    Just an update on the above film.

    I received it today and thought I would go to one of the bits of the film that have been re-edited cut and re-animated.

    I was disgusted. I have been fortunate enought to see an uncut bootleg which was fabulous better than Mask Of The Phantasm. This DVD release however is so bad it changes the whole story and has zero impact with all the changes.

    Warners should have released 2 versions.

    What's been edited / censored / cut-out, and do you know why this was? Surely Warner's realise that they have a product that mainly adults watch, rather than kids?!

    Warners really do pee me off with their attitude towards their market.
    I know, lets boycott them, just for a while.

    Anyone know of a website where we can post comments that they will actually read?

    Dear all,

    The cuts were very major.

    I was disgusted what was cut.

    I cannot really say what was cut because it really will spoil it for you. One example though is all blood was digitally removed and instead of joker stabbing Bruce/Batman with a knife it was been removed to a fist punch!

    These are the least worrying cuts. The major cuts form a pan around sequence that was cut and the infamous flashback content had been entirely reanimated so that the emotional charge of the film has been altered and no longer makes sense.

    On ainitcoolnews.com there is a big discussion about the film and talks with Warners about releasing the original version sometime although I doubt this will happen.

    Apparently the cuts were made to make it child friendly.

    Having seen both versions I can say that the released version is altered so much it makes no sense and is frankly awful.

    Dave.
