This will be a short & sweet review,as I've an aversion when it comes to judging peoples hard work that was not done in the name of profit.

Not going to spoil anything for anyone so I'll just say that the editing is top notch & you would be hard pressed to not go along with the new more literal narrative as ssj did a hell of a job syncing up the timings with the right moments.
As I'm sure you all know,sound plays an important role in setting the mood of a scene and overall movie,so the sound does get in the way a lot when it comes to adding jokes,even if they fit perfectly with the scene.But ssj does a good job of pulling you back into his version when you might feel like the serious nature of the visuals are trying to claw back into your enjoyment.


Seriously while i writing this I'm laughing out loud again at some of the scenes that stuck in me head,thanks ssj for the craic man!

Finally found time to watch the edit. I didn't know what to expect, really.
And so, when the word 'satire' appeared on screen - I've put my faith in it, so to speak.
Generally, the edit manages to remain funny and satirical throughout.
As far as editing goes, the quality is top notch. The edits were seamless, for the most part.
I also liked the Monica Bellucci promo video - that was hilarious, as well.

All in all, very good edit ssj :)

I have no idea what ssj does for a day job, but I really hope someone is paying him a large sum of of money to make people laugh. The concept behind this edit seems like it might make a funny 3 or 4 minute clip but would get really tiresome over the course of a feature length movie. And that's where ssj's comedic gift shines through. It's funny end to end. Funnier than most "comedies" released these days. And I'll just assume it was technically edited well, because I was laughing too damn hard to notice anything out of place. With fanediting, once you have the basics down, it's fairly easy enough to take source material, cut out the stuff you don't want, and present something new. But to do that and then take it a step further by rewriting the script (you really should have given yourself a screenwriting credit at the end) to the point where the entire concept is flipped on its head and becomes a brilliant satire of itself? Damn. We're looking at some next level shit right here. Well done, ssj.

Hilarious edit. My wife and I didn't get to this in time for Easter which is fine since we don't believe in bunnies. At least I watched this on a Sunday for maximum damnation. We both laughed out loud many times. I preferred this to ssj's excellent Crouching Dragon - that one was hilarious in a really out there, "random" way. This one is coherent and humorously skewers religious dogma throughout. *Unrelated to edit* I will absolutely never watch the ubercheap DVD I picked up of 'Passion of the Christ' but HOLY BALLS THE REAL MOVIE WITH NO SUBTITLES IS INSANE.

Anyway, ssj doesn't just take cheap shots. He makes some damn good points throughout. But most importantly, it's funny. There are so many great lines that I can't wait to rewatch just to catch. We were often laughing really hard and not reading. Some of my favorites that I recall are Mel Goblin and Grimpson, Fig tree hater, the Jesus Christ Superstar references, "End psychic transmission," and my favorite thing in the whole movie (that my wife and I have been saying to each other constantly since yesterday: "queue - the - f$#@ - up." Great job!

P.S. Was that a version of the Crouching Dragon trailer music played over the end credits? That track was really catchy so it stood out to me.

God is dead because ssj killed him.

This fanedit was absolutely hysterical. I liked it just a smidge more than ssj's first edit, "Crouching Dragon - The Tiger Lily Cut". Highly recommended for anybody who can have a laugh at Yeshua.

Bonus points for a very well spoken audio commentary track.
