Batman: The Killing Joke (2016) Review

Batman-killing-joke

The 1988 graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke, is widely considered one of the best Batman comics of all time and the definitive origin story of The Joker thanks to its look into the history of Batman's most notable enemy (or at least A history since Joker himself admits the memory may be fuzzy) as well as the shocking turn where Joker shoots Barbara Gordon in the spine, crippling her, ending her career as Batgirl and setting up the events that would lead her to reinvent herself as Oracle. When news broke that DC animation was adapting the novel for its own animated feature, as well as getting back the cast of the loved and respected Animated Series - Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as Joker, Tara Strong as Batgirl - people were excited to see this defining novel on the big screen.

What they got was an adaptation that in its attempts to justify its feature length runtime, ended up tripping over its own Bat-Rope.

Because the source novel is so short the film made up for it by adding in a half-hour prologue featuring Batgirl's relationship with Batman as they face off against spoiled mobster Paris Franz who develops a dangerous attraction to Batgirl. It's this prologue that is the problem, it's understandable why they did it, they wanted to add more to Barbara's character before Joker shoots her in the gut which is a fair way to go about it, Barbara's role in the novel is limited to her victimisation but since that's part of a decade's running series, people know and understand who Barbara is and her crippling hits just as hard.

What they end up doing instead in the prologue, is make Barbara out to be a foolish, loved-spurned teenager who acts up because Batman isn't letting her be a foolish, love-spurned teenager. They even introduce a sexual relationship between the two characters, the act of them having sex isn't a killer, to the film's credit it does make sense since Barbara does still find the thrill and excitement of crime-fighting that Bruce lost a long time ago. However it is unnecessary since it takes away from their characters and their motivations. Bruce suddenly becomes a creepy older man taking advantage of a young woman's crush and Barbara becomes a plot device since now Bruce's reasons to go after Joker become a lot more personal than they should be, especially since her storyline ends at the hospital, making her development through the first half-hour pointless by comparison.

Superhero sex was already handled by Watchmen and they at least made the distinction clear that fighting crime is a turn-on so long as both parties are into it.

Barbara is a great character, she's fun and energetic and well-rounded, even after her disability, she's proven to be a valued part of the Bat Family both as Batgirl and as Oracle and her relationship with Bruce has always been one of protectiveness, a second father to her. This films doesn't work for her, she's too much of an angst-ridden teenager, mad for not getting her own way and sadly sexualised which considering what Joker does to her (both what is shown and what is implied) is a VERY poor choice. In their attempts to make Barbara more of a character before she becomes a victim, they just end up making her more of a victim.

Thankfully the second half of the film, once The Killing Joke actually starts, is where the film makes up for itself. Almost. There's a great deal of psychology in the novel that doesn't translate perfectly but the gist is still there. After Joker escapes from prison, he finds Commissioner Gordon, shoots his daughter in the spine, and takes him to an abandoned amusement park where he subjects him to emotional torture by way of a kangaroo court, nude pictures of his crippled and bleeding daughter, and a song & dance number. All because Joker wants to prove a point, that one bad day can make even the most noble of men crack and go mad.

All the while we get flashbacks to Joker's origin, where as a failed comedienne trying to support his pregnant wife he turned to crime, agreeing to help a couple of mobsters break into the chemical plant where he worked in exchanged for a cut of the profits. But just like Gordon, Joker suffers through the worst day imaginable and shatters as a result, fully transforming himself into the Clown Prince Of Crime.

While there are some elements that aren't as well handled - the dichotomy between Batman and Joker feels better established in the books which is a big part of the ending and how both the film and the book handle it differently - the general uneasiness and disturbing nature of the story is still there and quite graphic at point, maybe not to the potential of its R-Rating but more than a PG-13 would've allowed. Barbara getting shot is just as shocking in motion as it is on page as is Joker's treatment of her and Gordon's carnival ride through his living Hell is one of the more distressing sequences that DC have made, animated or otherwise. Once the actual story kicks in, the film is a very faithful adaptation, with plenty of the novel's most iconic images and speeches played out on screen with the legendary voice cast delivering them.

