Brief Synopsis:
This is a much faster paced action ride about stealing cars that removes about all of the things that were so irritating in the original. Don’t even think about fastening your seat belts.
(Try to) Remove all of the things that irritated me about the movie & pick up the pace.

Additional Notes:
If you watch the original trailer, its like the film released has shifted from a slick, summer action flick in the vain of other Cage / Bruckheimer vehicles & a big budget homage to the H.B. Halicki Original, To a more family accessible night at the movies. I'm sure they saw the PG-13 money horse here, but the movies about stealing cars!!! & the end is a 30min Joyride!!! I'm pretty sure reshoots & lots of re-re-edits ensued. This is all I saw when I first watched it (More common today) & it really bugged me. Cut to 2008 & I find Fanedit.org. That inspired me to give this a shot. So I went trough the movie removing & re-ordering everything that irritated me, then I did it again. What came from it is, the closest I can get to, (what I think) the original idea for the film was. Obviously its still got a ton of problems (i.e. some of the looping to get rid of swearing). & not colour corrected like I would like (Would love to go through & make it less blockbuster looking) but its pretty much there. So for my 1st fan-edit I present Gone In 60 Seconds – Cut To The Chase. Hope you enjoy.
Special Thanks:
Thanks to JMB for his Batman Begins: Dark Cut which made me finish this.

A slick Fanfix that improves the original quite a bit. The cuts are done with care and aren't intrusive neither visually nor aurally. Nothing felt missing and everything made sense. The video quality is what it is, but you get used to it.

90 minutes of fun, skillfully put together by Captainschmidlap!

I enjoyed the faster pace and the editing decisions.
No plot holes and ti’s just a fun ride.

If there was a DVD version, the video quality would be better and would get an 8 from me.
As it is, the AVI is decent enough quality and giving it a 7.
