As I continue on my hunt for the perfect fanedit (for me) for this movie, I have to say this one is good, but not great. I feel like the removal of Anakin's flight at the end messed up the whole ending, as there was neither a story anchor nor a visible reason for what happened. Also, why oh why leave in the virgin birth? But props for doing a great job of removing R2 and C3PO. Their inclusion just upsets me more and more every time I watch these movies. I mean, the fact than nothing happens to anyone not related to the characters of the original movies is such a contrived, BS storytelling fail. Everything else felt pretty good, but it is not going to beat out my current favorite, even though it ticked a few more of my wants overall, it just wasn't as coherent of a story.

Also, having just watched this movie 3 times in 3 days, I realized that Boss Nass is not even a gungan... or at least he bear ZERO resemblance to one. WTF. Also, this has to be one of the worst lightsaber duels in the entire series. Maul could have easily killed both jedi numerous times by just DENYING THEM A SAFE PLACE TO LAND. Stop politely stepping back so that you can all continue. LOL. The whole sequence is so over choreographed and under thought that its maddening.

Anyway, this edit is good if you want something new, but In my opinion under delivers in the narrative by removing to many elements that tie things together.
