I'm not against movies being long or slow burners, but Revenant does benefit from a shorter runtime since it is a pretty straightforward and simple story at its core.

The editing is seamless, I could barely tell what was missing, but I could feel the benefits of a quicker pace and tighter narrative.

Very nicely done, this edit streamlines the story to its essentials, keeping the movie within a more standard runtime. The editing made the lost material unnoticeable; having seen the original release a couple times upon its release, I didn't find any holes or problems with this edit, though it has cut over 30 minutes from the film.

Being more direct and brief, I do find this a more enjoyable version, and recommend it over the original release.

This edit was exactly what I was looking for, A more focused narrative that focused on the main story. The editing was excellent, Someone who had never seen this movie wouldn’t know anything was changed.

The only downside is the quality of the video and especially the audio is pretty bad. A beautiful movie like this deserves a high quality version!

Bloody Brilliant! Spence has edited a much more tighter and better version of the movie. The removal of the various flashbacks and the chief searching for his daughter subplot was seamlessly removed that after I finished watching this edit I had to go back to see what was actually cut from the movie since I last watched it on DVD. One change I did realise was cut and was the gory horse scene which worked surprising well left out. I also really love the repurposing of the flashbacks scene moved to the healing scene, it felt so much more natural. Overall a much more fantastic, tighter, more focused edit that makes the movie feel less pretentious and keeps the momentum and interest all the way through the movie.
