Now I fully understand that some people will enjoy this film. If you are really patient, don’t mind long dialogues about CIA conspiracies, or government jargon, then this film is all yours. I, for one, am done with this franchise. I’ll stand by my claim that Matt Damon needs to just drop the Bourne movies and do a comic book movie with Ben Affleck. (Watch My Top 5 Matt Damon Comic Characters video here) You can go watch this movie if you want to, but don’t expect to be wow’d the same way you were with the first couple of films. You can absolutely wait for this to watch at home. Why? Because at least you’ll have the comfort of your own couch or bed right there waiting for you.
I found it rather difficult to critique this movie because it really didn’t divert away from the original Batman: The Killing Joke comic book. Some people apparently have some issue with a certain scene involving Batman and Batgirl. In my opinion, it was nothing short of what many suspected for decades anyway.
If you’re a comic fan, then your enjoyment of this film will more than likely depend on how you enjoyed the comic. If you’re unfamiliar with the 1980’s comic, then I’m not sure this film will be as well received as other Batman animated films. There isn’t the same level of action and suspense, so some audiences may feel a bit under served. Personally, I enjoyed the film simply because I’ve always found the weird relationship and the deeper meaning between the Joker and Batman to be fascinating.
