The wisest thing WB could do after releasing the awkward, uneven, and disappointing overall Dark Knight Returns two-parter would be canning it completely and making a new one in the style of the brilliant New Batman Adventures episode with Michael Ironside voicing Batman. That one got it completely right.

The second wisest thing would be to take this fanedit and give it official status. #ReleaseTheBlueyodaCut

For real, everything that can be fixed by editing is fixed here. Not much can be done about the conventional visuals (TDKR needs to play like an acid trip-ish Metal Hurlant issue for full effect) or the poor voice acting, but otherwise this turns mediocrity into greatness. Pacing is excellent, intrusive material is gone, and technically it's completely flawless. Very highly recommended for any Batman fan.
