Well no, I definitely didn't say that. It's not crap. It's just, in my opinion, not as good as it could have been, and I doubt it could have been very good regardless. But it is an interesting idea, executed competently if not brilliantly.

Oh great, now I've got "Tommy" stuck in my head.

I meant to only sit down and watch the first 10 minutes to see how the editing was, and I was sucked in for the whole 3 hours. It's not perfect (like ron said, the sand dialog is in there, and also I think the editor could have easily taken out C3P0's origin), but still, it's the most enjoyable time I've had with the prequels. The lame humor is entirely gone. He's turned Amidala into a non-soldier. She never fires a gun or gets in battles. R2 doesn't have any new abilities. Yoda only shows his fighting skills at the end.

Sure, it rushes around a lot, and glosses over a bunch of (boring) stuff, and might not be enjoyed by first timers. But I wouldn't call that a valid complaint. Very few if any are going to watch a Star Wars fan edit before watching the original. This edit was made for people who liked some moments of the prequels, but hated most of it. All the important plot points are hit, (which makes it amazing that the phantom menace portion is only 20 minutes), and I didn't miss anything that was taken out. I really liked the fast pace.

His editing skills are very good, especially for a first time editor. I only noticed two harsh edits through the whole thing.

I'd suggest people give it a try. It's well worth it.

A few comments...

First of all, the prequels as one fils is a brilliant idia for a few reasons. You can completly work around all of the jar jar and young anikan stuff with out it bieng a structure problem. For the most part I love what was done with the ep1 part of the editing, good text for the crawl (if a bit fast and dodgy). I don't mind so much that Jar Jar "just hangs arounds" because in turms of the Star Wars films, a creature CG or otherwise bieng around or even a member of the party is nothing new so edited well enough, it works. But as much as I like the idea of the two jedis going to the ship and then flighting Darth Maul, I have a problem with the background. Like it or not Maul is standing next under a big stone archway, and no amount of clever cutting will fix that. Also I think it would work if you had them on the planet and leave the amadala parts in, it brakes up the Jedi well enough. Beyond that I've only seen up to most of the ep2 stuff and it looks good. In my opinion, some of the "dumb jokes" should be left in, like for example Anikan getting crap from obi wan about taking so long and he rebudding about finding the right speeder. I think some of that stuff works and I don't believe you can, or should, have star wars eithout some amount of slap stick. Plus I think at the very least it brake up the pacing of the effects, and without something to distract, the film is just one long effect. And to quote Lucas ironiclly: "A special effect without a story is a pretty boring thing."

It short I think the idea is great, in practice it works for the most part but could use a bit more left in for pacing and such. And I think it would be fine to let it stretch out as long as three and a half or so hours. My two cents!

Great job, can't wait to see a second go of it if you do so.

I ditto Taolar for the most part. As an edit for existing fans, it works well; some bumps in the road like the Maul/Jedi duel, but the combining of the movies was done so smoothly (to explain away character hair and costume changes, a simple couple of superimposed titles stating the time which has passed could be used). It was fun to watch. Nice job, Blankfist!

I wanted to say thanks to everyone for their input. This was NOT a perfect edit - I agree. It really works best for people who have never seen the new prequels. Thanks again for those of you that took the time to watch it. That's really cool.

Hi- I've been trying to find a copy of this edit. I found the file in the usual place but it has had 4-6 leechs stuck at 11.6%. I've been on it for 2 days now thinking maybe the seed shows about an hour a day but no luck. Does anyone have this edit on thier HD they could re-seed? I found the file on 3-4 different sites and they all go to the same swarm. Thank-you for any help you can offer.

Hey guys, is there anywhere I can legally download this edit?

This sounds like a really interesting edit of the prequels but I can’t find it anywhere