The voice cast is definitely one of the highlights, Kevin Conroy delivers the same gravitas to Batman as he always has though he's a little too overbearing in the prologue. His best work comes when he's facing off against Joker and the tiredness of fighting the same mad-man over and over has finally gotten him to the point of exhaustion and knowing that one of them will eventually kill the other. The real star of the show is Hamill, having already established himself as the best Joker through the Animated series and the Arkham games, Hamill retired from voicing the character but did say he would return if The Killing Joke was ever adapted, he slips right back into the character and gives some of his best work, hearing the now legendary monologues out of his mouth is worth the viewing for Batman fans and the subtle changes he gives to Joker in both the past and the present are up there with Conroy's own inflections between Batman and Bruce Wayne.

Outside of them Tara Strong does her best with Barbara but as mentioned above they don't give her anything to work with and she feels like wasted talent. And while Ray Wise makes for a fine Comissioner Gordon, having the cast of the animated series back does make the lack of Bob Hastings (who tragically died in 2014) all the more noticeable.

The animation itself is a mixed bag, the imagery itself is fine with the classic scenes and disturbing pictures making their mark for fans of the novel but it's not up to par with what DC have put out before. There have been rumours that the film was rushed so as to market itself between Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, and considering both Bats and Joker will be facing off again in a couple of weeks that does lend credit to those rumours. The art direction comes up lacking with too many muted colours, it really needed to recapture the noir styling of the animated series, plus the jarring quality between the animated characters and the CGI backdrops became a distraction almost immediately into the first chase scene.

When the film allows itself to be it can look good, there's a suitable amount of violence to live up to the novel's reputation and the psychological moments stand out for the same reason. But it does feel rushed at moment, particularly during the action sequences when the frame-rate gets noticeably choppy at point, maybe it'll look better on a smaller screen but for the theatrical experience it's hard not to feel disappointed by the results onscreen.

The Killing Joke was always going to be a hard adaptation, it's too dark, too psychological and too short to be done properly and sadly the attempts made to adapt it falls short of the talent on offer here. The irony is that the parts that deal with The Killing Joke itself are really good, the animation might not be up to snuff but it's a disturbing tale and allows Conroy and Hamill a chance to go toe-to-toe once more. It's that Batgirl prologue that destroys the film, not because it's a change to the source material, the idea of adding more to Barbara is a welcome addition, but because they did arguably the worst job possible of adding to her character, transforming one of comic books most iconic and influential female characters into a sex crazed emo teen. She deserved better and so did the audience.

6.5/10

Fantasia Festival, July 16th, 2016: "Terraformars"

Terraformars_poster_-_copy

The special evening I'm attending tonight has been almost twenty years in the making. In 1997, during its second edition, Fantasia was the first festival, theater, organization or whatever in North America to show a feature film from prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike. That year, they screened the international premiere of Fudoh: The New Generation.

Since then, the festival has shown about 1/3 of Miike's directorial efforts (Audition, Dead or Alive, Ichi the Killer, One Missed Call, etc...). Needless to say, he's a favorite of the festival. Unfortunately, Miike has never attended the festival. It all changes this year for the 20th anniversary of the festival.

Tonight, the crowd I'm part of is attending the North American premiere of one of Miike's new movies, the sci-fi/action/comedy Terraformars, an adaptation of a popular Japanese manga series of the same name. Takashi Miike is in attendance to host the screening. Additionally, the Fantasia Festival is making the most of Miike's first appearance at the festival to give him a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nicolas Archambault, co-director of Asian programming came to the front of the theater. He welcomed us to the International premiere of Terraformars. He added that, as we all knew, director Takashi Miike was finally among us. The simple mention of his name triggered a round of applause. Archambault said that it was an honor for the festival to finally welcome him to Montreal.

Archambault mentioned the first screening of Fudoh: The New Generation in 1997 and also that they showed about thirty other movies directed by Miike in the twenty years of the festival. He said that Miike is known to reinvent and push the boundaries. He added that, for all these reasons, we admire him and that Miike is undoubtedly Mr. Fantasia.

