Trivia

Mark Hamill admitted at a Q&A at Star Wars Celebration in London 2016 that while he wasn't disappointed with the final outcome of the film, he wasn't as completely satisfied as he hoped to be. He also stated he had originally intended and would have preferred to have completed the story as an audio book, not a full animated feature. See more »

Quotes

The Joker: Yes, memory is so treacherous. One moment you're lost in a carnival of delight, childhood aromas, the flashing neon of puberty, all that sentimental candyfloss. The next, it takes you somewhere you don't want to be. Somewhere dark and cold, filled with damp, ambiguous-shaped things you'd rather forget. Memories can be vile, repulsive little brutes. Like children, no?

Not bad, but not great
30 July 2016 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

The complete first half hour was completely unnecessary, it may have intended to add emotional weight to when Barbara got shot, but the studio could have encapsulated that in a much better way. The main antagonist of the film failed to show up until half way through the movie which made the first half utterly boring. In addition, the needless sexualization of Batgirl and her 'special' relationship with Batman was also among the list of unnecessary items that were in this movie, this also contributed to ruining the characterization of Batman. The Joker was on point as one would usually expect. However, in summation the movie fails to capture the magic that the comic presented us with.
