As far as edits go, this is a nearly flawless one and fixes the movie wholly. That's not to say it's on par with T1 or T2, but it's a solid entry into the series now. If I had to rate the movie itself after the edit, it's a solid 7/10, which is a pretty big leap from the 5/10 I originally gave it. Unfortunately with weak films it's not exactly possible to fix everything wrong with them as some elements are necessary tot he story and if they're originally films in a hokey way, that hokeyness will remain. Also a lot of the CGI in this film was kind of poorly done (no fault of the edit), so there are just some natural weak points here.
Ultimately, if you had any hopes of T3 being redeemed, this is it. It's an excellent edit and makes the film actually good. It's a shame there's no HD option though.
