So like seemingly everyone, I hated KOTCS too, and to be blunt, this edit definitely improved my enjoyment of it. All the little, obnoxious, obviously late George Lucas-written moments are removed, and the movie definitely like a somewhat fitting and appropriate sequel to the original three.
The technical aspect of this edit was really perfect. The video quality was tremendous for 720p (I would've guessed it was 1080p), and the sound and video editing was completely on point.
However, I ended up watching this in conjunction with Q2's KOTCS edit, and I did find this version cut out a little bit too much of the first act. So much so, I kept rewinding, wondering why Indy was doing this, or why he was at a particular location. The movie still works to a degree, but when compared to Q2's, I found the latter to be much easier to follow and improved my enjoyment of the story even more -- unfortunately for me, the video quality of Q2's isn't nearly as good as this one.
