As Darth would say, impressive. Quite the distillation of "Spectre," tossing the Mexico opening into the mixer with some later scenes used as a flashback. At least that's how I view it.

Video - 1280 X 538p AVC. Really nice editing here. Cutting is crisp and effectively pushes the story.

Audio - 353 kbps, 2 Channel AAC. No subs (OK, this being a short). Dialogue is understandable, there are no abrupt music transitions. There does not seem to be a sweeping dynamic range, so I don't know if there was compression involved. For a short, again this is a shrewd decision.

Narrative - This functions more as a single Bond mission, with events leading up to it and the aftermath. The story remains coherent, though character motivations are missing as are the villains’.

Enjoyment - Ending is a blunt, though to be honest, this would make an excellent break if the editor ever decided to craft a cliffhanger serial. That said, I did enjoy watching this, and was surprised by the turns and choices made by the editor.

It's a lot better than the original, but unlike the original, this is 17 minutes long, which makes me sad. Would love to see the rest.

A brilliantly compiled story from a let’s just say, messy movie that is Spectre. The editing is great, doesn’t look out of place for the majority. This subplot has been turned into a fantastic and focused story. The music is also fitting and spat on.

Well done, Problem Eliminator. :)

A splendid edit and a great little story extracted from the otherwise muddled Spectre.
