Fantastic edit--this is what a James Bond edit should be. Concise, to the point and serious enough to be genuinely believable. Really great work Ed, replaces my copy of Moonraker

This is a great edit: it removes some of the cheesiest parts of the movie, while keeping the pacing consistent. Also, there's still an overall Roger Moore - vibe to this movie. Overall the movie is more bearable to watch without severe editing.

Dvd is nicely, got a sweet menu and everything. Quality is as expected for a DVD5.

I really loved how Jaws was way more menacing and how the love interest was omitted completely. Excellently excecuted.

Personal recommendation: put the dvd in a sleeve and put it in the same case as the original movie. This is the version you must watch

Very well done, and nicely edited. Made the film more serious and less like a spoof. Enjoyed it !

A very enjoyable, successful effort to give some dignity to what used to be the silliest, most problematic 007 film (before DAD). The edits were well chosen, giving the film a much smoother narrative flow and making it easier to enjoy what is still one of the most beautifully filmed Bond entries. I always liked Barry's strangely languid score so the music changes weren't essential, but they're pulled off here nicely. Definitely recommended.

I liked this a lot; MusicEd921 has done a really good job putting this together and removing some of the more frustrating elements of the movie;
A few notes
1. I've actually had this for an age and kept forgetting to watch it; glad I finally got round to it; definitely worth it
2. I have 2 minor quibbles; Firstly the editing of Corinne's death; that's one fo the darkest scenes in the movie and is beautifully scored by Barry; I would have liked to have seen that stay
Secondly; I love the editing of the boat chase and don't mind the removal of the 007 theme, but would have liked another Barry piece in it's place, as good as Arnolds work on TND is, the style just doesn't fit as well as a Barry piece would've..

These are minor quibbles over what was an excellent edit;
I should also add, I love Moonraker, it's actually one of my fave Bond pics, but I absolutely think that it suffers from the overuse of humor/silliness that damaged a number of Moore's Bond pics (and Diamonds Are Forever as well)

Good work MusicEd921!!
