I liked the original film and like this edit enough to write it up in detail here: https://letterboxd.com/nottheacademy/film/silent-hill/

Main points from that full review are:
-the film of course works so much better without the Bean-scenes. However, the beginning/ending bookends with him go nowhere with the current ending. The theatrical ending actually has impact, makes sense, and would justify his two scenes being included, so that's a real loss.
-the film overall could use a bit of brightening up in some scenes...I wish the faneditor had been able to do that
-WAY too much exposition all at the end...literally like 15 minutes of explaining, explaining. At least the flashback scenes (which there is now smartly no voiceover with) could be moved. I suggest how in the full review above.

Overall, a great improvement on the original release, and it replaces it for me. I can't consider it definitive without that ending though, so I'm waiting for a version 4 (fingers crossed).
