Not to mention leaving a loaded gun within reach of a hostage? Joker wouldn't be that sloppy. A gun sure but it'd most likely be empty or have a BANG flag.

Other than that I loved Batman and the passion for the mythos was clearly there. I wouldn't mind seeing more from them in the future.
I enjoyed the actress's performance. I thought she did quite a good job portraying a Harley Quinn who has been irreversably damaged by the Joker. That's the sort of Harley Quinn I want to see on film, someone who can't see the wood for the trees yet the damage done is plain to see.

I agree with you about the Joker. I think they tried to go with a more animated series style Joker which didn't quite fit with the tone of the whole film.
