By now you’ve probably heard of the R-rated DC Comics animated film “Batman: The Killing Joke.” This week’s Honest Trailer claimed that the “joke was on us” with this wannabe edgy misfire, and now Cinema Sins is here to count the plentiful mistakes committed by the wacky film.
Counting down the “sins” in 13 minutes or less, the first violation comes at the beginning of the film when Batgirl says, “First of all, this is probably not how you thought the story would start.” CinemaSins’ response to that is, “You mean with narration? That’s most movies these days, I think.”
The offenses keep tallying up as Barbara’s pal tries to hook her up with a friend, the unexpected sex scene between the two superheroes and then the 30 minutes it actually takes to get to the Joker storyline.
“Animated Batman movie is much more ‘Sex & The City’ than I think it intended it to be,” chimes in the video’s narrator. “The ‘second act’ feels so disjointed from the first act, though — it’s like it doesn’t belong in the story it began telling.”
Things don’t get much better from there, as the video goes on to tally a total of 112 sins, with a final sentence of “unprotected bat sex.”
