This edit greatly improves upon the theatrical cut. The trims and additions are done beautifully and masterfully, and I wholeheartedly recommend watching it.
Furthermore, presenting the film in a chronological order works wonderfully, in my opinion. Seeing the team's dynamic evolve through the years is clearer in this edit. However, there was one main issue that made this edit problematic in my eyes: our knowledge of Arishem's plan.
Knowing the plan in advance cheapens the moment(s) where the other Eternals learn about it. Additionally, A first-time watcher would probably find the info-dump challenging. The way the theatrical cut handled it wasn't great either, don't get me wrong, but this edit's solution isn't the optimal. Additionally, using the same visuals twice (in Ajak's vision and in Sersi's), not to mention Thena's visions, was quite tedious for me.
All in all - I highly recommend watching this edit.
