Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Batman The Killing Joke doesn’t live up to the heights of previous DC animated films mostly due to the padding of having to convert a shortish graphic novel to a feature length film. That said when the somewhat misconceived Batwoman story is done and the Killing Joke clicks in, it delivers pretty much everything you’d want of an adaption of the seminal text with the additional benefit of some top notch voice casting once again. This is dark stuff and hopefully sets the tone for future adaptations to be more mature. Zack Snider take note. THIS is how you do gritty.
