Batman: The Killing Joke 2016

Barbara and Bruce? Why? Makes no goddamn sense and completly changes Batmans motivations.

In the first half of the film I was very surprised to see the bad reviews on this film. But by the end of the film I could see why. I can't say much without spoiling anything, but the unnecessary playtime, highlighting characters that you don't really need to know about or if you did didn't connect with the whole Joker story. Regardless, I rated this film an 8, because of the very talented animation and (with the help of a R rated) helped the "adult" version of a Batman vs. Joker work out. I loved this film in the end, finally seeing the dark history of the Joker and how he became "crazy".

So that's what happened to Barbara. Always wondered how she ended up in the chair. The ending with the Joker and Batman just having a laugh really caught me off guard. Brilliant.

The punchline is a little off, but overall this is an okay Batman flick with a surprisingly adult edge for an animated feature.

I don´t know the comics. Maybe that´s a good think because I enjoyed it.

I don't think too many comic book fans were looking for an animated adaptation of The Killing Joke and it works out about as good as it can considering how hard the material is to recreate. You can read the graphic novel quicker than you can finish the movie and its a way better ride. I don't think the Barbara Gordon intro story was that bad apart from the fact that it didn't need to be there and had no impact on the story that came after. Make sure you've read the comic first before you even consider this animated movie.

Well the first part is not too usefull, but the second part is very good. So this is not bad but I expected more.

Learning that Azarello had done the writing (I have a lot of confidence in him after his run on Hellblazer - not exactly my favorite run, but still pretty solid), and that Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill were reprising their roles as Batman and the Joker, I already knew I would likely be a good one. Still, I was afraid that they would fuck up the ending, which might be interpreted as being ambiguous in the comic by some. But the story in the beginning made it so it would work both ways, and still they left the ending the way it was in the comic.

I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I hadn't read the comic - this is the problem with the adaptation being faithful to the original material, but, overall, a decent effort.

Hence the rating - 8/10 "Great"

Not bad at all. Basically true to the novel. Mark Hamill is awesome as The Joker HAHAHAHHAHAHA!

This was just terrible. The story all over the place. The ending was such a joke (pun intended).

Batman fighting bad guys? Nope, batman and batgirl soap opera.

Pretty good, the original text holds up... the added stuff..

Well the Barbara, and Bruce thing was better handled than I thought it'd be but the camera kinda skeeved me out at times, and not when it was trying too

A little short. While the first part was about Batman and Batgirl stopping a spoiled rich guy and his thugs. Joker was basically just shoved in the second half.
Then we get a bunch of Joker flash backs where he was normal with a pregnant wife. Joker does some horrible things in current time. Batman wants revenge, Gordon says not kill Joker. Batman tries to befriend the Joker. The Joker tells Batman a joke, they both have a laugh. The End ?
Yeah those are big spoilers but those are all reasons why this movie was disappointing and didn't live up to the hype. While some have had a problem with Batgirl getting with Batman as well.
I found Batman giving in to a hot redhead on his lap kissing him more believable than him having a laugh with the Joker though.
