This edit improves upon the original. This was always a very good movie that was a bit too long, and this edit quickens the pace some in parts without losing anything too important in my opinion. Technically, great edit. No audio or visual evidence of awkward cutting or anything like that. If this were in HD it would replace the original for me; very good job.
I enjoyed the pacing and flow of this edit. Although I missed the amazing chase sequence at the beginning of the original, I appreciate that it was overlong and did not really add anything to the plot, although the outcome of the chase does now seem a little abrupt.
I did not notice any of the audio and video edits and it felt just like watching an original move.
