It certainly seems like an abrupt shift. I can't remember where I read it, if it was here or elsewhere, but someone posted something that struck me as plausible, that the DCAU movies have a maximum run times of about 75 minutes mandated in order to fit in a two-hour-with-commercials programming block.
I don't know if that's true or if it was at work here, but I do think the interaction prior to that scene was really top notch and the climax could have benefited from a little more easing into it. Mind, I don't think that would have fully fixed what I see as the failures of the ending, but it would have maybe helped soften the blow.
