I may have been in a bad mood or something when I watched the theatrical release of Aquaman, but I really disliked the movie. It felt so nauseatingly cringe that I had to turn it off. Thus, I thought I would try wakeupkeo’s “Special Edition” after having watched his superior edits of Birds of Prey and Suicide Squad.
How is it?
Well, I can safely say I really enjoyed myself watching this. The visual and audio editing was on point all the way through so no weird jump cuts or transitions or anything of the sort. A lot of the cringier moments of the theatrical release have been removed and the movie is just so much more enjoyable because of it.
I didn't really like the original movie, but this edit now makes this movie enjoyable and watchable, the visual and audio editing was on point all the way through and everything that was cut felt natural and wouldn't be noticeable to a first time viewer. A lot of the cringier moments of the original release have been removed and the movie is much more enjoyable because of it. The editor did a fantastic job with this material and it was a far better viewing experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see a superior version of this film.

Awesome, thank you for the kind review, I am so glad it was worth the watch!
As someone who did not enjoy the theatrical release of Aquaman I have to say this edit made the film considerably more enjoyable. The cuts made really benefit the pacing. Despite 20+ minutes being removed nothing is missed and there are no plotholes. The highlight for me was the choice to cut two jarringly out of place tracks as it gave the soundtrack far greater cohesion. I also felt the characterisation of Arthur feels more consistent. Great job.
