I was never much of a fan of this movie and had not watched it in years. I decided to DL this fanedit and watch it. I enjoyed this version a lot more than I expected to. Technically, a great edit and fine quality – no issues at all.
After watching this edit, I decided to go DL the original from Netflix to my TiVO HD and watch it. I still had to fast-forward thru much of the original. I found that I was fast-forwarding thru the very parts that the fanedit had removed.
I still don’t care much for the movie – either in it’s original form or this edit – NOT because of Adabisi’s effrots whatsoever. This movie is just a mediocre film and is flawed. I just can’t see how any edit can really improve this movie to the point of me watching it ever again.
I will say, that this edit is immensly more watchable than the original. Well worth the DL and time to watch.
I loved this edit.
I’ve only seen this once before, I believe at the theatre, and forgot how much I love this movie.
It reminds me of Robocop’s social commentary and Network’s “I’m mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore” theme. Hell, the nazi in the basement reminded me of Pulp Fiction, which was released after this movie, if memory serves me correctly.
Editing, audio and video – it’s all top notch.
The police investigation is not missed at all and makes for a great viewing experience.
The only nitpick is the presentation. No chapter menues – Just a static main menu with a Play button.
Thanks for this. This is what fanediting is all about!
