Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye is just what I would expect from JasonN. Tight editing in both video and audio, with no technical flaws whatsoever. A strident cutlist that can border on the overly chopped. And a highly enjoyable fanedit, to boot.

EDITING (TECHNICAL): 10/10
EDITING (CUTLIST): 8.5/10
As always, this fanedit was built to please its fanedtor first and foremost. So it is no real critique when I say that removing the Maggie/hacker friend arrest did not work for me. When they come back later in the helicopter, it feels very tacked on. The addition of Soundwave was a really cool idea and was delivered impeccably. The epilogue, however, did not so much. I like the concept, but with the current execution it also feels too tacked on. I also think removing the Army/Sector 7 confrontation had a negative impact on the flow of the story, as it is not quite obvious why all of the sudden Sector 7 is deferring entirely to Sam.
All that said, this movie is exactly what I’d expect from JasonN: a technically flawless fanedit that delivers a significantly more serious tone to movie that desperately needed it. The tone of this fanedit is almost completely different than the source material, especially after we get past all the original awkward features and into the action.
