Apart from video quality (and sometomes audio editing) being below standard (the edit is from 2008), everything else is well done.
The idea for this is remarkable. Since the narration is such a big part of the original film, I’d thought it wouldn’t work that well, but it does. It actually changes the style and even the genre of the film.
Every fan of the original should experience this edit.
This is one of the first fanedits I saw many years ago, and it made me realise how irritating the voiceover is in the original. I cannot watch Fight Club anymore, this edit is definitely superior for me. The AV quality isn't the best, and sometimes it's obvious the voiceover has been removed, but these are honestly minor gripes compared to the improvements this edit makes to the original.
No narration turns this movie into a completely different experience. It won't replace the 'original', but I'll be watching this version every so often whenever I'm in the mood to watch Fight Club again.
Let me begin with saying that I've watched the original dozens and dozens of times. This is one of my favorite movies and I'll never get tired of it. In that light, because of the lack of narration I often found myself listening closer... and closer... and watching closer... listening for that narration... and because of this, I noticed uncountable details in the video itself that I've never noticed before. Did you ever notice the toilet paper next to the toilet filled with used condoms? Did you ever notice the big metal thing that sits up on the refrigerator? Notice all of those clamp lights scattered about the kitchen? Or how about the saran wrap that lined the trays they were using as forms for soap?
This movie is so much more deep without narration. The story tells itself, it doesn't need narration. In the void of the voice over, I saw a rain forest of details that I never was able to notice because I was too busy listening to and analyzing the voice...
If you're a fight club fan, you must see this at least once!
Visual editing gets a 6 because it's a nice neutral number because there was absolutely zero visual editing. Audio editing gets a 10 because there were zero moments where the audio was choppy or felt edited what-so-ever. The narrative gets an 9 because there is no narration... those parts are missing, but 9 is still a very positive number because it helps the story intensely. Audio/Video quality gets a 10 because it's DVD quality or better. Enjoyment is easily a 10. I may re-watch this edit because it was so enjoyable....
But I could be bias (I am). This is one of my favorite movies ever, after all. :-)
