For the ending, they should of had it where music grew louder and louder, and the laughter gets softer and softer. To a point where all diegetic sounds were muted. Or just have the laughter muted all together, that would have still made it ambiguous.

What they should have done is show batman raising his hands to joker and cut to a black screen where all you can hear is both there laughter. It would leave the question unanswered and make it a good suspenseful ending.

You know, I've had a good long while to think this over. I've come to the conclusion that the first 1/3 of the movie had to happen. It wasn't to give us a Batgirl standalone movie. It was to give more impact to Barbara being shot and paralyzed. As a comic book, The Killing Joke had the advantage of a following that knows the characters inside and out already. You don't need to build that connection. But as a movie, especially if they are trying to appeal to the general public, you have to include some reason to care at the same level as the characters. Since Barbara's always been more of a side character, moreso than Robin, they really needed to build up that audience connection to her first. Otherwise, the gunshot doesn't have quite the same impact. At least, that's what I'm hoping their theory was. That at least there was some attempt at logic to that contrived mess.

RC Slyman They definitely were trying to do that, probably a studio mandate to have people who wouldn’t normally see this movie to go see it. Problem is they make it rated R, they get Bruce Timm to produce it but not direct nor write it, have the guy who’s been directing the fucking awful Justice League animated movies be the director, and cast people only fans would recognize. So what the fuck was the point of butchering an adaptation of you’re not gonna go all the way?

You can’t have your cake and eat it too. You can’t say you want things to be faithful to the comics, but you also want them to be different. I loved this movie after the killing joke starts because it was pretty much exactly like the comic. I don’t like nor do I want a new take. If you do want a new take, and if you do want producers to be creative, you can’t complain when they aren’t faithful to the source material. It makes no sense to me.

I'm remembering the Superman vs. the Elite animated movie WB made, which was based on a fairly short story from the comics, shorter than even The Killing Joke. Like TKJ, that movie had to add more to stretch out its runtime or else the entire movie would likely only have been about 30 minutes long. But while it was overall faithful to the comic, unlike TKJ this movie can't be just be cut into two separate stories. The movie expanded on what the original comic contained, giving us more time to get to know the Elite and even having them and Superman working together and getting along for the most part. It added a villain to the story, Atomic Skull, so it could explore more whether superheroes should play judge, jury, and executioner and even showing how the average normal person in this world feels about Superman's idea of justice vs. the Elite's. And it all leads up to an climax overall very faithful to the original story. Even if you personally don't care for Superman vs. The Elite (it's one of my favorite DC animated movies, but to each their own) it was a good adaptation, holding true to the ideas, themes, and overall plot of the original comic but adding new content where it needed to, not only to make it feel like an actual movie but to also expand on what the original had.

I can bear the first third for the brilliant remainder. There's certainly things that could be improved still. But I personally have just the movie version and discussion and clips of the comic to go on - I haven't gotten my hands on the full comic myself and don't have the dedicated connection, so I'm not starting out mad about any comparative shortcomings.

It did but it didn't. Brian Bolland's art in the comic made ever single panel feel like a panel. The art style of the cartoon felt like any regular Justice League Unlimited episode. I definitely thing that had a hand in why it didn't translate as well.

While there were obvious issues with the first third, like Batman and Batgirl bat-bonking and the writing being so drastically different it is pretty painful, I still enjoyed it. While not the best animated Batman film, it isnt the worst one.

Whilst I can see where you’re coming from critic, I disagree with one thing. The animation is not necessarily “a panel by panel copy” but more of a washed out copy. Lots of the colors, environments, shadows, and even imagery are gone or washed away. The artistic nature of the comic was stripped away from the audience thus not allowing us to think or go back to the movie to see things those may have never been able to understand upon a first viewing.

As much as I LOVEEEEE Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy they were the wrong cast for this movie. Mark Hamill in particular misinterpreted so many of Joker's lines. Michael Emerson was probably the better choice for this type of story. The voice direction was off-point too. This amateur fan who did his Mark Hamill impersonation for the line reading way before Mark Hamill did captured the scene FAR better job of understanding the source material than Mark Hamill did :( - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa0R_2K9iec.
