Agent 9 has done a great job with this edit and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It really is better in every way compared to the theatrical release and will be go to copy moving forward. I echo many of the other reviews in the technical improvements this edit provides, but most importantly for me this "feels" like a proper Terminator movie and that's the point. Well done!
Agent 9's re-working of key scenes in this edit does a lot to help resolve the many issues this film has. Marcus' new "origin" works well (The less we know about his past the better IMO) and the narrative flows a lot better. The original music cues are a nice touch, and the removal of Star as the walking talk Swiss army knife also works well. What I like most though it the re-colouring. It looks a LOT better. Thumbs up for this one.
Just Awesome... Had to check it out after all the talk, and this edit really makes Salvation a much better, easier to watch film.
The opening, the lame Marcus storyline, Star having everything people needed - All gone.
The color correction is fantastic and really makes the movie look so much better.
I agree with everyone on the plotline of John Connor vs (1) T-800, but like you guys said its out of Agent 9's control, and he did a great job here, so I can't rate him on something he had no control over.
This Edit truly makes the film so much better.... Thx.
Amazing Edit! The color correction alone is a reason to see this one. It looks like the James Cameron movies, with the blue nighttime gradient and greenish tints thorough the film. Kyle Reese storyline is altered, and the action is cut at a real nice pace. Overall, I highly recommend this one.
hey everyone, steelio here with another review. back when salvation came out, i enjoyed it but didn't love it. it didn't feel like the T4 we deserved. this edit does a great job of making it feel like the T4 we could put alongside the previous films. gone are the washed out colors. the film looks beautiful. the music was great, especially with the terminator theme added in. i'd recommend this edit to everyone. if you didn't like the original, give this a chance. it's now my definitive version. it is T4.
