Synopsis:
I made this edit a couple years ago, at the same time that I made my Terminator 3 edit. I didn't release it because it was a somewhat minor edit that I just made for myself. But recently, on the forums here, on Reddit and in my direct messages, I have seen a few people looking for good edits of Salvation. So I decided I might as well release mine.
Intention:
I actually like Terminator Salvation. I don't love it, it certainly has it's issues, but I like it enough.
The things I don't like about it are...
The opening scene in the prison. It ruins the reveal later.
Skynet knowing about Kyle Reese. Why wouldn't they just kill him instead of using him to get to Connor?
This edit fixes both of these issues by removing the opening flashback, references to the flashback at Skynet later in the movie, and removing every instance of Skynet knowing Kyle Reese.
Release Information:
Digital
Cuts and Additions:
I used the Director's cut as the base, which is 1:57:40, my edit is 1:53:04.

Detailed changes...
1:55 Opening scene in the prison removed
14:57 Mention of Reese removed
30:37 Drone identifying Reese removed
56:29 When the landmine blows up Marcus, there are flashbacks to the opening prison scene, these are removed
1:01:23 Identifying Reese removed
1:23:55 - 1:24:05 Multiple references to the prison scene, Marcus donating his body, Helena Bonham Carter's character, talk of Kyle Reece, all removed.

Certainly improved. Salvation is a pretty solid film to begin with but I would pick this cut over the original. I didn't like the original opening and it took away from the film right from the start. This edit is more about pacing the movie at a better rate and does that exceptionally well. Very much recommend.

I always liked the original, but this edit is definitely better. The pacing is significantly improved, and many of the inconsistencies are dealt with. I definitely recommend you check it out. The removal of the plot twist alone makes this movie that much better, as the reveal is now unexpected.
