After watching both official versions of this movie and being disappointed (for different reasons) by both, I was hoping that some enterprising editor would be able to work their magic, but JLG goes beyond my expectations. By using classic rock, old superhero theme songs and (purposely) janky editing to skip over unneccessary exposition "reels," this edit serves to underline the lunatic logic of a cadre of superhumans using a Jack Kirby gizmo to resurrect their fallen idol, followed by a climactic fight inside a nuclear reactor. Essentially this edit boils down the sickly-sweet children's cough medicine of the Snyder Cut into some delicious, tooth-rotting meth candy. An absolute blast, and it pairs very nicely with JobWillins' excellent (though still unavoidably dour) Man of Tomorrow edit.
Do you recommend this edit?
