Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★½

Jojo rabbit has had a lot of praise, but if I’m honest I am struggling to see why. Sure the film has a lot of energy, and I can sort of see what it’s trying to do, but it fails to turn that energy into real conviction. 
There is the occasional funny moment here and there but it also feels like it’s trying to hard to be funny. 
This film has been out for a while now, and has built up quite a fan base in that time, that in turn puts my expectation level up, perhaps as a result I’ve gone in expecting too much from this, who knows!

The acting is pretty good, and it’s a decent cast. I am clearly in the minority with this one. It’s certainly a unique film, and whilst there’s nothing wrong with that something just really felt like it was missing. 

Not one that will last long in the memory for Duncs.
