Manages to somehow be one of the most raw and confronting looks at various aspects of WWII I've ever seen, and yet also often genuinely very funny. I'm not sure if that's really something that you should do... But Taika did anyway, and I loved it. Final rating:★★★½ - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time.

Funny, light-hearted and delightful, Jojo Rabbit is a charming, and at times poetic, celebration of friendship, romance and peace, and a cheerful ode to our capability, and bravery, to save and love beyond boundaries.

A hilarious piece of political satire that isn't afraid to be serious The great danger of lying is not that lies are untruths, and thus unreal, but that they become real in other people's minds. Christine Leunens; Caging Skies (2004) We live in dangerous times. In this era of political regression, racists, xenophobes, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white separatists, and fascists, once confined to the periphery of civilised society, have wormed their way back into the cultural mainstream, preaching hate and intolerance under the guise of terms such as 'nationalism' and 'pa... read the rest.

'Your mother took me in. She's kind. She treats me like a person.' Taika Waititi is on a roll recently and rightfully so, because he's got a great comedic vision. 'Jojo Rabbit' is a World War II satire that's both hilarious and surprisingly tragic. Joy, terror, love, hate all in one movie. Waititi knows how far to take a joke and how humor can put on light on ugly issues. While absurd looking on the surface, but on a deeper look it's something unique. Newcomers Roman Griffin Davis and Thomasin McKenzie take center stage upon the big cast. Their comedic timing, emotional range and over... read the rest.

If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog @ https://www.msbreviews.com Taika Waititi delivers one of those films I absolutely love for the exact same reasons some people deeply hate it. His seamless balance between comedy and war drama makes Jojo Rabbit a thought-provoking yet hilarious depiction of how ridiculous Hitler's followers were. Roman Griffin Davis offers one of the best young performances of the millenium, and the rest of the cast is pitch-perfect. There's a lot of laughs, but also a lot of heart. Still, be warned: if you're easily offended, this movie i... read the rest.

Thought the first 35-40 minutes to be rather dull and unfunny, however the rest really brought the film together and made the first part make more sense what Waititi was doing. Some nice moments with Davis and McKenzie although can't say I fell in love with this, but still glad I watched. 3.5/5

Where this film may have missed the mark for some people is in its comedy, insofar as audiences expect a certain depth of humour from Waititi's films. Nevertheless, Jojo Rabbit is tremendously endearing, especially through the titular character's innocent portrayal by actor Roman Griffin Davis. Its poignant ending—the last scene of which I'd rewinded about 5 times—brought a smile to my face. Likewise, the appended Rilke quote seals the film as a tremendous work of art.

Jojo Rabbit is wild. Heart-warming yet heart-breaking. Laugh-out-loud funny yet nerve-racking. This film is crazy good and offensively amazing. Please don't feel guilty for laughing, just enjoy the show.
