I was extremely disappointed on first watching this in the cinema, a feeling only accentuated when I re-watched it on Disney Plus release. As great as the portrayal of Kang was, there was just too much silliness and I thought this bloated CGI mess could not be redeemed, even by a skilled fan editor- the content just wouldn't be there to create an enjoyable viewing experience. Happy to now say I was wrong. This much more succinct and fast paced version is highly preferably. Much of the silliness and OTT humour has been removed or trimmed. The early scenes have been restructured and we now open with the a focus on Kang, which sets us off on a strong footing. Is it perfect? No, but a minor miracle has been performed with footage available.

Undeniably better. A "go to" version, for me.

A/V QUALITY

Looked great, and while the audio is 2.0, it still sounded pretty good.

VISUAL EDITING

Visual cuts were good, though it was unusual not seeing a, "this is a fanedit" warning up front.

AUDIO EDITING

Several audio cuts were noticed, and the added heartbeat sounds in one of the scenes was distracting (to me), but looking at the change log, there were a lot of cuts that breezed by. I will send some detailed notes to the editor with timestamps, but the list is very short.

NARRATIVE

It's a brisk 75 minutes before the credits roll, but it absolutely works, and the revised opening with Kang is indelible. The only narrative challenge is MODOK who is seen twice(?) in an anonymous way but without any payoff. Not having all of those weirdly composited shots of Darren's face is worth a bit of unfulfilled intrigue, though. I did think the denizens of of the quantum world were perhaps a bit too heavily trimmed. I missed "holes" guy.

ENJOYMENT

It's not a great movie, but it's much better than the original. I wish I could rate this > 10 so my review would reflect that.

I have to begin by saying this edit is absolutely amazing. It took out all the unnecessary fluff and made the film what it should have been in the first place. A good movie. I was immediately drawn into the world of the Quantum Realm, and felt the real heart of the story. The video quality is top notch, the audio was crystal clear. and the rendering is done perfectly. Thanks to all who have contributed to making this, and I am grateful for having the ability to see it. A very well done piece of work.

Watched this the other night and it fixes everything wrong with the original. The focus on Kang is there. Instead of just having to focus on Ant-Man it focuses on the entire team and reminds you how much Ant-Man needs the Wasp. The running time is so perfect and the ending left me so satisfied. Looking forward to more stuff. Thank you.

A really good edit for a really bad movie.

There is some minor issues with the audio editing where some cuts are obvious. But, it does not distract from the overall goal that the editor is trying to achieve.

I loved that the side-characters were toned down a lot, including MODOK and Jentorra were totally removed and it helps the pacing a lot. Also ensures that we do not delve on Scott and Gang for unnecessarily long time as I felt the original movie had weak main characters in terms of chemistry and motivations.

The edit shrinks the runtime by more than 30 minutes is very welcome as well as I liked that the Kang and Janet scenes were moved to the start was welcome as well.

Overall, I think its a good edit that salvages the original without letting making unnecessary changes.
