Another fan tackles another Christopher Reeve Superman film. I'll never get sick of them. Here, the editor comes up with some cool new ideas. I specifically liked the new ending scene w/ Lois. You can tell a lot of time and effort was put into some of these edits. I took a few points off in audio editing because I found a few jarring transitions that need to be polished. Overall it's worth checking out for any die hard fan of Superman.

Adigitalman created a great foundation with his amalgamation of Superman III and IV, but TheSpiedSniper has developed that take into a soulful experience, establishing more resonant characterization for all involved. Clark's journey to Kansas is made all the more personal with the inclusion of the farm scene from Part IV. His interactions with Lana are salvaged and now serve to confirm Clark's devotion to Lois by the end of the film. Lex's nuclear plot serves as a strong enough plot motivation, and TheSniedSniper has retained Adigitalman's brilliant choice to incorporate the Paris sequence from Part II that is otherwise missing from The Donner Cut. To conclude, this edit serves as a stellar follow up to Wraith's EPIC Superman edit and offers a fitting coda for Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent, that's only minorly minorly minorly marred by some cheap effects work from Part IV. Also, this has no bearing on my rating, but it's a shame that there's no way to incorporate the computer/transformation scenes from III without breaking the plot.

A Digital Man's SUPERMAN REDEEMED is considered a fan edit classic by many. It was one of my first introductions to the concept of fan editing and made me fall in love with creative process.

This is a very nice HD update/expansion of ADM's Superman Redeemed.

While it uses the best elements of Superman III & IV, much like the original fan edit, it can not escape being a Super-Frankenstein narrative and requires a certain amount of goodwill by the viewer. For example, Lois is going to Jamaica for vacation at the beginning at the movie, but is present throughout the entire film but then talks about Jamaica in the closing scene.

But on the whole, a very entering and impressive watch. I thought the whole transition to Evil Superman was exceptionally well done and much improved over the ADM version. The Superman bathing in the Sun and Superman Lives newspaper headline was very clever.

The ending does feel a bit abrupt/awkward to me. I think I would have kept the Lex and Lenny scene and cut before Lois looks at Lana's ring. Also, I think the final Superman voice over about us all being one world would have played much stronger over the imagery of Kal-el flying above the Earth rather than restoring the Tower of Pisa. But I did greatly appreciated the mid-credit scene and going to black on the kiss.

A good remake of a classic fan edit.

I can say for sure that this edit manages to elevate both movies, especially Superman IV, to more than the sum of their parts. I've heard it said that Superman III is a bad idea done well, and Superman IV is a good idea done poorly. Largely following the plot of IV while integrating the good parts from III is what this edit does, and it's a wise approach, I'm a believer, at least, in the concept.

I can't help but think, however, that the execution was a little too clunky and awkward in places. I think lifting the Eiffel Tower scene from Superman II, for example, is a mistake. Reusing the scene ultimately breaks continuity with the the theatrical cut, meaning you are can only watch this with the Donner Cut of II. And while I think cutting back and forth between III and IV works, the scenes from Superman Returns did not integrate well. I also believe the same establishing shot of The Daily Planet was used at least three times, which seemed a little clunky. The Lana Lang/Smallville scenes are nice, but they seem more a diversion than anything that actually contributes to the plot of the movie. I'd like to say they should be integrated better, but I don't exactly know how I'd go about doing it.

More tweaking and perhaps this fun experiment might just work. I love Superman III too much for this to ever replace it, but I can't say I wasn't thoroughly entertained by this edit.

There is some great feedback here. You’ve given me a lot to think about. I will be experimenting for sure. Thanks again.

There is some fantastic buildup to the start of the movie with the way the Fanedit opening credit sequences naturally fade in and out followed by the custom opening summary which serves as a great way to bring viewers up to speed on the events of the previous two films without hindering the runtime, adding to this buildup are the custom opening credit calls which provide an insightful lens into the view of the world as if the viewer is seeing said world through the larger than life perspective of the Man Of Steel himself.

The use of J&L cuts effectively help to bypass and remove most of the superfluous subplots and comedic elements and what remains is a far more focused narrative that gives the Man Of Steel a much more defined and compelling story arc and thanks to the use of Topaz AI both films seamlessly join together like a completed puzzle piece and some examples of this perfect cohesion are the news broadcasts utilised during Film 3’s mountain scene that effectively transition to the main crisis issue of Film 4 expressed during the classroom scene.

The second instance would be how you combined the sickness of Nuclear Man with his kryptonite sickness or in the case of your edit the corrupting radiation poisoning ontop of the energy gain from the crystal module and the Nuclear Man scratch with all ultimately tying that organic storytelling thread around protagonist and antagonist making there respective duels a lot more personal and thematic and I include the junkyard battle in this analysis as well and well that battle was already personal it’s newfound connection to the whole Nuclear Man scratch and sun’s energy amplifies the triumphant feeling of that duels conclusion.

The placement of what is now the mid credits scene serves as not only a great conclusion to the Christopher Reeves Superman saga but the key framing and transitioning from colour to sepia and from sepia to colour felt natural and not only provided that meaningful sense of nostalgia but also gave that feeling of a brighter future for both the people of Metropolis and of course Clark & Lois's relationship, though I do have a few nitpicks though there not about how the relationship was handled I think you utilised that aspect and scene really well.

There are two sound issues with the first feeling like the audio jumps a bit around the 1:10:10 to 1:10:11 hour marks and a sharp rise and drop in audio volume from the 1:10:53 to 1:10:56 hour marks, finally during the reunion dance scene there is a crotch gag that is a little on the cringey side but other than those little things I would honestly say that this is a huge improved over the theatrical cuts of these two films.
