Thought he did a great job voicing the Joker, it worked well with Weller's older, gruffer voice.

He did a really good job

The only reason I am accepting of his performance was because he was playing an older Joker. Otherwise John DiMaggio should have portrayed him...obviously because we wouldn't get Hamill

No, sir, I don't like it.

His Joker was pretty weak. I need more theatricality from my Joker, more life. He didn't have any balls. He would have been more suited to Zsasz or Calendar Man or Crane.

Also, I like Peter Weller as much as the next guy, but his Batman was shite as well. He was very wooden with his line readings. It was like listening to a robot. Or a RoboCop.

Everything else about it was great. Robin was good. Doc Wolper was good. The mutantslang even sounded exactly like it does in my head everytime I read it. I've watched both flicks twice already and I dig em.

I love his joker voice it was really creepy and i love Batman and Jokers final fight i loved it more than how it was in the comics this animated movie was better than the comic IMO and i loved how he Weller said "NO MORE" it was just perfect then when Emerson was like "SEE YOU IN HELL HAHAHAHHAAAAA!"CRAAACCCCK! broken neck and stuff aww it was great.

Whatever you think of his performance, it was way better than what Brent Spiner did.

ive watched the movie several times now and i just cant get down with the jokers voice. It was off and had no life. Maybe its just me I wasnt feeling his voice. Other than that though the movie was great. I liked part one more but this was still really good.

Agree with DudeRises

No theatricality, no energy.

Worst Joker voice to date. Makes John DiMaggio Joker's voice seem flawless (which I did not like at the time, guess I do now).

worst joker ever...worse than the whoever did Joker's voice in Young Justice.
