Brief Synopsis:
It seems like Alcatraz was just reopened – but this time as a true action ride. The Rock minus lame jokes, minus goofy moments, minus incredibility = full throttle action.
Intention:
THE ROCK is still one of the most successful action movies of all time and it ranks very high in my personal ranking of great entertaining movies, just because the action scenes were so well edited, the score is so great and the actors are just brilliant. Connery – Cage are a great couple. Too bad there never was a part 2. But as I watched the movie again and again, the annoying things about it became more and more obvious, which made me hardly enjoy the movie anymore. Lame jokes, most of the time by people which are unimportant for the plot, and way over the top scenes, which became so embarrassing, spoiled the fun. So I decided that something needed to be done, to make this the movie I could watch over and over again, and I think I succeeded 100%. This fanedit is not so much shorter than the original, but the number of cuts is immense. Hopefully you won’t realize a single one of them.
Special Thanks:
Thanks to Heinrich, Winnie, Nono and everyone else involved in this.

Editing Details:
Your way to achieve your intention:

By eliminating the thread. Search and destroy.
Cuts and Additions:

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.
