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.

Die Another Day is a very tricky beast to tame as an editor, it's never going to come across as the perfect anniversary movie, but LastSurvivor has managed to make it an otherwise entertaining entry in the Brosnan canon. Characters are smarter, campy indulgences are scaled back, he cuts expertly around the invisi-car. Quality of the edit is top notch. I would like to echo Wilhelm Scream's suggestion of Moneypenny finally getting her man at the end, but hey, that's an idea for future editors perhaps...

I had a grand old time with this LS, "you get the point"

This is sooooo much better than the original! So many stupid moments and lines are gone. The only thing I would change is the ending, as I don't like Jinx, I would trim the VR sequence of Moneypenny and trim it so that it ends before it's revealed that it's a VR sequence, so now Bond would finally end up with the woman who's been working with him for years.

Who could have imagined? The abominable Die Another Day had a fun, entertaining Bond movie hidden behind it!

This edit is a revelation. After removing the stupid humor, the awful CGI, and the reference overload, the result is more than watchable. In this form it's no more the worst Bond film ever, which it used to be for me. I agree with all the choices Last Survivor has made here, including the Q scene, which is about right and nothing seemed missing or abrupt to me, so redoing it doesn't justify a version 2 for my tastes (and if "Saved by the bell" is put back as another reviewer sort-of requested, I'll quit watching LS edits forever ;) The only thing that felt off to me was Jinx's "Bitch!" after stabbing Miranda, which felt edited and incomplete because of the delivery. Everything else was perfectly done. And the audio commentary was, as usual, a more than welcome addition. It's just as entertaining as professionally released ones.

All in all, at last Brosnan's Bond has a non-embarrassing exit from the saga. Highly recommended to all Bond fans.
