Shares the few weaknesses of the short comic it is based on, but adds a bunch of its own new weaknesses to try and get it up to a theatrical runtime and justify its cinema release.
I think part of the reason the reception for _The Killing Joke_ has been so overwhelmingly negative is that the expectations were so high going in. But that wasn’t without cause. It sees the long awaited return of both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill to their famed DC roles, and the comic it’s based on is widely regarded as one of the better stories ever published by the company. And of these lofty expectations, _The Killing Joke_ falls short.
Hamill is great, and Kevin Conroy usually is as well. There are a couple of occasions that the latter slipped though. I don’t know if he’s rusty or just didn’t care, but his voice performance is not 100%. The story essentially meets that of its source material, but rather than expand the existing story, they chose to awkwardly force an entirely different one in beforehand, to the point that this is essentially two episodes of two different shows, rather than a single cohesive movie.
_The Killing Joke_ is a little gross and is not the return to form for DC Animation that we all had hoped it would be, but the final sequence is fantastic and I don’t know that the movie overall deserves quite as much vitriol as it has had.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
The first 30 minutes was wasted with Barbara being so annoying! I just didn’t see why that whole bit was thrown in when the movie itself is meant to center on the Joker.
Even with Mark Hamill’s final bow out as the iconic villain couldn’t save the film. Still, at least that joke at the end was a little amusing!
Other than that, they could’ve done better with the story.
One of DC’s worst blunders.
This movie is awful. As a stand alone movie, it’s weak and ineffective. As an adaptation, it’s a travesty.
What should be a deep, poignant movie that reflects on the nature of good and evil, why we become what we become, whether free will exists and other fascinating themes, becomes a lame action movie full of fan service, bad writing, bad characterization and terrible pacing.
This movie is doomed by a complete misunderstanding of what made the comic great, a bad writer and total lack of respect for its characters (especially Barbara Gordon).
Everything great about the comic was done poorly or taken out. And all the additions are awful.
A fan of the comic will hate it and a newcomer will just wonder why the hell the comic is considered a masterpiece, if this is the story people raved about for 30 years.
Animation is decent and voice acting is good, so I gave it a 4/10 out of respect for those things.
But this one of the worst things ever produced by DC.
What the hell was this?
I am not much into Batman, but I wanted to watch this because of all the hype of it being R-rated and because I liked the trailer. It is a bit longer than an hour and in it there are only defective people. The R-ratedness was not really something that I noticed, really. Maybe because I am from Europe. It just seemed a normal violent hero movie.
I could go into the Joker origin story, I could understand the senpai fixation of Bat-Girl, I could even get Batman’s uberdominant stance – I mean, it’s his signature mark. What I couldn’t get was the ending. It completely went as nuts as Joker himself and deconstructed the entire Batman universe.
Now here come mild spoilers: Batman almost wants to get killed walking calmly into what is clearly a trap, only to finally catch the Joker and then… he talks to him. The reason for it is because he knows at one time or another he will kill Joker or viceversa. But that pretty much dissolves the reason Batman does anything he does. If he knows jails won’t hold the Joker, why is he jailing him all the time?
The entire film underlines the futility of every character’s efforts and even life. Batman jails people only for them to always get away, Batgirl does things for the kicks and then she loses them, Joker doesn’t understand why a sociopath like him is the joke of the story and the other – Batman – is a hero, the gangsters go through the motions only to be foiled at the end, almost expecting it, and Gordon fails in everything: as a father, as a cop and as an upholder of order.
Bottom line: the joke at the end… it’s not funny. I feel it was intentional and therefore my analysis holds ground: this is a story that outlines the pointlessness of the Batman universe and if you look into the story of the writer, it may very well be what he had meant all along. The Killing Joke was supposed to kill Batman, the comic book.
