Too rude for children but too childish for adults
Batman and Harley Quinn appears as if it were part of Batman the Animated series with a very similar style of animation. However, it’s extended length means it’s supplied with a huge amount of filler material and it suffers severely.
The story follows Batman (Kevin Conroy) and Nightwing (Loren Lester) as they search for Poison Ivy (Paget Brewster), who is attempting to turn all living life forms into plant based material. When their search brings no leads, the pair enlists the help of Harley Quinn (Melissa Rauch) in tracking down the Earth’s biggest threat.
With such a large portion of the film feeling as if there’s a considerable lack of effort placed into its creation, the overall impression is not one of quality. The vast number of still shots slow down the pace considerably, and all too often does it meander into pointless dialogue.
Yet, the jokes are the film’s actual worst element. They are often too rude for children but too childish for adults. There’s a very small quota who will find it funny, which comes from an even smaller quota of interested parties who knew about the film’s creation and its limited release. A film such as Batman And Harley Quinn cannot survive as just a fan pleaser. Specifically when it actually pleases no one.
