Anyone seen it? I enjoyed it, very disturbing film.
I saw it. It was pretty good. I thought it was going to be a "villain as hero" flick, kind of like Thanos in Infinity War. But it's not quite that. Arthur, the main character, is pathetic but I didn't find him sympathetic, if that makes any sense. I enjoyed watching the story unfold, but I never found myself rooting for the guy. He's a lot like Travis in Taxi Driver. You get why he's doing what he's doing, but you want him to stop doing it.

Worth the price of a ticket, in my opinion.

I agree, it was pretty good :)

And it does have one awesome scene (obviously the one near the end, with Deniro becoming more open-minded  := )

Uh, spoilers, please? This is exactly the sort of thing that ruins a movie.

I had a chance to see this, and I've gotta say that it exceeded expectations.  Really glad I saw it.  I'm no DC fanboy, I actually don't like much that DC does, but this was done right.

I think that it gains points also due to being better than "superhero" movies. Besides, this had no superhero.
I can't say I found this to be an awesome movie, but I did like it. Besides, I am not really a fan of many movies to begin with... not my medium at all.