Archambault proceeded to introduce four persons to pay Miike an homage. He said that they would speak slower than usual to give a chance to Miike's translator sitting next to him. Mitch Davis, Tony Timpone, Karim Hussain and ex-programmer Julien Fonfrède (who programmed Fudoh: The Next Generation in 1997) all came to the stage and each of them spoke for a few minutes. Archambault also added a few words in his name.

Archambault then asked us to watch a short tribute video edited by someone in the crew. Check it out for yourself by clicking the link below:

https://vimeo.com/175226297

After the video, Nicolas Archambault introduced us Miike's producer Misako Saka who was in attendance. She stood up and saluted the audience, who applauded. Then, finally, Archambault welcomed Takashi Miike to the stage. He stood up from his seat and joined Archambault on the stage while the audience was giving him a standing ovation.

With the help of his translator, Miike spoke to the audience for a little bit. Among other things, he said that he always wanted to come to Montreal but he was always so busy. He joked that he feels that receiving this kind of award is the end of his career. However, he has the intention to continue doing movies for at least another twenty years. He said that we were about to watch Terraformars but that he made a terrible mistake. He said he learned earlier that there are no cockroaches in Montreal while this movie is about men fighting cockroaches. He joked that if we came to Japan, he could show us places where we could see plenty of cockroaches. That way, we'd understand the fear.

Nicolas Archambault said they had another surprise for Miike. He invited to the stage Yuji Kubo, the Deputy Consul General of Japan in Montreal. The man brought flowers to Miike.

You can check a few pictures of the opening ceremony by photographer King-Wei Chu here:

Archambault finally said to stay with us for a Q&A after the screening.

The story of Terraformars goes a little bit like this (taken from the Fantasia website):

In 2599, Earth is in a serious state of overpopulation. Fortunately, scientists had sent extraordinary amounts of moss and cockroaches to Mars 500 years earlier, in order to render it fit for human life. While the results were relatively positive, the first attempt at colonization failed dramatically. The government is now preparing a second ultra-secret mission led by the unstable Ko Honda, whose hand-picked team is made up of criminals lured by the promise of freedom and a cash reward upon their return. They’ve allowed for a few genetic modifications, granting them the characteristics of various insects. Among the killers, yakuza and other hoodlums on board, Shokichi and his sister Nanao, both accused of murder, see this as their opportunity for a fresh start. But a big obstacle stands in their way — the roaches dispatched five centuries ago have evolved into gigantic, powerful humanoid creatures that have no intention of cooperating. From their very first encounter, the team will grasp just why Mars is known as the Red Planet…

I thought this movie was pretty entertaining! Silly but entertaining. Comparisons with Starship Troopers are obvious but I'm not gonna lie, I enjoyed Terraformars a lot more. The movie mixes sci-fi, action, comedy and also a bit of BBC's Planet Earth series (you'll understand when you see it). I mean, I couldn't help but smile when we were introduced to each of these bugs.

The movie looks great. These is a lot of CGI used in the making of this movie. It sometimes looks a bit cartoony but I didn't mind considering the nature of the movie. Some cool practical effects can also be seen.

The actors all do a fun job at playing these silly characters. Apart from Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) who has a small role, I'm not really familiar with anybody else. However, some of you might be familiar with Rila Fukushima who plays Tatsu Yamashiro on Arrow.

After the screening Nicolas Archambault came back to the stage and welcomed back director Takashi Miike who received another great round of applause. Archambault opened to floor to questions from the audience. Miike was accompanied by his translator. As you'll see, many of Miike's answers ended up not being exactly about the subject of the questions but I'm sure the translator did the best he could. He was quickly scribbling notes on his notepad for each questions of the audience and each of Miike's answers. Here's what I picked up:

- A fan asked asked Miike what inspires him to do so many genres of movies whether it's action, musical, kids or sci-fi movies. Miike said that like the real insects, he wanted humans to fight with them. He said he also wanted to use the new CGI technology available in Japan.

- Another fan asked if Miike does something special with the scripts he chooses to film since he doesn't write them. The fan said "we always manage to recognize your style". Miike answered that he was a fan of the Terraformars manga and he wanted to be faithful to it.

