Brief Synopsis:
For starters, kidjupiter92 and I are going to hope to collaborate to a unified continuity canon with no sentinels, yet no time travel and we hope we can incorporate The Wolverine (Kuzuri) and the original trilogy in with the new movies without much confusion. So, this will be the official first installment of this new canon.

With that out of the way, let's get started. Among many changes, this is focused on Erik. So, we only meet a character Erik meets them or is connected to someone Erik knows like Moira is connected to Shaw and in turn Erik. Darwin's death and Angel's switch (it seems she was always with Shaw) will be cut.
Intention:
Focus more on Erik and make it his story/origin and lessen Mystique, Beast, and Charles; while making it fit into a new X-Men universe.

I really liked the theatrical release of First Class, but felt it ought to have been named "Magneto Begins". Theryaney's edit promised to trim the superfluous and redundant bits and turn it into an actual origin story. Sadly, I believe it fails in that.
As the-scribbling-man wrote, there are pacing issues throughout the film. The relationships between Moira, Raven, and Xavier are rushed and underdeveloped because too much has been cut. This, in turn, severely cripples the film, as certain scenes become jarring and almost incomprehensible. For example, cutting Xavier's recruitment to the CIA makes it difficult to understand the scene where he first meets Magneto. Additionally, moving Mystique and Xavier's first encounter to the end of the film takes away the basis for their relationship (and the transition was not done well - there's a noticeable drop in quality).
As a few others reviewers noted, the subtitles file is incomplete and some lines of dialogue are missing.
I really hope these issues are resolved, because this edit is very promising.

This edit is just fantastic I have no complaints about it.
I highly recommend watching this edit.
The pacing is really good.
Pretty much everything that I didn't like In first class is gone.
I really like the darker beginning of the movie.
I am looking forward to this new X-Men universe.
Hope to see a sequel in the nearby future.
The subtitles were also really good.
If the editor needs any help with the X-Men projects I am happy to help.

A very tight edit which does a lot to fix the things that dragged First Class down. The X-Men film series seems to be plagued by underdeveloped and ultimately pointless supporting characters who just happen to have a name from X-Men comics. This trimmed this as best it could, though there are still limitations to how much of that can be done. Ultimately, putting the narrative focus on Magneto was a great idea as his was always the most compelling story in the film (a holdover from when this was to be X-Men Origins: Magneto, perhaps?).
I rated enjoyment as a 9 only because there is an issue with the subtitles. They don't quite work exactly as they should and in a movie with so much non-English dialogue that does hurt enjoyment.
