By far the best T2 edit I've seen. The pub exit scene gave me chills with that old-school exploitation soundtrack. And the hasta-la-vista being cut brought me back to my first viewing of the film when I felt it was a bit 'off'. It felt so good to watch this version, seriously! I find it odd that the terminator smiling scene was included though, but it doesn't ruin much for me. Overall still the best edit for me personally. Seamless cuts too.
A huge minus for the video quality. Only 720p would be fine if it had a proper bitrate. As it stands now I would recommend it for a small screen viewing or pick another edit. Please upload a higher bitrate one, it's preservation worthy!
The theatrical cut has always been my favourite version of T2 but this adds the best parts of the special edition and takes some of the lesser parts of the theatrical cut to forge a great new version. The most impressive part of the edit is the removal of the bad to bone audio which never ever fit well with the tone elsewhere. I've attempted to seperate some of the original dialogue in this scene myself and found it an impossible task to extract something of a high enough quality so massive repsect to the editor on his work here! The recreated titles and THX FAN intro are brilliantly done too and look completely authentic.
The only nitpick I can find in the whole edit which is just a personal opinion is the inclusion of the smile scene (albeit trimmed) I would have cut that being as the 'trust me' line was cut later. A really fab edit of what is easily one of my top 5 movies ever, it has created a bit of a quandry though as everytime I watch T2 now which is at least twice a year I will have to consider this or the theatrical. That was never an issue before darn it!!
Awesome edit, almost all changes are unnoticeable unless you are looking for them.
The bar scene / bike modifications are a mood changer and throw back to the original movie. It adds a much darker less humorous feel to the movie.
This edit took my favorite movie and somehow made it better - I always liked the gritty R feel of the Terminator but felt that T2 was edited like a PG13. The humanization of the character was a little over done and this edit takes care of it.
