This was a great re-telling of 2001. I felt that the editor pulled off his intention very well. ("The film has been reduced to 1 hour and 24 minutes, and we feel the film, plot, and characters are completely intact, and that a faster, more energetic film has been created.")

This still feels very much like Kubrick's vision, just an hour shorter, as if Kubrick was forced to make a second cut-down version of 2001 (after cutting 20 minutes the first time).

A/V Quality is good for DVD5 standards. I didn't notice any flaws in the editing.
