BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is an animated action adventure film in which Batman and Batgirl encounter The Joker.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include gunfights, fistfights and beatings, with accompanying sight of blood from wounds.

There is a sequence of suggested sexual violence in which a woman is shot and, while she's on the ground, a man begins to unbutton her clothes. Images of her naked body with blood on her skin are seen later, implying that she was fully stripped following the shooting and may have been raped. There is limited detail of her nudity.

In another scene a man's clothes are removed and he is forced to wear a collar while being pulled around on a leash by the villains.

Infrequent moderate sex and sex references include a woman removing her top to reveal her bra while straddling a man and kissing him, with subsequent verbal references to the encounter. There are also references to a man asking a woman to wear a mask, implying it was in a sexual context.

There is occasional use of mild and moderate bad language, including 'bitch', 'asshole', 'bloody', and 'pissed'.
