    Watched it this evening. Fantastic film. Echo majority on here, very dark but throughly gripping and enjoyable to watch.

    Superb acting, if he doesn’t get an Oscar for best male lead, it’s going to be a monumental performance from someone to take it out

    We get the first comic book film in years that isn't just another generic fun for all the family flick and something that actually makes you think.

    And it gets over the top analysis like that.. Obscure references to crimes that hardly anyone outside of New York would be aware of. And the usual obsession in the US media with linking everything to race politics, Trump, Clinton and of course gun laws.

    The article is more depressing than the film.

    The film's been over analyzed since the second it came out.

    I think the author here has gone too far to make a point, but the conclusion is matches what my viewing experience had been like.


    I thought the film was blunt and empty. There's no real depth beyond the kind of angst I'd expect from a teenager. The entire film screams, 'I'm a victim!' and that's why it was so relatable to so many.

    Haven't read it but if this is true then that article is VERY depressing. I saw the film as I usually do, in a cheery mood. Came out feeling dirty, unwashed and muttering like Eeyore. It's well acted but fucking hell, depressing. Not for me.

    If you are going to do a back story movie, at least give us some redeeming features, something that makes us sort of root for the bad guy, not throw depressing segments after depressing segments at the watcher. Otherwise it slowly chips away at you.

    It's also over hyped, in the same way La La Land was, which means it will win big in the awards.
