Movie Review: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

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.

So, I was thrilled when I saw the trailer, and I can pleasantly tell you – I wasn’t disappointed, at all.

Jojo Rabbit is witty, full of sarcasm that is extremely conscious, never offensive and always brilliant. Pack up all your political correctness before you jump into this.

I have personally enjoyed, laughed and cried throughout the movie. It was such an exciting film to see come out, when everyone is trying to produce superhero big films in the theatres.

Jojo Rabbit is 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.

Personal score: 9/10

Movie currently plays in the UAE & the GCC in cinemas near you.
