A very good edit of my nostalgic favorite Batman movie, one that didn't try to change the tone into something that it wasn't meant to be, which I appreciate. The story flows well with the deleted scenes added, though I really didn't like the placement of the Chase x Batman rooftop scene: it didn't make sense to me that Chase would try to seduce Batman after seeing something as traumatizing as seeing a family murdered in front of her at the circus. I think it's placement was better in the original cut.

Audio was fine, though Chase's muted dialogue in the aforementioned rooftop scene was so noticeable it took me out for a second. The video quality of the deleted scenes were noticeably different than the rest of the film, which of course isn't the fault of the editor.

Overall, it's my favorite of all the Batman Forever edits I've seen, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see the film in the original shooting script order.
