The editor has done a brilliant job coaxing a decent story from some pretty shoddy material. It felt much more true to the source than the movie. By the end of this edit I was wanting more and wishing that the rest of the film had given anything else worthwhile to use. Turning this into a pilot to a TV series was a great choice and worked as a foundation to use my imagination to complete the story.
The edits were all smooth and seamless but what really stood out to me was how much livelier everything felt. It takes a real master of pacing to pull excitement from monotony. The audio was good and the color grading was perfect for the new tone. All in all this is likely the best anyone could do with this mess and was really enjoyable to watch.
Good job and thank you, ironman23!
