    It's incredibly funny. It's incredibly heartbreaking. Its incredibly thought provoking. It's incredibly well cast and, it's incredibly well acted by everyone involved. The subject matter may not be to everyones taste but Waititi never diminishes the severity or danger of fascism at the expense of a cheap laugh. Scarlett Johansson turns in a particularly enjoyable performance as the ‘beating heart' of the story; providing humour, unconditional love and a much needed moral compass however, it's the younger actors that really steal the show. Roman Griffin Davis and Thomasin Mackenzie carry the film as few their age (or of any age group really) are capable of doing; whether it's comedy or tragedy these two effortlessly draw you in and hold you in the palm of their hand whilst, Archie Yates steals every scene he is in with impressive comic timing and adorably innocent naivety. The story and directing style have hints of Wes Anderson but, this remains very much a Taika Waititi movie. The writer/director/actor seems to be able to create magic with every thing he puts his mind to; whether it's spoof vampire documentary's, superhero movies or, adorably quirky indie style flicks like this; Waititi is a person who can do no wrong at this moment in time. I believe worthwhile art should always make you feel something and, this movie will unapologetically punch you in all the feels. Go see it.

    The ultimate juxtaposition: a truly positive, life-affirming story...with Nazis. Taika Waititi has certainly proven that he has a lot of material up his sleeve, and this is another of his greats. I loved this movie more than I thought I would. It is incredibly funny, clever, and insightful...Sharp metaphors and terrific performances galore...This movie really must be seen to be believed. Very highly recommended.

    Way too sanitized version of history. Hitler comes off as a goofy uncle rather than a muse toys psychopath

    A movie with heart. The child actors are superb, and there are many funny moments. Great casting, great script, really touching in the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Humour and nazism is a combination that not always works well. Thanks god we have Mel Brooks and Woody Allen, but Taika Waititi add some tenderly and the most important: child's view. But not a poetic view, but rather a playful vision, more childish in a cartoon style. And what a soundtrack!

    One of the best movies I saw this year. Scarlett Johansen was riveting.
