At last. A version of AotC that I can stomach. You read through everyones edits and you still fear they’ll leave something in that you’ll cringe at. For me, this edit pretty much reached all my expectations. Removal of overlong chases and fight scenes, Dex the restaurant owner, ‘Younglings’ and finally making the ‘love scene’ between Anakin and Padme actually work- makes this film a much more positive experience. Jar Jar was totally tolerable, the love developing between Padme and Anakin was dealt with so much better – it wasn’t awkward at all in this version.

I always felt that AotC plodded along, better than TPM, but still plodded and was dogged with horrible dialogue and kiddie scenes. ALL gone in this version.

Only one tiny annoyance. Anakin whinges on Tattooine. Obi Wan and the whole ‘He’s holding me back – n’yah’ – that could go. Oh and perhaps the ‘death sticks’ scene in the bar on Coruscant.

I’ve not seen other versions – but this was damn near perfect – I’d well recommend it. Also, the Phantom Editor gives commentary on the DVD – well worth listening too.

I had to add this. I’m not sure if something is up with the sound on this – I’m watching in 2.0, but alot of the dialogue seemed quieter than it should have been, compared with the rest of the sounds.
