I approve of the hour-long Walpurgis battle.

If there's one thing I learned from Michael Bay movies, it's that even awesome action sequences can become boring if they go on too long.

What's the optimum time for maximum epicness?

I would put it at no more than 20% of the movie's total length. You need other things to happen as well to make a complete experience after all.
Also, the longer the battle sequence, the more likely the creators will try to use shortcuts or padding, and the more likely the audience will spot them.

Yeah, they could show more with what Homura did to defeat Walpurgis but at same time they need to expand on the ending. The ending needs to be more fantastic, that is a given.

Ex:
Homura can expand by using tanks, F-35 Lightning II (Japan purchased em this year or she can steal em with Za Warudo), C4s, a industrial made bomb made out of missiles, SHAFT missiles, HEAT ammo, a truck packed with C4s, a motorcycle packed with C4s, a magnetic crane with a car (packed with C4s), a car packed with C4s (and will probably drive them all at the same time XD), mortars, RPGS and AT-4s (she'd probably use everything Japan has XD)

Homura's weapons are real and very deadly, though.

Then again, with that mask, she could literally turn anything into a lethal weapon,
including balloons.

It will be enjoyable, no doubt. But its hard to see what can they think of to add to the battle until it fits an hour, or close. How many hits or wounds will Homura need to suffer until the audience finally concedes it is enough? Personal opinion, a solid twenty-minute battle should do the trick! Or perhaps even shorter.

Oddly enough, I kind of felt that it was actually the end of the WN battle that could have used just a bit more time. I think Homura earned another minute or so to wallow in the utter unfairness of it all, and how all the suffering had been for nothing before cutting to the hope spot.

But on-topic, they sure have one hell of a battle scene to live up to. I recently did a re-watch, and that last battle really was something else. The precision and skill that Homura shows is awesome, but also really depressing because it drives home how many times she's done this to get it down to such an exact science.

Not too odd I guess

Personally I felt that both WN battle and the end of the battle is quite... short, it's sure a bit tearjerker but.. short

However appealing it is to fans ( me included ). That would be a bad idea, how then will the general public view it? And this might be the first Anime I might be introducing to my mom, I do hope it ain't anything that would freak her out and make her go against me watching animes.

I approve of having a Walpurgisnacht battle.
But they should actually give everyone a chance to shine, including the Oriko cast, to actually fight it.

Spoiler for Though the only problem is that...:

The only way to prevent that is killing Oriko/Kirika afterwards. =3=
