Gordon Perspective, The
Very nicely edited. Familiarity with the source probably helps a lot with this one. Even with all that, it felt like a bit of a sidecar to other stuff happening offscreen. Perhaps it's because of that. It's quite enjoyable, since I love Oldman's Commish but it does feel like a bit of a patchwork to a Batman story, which is always going to intrigue the viewer a bit more.
A bit disappointing. Felt like a highlights reel of Gordon in Batman Begins rather than a fully formed standalone narrative. Fade to black was used a little too often and some of the music transitions felt clunky. Still, Oldman is awesome as Gordon so a selection of his scenes is enjoyable to watch.

This was a very professional and technically impressive edit. Unfortunately, I’m not really a fan of the current Batman films, so I’m probably not one to judge this. I did like how the focus remained on Gordon, but the “Batman Voice” still drives me crazy, and Gordon’s action hero bit at the end bugged me as much in this as it did in the original movie. But none of this is UA’s fault, and once again the edit was very well done. Just not my cup of tea. 6 Frinks out of 10.
