Having read the other reviews here, I came to this edit with high expectations, and I was not disappointed. I'm a fan of the theatrical cut, but I also wished the movie ended earlier. I've since read some reviews that made me appreciate the original ending more, but having now seen this edit, I think the ending here is quite satisfying.
I also appreciated the extended dance sequence and the minor trims that made the characters more consistent. This edit is rock solid, the only issue I noticed which others have commented on is the artifacts in certain scenes. A larger encode would make this a perfect edit for me. Well done!
Perfect Edit. I remember watching Ex Machina when it came out and thinking it was one of the best movies I had seen but I still felt that the ending should have been earlier and the dance scene should have been more longer. Both are masterfully done by thecuddlyninja as well as cutting the religious talking moments which I didn't even realise were cut. Truly flawless work.
This fanedit made a solid movie excellent.
I remember thinking on first watching that it should've ended exactly like this. Just that alone made this whole lot better. "No god, more dancing" is just icing on the cake :)
