This is a great edit of the film I particularly like the pacing improvements and moving the final scene earlier in the movie so that it doesn't undermine Ellie's voyage (in the original she basically acts like nothing ever happened). My only minor criticism was that in a couple of the edits you can tell that a bit has been cut as the actors have changed position too quickly (but that is inevitable with the source material). The relationship between Palmer and Ellie is improved with this edit and I like the fact that the problem of who looked after Ellie after her dad died is resolved (or at least no longer stands out as a question). Technically I can't fault the edits that were made (many of which I only spotted because I know the original so well). I would definitely recommend this edit as an improvement on the original.
