Moonraker is proof that sometimes too much of good thing is just.... well, too much.

In essence, Moonraker is a remake of extremely successful THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, just made even bigger....
Move the plot from the Ocean to Space, add more gadgets, more humor, more Bond Babes, more winking at the camera... and oh yeah, more Jaws... and you have a movie that went too far for most audiences to follow.

But MusicEd's fan edit corrects many of these missteps, and brings the over the top tone back down to Earth. Most of the cuts worked for me and the audio work is fairly impressive though I did not agree with every choice. For me the greatest achievement of this edit is Jaws is restored to being a menacing figure instead of comedic fodder, and I applaud Ed for this -- Bravo!

If you are a fan of the Roger Moore Bond era, I think this is a must see adventure, as this fan edit could easily be titled MOONRAKER REDEEMED!

Thanks for the fun Ed!

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 really liked this edit, this edit showed just how much better this movie could be.
i loved the new scoring of the action scenes and i like how this cut out all the silly dialog and one liners
this movie is now quite a good movie instead of the silly rushed mess it used to be.

i highly recomed this edit and look forward to seeing more from musiced921,
this is now my go to version
