It is the latter part of World War II, and all Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) wants is to become a Nazi. He turns to his 10-year-old imagination and begins to befriend a wackier version of Nazi Germany’s ruler, Adolf Hitler. One day, he finds out that his mother, Rosie (Scarlett Johansson), is housing a Jewish girl named Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie). Despite going directly against his young beliefs, he has no choice but to keep quiet for his and his family’s safety. Soon, he and his imaginary friend begin to see the world differently.

This is an excellent 4K movie. The visual effects will impress any enthusiastic movie aficionados. The story is well written, and the actors are best of the best, in every scene.This will easily go in the collection, of great movies. Thank you Best Buy.
If you dislike darkly humorous movies about WWII Germany (Inglorious Ba——, Life Is Beautiful), this movie is probably not for you. For the first part of the movie, we’re introduced to a young boy who’s an aspiring Hitler youth who has a certain Adolf as his imaginary friend. After a while, I started thinking that this couldn’t stay like this for over 2 hours! Well, don’t worry, it doesn’t! New elements are introduced ( I won’t say what) that bring a new angle into the situation. We get some really amusing moments mixed with some highly emotional ones (at least one that’s gut wrenching) in a creative movie like no other (with plenty of excellent actors). My guess: There won’t be a sequel. If I could, I’d give this 4.5 stars, but comes highly recommended for anyone who can go for the darker humor I mentioned earlier.
Great movie, although it touches on a very hard time in our history and tries to add some comical elements to it, they have managed to do a great job of combining these. Absolutely recommend this movie to anyone that wants to learn more about what happened during that period, although probably not a real life story, the overall concept is something that did occur during that period.
Jojo Rabbit is not the first film to approach the subject of WWII era Germany and the Holocaust with humor, but it does so in a uniquely effective way. Some criticized the film as being overly simplistic and not biting enough in its satire, but I think those critics don't understand what the film is actually trying to do and miss some of the complexities of how it accomplishes this. It may be the fault of the marketing and some of the writer/director's comments in labeling it as satire as that term has come to suggest a sort of edge that the movie isn't really aiming for, but I think it's important to accept a piece of art on its own terms.
Jojo Rabbit does a tremendous job of showing how even basically decent people can be driven to commit unspeakably evil and hateful acts through misinformation and pressure from the people and institutions they trust. The titular character is an innocent boy who has been taught to revere Hitler and all the dictator stands for, doing so unquestionably. As is often the case, it's not until he actually meets a Jewish person and is forced to reckon with the incongruity of what he has been told and who this person really is that he begins to question his beliefs and let go of the hate injected into him. At a time when it's easy to dismiss people who commit hateful acts as beyond redemption, it's nice to have a message put out there suggesting that even though it's hard, and sometimes impossible, it's always worth trying to reach those seemingly irredeemable people.
On top of all of that, this is also an incredibly funny, imaginative, and heartbreaking piece of cinema. It juggles so many seemingly disparate tones, creating a singular experience that's well worth seeking out. The 4k presentation is excellent and there's added value in also receiving a Blu-ray disc and digital copy.
The biggest surprise of 2019 seemed to come from some alternate reality of craziness: “Jojo Rabbit”, a World War II comedy that tells of the coming of age of a 10-year-old German boy of the Hitlerjugend whose imaginary playmate is his idol Adolf Hitler (played by the writer/director Taika Waititi). There’s lots of hilarity (some of it priceless in its satirical silliness) but what surprises beyond the wild inventiveness of the storytelling is the underlying serious reality of the horrors of the fascist regime that at unexpectedly moments unearths profound emotional responses in the viewer. Quite frankly, I often found myself laughing one minute and crying the next. The acting is uniformly excellent, especially Sam Rockwell as the one-eyed training camp captain and Scarlett Johansson as the boy’s unfailingly dauntless mother, but it is really Roman Griffin Davis who steals the film as the boy Johannes who earns the disparaging nickname ‘Jojo Rabbit’ when he finds he can’t obey an order from Rockwell to kill a rabbit with his bare hands. Brilliantly edited, it may not be as polished as the usual by a master filmmaker but it more than compensates for it by its inspired creativity and emotional resonance which are the main reasons I love this film as much as any of 2019. Don’t let its wacky title fool you: this is a little gem you won’t easily forget
A:AnswerAll of Disney's 4K releases are called "Ultimate Collector's Edition" just because the 4K/Blu-ray/Digital combo pack is considered the best combo, regardless of bonus content. Unfortunately, there are no additional bonus features on the 4K edition.
