Someone managed to make one of DC's best films even better than it already was. How is that even possible?
Well for starters, the editor managed to see what aged well and what didn't, and trimmed the latter. The movie starts out with a great cut, Scarecrow not being arrested. A very simple plot alteration that doubles as both a retroactive continuity fix (though Crane escaping prison in TDKR isn't far fetched) and a way to remove one of the corniest lines in the entire film "I'm not wearing hockey pads!".
That is a very good example of how the editor manages to find what works best within a film.
Overall, this is pretty fucking good. I'd love to see what opinion Christopher Nolan would have of this edit.
