Update: Added one star back after realizing I was incorrect (and sounding somewhat like a prick).
Ok, please take this review with a grain of salt. I ABSOLUTELY loved this edit, but with a few critiques concerning the new foley audio.
I agree that replacing the gun shots was a great idea (and much needed), but simply put, they are way too loud in the overall mix. They would also have benefited from ambient effects added to the them to keep the sound in the context of where the action is taking place (reverb in car parks, compression in apartments, etc.)
Now the positives. The video clarity was stunning and the new FX work is jaw dropping! It totally added a new depth to the film! This is a BRILLIANT edit to one of my all time favorite films. I know you put a TON of time and labor into this. For that, I thank you sincerely.

One word to describe this edit: fantastic. Especially the police station scene, the combination of the new colourgrade, blood vfx, and the new sound effects made for an experience perhaps even better than the original film. Everything this edit sets out to do is done amazingly. Would highly recommend.

Perfect. krausfadr called this the "enhanced" edition, but as far as I'm concerned, "definitive" would also have been a great choice.

A/V quality is beyond reproach, and the new VFX are seamlessly integrated. One of the shots felt a touch to "modern" for my tastes on a first view, but became more natural on a revisit. The integration of these new shots is so good that they *almost* feel like a part of the original. If you thought this was Cameron doing a George Lucas, you'd be forgiven. And you'd probably thank Cameron for the effort.

My only challenge with the movie is some aggressive L/R panning for many of the sound effects, but that's just how it is in the source material, so I take nothing away from the scoring on that category.

The improved grading, selective darkening and cropping to better mask some of the dated practical effects, the improved SFX, and other fixes along the way genuinely give the impression of a studio-level overhaul.

Recommended.

I didn't think I would need this edit, but having seen it I realize how important it is. Just like Adywans Revisited edits (Star Wars) enhances and elevates the beloved movies without obstucting any of the original storytelling, Krausfadr makes the same magic with The Terminator.

The changes are subtle, you might even miss them if you're not aware. And thats the beauty. Instead of overdoing lots of edits or FX, here you are served a movie that removes the distraction of old effects and "corrects" for to the 21st century.

My favourite changes:
+ The more fluid moving Terminator in the ending, without the jerky stop-motion-effect.
+ New added future LA scenes.
+ Audio correction and more beefy shot sounds.

This will be my to-go version.

I really like the changes that krausfadr has made. The updated VFX work very well and do not compromise James Cameron's original vision. In addition to the updated effects, the new sounds and color grade are great. This will be my preferred version for any rewatches in the future.
