100 Word Review – Batman: The Killing Joke

The graphic novel this is based on is one of the first Batman books I ever read. It was striking, pleasingly inconclusive and had a huge impact on the characters involved moving forward.

In comparison this film is a complete disappointment.

From the animation, to the voice acting, to the additional story elements, it’s a let down.

Rather than give Batman more motivation to go after Joker or make Batgirl a stronger character in the narrative, it only serves to undermine them.

Even Hamill and Conroy seem ill-fitting in this poorly judged attempt. The biggest mistake however was making it.
