Overall I thought the flow was smoother, I didn't really miss much of what you cut, and I think you did the absolute best you could with what you had. You took the movie from a "6/10 with some sick weapons and a boring story" to a "7.5/10 with some sick weapons and pretty interesting story."

I honestly wonder if more can be cut, but I'm just not sure what.

Also I saw other reviews talk about framerate. I watched it on VLC on my phone so maybe that affected things but I honestly didn't notice anything.

The few things I wanted to call out:
- The fact that pulling the data will kill him was only mentioned once in the movie but when informed Max still says "I know." Maybe include one extra line about the program killing him?

- Minimizing Josie Foster's presence was a great move. I didn't care for her accent throughout, and the "corruption" thing? Who cares? Wouldn't Elysium just think "oh yeah, ok, she sent a team to retrieve the information that could destroy my entire life? That's cool, good job."

Overall I appreciate the edit and give it a solid 8.5/10
