2001: A Space Odyssey - The Abridged Cut:

Been a while since I've seen the original, but this was very well done. Most of what I remember of the film is there, only shorter. I noticed one audio transition near the beginning that seemed a bit iffy, but visually my only complaint is the fade transitions. These may have been in the original, I'm not sure, but a couple felt out of place to me.

Quality was as good as you'd expect from a dvd. The film in general looks fantastic for its age.

The narrative is kept well intact, despite having an hour shaved off. Although, it does feel a little odd having such an epic film fly by so fast.

Overall, a very impressive edit and much enjoyed. It doesn't replace the original, but nor do I think that was the editors intention. This evening I wanted to stick something short on - whoever would of thought I'd watch 2001?
