I love this one so much. Episode 3 is always my favourite, but there is still a lot in it that I don't like. this removes all of that fluff and streamlines it into a cohesive story. I like the reshuffles of various scenes too, it makes more sense this way.
Q2 has done a stellar job and capped off his edit of the prequel trilogy wonderfully. Thanks to his edits I can quite happily sit and watch the PT now without feeling I'm grinding my way through something just to get to something better! Thanks!
Watched this one yesterday evening, and as with the rest of the "Fall of the Jedi" Trilogy, editing is top-notch from all point of views. The feel of the story is heavily improved through the deletion of comedic and distracting elements. Also the Plot was even changed a bit in places where i didnt expect it.
All the editing is invisible (for me at least) and all the choices are really good ones.
As with th other two parts of this trilogy, this edit changes a movie i can only watch on a shallow entertaining level into a Movie i can take serious as a Star Wars movie.
I said most of what I wanted to say in my review of Fall of the Jedi episode I. Fantastic work that has renewed my enjoyment of Star Wars; something I've been unable to do since making the mistake of seeing episodes I - III in the theaters. Just seeing those once ruined Star Wars for me for years. After watching these I'm happy to say I'm going to be able to enjoy Star Wars again. I only saw the theatrical releases once each, and I hope that by watching the Fall of the Jedi series several times I can erase the blight of the originals from my mind! Thank you.
This one is rated-down slightly from the other two because I actually liked it less that episodes I or II. Not sure exactly why, maybe it couldn't be saved. I think, ultimately, that Anakin's fall to evil was just so unbelievable and baseless in the theatrical versions, that it isn't fixable. I mean, we've got one of the most evil (even if eventually redeemed) figures in the galaxy, and he became evil because he had perfectly normal teenage/young male angst. How could you ever fix that? Probably can't be done...
