Brief Synopsis:
Super powered Nazis from a parallel world invade!
What is their ultimate goal and can our Arrowverse Heroes stop them?!?!
Intention:
Crisis on Earth-X is my favourite Arrowverse crossover and in my opinion, the best executed.
I pretty much love it in it's original form.

But I wanted to try to make a slightly more streamlined version that dialed back some of the Olicity Drama that I know makes many fans cringe.

This was cross over was, I feel the arrowverse started hitting it's stride. The original cross over was very good though tons of filler and way to much focus on Oliver/Felicity that could have been kept within the confines of arrow itself. This edit really trims that down and makes for a nice, concise story. Pacing was excellent, all the scenes flowed well together. Another excellent edit from BionicBob.

Bionic Bob fanedits = fun. Plain and simple. Whenever I settle down to watch an edit by BB, I know I'm in for a hell of a ride. Unsurprisingly, Crisis On Earth X is no exception to this.

Initially I was big fan of DC's TV shows. I religiously followed Smallville from start to end, and was quickly hooked on Arrow when it came out. Same for The Flash. However, things in your life change, and the sheer ability to keep up with various seasons of what would become to be known as the "Arrowverse" was too much for my wife and I. So, we bowed out. In many ways I regret it, as there's a lot in the various shows that I love, but hey, at least with fanedits like this I can occasionally dip my superhero toe back into the world of the Arrowverse.
With this edit of Crisis on Earth X, there are some characters who appear that I just wasn't familiar with - mainly from DC's Legends series - but the sheer rollercoaster ride which Bob secures you on doesn't give you much time to dwell on such things, and there's no doubt in my mind that the story works perfectly well for us more casual fans. It also doesn't outstay it's welcome. At 145 minutes it's still lengthy I suppose, but it never feels like this. There's so much going on that I was definitely along for the ride and in many ways I didn't want to get off.

From what I'm told, many fans have problems with the whole Felicity and Oliver relationship, primarily in the way Felicity acts towards Oliver, but whilst I am aware of some of this when watching some of Arrow, Bob reels this in nicely in Crisis on Earth X. Their relationship and the mirroring with Barry's and Iris' marriage coms across very well I thought and both couples come out very well in this edit.

I loved all the reverse versions of characters from the parallel nazi world - all of them really got into the roles, and makes for some very interesting face offs with their counterparts as the story unfolds. However, the star of the show for me is Victor Garber as Martin Stein/Firestorm. His character arc here is very emotional and shows just how good an actor Garber is.

Special mention goes to the action scenes here too. Considering these are TV productions, some of the staging and photography of the fight scenes are quite something to behold. Creative, interesting and very exciting without resorting to loads of annoying shaky cam or overly quick cuts.

In terms of the edit, this near perfect. Picture looks great, no bad audio cuts, and if I was really nit picking I would just say that I didn't like one of the fade to blacks near the end, but only because it reminded me I was watching a TV Series that was going to go to a commerical break - I kinda liked the illusion of this being a feature film I suppose. But, I realise why Bob did it, and it does make sense in that way.

All in all though, a terrific edit and I look forward to watching more Crisis edits from BB!!

What a ride! This was incredibly fun! I can see now why the Arrowverse manages to gather so many fans around the world. We can sense all the respect Greg Berlantini and his teams have for the DC Universe, and the actors look to care about their roles. The story is seamless, the pacing is fast, the cuts are unnoticeable and the narrative is straight to the point if like me the jarring soap-opera of TV Network shows is a turn-off, this edit is for you.

Once again, @bionicbob has outdone himself with this fantastic edit of Crisis on Earth-X crossover from the Arrowverse.

Since the very beginning it seems like if you are watching a movie and not a TV series, all the cuts and transitions are masterfully done and you can see and feel that @bionicbob loves the Arrowverse and he knows what he is doing with his beloved characters.

All the soap opera/Olicity drama has been minimised and now this fantastic edit goes straight to the point and makes us to love this characters even more.

Personally, I have always loved the Arrowverse but sometimes the drama/soap opera held me back, but now with this edit you can see that the creators of the Arrowverse really care about the characters and superheroes and so does @bionicbob.

Every scene since the very beginning is carefully studied and prepared by @bionicbob in order to build up the story arch and the characters. I dropped a tear when a beloved character passed away.

There are plenty Easter eggs, but one that I really love, was the homage to Superman II: “General, would you care to step outside?”

I totally recommend this edit, it delivers a fantastic ride of emotions and it is really action packed.

Thanks again @bionicbob to allow me to enjoy the Arrowverse without watching all the episodes.

The Peak of the Arrowverse! This edit made the 4 part crossover into quite an enjoyable movie and one that went by with the speed of the Flash leaving me hopeful like Supergirl for more to come and ready for more comic action like Arrow. This edit is a LEGEND!

Every cut was seamless and the audio was well done considering how the music always has a bit of a swell before a commercial break. The Olicity drama has been minimized (personal preference would've been to cut back a little more, but that's because of my feelings in regards to that relationship) and without all of the inner workings of each shows drama being scaled back, we get to be fully immersed in the tragic and heroic exit of a favorite character. If you don't shed a tear, double check that you have a pulse!

In all honesty, there is literally nothing I can say to be more constructive. This is was I want to see in a major crossover event and I'm SUPER excited for Bob's Crisis on Infinite Earths movies.

Bob's love for these comic book heroes shines through and makes us believe an Arrowverse can fly (when the melodrama is scaled back and the character interactions are highlighted).
