An incredible job. A great choice of additional scenes, some cuts, and some amazing work on sound and visuals.

I have always loved this film -- but in its theatrical cut incarnation. The various longer versions that floated around e.g. the two TV versions that changed some bits and threw in every bit of additional footage available (plus recycling some shots) did not, in my opinion, add much of value. They hammered the pace, and complicated the already complicated world-building with excessive details. Being as comprehensive as possible is not necessarily the same as being good as possible.

This edit is something else. What it adds matters; what it cuts works; quality is consistent; and indeed, and it does a better job on some key visuals than the official Blu-ray. A huge amount of work has gone into this, and it shows. Some incredibly recovery and rebuilding of visuals, some amazing sound work.

This will definitely be my go-to version.

Oh, and there is some amazing cover art if you want to burn this and put it on your shelf.
