5 Films Ruined By Bad Editing

“The notion of directing a film is the invention of critics – the whole eloquence of cinema is achieved in the editing room”.

Orson Welles, the brains behind Citizen Kane, once said this. You could have the idea for the perfect film but the way you present your movie to your audience defines the achievement. Some unlucky films fell victim to sloppy editing or unnecessary re-shoots of key portions, which rendered them lackadaisical. Hence, to show you how widespread this sort of meddling is becoming, here are the five biggest offenders in the recent past. So peeps, lights, camera, cut!

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
This one probably takes the cake. The film was riddled with plot holes and mistakes, which failed to develop the motivation of the central characters. As it turns out, the original cut of the film was around 180-minute long but Warner Brothers decided to cut it down to 150 minutes to make it PG-13. Maybe, that wasn't the best decision as the ultimate cut (unedited version) of the film, which was released earlier in July, ironed out most of the story.Batman v Superman - Bookmyshow
Suicide Squad (2016)
After the backlash that BvS received, Warner Bros (again) decided to appeal to the masses with a more lighthearted version of Suicide Squad. Though, this was a noble thought, it meddled with what director David Ayer had in mind. Rumors surfaced that re-shoots were ordered to mellow down the tone of the film. Amid all of chopping and snipping, we got a badly-edited movie, which ruined moviegoers' experience.

Warcraft (2016)
The year 2016 may seem like a year of bad editing. Warcraft added to the number. If you have seen the movie already, then you may have noticed a few apparent flaws. Well, thanks to troubled editing, a major 40-minute portion was plucked out in post production, which ruined the plot’s flow and character’s likeability.

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Yet another superhero movie fell victim to bad editing. The Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) story, which was essential to the script was clearly reduced with only limited introduction of her dark dreams. It would suffice to say, this installment of the franchise failed to captivate the audience.

Fantastic Four (2015)
Much has been made about director Josh Trank’s problems with Fox over this film. Fox was not satisfied with Trank’s cut of the film and decided to completely take over and re-shoot key scenes. Trank was obviously unhappy and took to Twitter to voice his disapproval, saying that “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though”. With the reveal it was clear as day that film was ruined in editing.
