Man of Steel: The Outsider Edit, skillfully crafted by Wakeupkeo, is a remarkable reimagining of Zack Snyder's superhero epic that breathes new life into the iconic story of Superman. This fan edit is a testament to the power of passionate storytelling and showcases the immense talent of its creator.

From the opening moments, it becomes evident that The Outsider Edit is a labor of love. Wakeupkeo expertly trims unnecessary subplots, streamlines the narrative, and injects a fresh perspective into the film, resulting in a more focused and engaging viewing experience. The pacing is tight, allowing for an immersive journey that captivates from start to finish.

One of the standout aspects of this edit is its commitment to exploring the deeper layers of Superman's character. Wakeupkeo deftly balances the superhero's superhuman abilities with his emotional struggles, presenting a more nuanced and relatable portrayal of the Man of Steel. The added character moments and subtle alterations to certain scenes make the story more cohesive and emotionally resonant.

The visual and audio quality of The Outsider Edit is exceptional. The editing seamlessly blends the original footage with new additions, creating a cohesive and polished final product. The color grading and visual effects enhancements contribute to a visually stunning presentation that is on par with the quality of a professional production.

The inclusion of Hans Zimmer's iconic score, combined with strategically placed sound effects, enhances the intensity of the action sequences and heightens the emotional impact of pivotal moments. The audio remixing work is exemplary, delivering an immersive and powerful auditory experience that elevates the overall viewing pleasure.

Furthermore, Wakeupkeo's editing choices in terms of restructuring certain scenes and altering the narrative flow demonstrate a deep understanding of the source material. These changes serve to strengthen the themes and messages explored in Man of Steel, allowing for a more cohesive and satisfying story arc.

It is worth noting that The Outsider Edit assumes familiarity with the original film. While this fan edit enhances the overall experience, newcomers to Man of Steel may find certain aspects less clear or concise without the context provided in the original version.

In conclusion, Man of Steel: The Outsider Edit is a masterful fan edit that reinvigorates Zack Snyder's vision and delivers an even more impactful portrayal of Superman. Wakeupkeo's dedication and expertise shine through every frame, resulting in a mesmerizing and emotionally charged experience. For fans of the superhero genre or those seeking a fresh take on a beloved story, this fan edit is an absolute must-watch.

I loved. I already saw several of his edits wonder woman, batman v superman, suicide squad and obviously this one and I think that regular and decent movies are turned into very good movies. I have always been more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan and I had been quite disappointed by the movies they had released, but with these edits I think they look better than many Marvel movies. Thank you for all of your work.

After sifting through work and all the looming pandemic hubbub, I finally found the time to watch some fan edits. The edit of the hour this time around is *drum roll*.... Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice Part 1 - The Outsider Edit by Wakeupkeo. This man really did a good job of turning a terrible film with some splendid scenes and ideas into a surprisingly brilliant movie. This edit of Man of Steel was able to remind me of the good things that Man of Steel does while expanding on those ten fold.

One of those things being, Jonathan Kent was at times the DC equivalent to Uncle Ben until he does a complete 180 to shame Clark. All of that is now gone. The death of Jonathan Kent was super well done here (no spoilers for those who don't want it). It had always irritated me that he just gave a hand wave telling Clark to stay back recognizing he could've saved him anyway. Next, I want to say that the overall plot of this movie is no longer jumbled up like a pile of LEGO's on the floor. On the subject of messages, this edit does a better job of Zack Snyder's intent of "How our real world would react to Superman coming to Earth?" with flying colors. All of the most over the top elements are also withdrawn, such as the scene where he wrecks that guy's truck. The message of "It's not worth it." is perfectly conveyed since Wakeupkeo has cut the aforementioned truck wreckage scene. Speaking of over the top, all shots of the bystanders being harmed by the devastating battle property damage have all been cut. I see that the editor tries to emulate the Marvel way of saving most property damage in battles when people are either evacuated or away, despite some forgivable exceptions. The inclusion of the BVS Jonathan Kent reflection scene with some trims was also a great addition to the movie. For the sake of time, I will now move on to the negatives as well as the conclusion.

I would say the only negative of this edit is arranging the end of the bus and bully flashbacks at the credits. Not only that, but also the exclusion of Superman's first flight scene with Hans Zimmer's breathtaking theme swelling. It is a magnificent scene that gives Henry Cavill's Superman the much needed character that Henry deserves. With all of that aside I don't have much to state about this edit that hasn't already been said. Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice Part 1 streamlines and replaces the original movie itself. I see an extremely promising future for Wakeupkeo, well done.

This is a really streamlined cut of MoS with some really great ideas, particularly adding the mountain top talk with Pa Kent's "ghost" to the end and the reimagining of his death.

However, I think there's too much great stuff cut that's necessary to let the film breathe.

The mountain top scene with Pa feels too truncated and the First Flight scene is absolutely something that should be reinserted.

Very good edit. This streamlined cut of the movie is perfect if you want the bare bones of this wonderful film. It does not surpass the original but it is well worth a watch!
