Brief Synopsis:
A guy named Guy and his buddy Buddy argue about Guy's dream girl until she mysteriously appears to be real. Could this be the moment Guy's been waiting for his whole life? Or could there be some dark secret held by this mysterious girl?
Intention:
This is an edit of Free Guy that aims to streamline the story by focusing on the relationship between Guy and Buddy before introducing more plotlines. Exposition dumps and narration are removed for a less spoon-fed story and unnecessary plot points and cameos are removed for the sake of time and enjoyment. I aim for this to be a much more emotionally impactful version of the film that doesn't retcon itself as often.
Additional Notes:
Audio is only Stereo as I still haven't figured out how surround works but you can rest assured that I'm giving you neigh Blu-Ray quality video at my signature 20MBPS video encoding.

I liked the original but wouldn't watch it again, so when I saw this and their goal, I thought I'd give it another chance. I don't know if its the lack of narration or what but something in the beginning feels off. Like, even though I'm not sure whats been cut, I can feel that there has been a cut. Where it succeeds is definitely the overall edit! My wife and I cried at the bridge scene this time. I found Taika way more entertaining than annoying this time. The humor felt more hit than miss this time and losing the cameos was a good call!

Free Guy is a great movie, but it is BLOATED with content that detracts from the overall story.

Most of this bloat is in the constant interruption of the narrative by TikTok'ers, YouTuber's, and video game "fans" who cheer on "Blue Shirt Guy." Another big problem was the ending... there were TOO many endings and narratives to "wrap up."

This Fanedit streamlines the storyline by removing the needless bloat and presenting what is probably one of the best movies of the year. Perhaps a handful of other trims would improve it even further, but this is not a complaint against the Faneditor..

Nothing trimmed is essential to the story and a key decision of the Faneditor to leave a character "dead" resolves at least one of the excess "endings."

If you haven't watched Free Guy yet, you need to... and this Fanedit is the best way to watch it.
