On the DVD commentary track, the actors note that Tim Curry’s characterization of Pennywise was so creepy and realistic that everyone avoided him during the filming.

Rave reviews of JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT’s performance in The DARK KNIGHT RISES:
(Note: THESE DO NOT CONTAIN SPOILERS, but many of the full reviews that I’ve linked do contain spoilers for the film.)Last, and certainly not least, is fellow Inception-alumnus Joseph Gordon-Levitt. To say anything specific about his role is to give away integral parts of the movie. Suffice to say, he is by far the best supporting character of any of the three Nolan Batman films, eclipsing that of the venerable Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth.IGNAs Blake, Gordon-Levitt is earnest without being blandHerald SunJoseph Gordon-Levitt is equally impressive as an idealistic young cop on the riseMSN.COMGordon-Levitt is perfectly understated as the principled everyman who rises to the occasion without fuss or showmanship. If Nolan’s Inception pushed Gordon-Levitt towards the leading-man A-list, this could be the final nudge he needs.Rolling Stone…idealistic young cop John Blake (a sensationally good Joseph Gordon- Levitt)Huffington PostJoseph Gordon-Levitt adds a youthful presence as John Blake, an up-and-coming member of the police force who inspires Bruce to revisit his own childhood as an orphan. Gordon-Levitt as solid as alwaysScreen DailyGordon-Levitt first worked with Nolan on Inception, and he’s such a likeable, empathetic presence that one feels John’s vulnerability as he tries to live up to the image of goodnessAwards CircuitJoseph Gordon-Levitt is superb as a decent young cop devoted to right, not unlike Gordon in his youthABC NewsGordon-Levitt is every bit the actor Christian Bale is and seeing him and Bale go toe-to-toe is thrilling, if you’re into that great acting sort of thing.Badass DigestRunner up for MVP is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. John Blake is a do-gooder cop whose personal journey is the most dramatically interesting thing in the film. Levitt takes Blake from rookie to heroGQ UK5. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a very good day at the office as John Blake. He makes such a good action hero: the lone cop who believes in the discredited Lt Gordon that you start to believe he would make a better alternative to the costume clad Wayne. Whether it be attempting to save a bus full of orphans (yes, this is a comic book adaptation) or running through a hospital with a shotgun, Gordon-Levitt hasn’t looked this good since Inception.ScotsmanJoseph Gordon-Levitt’s virtuous rookie cop is the stand-outThe WrapGordon-Levitt takes what could have been a flatly earnest flatfoot and imbues him with a real sense of purpose and passionEW…the character who lingers longest in memory is an average Gotham City cop named John Blake, wonderfully played with human-scale clarity by Joseph Gordon-LevittReel ViewsJoseph Gordon-Levitt is a welcome addition, proving that it is possible to inject new blood into an established mythologyMercury NewsJoseph Gordon-Levitt gives a wonderful performance as young police officer John Blake, who plays a big role in the film.Faster Timesthe most promising of these is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as a clever beat cop, looking good and growing into the movieCity WeeklyGordon-Levitt brings a relatable human touch.Screen CrushJoseph Gordon-Levitt is a surprisingly convincing badass as John Blake … JGL is as good here as he’s been in anything he’s ever done. He’s one of the finest true young movie stars we’ve got right now.LA TimesJoseph Gordon-Levitt, who brings welcome texture to the role of the idealistic Gotham cop John BlakeMiami.COMFor all its pomp and grandeur, though, The Dark Knight Rises is practically stolen outright by Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John BlakeHollywoodGordon-Levitt gives additional oomph to his detective-with-a-heart-of-gold,JOBLOThankfully, the rest of the cast is equally impressive including Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an idealistic police officer who sees past the corruption that surrounds himUSA TodayJoseph Gordon-Levitt is affably noble as dedicated police detective John BlakeSalonand the reliably terrific Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an idealistic young copCinemablendJoseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Gotham Police Officer John Blake, continues to establish himself as one of the best young actors in Hollywood. Though we are only introduced to Blake for the first time in this movie, Gordon-Levitt infuses him with a strength and richness of character that makes us feel like he has been in the series the entire timeBlu-Ray.COMAlso triumphant is Gordon-Levitt as BlakeNewsaramaBut he’s a worthy addition to Nolan’s world and Gordon-Levitt continues to mature as a movie star. The once long-haired adolescent from 3rd Rock from the Sun continues to announce himself as a major Hollywood presence.Hero ComplexFor those of us who followed Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career from “3rd Rock From the Sun,” there’s no doubt that he has come into his own.
