Thank you, DigModiFicaTion. I watched this movie in the cinema and while I felt entertained, I felt a bit betrayed since I had such high hopes and was really excited, however I felt like watching a rip off of Episode IV, like many watchers did. This edit, however, made me care about the characters and what happens to them, I had to watch it all the way through. I love when an edit exposed what the makers of a movie wanted to achieve in the first place. To me, this edit makes the movie worth of being Star Wars.
Overall, this is a solid edit, though I did miss the Luke Skywalker reveal at the end, which he eliminated. Additionally, I did miss a few bits of the humor that DigModiFicaTion trimmed from the film. Though definitely some of it needed to go. Also, I agree with the-scribbling-man remark in his review that the tie fighter blowing up in the sand should have remained. Other than that the audio and video editing were superb.
