Similar to CTRTL's edit of RELOADED, this edit of REVOLUTIONS is a fairly straightforward cut with nothing groundbreaking but a lot of nice minor edits. Video/Audio quality and editing is excellent, as the only thing that hints at this being a fanedit are the beginning and ending credits. While the Hacked edits are still my favorite, CTRTL's edits are a nice choice if you prefer something a little less ambitious.

The second part of the trimmed sequels edition. I liked it. It was a true improvement to Revolutions and kept me entertained. I think the editor addressed most of the things that needed addressing without destroying the plot or leaving plot holes.
