I have watched this fanedit.
Besides the good editing quality it had a few volume issues, when the audio was suddenly loud and then again silent (about 3 times in the movie). I was not a huge fan of the original, even though it is Sam Mendes and Jake Gyllenhall. I loved the subtitles option.
The fanedit also left me kind of unimpressed. Yes, they were at war and didn’t get a chance to even shoot. So what? Unfortunately I cannot say this was really much improved.
3 of 5 from me.
