Having not seen any of Job Willin's edits before this one piqued my curiosity. Both of the two new JP incarnations have a multitude of issues and this edit does a great job of jettisoning a lot of the chaff. The flashback structure works very well and the switches between now and 3 years previous are handled very well both visually and narratively for the most part. My only gripe would be that I felt all the flashback should have ended after the Island is destroyed around halfway through the edit. It did feel after that point a bit like I was watching two films at the same time and became a little less coherent narratively for me personally. I'm pretty sure those more familiar with the films may not have that issue though An excellent idea for an edit executed brilliantly for the most part that I'm sure fans of the franchise will enjoy greatly. Great job!
