On another note, how do people feel about Joker's origin story here? I honestly never liked this one much, I always prefered Joker to be a regular criminal/bank robber from the start.
Agreed on both counts. Batman's reaction should've been more like his reaction in Return of the Joker after seeing what happened to Tim. Also, I too prefer Joker's origin to be as a member of Gotham City's organized crime.

You would think after Joker shot and paralyzed Barbara than Batman would break Joker to his knees. It really doesn't fit at all given its Barbara and how being almost killed and paralyzed was serious business.

It's their own fault for making Batman ****ing Barbara. Otherwise that laughing scene with the Joker would've fit just fine. Becayse they've been doing this cat-mouse thing for so long, it's not too weird to crack a smile with an "old friend".

Even in terms of the original story, not the movie, Joker still shot and paralyzed Barbara and nearly killed her.

That alone should have made Batman want to smash Joker into oblivion, and not "laugh with him" over what he did to a young girl he worked with and the Commissions daughter. Makes no sense in context of the original comic story either.

It could have been laughing before batman would beat the snot out of him off camera. It could be him realizing that there's just no hope or reasoning with the joker so.... it's time to kick his ass one more time.

The whole story was about batman wondering how their little dance was going to end, and to see if he could stop the inevitable. Like he said, they're destined to end it at each other's deaths.

Absolutely adore the comic but thought the movie was a huge blown opportunity. The prologue was just an incredible waste of time and seemed like a bad episode of The Animated Series or something. Really disappointing. Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy were as excellent as ever though. I really would have preferred just a retrospective on the impact the comic had for the first 30 or 40 minutes and then just a shot for shot word for word frame for frame adaptation at the last part. Then they could have made a "full length" feature and not butchered the story. I can TOTALLY understand why Alan Moore feels like he does about the film industry. All of his stories have been ruined by Hollywood.

Gordon didn't want Batman to do anything illegal to him. I know what you're saying in essence but ultimately Gordon didn't want Batman to do things the way Joker wanted him to do things.
