Thank you once again. I didn’t remember the movie very well, so I watched your edit, and really enjoyed it. The movie seemed better than what I had seen a few years ago… Great pace, almost no cheesiness, and very few scenes with that annoying Prison Break girl.
The, I watched the unedited film, and I realized how great your fan edit was : the original cut was almost unwatchable. The intro was way too long, some scenes with Arnie were boring to death, and we were told way too much stuff about Gabriel Byrne’s character. Moreover, the coninuity of the movie was terrible (we often jumped from a scene to another). And damn, those scenes with the albino and the cat were absolutely terrible…
As a whole, I think it is now a good Arnie movie, whereas it used to be mediocre. I would just have removed 3 more things : the scene where Arnold cries, the ones with the pope, and the crowd shots in Times Square. Good job though, I can’t wait to watch your next fan edit !
