Stripped down and linear without any exaggerated "character" developments. These characters are cookie cut, but useful, tropes and should never have been labored over so much in the original. But in the context of the setting and without the soap operatic flashbacks, the love against odds/rescue dynamic now procures enough emotion for the viewer to engage in the situation without rolling their eyes. Nice job. Most cuts were invisible and where they couldn't be they were nicely integrated with the technology glitches or frantic use of the cam being used which was nice. Good edit overall and improves the film a lot. I am giving high marks for the cohesiveness of a mature edit and improved narrative focus.
