Brief Synopsis:
This edit keeps the focus on the .38 by removing a few subplots and changing the schmaltzy tacked on ‘twist’ ending to something more plausible. It makes Joe a criminal and better fits his actions and attitude throughout the film.
Intention:
Anyone that has seen the original will remember that this film was a style over substance action film that (IMO) wasn’t all that bad. However there were a few scenes and subplots that I felt didn’t belong and either slowed the film down or took the focus off the main storyline. My intent was to keep the focus on the .38 by removing a few subplots and changing the schmaltzy tacked on ‘twist’ ending to something more plausible. This makes Joe a criminal and better fits his actions and attitude throughout the film.
Special Thanks:
Special thanks to Mollo for providing a awesome gunshot sound clip and ThrowgnCpr, Boon23, Lewis886 and AvP for answering my never ending editing questions!

Cuts and Additions:
The Changes: !!!-Includes Major Spoilers-!!!

Added New Intro Credits.
Removed “Flash Forward” Intro
Removed first scene of Oleg and Nick playing hockey in Joes basement
Trimmed some minor dialog and reordered a few ‘flashback’ scenes for better effect.
Complete Removal of the pedophile subplot from the film as I felt it just didn’t belong in this film, even though it was a really good/creepy scene.
Removed any mention of Joey being an undercover cop (hence the title: True Crime Edition) because it just didnt make sense IMO and seemed like a twist for twists sake. Now Joey is a criminal through and through.
Trimmed and Restructured Pimp vs Joe Diner Fight and dialog.
Removed everything after Joe “Dies” in Wife’s arms. No fake funeral, No happy ending
Added New Closing Credits.
