Wow wow wow I loved this fan-edit, it removes everything to do with the justice League, it feels like man of steel 1.5. the story focuses on the conflict between bats and supes. The changes made are great and i much prefer the flow of the film. I did miss some of the doomsday plot with luthor but this is an excellent piece of work well done.
I think this is the best version POSSIBLE of this movie. Still has some big problems with the characters of Superman, Lex and the narrative as a whole but this are things impossible to fix with editing alone.
The climax of the movie feels RIGHT this time around and the Lex Luthor plan makes much more sense now. No disconnected shit leading to other movies, is just pure and simple Batman and Superman. Putting the bath scene in the end was genius.
The only thing that didn`t land to me was the flashback of Martha Wayne in the warehouse. Of all the Batman killing scenes in this movie this is the one that least needed a strong motivation of him to pull the trigger.
Unlike many, I happen to adore Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, specifically the three-hour long Ultimate Edition and not the royally botched two and a half hour theatrical cut. That being said, I surprisingly loved this fan-edit, which removes everything Justice League-related, including Wonder Woman, and creates an alternate standalone story that focuses solely on the central conflict between the two characters, one that works really well. The changes made work stunningly well, the story is very well-told and coherent and moves at a terrific pace, and the new recoloring looks absolutely stunning. To the editor, phenomenal job.
This succeeds at its intended purpose. None of the JL moments are missed, and we are left with a much more streamlined plot. Nearly all the edits are unnoticeable and smooth. A well planned out and executed work!
