Brief Synopsis:
The Man With The Golden Gun is now taken a little more seriously, which means no silly karate fight outside of the karate school, a shorter boat chase without the annoying kid selling an elephant statue and most importantly, no J.W. Pepper (which unfortunately meant losing the entire car chase).
Intention:
The Man With The Golden Gun should've been way more iconic than it turned out. Apparently there was more filmed of the final duel between these two titans, which a trailer can show, but who knows if we will ever see what it could've and should've been. For now, I wanted to, as always, tighten things up and lose a majority of jokes that just don't land. Also, Alice Cooper's song is way more awesome!
Release Information:
Digital
Cuts and Additions:
-Added Alice Cooper's version of the title song
-Tightened up initial encounter between Ms. Anders and Bond
-Cut Scaramanga basically fondling Ms. Anders with the Golden Gun on his boat
-Cut random goons eyeing up Bond as he leaves the compound because it gives away too quickly that they know he isn't who he says he is
-Cut Bond saying "he must've found me titillating"
-Cut the agent dropping off Bond with his nieces in the car
- Cut the whole karate fight scene with the agent and his nieces. Now, Bond jumps through the window of the karate compound/school and heads for a boat

-Cut all of the kid selling the elephant statue and JW Pepper
-Cut Bond's line "a gun and a bag of peanuts" as Nick Nack holds a gun on him

-Cut henchman fondling Goodnight
-Trim Bond saying he's never killed a midget before
-Cut scene between Bond and Goodnight and talking about the boat being on autopilot since Nick Nack would've tried to kill them mid-sex and not after their first round of sexy time
-Added Alice Cooper's version of the title song to bring the film to a close

This was a film I had trouble with because it's execution was terribly bad. There are scenes where it attempts to take aspects seriously while later it would take another turn into goofiness. This film edit straightens it's seriousness almost like a Connery film which is pleasing, the removal of certain scenes for example involving J.W. Pepper thankfully keeps on track instead of eyeing away from the plot too much, and the replacement of Lulu's theme with Alice Cooper's unused cover fits perfectly. I recommend a watch for fans who give less fingerprints on checking the original film.
