>>64477031 Not really, it's just a shorter version of the film. All the prequel edits I've seen, none have been able to "fix" the films, just make them shorter. They've just not got the sort of problems that a good edit can solve.
In fact, it's smart to have a silly space adventure start the saga, because you get a real sense of things going dark later on. If you don't have that, Anakin's fall isn't a big deal or even much different if things just start grim and dark.
>>64477031 The Phantom Edit really isn't worth watching. It boils down to two major flaws: they cut out important stuff, while at the same time keeping in a lot of bad stuff.
First, they cut too much important stuff, to the point where this films relies on you having seen the prequels. It doesn't work at all as a standalone film. Biggest example of this is Dooku: he's still in the film, and he's still one of the big bad guys, but they cut the heroes confronting him and defeating him. It does a "years later" thing and then someone (I think Palpatine) mentions him being dead, and all that's left is Grievous (who we never meet).
Then, it keeps in a lot of dumb shit. Jar Jar still appears and has lines even though they could easily have cut him. The bounty hunter chase scene is virtually uncut, and still includes "this weapon is your life," "wanna buy some deathsticks," the crazy cartoon falling, and more.
I like that they start with the Maul fight, but they start at the wrong point. It should start with them invading the palace, and Maul confronts them and pulls out his lightsaber and lights it up, then reveals it's a double lightsaber.
The romance in this one is even more poorly done. It pulls a lot of the setup, and then includes them kissing way too early on. They should have cut that first kiss, and had their first kiss be the arena one.
Ultimately, it's a cool idea with good intentions, but it's really poorly executed and fails to be a worthwhile edit. It kind of makes me want to edit these films, because I know I could make a better Phantom Edit.
