Haven't seen the original in forever, but I really liked this edit. I still don't care for the characters too much and the narrative isn't helped a ton, but at least I'm not bored ever in the movie. It's crazy fast paced and fun the entire time now. Definitely recommend this edit for anyone interested in this movie
I saw the original way back when it came out, but not since then. I don't really remember much about it, except that I did not care too much for it. This version was pretty decent. Not great, but considering what Malthus had to work, I think he did a very good job. He turned a "did not care much for it" into a good movie that is non-stop action, pretty much throughout. Nice job.
