movie. Ruffalo is made for this kind of true-life inspired scripts. He can portray strength and genuine moments of vulnerabilities really well. The film tells what happens when you get poisoned by toxic chemicals/waste. You don't become a superhero or supervillain. You become really sick and die.
I knew the story but still, the screenplay and the storytelling was engaging which kept me on the edge.
It was amazing but not as deep as expected. It is a solid origin story for the agent of chaos. No comparison to the other Joker iterations should be made because it would be an insult to Phoenix's stellar performance. So, I won't.
For all of those who are crying wolf that this movie is going to drump up violence. It is a movie and nothing more. If someone wants to be violent they can take inspiration from anything and everything.
It is a beautiful mess. Most of the effects from the 80s still hold up and it looks so surreal. Lynch has always been off-road with his approach to films and tv series. This film is no exception. But, I wish he had worked on the script a bit longer. The story is a bit muddled but not as bad as some people say it turned out.
I would still give it an okay rating because of the visually stunning presentation.
Gun-Fu at its best. Mr Reeves has made it into an art form. The change of locale was a bit nice. The Wick-world is getting fleshed out well in this sequel.
This is my favourite superhero movie ever. Action, comedy and violence done with a stylistic choreography.
