Brief Synopsis:
Jurassic World is my second favourite movie in the Jurassic Park franchise but I personally find it flawed in several ways.
Intention:
Firstly, I seriously disliked the portrayal of its lead character, Claire. I really enjoy her arc but there is a variety of instances that have misogynistic undertones. From her sister's insistence that she will "understand when she's mother" to the way, the boys react to her compared to Owen and the various discussions of her relationship status. None of this is necessary to the plot and I find it odd that it's there at all. Claire is the operations manager of a billion-dollar company but she's implied to be a failure because she chooses not to be a mother. This edit aims to give Claire more agency and remove any undermining of her for her lifestyle choices and because of her gender.

Next up there is a lot of bloat that adds nothing to the story, in particular, the kid's parents' divorce which goes nowhere. When compared to the really solid deleted scenes it is perplexing to me why the studio choose to keep that plotline. This edit cuts the bloat while reinstating all purposeful deleted scenes available on the blu ray.

Lastly, I was not a fan of the overly washed out colour grade of the film. This edit replaces it with a more contrasting less green tinted look. The deleted scenes were colour matched to the new regrade.

It's a great fanedit that makes it a true and worthy sequel to the classic Jurassic Park movie and I especially like the title of the movie most of all because I am a fan of that video game that shares the same title and honestly feel like they have made that into a movie instead of these unnecessary sequels that unfortunately feels like they are beating a dead horse but I think they tried to do that but it ended up becoming that monster hunter movie instead(by the makers of the resident evil movies). I actually watched the two movies together and this one is honestly as good as the original. The only main complaint I have is audio which isn't great almost mono-like yet serviceable but can sometimes be hard to hear especially in loud situations which I assume was to match the sound quality of the deleted scenes to make the scenes transition well as he did with the visuals but you can still tell it is when those scenes come on though I don't really mind since deleted scenes never sounded that great in general, to begin with.

I liked this edit a lot, very nice improvements to a movie I already enjoyed. I agree with the other reviewers on the audio, but other than that this edit is close to flawless.

I´ve watched the original one time and was a little underwhelmed due to a lot of unnecessary plotlines which resulted for me in feeling bored.
This edit removes this and i got the feeling of a way more serious and unexpectally kind of menacing movie. I liked it very much :)

Color grading is superb from my point of view.

One little gripe: at the scene where claire hides the boys in the back of the truck the audio quality decreased. It became blunt in comparison to previous and afterwards scenes.

A wonderful edit and a true fanfix.
This edit does what it promises, and does it well. Claire is much more likeable, seems more capable, and her character arc is clearer. The deleted scenes support the narrative and the trimmed bits are hardly missed. There are still parts that can be further trimmed to improve her character (e.g., "You don't know how old your nephews are?" at 49:28) but that's optional.
Regarding the deleted scenes - they are visually perfect, and the color grading is indeed an improvement. However, there is a clear shift in the audio whenever we switch to a deleted scene. I am not sure whether it is fixable, but it is definitely noticeable.
One last note, regarding the name of the edit - I think it is not very informative and can be applied to each film in the series. I think a better name should refer to the strong theme of control. Maybe 'Out of Control' or 'Freak of Nature'.
