The Joker tries to flee on a Jet Pack but Batman catches up with him and the two struggle in the air until they crash into the globe of the derelict World's Fair. The two survive, and Andrea grabs the Joker to complete her revenge once and for all. At that very moment, the explosives the Joker planted everywhere in the fair blow up like hell on Earth, and the Joker utters perhaps his most epic Evil Laugh in the entire DCAU canon. Andrea then smokes out, taking the Joker with her. The ground crumbles under Batman's feet, making him fall in the sewers. He is then dragged away by the current and emerges far away into safety to contemplate the explosions.
Shirley Walker's amazing soundtrack just adds to the scene's epicness through and through, the choirs especially.
The final scene, pure and simple. Seeing Bruce stand on the building edge looking out into the night and knowing that he is and always will be Batman. Then the music swells up and the bat signal lights up the sky. Bob Kane and Bill Finger's vision perfectly displayed.
By the same note, the birth of Batman. The awesome music mixed with a simultaneous usage of Tear Jerker makes it probably the most incredible showing of his first donning of the cowl ever.
The fact that Siskel and Ebert gave the movie "2 thumbs up" and — almost — gave them good reason to turn their backs on the Animation Age Ghetto.
Even more awesome this is the only Batman film of the 80s/90s to get "2 thumbs up", yes that's right, this animated Batman film is the only Batman film that Roger Ebert liked until The Dark Knight Trilogy. note Gene Siskel liked the first three, and hated Batman & Robin, and he said MOTP was just below the first in terms of quality
Mark Hamill says that this movie was where he truly developed his repertoire of Joker laughs, a collection he used since.
