As someone who hasn't watched 3 or 4, I came in with no bias.
I thought that the fact ADigitalMan edited 2 movies together it would be noticeable. It was actually the opposite. The 2 movies worked together seamlessly. I had to search up what parts he took from both movies to understand what he edited. Overall, pretty good edit. I recommend it to anyone who wants to rewatch the Christopher Reeve movies.
Great edit! I really liked it. Even though not perfect and certainly not as good as the first two movies, the flaws come from the original movies that are unfixable. Definitely replaces III and IV for me.
Keeping this short as most of what I have to say has already been said already.
Audio: This was the largest flaw of the edit. There are quite a few cut's that are very abrupt and some just sound strange.
Video: It was overall pretty good. I could nitpick but no need. The enjoyment of the edit made the quality a second thought.
Narrative/Enjoyment: 99% of the merging of the two movies were done excellently. As it was said in another review. I would have preferred to see Supes get sick after the scratch before he went bizarro. I rewinded this part 3 times thinking i looked away and missed something. This is the only part of the edit that really jumped out at me that this was a fanedit. Everything else was done pretty spot on.
A much more enjoyable version of those two movies. Not perfect but it does replace part 3 and 4 and me
This edit is proof of the power of fan editing. Two crappy sequels combine to make one fluid and interesting story. The amazing part is that the whole story stayed together from start to finish and it was a satisfying finish at that.
My nitpicks with some of the editors choices:
1. I don't think Luthor's prison escape was needed. We never saw Ned Beatty and Valerie Perrine again in the movie so it seemed a little awkward.
2. The edit of the part about sending Lois on the first Concorde with "Outta here" removed was probably unnecessary. I don't think the Concorde ever flew out of Bermuda. Clark had been to Smallville and back twice in the meantime, so we could really just assume Lois finished her vacation and came back to work.
3. The edit of Lois talking to Perry and Clark was pretty noticeable and maybe unnecessary.
I know this edit has been around a long time, but hey - it's new to me.
