Batman: The Killing Joke 
Half of the Best Adaptation
2/4 stars

Based on one of the most interesting examination of the relationship between Batman and The Joker. I had read this comic before and admired it's seriously adult take on the two opposing psyches of it's main characters. Some of that is present in this (mostly) faithful adaptation of the classic story. Most of the dialogue and panels are lifted directly from the source material. The whole intent of the narrative is still intact, with some minor helpful adjustments for translating into a full-on animated piece. The voice acting - from alumni's of the outstanding 90's animated series - is terrific. It's pretty much everything a straight-forward adaptation should be. Wait, I'm speaking of the second half of this film. There's a first half of brand new material used specifically as a means to service the character of Batgirl, who only showed up briefly (to tragic effect) in the original 'Killing Joke'. This extra plot is an entirely separate entity that adds nothing to the 'Killing Joke' story. It feels like to short episodes played back-to-back. What's worse is that this Batgirl centered plot is sub-par. It makes unnecessary changes to her character and gives us a much confusing layer to her working relationship with Batman that I did not like at all. The fact that all of this came from the same men behind my favorite animated series of all time gives me a sour taste. If you are a fan of the material, I recommend skipping the first 30 minutes entirely.
