What’s good about this film? Very little. Mark Hamill came out of retirement to do The Killing Joke and I get why with the gravity of the project, but his performance (while good, as always) can’t save this ship. It was at the bottom of the Atlantic before he ever came aboard. Even the post production on this film is shoddy work. The decision to put Barbara Gordon’s story first means we are treated to Barbara doing narration for the first half of the film, then brought to an abrupt stop after her assault, leaving the rest of the film without the previously established narration and even more lifeless than before. Even the animation isn’t even up to standard that DC animated films are currently running at, where there are times it looks more like it was created 15 years ago more than within the year.
