The fan editor promised "to give Pierce Brosnan the Bond swansong he deserved." And has delivered, I despised the original, which put me off the Bondverse for a decade. It was lazy, overstuffed and stupid. Even the greatest of fan editors cannot make this a great film. There are too many problems in it, ranging from implausible technologies, to unclear motivations to silly sets like the greenhouse/ sauna thing in the middle of the ice. But it is now a good film, which you can and will enjoy. This is a pretty amazing fan edit. Great job.
This one was always the hardest of the Brosnan entries for me to get through, but this edit makes it a hell of a lot easier! Great work with removing the ridiculous invisible car, I forgot about that until I saw zarius' review. Icarus has replaced the original for me in the series. Hats off to LS for another fantastic edit.
I am no expert at the technical stuff so I will leave that to others. The original movie was, to say the least, a bit silly. This edit does the best to resolve this and makes the film enjoyable allowing the viewer to concentrate on the action and not the over-the-top CGI. It didn't feel like there were any obvious cuts or stuff missing which is amazing considering how much has been changed.
Fantastic, this will be my preferred version from now on
While Die Another Day is infamously the worst and sadly, Bronsan's last Bond film, I had no plans to ever re-watch this film from my first viewing ever again. Surprisingly, LastSurvivor's fan edit is one of the best accomplishes of recompiling the worst into a decent Bond film. It goes on par with Tomorrow Never Dies. I'll consider this one of my personal favorite fan edits of any Bond film.
It's been a while since I last watched this. I've always wanted to like the Brosnan Bonds, but they fell too far into the Moore camp style than the earlier Connery or latest Craig style. I can take some camp, but it's easy to over do it. I've also hated the cheesy over-the-top CGI sequences.
Last Survivor fixed this movie for me! It was a great watch and all the parts that bugged me are expertly removed. What is left is a fast-moving, action-packed Bond flick. Yes, there are some quips and a touch of camp, but it's just enough. Even remembering some of the major parts removed, it was seamless and nothing seemed abrupt or obviously missing. This is now my preferred version of the film to watch.
