Cuts removed/added/extended :
Plenty of scenes were altered, too much to mention, but most of all these 5 scenes were really changed or even completely deleted:
1. The stylist scenes: I reduced his gay behaviour and a lot of flat jokes that came with it. He still seems gay and special, but his appearance is a lot shorter and will not leave much of an impression.
2. The Cable Car scene: What I did is, I deleted the cable car owner form the movie. His acting is so over the top and he is just not funny, but he spoils a cool car chase action scene.
3. Stanley goes to vomit scene: Well, he still does, but this scene is much shorter. What was supposed to be funny, was not so much. Now he is more of a man.
4. The Rollercoaster Mourge Ride scene: The entire scene was unrealistic to the max, so I tried to reduce the size of the cave and get rid of the wagon drive scenes. It worked pretty well.
5. The thermite plasma explosion: Thermite plasma is not your usual bomb or explosive. It is hot like hell and causes a HUGE explosion. And because Stan could never survive to be blown away by that, I changed that, so now he escapes the explosion. I am very proud of this editing work.
The Rock was a blast in the theater, but re-watching at home was getting tedious... this edit is much more enjoyable for repeat viewings (less groan-inducing scenes). The only noticeable cut is during the thermite explosion, but there isn't much there to work with as far as fixing it.
