As a Bond fan the original movie was a sad moment in my life, form Madonna to surfing icebergs and the invisible car, everything was a mess, for goodness sake there are fan-editors in the world, this edit has most certainly replaced my original copy of the movie, it takes a terrible movie (in my opinion) and makes it a deserving Bond movie, congratulations Last Survivor this is an awesome edit, definitely recommend you to watch this version of it.

i hated this bond it was a disaster, this is the worse bond movie EVER.
i never blamed Bronson he did the best with what he had you cant polish a turd.

but this edit saves this movie in every aspect bad jokes, horrible guest appearances and the worse title song ever.

Editing:
perfect could not notice any.

PQ:
DVD quality, could not ask for better

Audio:
perfect

Verdict:
the best this movie will ever be.
this will be the version of the movie i will always go to and the version i would show my mates.

thank you last survivor for fixing this mess of a movie.

I was so excited to watch this, and Last survivor didn't let me down.
The tweaks were amazingly done and make this a true bond movie, they don't prevent the flow of the story at all, in fact if Last Survivor hadn't teased us with his trailer which essentially danced around the majority of elements that were bad with the original film, i probably would have only noticed the invisible car and intro song were missing.
as all reviews have to 'critique' in one way or another my only gripe was the surfing intro, i know its required to show bond getting the c4, but to me some kind of establishing shot of the plane landing before bond switches places with the diamond seller would have been more than ample.
also jinx's use of the word 'bitch' on the plane seems out of place, i might have omitted it to prevent it from sounding like an audio hard cut.

Fantastic job Last Survivor!, This is definitely my 'go to' version of the film.

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.
