The Complete version of the film fills in some plot holes of the original, and extends a few action sequences, but the new footage is mostly unnecessary backstory for the film's child character Denzel. Fans of the original game will not remember Denzel (as he wasn't in it) and newcomers will struggle to care about someone whose dialogue largely consists of gasping to himself while looking at things.
The English dub is a mixed bag. The performances are serviceable, though I suspect this was due to the translation and lip-sync. There's one particularly bad translation, but thankfully it's only confusing for the one scene it appears in.
The action sequences can be entertaining, but they are often interrupted by boring or hard-to-follow scene changes. Characterization is pretty poor unless you've followed the original game, and even new characters don't get much room to show their stuff.
Overall, it's fun for fans, but can't really be recommended for non-fans expecting a coherent film.
