I thought it was great. I didn't know there was a good movie in there until I saw this edit. What was radically improved was the pacing. It is so much tighter and to the point than the original version. The original movie isn't anything amazing, it's a fairly generic plot with mediocre direction, but the editing now gives the film momentum and energy. The original version just plods along a snail's pace. I remember seeing the theatrical film in Imax and was incredibly bored, but this time I was engaged and entertained. I just find it remarkable when someone is able to take a movie that I had essentially written off and forgotten about, and was able to make me appreciate it. The file is in HD, no hard cuts or issues in the edit, and is definitely worthwhile. Excellent work.
Definitely does what it was set to do - bring it to feel closer in spirit to the much adored animated film and remove on the nose lines and filler plot points.
Though I still have gripes with some bits in the movie itself, I loved every editing decision in the Lean & Mean Edition.

Thank you for the kind review! I'd be interested in knowing what you would have changed about the edit, as I've been thinking myself about a possible 2.0 version of this fanedit.
