This is a tremendous edit and almost flawless in its execution. The A/V-editing is perfect, except a few instances that appear when AWE takes over. As other have already noted, the transition from DMC is imperfect. The idea is good and I like the montage, but the fade-to-black feels to quick, too abrupt. I also agree that the audio in the Tia Dalma-sequence dips in quality a few times. DSM2337's cuts are otherwise spotless.

Heart of the Maelstrom is, apart from the nitpicks above, a great fan edit (with a good title!). It improves both films and turns them into a single, action-packed adventure. The Narrative is, considering the amount trimmed, still clear and even more focused. A lot of nonsense is gone. Personally, I feel the wedding on the ship could've stayed. A reminder of the beginning, if nothing else.

Enjoyable and recommended!
