The edit was great for the most part. I watched the version with the bus scene removed, and I gotta say its a welcome change. I didn't like the bus scene very much when I saw it in the theater. I thought it went on too long and really wasn't necessary. The re-integration of the list deleted scene was pretty much flawless and I felt it probably should have been in the original cut. The more minor edits were also nice and I am grateful for the removal of the sorta cringey flirting between Aunt May and Happy. The only thing in the edit I didn't care for much was the addition of the Tony Stark flashback. I didn't think it was edited in seamlessly enough.

Thanks for the kind words! I’m curious, what about the flashback felt jarring? I feel it works well but I’m interested in your thoughts.

Upon preparing for No Way Home, I decided to give Masirimso's edit of Far From Home a shot, since I always remember not enjoying the original cut of this when it came out on theaters.

For transparency, I watched the version with the bus scene still included, just edited down to as bare bones and plot neccesary as possible, there is another version of the edit that removes it all together. The edit was done as best as one could, least to keep it in the plot with minimal time on the scene and keep it from being a snore fest.

Aside from it, the removal of the fling sub-plot, the reintegration of deleted scenes and removal of some scenes that amounted to not much this is the best way to go about seeing Far From Home

This was such a solid edit. I've seen the movie enough time to know what scenes were removed/added but a casual watcher wouldn't notice them being gone. I'm glad the "To Do List" was added since it should have been in the theatrical cut from the get go. The PTSD added a nice element to what Peter had been mentally going through since Endgame. He's a 16 year old kid who fought a war against aliens...who wouldn't want a break from superheroing.

I watched the version without the bus/drone scene and frankly it wasn't missed and now feels like it slows the movie down for a few extra minutes of comedy. Also removing the scenes with Happy & co. escaping the drones was a nice touch. Letting the final act focus on Spidey & Mysterio felt better paced. The editing was done perfectly and felt like one fluid scene.

My only complaints, which a very minor are the missing Happy/May romance. I know it's cheesy and does nothing for the plot but I still enjoyed the interaction between the two of them and awkwardness from Peter. The other issue was the audio for "Left Hand Free" was a tad to high during the suit assembly scene which kind of drowned out Peter.

All in all kudos to Masirimso17 for doing an amazing job and letting me watch it. This will be my go to Far From Home movie from now on!

MCU’s Spider-Man is not my cup of tea for a great number of reasons, so I was excited to see this, especially since Masirimso17’s Responsibility Edition of Homecoming was a much better viewing experience for me than the official release.

Technically, this edit is almost perfectly done. Having no vivid memory of the original film, I could not tell where it was tampered except for the part where Back in Black was replaced with a new song and the sound was a notch too loud. Removing the Happy-May romance and the repetitive jokes like the “Peter-Tingle” or Pete hit by the bell in Venice was a wise choice, and even though I had my reservations about the complete removal of the bus scene (that’s the version I watched) in terms of narration, I must say it works like a charm. One thing I particularly enjoyed was the editor’s addition of Pete’s PTSD due to the Snap. Sure, it doesn’t go deeper than Tony’s PTSD in Iron Man 3 –and that was superficial enough-, but it’s still nice to see that a life-changing event like that had some kind of impact on him, instead of just having him carelessly flirt like any other schoolboy.

On a more personal note, however, I cannot say in all honesty that even this edit saves the film for me. I cannot stand the current trend of caricatures in superhero films and Far From Home is unfortunately full of them; the students, the teachers, even Beck’s team, speak and act throughout the whole film as if they’re a part of a travesty. Beck’s team, for example, is supposed to consist of former employees of Stark Industries, they’re supposed to be at the very least somewhat intelligent, but for the most part they act like Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou (e.g. William playing with his phone while on rehearsal or Janice and that cape). This is by no means a reproach to Masirimso’s hard work. I understand very well that removing all those without compromising the narrative would be impossible, so I guess the film is pretty much unsalvageable for me.

All in all, it all comes down to your personal taste. If you enjoyed the original, this fan-edited, improved version is for you. If not, well, do not expect an entirely different viewing experience.
