I think Ivan missed the ball on his re-edit. This will definitely not be my “Go To” edit and these are the reasons why.

  • Let’s start with Akbar. Everyone was excited when Ackbar was back. However, after hearing the voice actor and dialogue it’s terrible. Ivan really should have had someone proof read the dialogue. In Ackbars speech after Leia gets sucked out to space he should say “a spy among us” not “between us” and Ackbar refers to Leia as Princess Leia which should be General Organa or Leia Organa. It just comes across as amateurish and sloppy.

  • The addition of Battlefront 2 gameplay looks awful and takes you out of the immersion of the movie. This needs to be removed.

  • In the the training montage there is scene of Luke and Rey training in the rain and it’s in slow motion and just looks off from the rest of the film and it’s quite jarring. This scene needs to be removed.

  • The third lesson deleted scene in the village is stuttering and dropping frame making it hard to watch. How is this deleted scene such poor quality with other edits on this site incorporating this scene flawlessly.

  • The Canto Bight scene is better that it is has been reduced in length. But why are the Faithers being shown as they dont add anything to the story. Remove the scene where Finn and Rose go out to the balcony and watch the Faithers it’s not necessary.

  • The footage of Kylo Ren in Luke’s flashback scene on the Millennium Falcon looks off because its low quality footage and the rest of the movie is in HD. This scene needs to be removed. And when did Kylo get a chance to ever enter the Millennium Falcon. The scene makes no sense.

  • Rose is a annoying character. But Ivan shouldn’t just kill her off in the movie as she is going to be in Episode 9. There needs to be consistency otherwise it won’t flow once Episode 9 is released. Same with keeping Luke alive at the end of movie. If he is a force ghost in Episode 9 there will be a consistency issue.

After over a years worth of work this is a very disappointing outcome from Ivan. He has just added too much extra content and it comes across as a clunky re-edit. Less is more in most edits. Also, his own personal dislike for the film and character were edited poorly IMHO eg killing off Rose and keeping Luke alive.