- Tony Timpone asked if there is a genre he'd still like to explore. Miike said that he doesn't think about genre. He said he doesn't even know the definition of genre when comes the time to answer a question about genre. He added that all genres are interconnected. With this movie, he simply wanted to send yakuzas to Mars.

- A fan asked what his future projects were. Miike said that ideas come to him just like that. He has a project of stop-motion animation for kids coming up and also a project destined specifically for young girls. He said that he shot Terraformars last year and that, since then, he shot an historical movie. He's also completing filming on a yakuza comedy at the moment.

- Archambault asked how the bugs (CG or practical) were created. The answer simply was that the clothes and the insects designs are based on the manga.

- A fan asked what movie he had the most fun creating. Miike said that when he shoots a movie, he always finds it fun. He added that sometimes, you find love in people and things but that it is hard to please everyone.

- Another fan asked what is was like to finally watch one of his own movies at Fantasia after all those years. Miike said that 1/3 of his films were projected here and that he was thankful to everyone who attended the screening.

And on that note, the Q&A ended.

Archambault said that a photo op would be held outside the theater.

Terraformars was simply a lot of fun. It's really silly but if you can laugh with the concept, you'll have a good time.

I'll give Terraformars a rating of 7.0 out of 10.

To give you an idea of what the movie looks like, here's a trailer. It starts at 1:15:

Weapon X updated his STATUS: about 2 hours ago

During my work week I encountered a Ghostbusters comic where the cartoon team got zapped into the original movie universe. Had to get a copy and see for myself and it was... just okay. It was fun seeing Venkman get annoyed with himself, and there are some neat cameos by other Ghostbusters like the Extreme team (and even a one-panel reference to the unaired Real Ghostbusters pilot), but it just didn't feel as epic as it should be.
OldKingClancy updated his STATUS: about 3 hours ago

The funniest part of the night was the trailers which seemed to follow a certain trend. There was The Accountant with Ben Affleck (first time seeing it, very interested now), Suicide Squad, Lego Batman and Wonder Woman (yes the comic-con trailer on the big screen, get jealous). It's almost as if this DC event was trying to get people interested in DC movies.

Yeah, I saw the trailer for "The Accountant" a little while ago and I was very intrigued.

The Killing Joke is a solid adaptation, but some of the criticisms - especially towards Batgirl - are warranted. It's not the worst superhero movie I've seen this year, but it's far from the best. 7/10

I wish I was, it's a real shitter because once the actual Killing Joke story starts the film does get good but the Batgirl opening is so poorly handled it nearly stops the film before it even begins.

I am LIVID. Barbara Gordon is one of THE BEST female comic book characters ever created. I just read in more detail what you told me and I can not fucking believe they reduced her amazing, inspiring, fantastic character to an emo sex-crazed teenager. Not to mention Babs and Bruce would NEVER. This is so anti-canon it hurts.

I can't right now.

Have you watched Stranger Things on Netflix? Great horror series that's a perfect watch during the summer

Spy is really fun, with Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Jason Statham.

Remember kid, there's heroes and there's legends. Heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kid, and you'll never go wrong.

Her music was alright back then. She's still super sexy though.

TMC broadcast The Taking of Pelham One Two Three-1974 the other night. I liked it. Has anyone else seen it? The old thriller has a familiar cast of talented actors from back in the day. The dialogue is pretty clever at times. And, the story takes a different approach than much modern fare.

I saw the remake a few years ago and quite enjoyed it; perhaps the original will resonate even more. I'll have to give it a shot sometime.

The original is classy.

Worth a watch and nice to see the great Walter Mathau in a non-comedic role.

I've got a couple errands to run but in case I don't have time before I go, I'll be heading out to the cinema tonight to catch Batman: The Killing Joke. It's a one night event and even with the mixed response - I'm not overtly familiar with the source material so it probably won't matter too much - I figured it's still worth checking out. I'll report back when I get the chance.

Batman: The Killing Joke is a hyped event. You might as well check-out the scene at the theater tonight.
