It is more like a couple of episodes from a Saturday morning cartoon than it is a movie. Even with its R rating it doesn't draw the same toughness the novel does. And I get what they tried to do or felt they had to do as far as making it a complete experience as a 75 minute film. Mit den Bildern dieser Schreckenstat versucht der Superschurke, den aufrichtigen Gordon in den Wahn zu treiben. It more about proving a point.
Ps: English is not my first language, so don't mind the mistakes. As an adaptation, it's a travesty. I do not understand how someone can justify giving this movie a theatrical release. Strong start, love it, some good action, funny moments. But still, like I said, as soon as the actual movie starts, it's great. Instead, it felt almost as If Barbara Gordon was the main character. While, this part of the film is undoubtedly the worst from a storytelling standpoint, there are a number of things that remained consistently bad throughout.
If they didn't want to just do a direct adaptation of the novel because it'd be too short, I get it, but find another way to expand it. It has a great studio behind it, an excellent voice team, and a brilliant story. So I got comfortable and watched, hoping to be 'disturbed. But it lacks the emotional power that the novel has. I thought it was going to be For some stupid reason exactly like the graphic novel.
Otherwise, if you appreciate an honest review you can keep reading. Obviously, it could've been in production long before it was announced back at the beginning of the year, but after seeing the film, I don't think that's the case. Which is not by choice. But I wanted you to know before the horror began, before it all came crashing down, there was a time when capes and cowls and fighitng crime really was exciting. It's like they read the source material and decided to make a 90s animated show about it, only less pretty.
This movie is doomed by a complete misunderstanding of what made the comic great, a bad writer and total lack of respect for its characters especially Barbara Gordon. Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is more of a plot device in the comic spoiler? One of the most acclaimed graphic novels of all time has now come to the big screen. I am a Batman fan. This issue becomes even more clear whenever it attempts 3D animation. Hamill and Conroy were obviously great.
This mainly has to do with the length of the film itself. She doesn't matter, she's irrelevant to the story. For me, this had to do with the complete lack of any emotional resonance. This is one film that should have been great. It didn't add anything to the movie at all. As a stand alone movie, it's weak and ineffective. There are kid friendly Batman animated movies that are a million times better than this 1.
It's tacked-on and certainly doesn't do Batgirl or Batman any favors the latter of whom just seems a tad creepy. From a studio like Warner Bros you'd expect some decent art work, but not here. Obviously it has some disturbing scenes, but that's what make this movie intense. Being only 80 minutes, it's rather short. I guess it's true, the book is always better than the movie.
Während sich der Dunkle Ritter erfolglos auf die Spurensuche nach dem verrückten Killer-Clown begibt, überfallt der Joker Comissioner Gordon und verletzt dabei dessen Tochter Barbara alias Batgirl, sodass sie fortan an einen Rollstuhl gefesselt ist. The intentions were there, but it could've been done better. And this segment of time is absolutely the worst to sit through. I would never have considered watching it but for the voice talents of Hamill and Conroy. Joker wants to prove a point and as always he fails.
