The seminal graphic novel written by Alan Moore (Watchmen) that ushered in a new, darker spin on The Dark Knight is adapted for the screen in this animated feature. The Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill) launches his most diabolical assault ever upon Commissioner Gordon (Ray Wise) and his family, including his daughter Barbara Gordon (Tara Strong). It's up to Batman (Kevin Conroy) to stop this madman in his tracks - but in doing so, he'll realize how he and his arch nemesis are very much the same. Extras include featurettes, bonus cartoons, sneak peeks and more.~Violet LeVoit

Batman: The Killing Joke [Includes Digital Copy] [Blu-ray/DVD] 
Let's get the obvious out of the way: This is an adaptation of one of the most influential Batman stories with Kevin Conroy voicing Batman and Mark Hamill voicing The Joker. That alone is worth the price of admission.
The adaptation itself is done extremely well, but The Killing Joke isn't a very long graphic novel, so they decide to add something of a prelude to it. Most of that prelude works fairly well with Batgirl, Barbara Gordan, pursuing a criminal who is becoming obsessed with her. Batman identifies this and forbids her from getting involved. The whole set up and story of her and the criminal is an early parallel to the eventual "relationship" between Batman and Joker, one of obsession.
Where the prelude gets extremely weird is a one night stand between Batman and Batgirl. It's awkward, out of place, and just creepy considering Batgirl is Commissioner Gordan's daughter and has historically been in a sometimes relationship with the original Robin with Batman acting as a type of surrogate father to both of them.
I suppose since it ties into the Batman animated universe's continuity, one might say this is the event that drove a wedge between Batman and Nightwing. In Batman Beyond, I believe it was suggested a relationship with Batgirl was the reason Nightwing never returned to become Batman after Bruce retired, so die hards might find it somewhat workable to weave in, but for the average viewer, it feels odd and in the context of this film, very out of place.
But if you can set that aside, the movie is overall still really good and a great adaptation of the graphic novel, including a musical number by the Joker.

Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Wow. Just... Wow!
I'm gonna be 100% honest: this movie had me from the opening scene to the end, and considering that it's an animated feature, that's saying something. The tone of the movie changed from scene to scene, and you felt it all: Excitement, Danger, Passion, Anger, Humor, Grief, and Sorrow. A great piece of cinematic work.
First off, this limited edition is a great package - the figure and the book alone keep this at a 4 star rating - The Man Who Laughs, although not the basis for the Killing Joke movie, is a great Joker read.
I loved the Killing Joke comic - the art alone set the bar high and the Joker's dialogue was iconic - cemented how the character was to be conveyed for decades to come. But the adaptation seems...lazy. Not in the sense that the animation is lacking, nor the voice performances, which are stellar. (Come on, Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy? 'Nuff said.) What I mean is that the producers were so keen on literally lifting the comic to screen that they squandered the opportunity to flesh out the material, and make the movie stand on its own. They assumed their audience were so versed in the lore that the thought of an early skirmish or homage of Batman and Joker's history would be redundant, instead opting to create a prologue for Batgirl instead.
That being said, it is still a good view and a must for fans.
