Audio/Video Quality: The Audio and Video Quality of the DVD version of this edit was allright. Nothing special specially by today standards but your eyes wil not be damaged after the end credits appear on TV.
Visual Editing: A lot of small changes were made in this edit. Most of themes were cuts that were not very impressive. There were some added scenes one of which I consider to damage the overall experience.
Audio Editing: The Audio Editing was pair to its visual counterpart. Not having to hear the uncontinuous stupid nonsenses that we are used to from Jar Jar Bink's is clearly the best thing in this fan edition.
Narrative: The narrative is a little darker than in the original. While I found this to be good, I realised that it could be a little boring for the children, something that does not happen with the rest of the movies.
Enjoyment: The movie was a good entertainment to watch but I felt nothing really special. Most of the changes were good but I found the podrace a little too long, something that I do not originally feeel.

I liked it but still too much Jar Jar and too much silly comments from Anakin in the end battle. Overall it was a good edit. I am really impressed by the overall skill of the editors on this site. I would give it a 6.5-7/10. Still think the Phantom Edit is the best all around. Keep up the good work!
Well done Adigitalman. I gave you 8/10. I gave Phantom Edit 9/10. Overall I feel phantom editor did a slightly better job staying focused on story and keeping it paced well and cutting cutting cutting. On the other hand you deserve a great deal of credit. With the exception of a few minor sound edit glitches I noticed in an attempt to silence jar jar, the editing was well done and the video quality was maintained better than Phantom Edit.
Clearly you were a big fan of the pod race and added onto it. It is most certainly the most enjoyable action sequence other than the saber battle at end. But it does drag a bit too long and is too childish in your version for my taste. Better to keep the movie moving quickly and keep it under 2 hours. On a positive note, I think I like your cut of the end battle sequence possibly more than Phantom Editors. He left in a couple lines from Anakin and a few more jar jar antics than I cared for. On a negative note, you left in the flying through the planet’s core and subsequent waterfall sequence that is possibly the most retarded sequence in the whole movie.
All in all, criticisms aside, 8/10 is pretty high marks from my critical ass.
