I love the original movies, warts and all. That said, this is a great edit. It makes what is for me an already enjoyable movie even better.

The faster shift into the grid was a good decision. There is just enough preamble to get a sense of Sam's issues with his dad disappearing on him. Then we are off on the digital adventure without dwelling on things. This pace acceleration works throughout the edit without getting too frantic anywhere.

Each character is improved with the trims. Wakeupkeo definitely achieves the goal with Quorra--she comes across much better than the release version (really my biggest quibble with it). The decision to keep to only Clu with the digitized young Kevin face works; it's subtle but effective. Also not dwelling on the extended background on the Isos worked. There's enough to get a sense of what happened, where Quorra comes from, and the relationship & responsibility Kevin feels.

The trims at the end were really effective. No need to draw that out. And finally, the ending credit rescore was totally right.
