It was superb. This is the kind of edit that makes me so happy to be on this site. I remember seeing the theatrical version in theaters, and on the way home kept thinking, "I can't wait to see someone fanedit that movie." I didn't hate the theatrical version, I just was a little bored and found it off-putting. It had so many extra jokes and quips that frankly weren't funny and just slowed the movie down. Was too self-indulgent. But I loved this edit. It perfectly shaved down all the excess crap, and gave me a fun and entertaining movie. Amazing work. I have no complaints, only praise.

I thought the theatrical version of GOTG2 was... "fine". I really enjoyed the story and most of the character arcs. My only real gripe was with some of the humour coming at the expense of more dramatic moments. This is edit solves most of if not all of those problems. It's been a long time since I watched the theatrical so I can't be entirely sure what was cut but boy oh boy does the main narrative and all those character moments shine much more than I remember!

Video and audio quality is fine, not the best, but that hasn't stopped it replacing my Blu-Ray from now on. Great work!

Aside from a few issues of having a joke payoff without it, really, having been setup, this was an excellent edit. I would recommend this over the theatrical cut any time.

It's been a few weeks since I watched this but I just wanted to say it's a fantastic edit.
I found Mantis and Drax to be somewhat annoying in the theatrical cut, especially Drax in contrast to how his character was in the first film. rb has cut alot of the jokes that didn't work. I'll drop a point for the lack of Stan - or was he there? if so I apologise in advance.

This is pretty much the film we should have gotten although I wish there was a way to remove pac-man, alas it wouldn't be possible in way that makes the fight jarring and I can't hold that against rb.

Give yourself a pat on the back because this edit fits perfectly into the continuity of volume 1 and Infinity wars.

This is one of those rare edits that turn a movie I strongly disliked into one I'll rewatch and enjoy again for years to come. The theatrical cut of this movie suffered terribly from lame and obnoxious jokes that never knew when to end, and which had a way of ruining good moments. This edit flows smoothly without it ever being slightly apparent that something is missing. I watched this with a friend who is a big fan of the original, and even he didn't notice anything missing. So I'd say all around it holds up very well.

That said, we did miss the full opening Marvel title and regret it being sped up. The video quality is, as the editor puts it, best enjoyed with the expectation of a softer HD experience, due to a lengthy conversion process. And there is one instance where I noticed a cut between scenes could be heard at the 40 minute mark. These nitpicks are nothing though when faced with such a vastly superior version of the film.
