Batman_The_Killing_Joke.jpgJust finished watching Batman: The Killing Joke.  This is the newest out DC Universe Animated movie.  Which is based off the very famous 1988 graphic novel of the same name.  Have read that story years ago.  Forgot most of it so it was nice to relive in animation form.  The movie starts off differently than the novel.  Its starts with more backstory with Batgirl and her relationship with Batman.  That part of the story was very nice addition.  After that’s over, the story picks up for the graphic novel starts.  From there is it pretty much exactly as the novel.

As all ways the animation is top notch.  The voice acting was even better.  Because it has the two best actors very to play Batman and The Joker, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.  The big take ways from this movie is the backstory of The Joker and the ending.  The way it ends is very different then you would think.  Had to go back and look at the novel to see if it ends the same way, it does.  Over all this is a great movie.  But not one of their best.  Still worth watching.
