Brief Synopsis:
The 6 terrific deleted scenes were included into the movie again to add to the character depth and change the entire atmosphere of the movie.
Intention:
The additional scenes add a lot to the overall atmosphere of the movie. Of course the surprise ending won’t be that much of a surprise anymore, but the characters get more developped and the metaphysical atmosphere is improved a lot. You just understand everything better. Elijah and David become both more human, as they show more emotion.
It was kind of difficult to add the scenes into the context, but we think we decided for the right places to fit the scenes into. A lot of resounding was needed to make this possible. At least one scene is where M Night would have never put it (the fair), but see for yourself if it fits.

I really enjoy most Extended Movie Edits. Mostly I enjoy them because I like to decide for myself if the removal of the extra material was warranted or not.

AU Extended Edit while interesting really proves why some scenes must be removed. The long slow progression of this movie is only made looongggger and slllllooooowwwwer by the addition of the deleted scenes. While the slow build up and progression of the story line in the Theatrical release worked, it just barely worked. If the Theatrical Release was any longer or slower I don't believe most of the audience would have stood for for it and it wouldn't have been as popular as it was.

All the extended scenes where removed with cause and justly so. By viewing this edit you can understand why each extra scene was removed.

CBB did an excellent job in Editing the Deleted scenes back into the narrative of the film. This Fan Edit flowed nicely and the only flaw I noticed was the change in film color pallet in some of the deleted scenes.

I had only watched this movie once and that was years ago. I remember thinking that it was too long and too slow.
But then again, I was probably expecting something different.

I watchedt this last night with my son who is now 8 years old.
It isn’t heavy on action and is big on character development in the early going.
I asked my son if he thought it was boring and he said that it wasn’t boring at all.
He was very into the slow build up and mystery of it all.

Obviously, he also had a strong connection with the son, Joseph, in the movie.
I had totally forgot about the whole father/son relationship. Probably because I had watched this before my son was born.
So that was another aspect of the movie that I personally connected to and really enjoyed.

Even though it’s rated PG-13, this surprisingly makes for a great watch with the kids since there isn’t that much violence and I can’t recall any swearing either.

The editing is superb and seamless.
Video and audio is great which is the norm for CBB fanedits.

The only suggestion that I’d make would be to cut the opening text regarding comic books as that seems out of place and/or gives something away too early.

9/10

A very enjoyable FanEdit. Some of the positions of the deleted scenes feel a little odd at times especially when inserted within an existing scene. There are also some interlacing issues.

Still, this is a compelling watch that holds together because of the strong narrative.

A version 2 from the Blu-ray source would be welcome as I think this FanEdit deserves it. Some minor flow issues could be smoothed out at the same time.

When I saw Unbreakable in the theater, it was one of the only times I’ve ever wished a movie were longer. I simply did not want the movie to end. I’ve kept this feeling all this time, and so it makes sense that this is the first extended edition I’ve been interested in watching.

All of these added scenes are appreciated, and they really do add to an already great movie.

Sadly I was distracted at times by some scenes which suffered from poorly interlaced footage. These annoying lines were especially visible during the deleted scene “Audrey and Joseph at the hospital” and during the finale “fight” scene, although there were another few moments of it during the movie that didn’t last as long and weren’t as distracting (such as the last moments of the deleted scene at the fair). Not a huge problem, but detracted from the experience.

All in all, it is still my ideal version of the movie for the time being. 7 stars.

I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
Rating criteria: image quality, sound quality, 3x improvement, overall.
Image Quality: 7 of 10
Sound Quality: 9 of 10
Improvement: 7 of 10
Overall: 7 of 10
