i disagree on multiple counts. 1: the first hour and fifteen minutes aren't flawless. for example, cut nicky katt's bumbling swat guy character! 2: the editing in the final gordon monologue rocks, as well as the interrogation, and plenty of other good stuff. i didn't vote for it, but if i had it would've been for the whole (not perfect) movie. the special features on the blu ray shows just how much footage they shot for every moment of action.. drudging through it to make the best possible sequence is a feat.
