Brief Synopsis:
Prometheus SE cuts out a lot of the unnecessary humor, dialog and scene's, building stronger, smarter characters. Removing many plot holes with the story and just general things that have issues. Such as Fifield getting lost in the structure, running in a straight line away from a rolling space craft. Deleted scene's or certain shots from the deleted footage was re-integrated back into the movie by either using several shots to change certain scene's or by adding a whole new scene to the film. All new material was color corrected, scored, sfx added and leveled to appropriate audio levels.
Intention:
To create a better more intelligent version of the movie, with stronger characters, less humor, less plot holes, and more in the heart of Alien.
Additional Notes:
Also available in full Blu-Ray 3D

Just finished watching the edit.
The technical side of it was certainly very strong. The cuts, the integration of the deleted scenes (save for Vickers/Janek intercutting with Shaw/David), the colour correction, the cleaned up FX were all flawless. The audio was pretty good as well, even if there were some mixing problems from time to time (dialogue mixed in the front channels, the score turned up too loud). All in all, brilliant work.

The only problem was that the movie felt a bit disorganised. I can't quite put my finger on it but I think the film flowed a bit better when I last watched the theatrical version. That said, I remember feeling the same way when I first watched it at the cinema, so perhaps it's just a question of repeated viewings.

Well, this is my first experience of a fan edit, although i had heard of the SW edits in the past. So i stumbled back into this world and this edit really caught my eye, primarily because i love Prometheus. It also interested me as i have read so much about the seemingly wasted potential of the current cut based on a changed script and the extras contained on the bluray etc.

Ok, long story short, i thought this edit was excellent. The narrative was much improved, with the TED sequence adding weight to why Guy Pearce is wearing 'old man' makeup later in the film (never really explained in the original cut). I felt that integration of the deleted scenes added much to the characters, providing the watcher with more information about their past which underlined their motivations and the decisions they were making in the present.

I'm not going to be critical of this release as frankly it was an almost flawless reconstruction of the original film. The quality of the edited soundtrack was occasionally harsh and over bearing and i had to re calibrate my display as the edit was over brightened compared to the original bluray. To be honest i feel guilty about the last 2 points as i'm over zealous on the pursuit of home cinema perfection so its just me being silly no doubt.

Anyway too long a review frankly but i was so totally blown away by the choices made by Agent 9, the quality of his work (which was nigh on flawless) and the improvement he made to a film i already love, that i registered just to provide my review and genuine thanks for his hard work :)

Prometheus is to Alien / Aliens what The Phantom Menace is to the original Star Wars trilogy. Fanedits fixed much of the dire mess that is The Phantom Menace and I was hoping, as I endured Prometheus in the cinema, that they'd do the same for it.

And they have. There several worth watching, and this is very definitely one of them.

There are still problems - big ones - but they're down to the script writers. So the egregious science is still there, from the awful archaeology of the briefing onwards, and many of the cast still do very stupid things. But it's much better than the theatrical version.

The picture quality is great, even on the .mp4 version. There are a couple of audio glitches, but the sound quality also reflects the excellent work done on this.

.. but my favourite fanedit is still the Xenomorph edition, which cuts even more of the crap out.

Finally got to sit down and watch this version of the film.

WOW. Agent 9 my friend, you have impressed me again..
This is a great edit, technically is almost flawless.. the coloring, the audio.. the list goes on.
Fantastically put together Blu-Ray and menu as well. Even has the option of an English Subtitle track, that Agent 9 had to type out himself... Damn! Now that's dedication..

There's a few minor problem's with this movie, with a few audio transitions not being completely perfect, and the music is little bit louder than it should be in the end fight sequence, but after all the work put into this, I'm going to over look those minor things.. There's a lot of work, dedication and passion that shows through here.
And to even try and do all of this again in 3D is impressive. (Not that it's done or I've seen it, but that Agent 9 is planning on releasing in 3D is crazy to me.)

Anyways.. There's not much I can say that hasn't already said before, but if you didn't fully enjoy the original cut of Prometheus.. Check out This Special Edition Cut.... It's awesome..

Though I will say and not to be mean, but If you don't like Prometheus at all, it's not like Agent 9 (or any other editor that does these edits) went out and shot a new film.. He just fixed stuff up and made it stronger as a whole.. the movie itself still has it's flaws, but this is probably the best it will be, don't trash someone's rating for a movie they didn't make, just cause they couldn't make it what you wanted, I truly hate this......

Anyways, I'm done babbling....... Great Edit Agent 9.. Can't wait for the next one..

I really didn't care that much about Prometheus so I needed a fanedit to see it fixed.
I just thought "missed opportunity" and moved on.
Then I saw all these posts from new members asking rules-violating questions and that made me think that this must be really something if it attracted this much attention from people not familiar with the world of fanediting. So I had to see it.

The new opening is so much better and it is now more about the mission and less about Shaw's faith, something I felt was handled in such a cliché way. Not showing the dig at the beginning makes Shaw and Holloway look less like hard core fanatics that just travel to the other side of the universe because "they believe"

That religious "because that is what I choose to believe" dream sequence is now gone.
I think you should have cut more of the religious aspect out "we need a true believer aboard" etc.

I always thought that the briefing scene felt stupid; This scientific expedition cost around a trillion dollars and the people hired don't know what the mission is about before takeoff? It is only when they arrive at their destination that they are finally briefed (btw, taking off the helmet bullshit was the biggest failure in this movie imo. and that is not something that can be fixed with a a fanedit) maybe I'm nitpicking, let's move on.

With the two guys left behind it now doesn't feel like "...and while everyone else was off f***ing each other--"

The added scenes with Vickers and the Captain was nice (although when you cut back to Shaw and David it felt awkward) the conclusions that the Captain comes to later on and what he tells Shaw doesn't feel like taken from thin air anymore. Like the filmmakers needed a scene that
explains this and that to the audience and they just came up with something. This feels more natural.

Agent 9 saved this film as much as saving could be done. It's now more connected with the Alien franchise and I believe that is a good thing. The story is now more fleshed out and feel more whole.

If I could change one thing in this fanedit I would change the fight scene between Shaw and the engineer back to the original version. The idea that she would even stand a chance against this creature is really stretching my disbelief to the breaking point. It is so Hollywood, the final girl taking on the big monster. She wouldn't have stand a chance. And the OC was better in this regard.

This is the work of a true faneditor. The deleted scenes had unfinished effects which Agent 9 finished, he color corrected them, they had 2.0 audio so he remixed a new 5.1 track for them. The edit is in HD and there is even a 3d version. This could have been a dvd5 with all the deleted scenes being 2.0 with nothing done to the unfinished effects in them but this really is the Special Edition. Somewhere Ridley Scott probably gets a phone call from the studio saying that there is no need for a director's cut anymore...
