Brief Synopsis:
An extended version of M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable including all the available additional scenes.
Intention:
Unbreakable is M. Night Shyamalan’s best film. Period. I will argue that point to eternity. The camera work, pacing, everything is brilliant.

There has been one extended version of “Unbreakable” but based on the description it appears five minutes of material was cut. I decided I wanted a version as complete as possible, so I’ve reassembled “Unbreakable” adding the deleted scenes to the theatrical version. The only thing I cut were the unnecessary text at the beginning and end of the film.

For this version I used an HD source from the Blu-Ray disc. The deleted scenes on the Blu-Ray disc were SD so I had to upconvert these for the AVCHD version. Obviously the footage won’t match due to poorer quality. I tried to get it the best I could though.

I enjoyed several aspects of this fanedit. 1> Actual extended edition of Unbreakable, which I agree with the editor as the best MNS movie by far. 2> Blu-Ray source AND AVCHD is a sure winner for quality purposes. 3> Axing of the intro/outro texts.

Well executed and a sure replacement.
