I enjoyed the original, despite all the goofyness and bad CGI, but this edit is way better in everyway, more focused, leaner, less silly humour, but remaining out of this world, like the character is supose to be.
Only wish it was in HD...

A belated review from moi, but what can I say?

I Loved Bronson as bond, but the material he was given deteriorated with each movie as the producers lost their way in the franchise, increasingly moving to lowest common denominator decisions and making the awful transition away from practical stunts to digital, a decade too soon.

Much of that visual drivel has now THANKFULLY been excised, as have other egregious element to really polish up this entry, mercifully including the removal of "your mamma"...dear lord, what is wrong with the writers.

Had this movie been played as stright as it is here, Jinx just might have got her own spin-off franchise, but not in its original state. Sufficient quips are retained with the most cringeworthy finally hitting the cutting room floor.

The removal of the digital surf boarding is seamless, and I for one will never watch the theatrical version (which I own in 3 incarnations due to multiple box sets) again.

This now sits on the shelf, burnt to disc with about 15 other Bond Fan edits and I'm sure that in the not too distant future I will have yet abnother box set...OF FAN EDITS, consigning the theatrical versions to the trash (except Goldfinger and From Russia with Love).

Thank you for redeeming this movie. I await an HD upgrade keenly.

What a great improvement! The editor managed to turn one of the worst 007 ever into a very good one. The invisible car, the bad cgi, the Madonna Song and all what makes the viewing cringy, all gone. We are left with an entertaining and enjoyable movie. Well Done !

Never saw the original fully through (clips are enough to make me cringe), this edit is actually enjoyable and allows Pierce Brosnan to bow out of the series gracefully.

Well-deserved FOTM win, don't suppose there are any plans for an HD version?

Removing the invisible car, the tsunami surfing and sexual innuendos with Jinx & others made more sense. The opening music choice was a much better. Great job on the DVD art cover and your audio commentary. Overall I truly liked your version much more than the original. Great job!

Congratulations on winning an award for your editing of this movie. I am looking forward to your next Bond movie FanEdit.

Thank you,
Mike
