Now this was interesting.

The edit works incredibly well as a single narrative, regardless of the movies being released almost a decade apart. The reprising roles make it even more convincing, and no unaware viewer would take this for less than a back-to-back production of two separate installments. There are some narrative inconsistencies that could have been edited along - like the persian emissary disdain for Queen Gorgo's say as a woman, even though he is shown to have been Artemisia's mentor at that point. But that's on the nitpick side. While other reviewers have taken issue with how prominent the sequel story is in the edit, I think it's for the better since it gives the original some real-world political sustenance instead of relying just on mythic sandals-on-the-ground.

AV quality is just okay, editing is pretty flawless throughout.

Good showcase for fanediting.
