Batman & Robin De-Assified
The “Alfred is dying” subplot has been removed.
A lot of the idiotic dialogue is gone. Not all, but most of it. And no “cartoony” sound effects.
While the ice-skating scene remains, it is not as blatant. And we don’t see B&R click their heels together to pop skates out of there boots.
Very little Bane and we don’t hear him saying “BAAAAAANNNNNEEEE” at any point. He is still a moronic henchman to Ivy.
The whole “competition” between B&R is gone for the most part. Robin doesn’t whine in this version and the petty bickering between the dynamic duo is gone.
Batman speaks very little and comes off more “professional”.
As stated previously, Ivy remains the same. This is due to the fact that Ms. Thurman’s entire performance is campy and over the top.
Batgirl is still in the film. But her character has been reduced significantly.
Freeze is now much more menacing and a bit darker. His stupid one-liners are cut to a minimum. Still not what you would want, but much better.
All the stupid gangs and motorbike racing scenes were eliminated.
The opening credits are more “Bond-like”, in that the movie opens with B&R battling Freeze and then the opening credits roll once Robin is thawed out.
Idiotic visual elements such as the Bat-skates, the Bat-credit card, butt and crotch shots, etc. have been removed.

After looking for this edit for years, I finally found this edit. I loved it, it's soooooooo much more watchable than the official version. Although, I thought there are too many crossfades and fade to black's, and the narrative does feel a bit rushed (Bane just disappears without explanation). Still, better than the official version.
Well, actually, as some people have said, not the length of a movie, but not that of a series, so I should say that there already have, 3 points of 10
The Final impressed me, and really being mounted well actually, yes it would have been apt a sequel, just ... To clarify doubts. 8 Points.
The color should have been desaturated as BF: Red Book Edition, That I dislike, as it is still full of color. 1 Point
You had to use music from Danny Elfman for Ambiete since Goldenthal's music but apparently Batman music, seemed to be composed with electric guitar. But Prince used it and praised him, 1 point
Still FanEdit recommend this if you want to have at least would have been seen as having been "good", 8 points
Batman & Robin still sucks, but it’s far less painful this time around. The editing was well done for the most part. There were a few audio transitions that sounded abrupt.
If you want to cap off your Batman marathon, skip the theatrical cut of B&R and stick to this.

Visual Editing – 9
Audio Editing – 8
Degree of Editing – 7
(NOTE: “Degree of Editing” is a 100% arbitrary rating that I keep in mind when reviewing edits. This is not meant to insinuate that a faneditor is lazy or not. Some fanedits require a lot more work than others and I take this into account.)
MOVIE RATING – 5
Narrative – 5 (original is a 2)
Enjoyment – 5 (original is a 2)
NOTE: Ratings for Narrative and Enjoyment are weighted so as not to punish the editor for turning a flaming turd into a semi-enjoyable turd.
OVERALL RATING – 8
The very first fan edit I ever saw!! And to tell the truth, as a HUGE movie fan, I’ve found myself enjoying the fan edits more than the originals on many occasions. I saw ALL of the Burtonesque Batmans at the cinema and you redeemed this movie from the 7th ring of hell. George Clooney and I thank you…
