This was just amazing, the amount of effort you put into this edit really payed off. As a movie, the structure and pace were very slow, 3 hrs is excessive. But as a mini-series, It works just perfectly. Each episode starts and ends on a high note, especially final episode, where the ending had a way more significant impact. Also loved the small details and the musical changes. This edit should be on HBO Max, I'm not even exaggerating.
Excellent edit, strongly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant. Seamlessly and professionally done. I always felt The Batman should have been a mini series on HBO Max due to it's lengthy runtime and this edit perfectly demonstrates that. Don gives us a slow burner of a noir-crime thriller slowly unraveling over four episodes. This is probably the closest I felt to when i was watching Daredevil series on Netflix in 2015, something about this edit just restored the feeling from that show. I loved the credits score (from the OST) and the title cards, everything is consistent and compliments the aesthetic and theme of the film perfectly. Speaking of the film itself, I actually prefer the sequencing and ending here more than the original. Finally the video (4K ) and audio quality (5.1 sound) is impeccable, especially for TV, but i'd also love a smaller file size in 1080p for personal devices so i can watch it wherever/whenever lol. I certainly recommended this edit if you weren't totally sold on the original movie (for its runtime etc) or if you're looking forward to the two spin-off HBO Max shows and craving something in the same vein then this edit will complement them nicely in the future. Great work, DonKamillo.

I absolutely loved this edit. This was perfect movie to make as a ministries series due to it 3hr length time as the movie could be comfortably broken into 4 Episodes. DonKamillo's goal was to make it feel like a 4 Volume Graphic Book and I think that goal was achieved perfectly. It felt like I was watching a TV series made for HBO Max, yes that's how professional it was, with the intro title cards and the end credits on each Volume. Personally, I actually much prefer the ending that DonKamillo gave us then the original. Also, as an added bonus it's in 4K and 5.1 sound which is nice on the eyes and ears. Highly recommended, well done DonKamillo.

Say one thing for Don Kamillo, say he's a master.

Se7en is one of my all-time top 5 favorite movies, and so I was rather pleased to learn that The Batman was a love letter to it. As such, The Batman is hands down my favorite Batman film, and now also one of my all-time favorites, despite having a few gripes here and there.

I watched this edit over the course of 3 days, as was (almost) intended, and Don Kamillo has either removed my gripes entirely, or tweaked them in such a way that I don't mind them so much.

In short, I personally thought that the Joker scene should have been a mid-credits scene, and I feel the deleted scene was better left out, but DK used the deleted scene extremely well, and I don't mind the other one, so it's a minor complaint.

That's it. That's the only thing I have to complain about here. Everything written in the "Changes" tab was directly responsible for my increased enjoyment of this edit over the original film. ESPECIALLY ending with the Alfrid hospital scene over the Catwoman Motorcycle scene. Seriously, I have only good things to say here.

I cannot recommend this edit enough.

Infinite props to you here DonKamillo, I'll be watching this edit for years to come.


Edit: Forgot to mention, I had a few other minor gripes when I first saw this edit, and DK fixed/tuned them up within a week. Guy's a trooper.

So, i was quite excited to see a miniseries take on The Batman for more digestibility and some narrative improvements.

Narrative:
The overall tone of it doesn´t reinvent the exploration of the story, but that is fine and i didn´t thought it was Dons intention to do so. Therefore if you liked the original movie and structure you will be pleased to tread known waters. It´s worthwile.

As far as the format of a miniseries go it´s a hit and miss for me, personally - visual and narrative editing:
- Vol.1 started with the narration of Batman and his crime fighting, which is a far more compelling entry for this series then the murder of the mayor. Nice switch there and good placement of the title sequence after the cold open.
- Vol.2.3.4: i thought the cold opens didn´t work. Not necessarily narrative-wise but the length. 7-10 minutes for an opening of follow up episodes before a title sequence would work if the movie would´ve been shot as a series. But it wasn´t and the movie story structure doesn´t really give enough room to tell it lke that unfortunately, in my opinion.
The ending of vol.3 with Batman visiting the Riddler in prison (raise of the roller blind) is a perfect one because the third installement has the deleted joker scene in the beginning.
Unfortunately vol.4 doesn´t pick upon of the ending of vol.3 and starts with cementery scene of Selina and Batman, when it should´ve with Riddler and Batman, in my view.

Audio Editing:
Seemless cuts and rescoring. Technically without flaws.
The rescored scene with Bruce and Alfred in the hospital is a nice idea, although i found it a bit too sad and loud in a technical sense.

Verdict:
Overall it was a nice edit and well done work editing-wise. But which doesn´t really work as a series i´m afraid.
I appreciate the created title cards and that the edit was done in UHD as well as 5.1 surround.
