Interestingly, I've heard that if Diamonds Are Forever still had Lazenby, it would have had a early flashback scene of Tracy's death and thus become the first 007 revenge film. QOS had a second opportunity but again missed it but LastSurvivor's fan edit succeeds on doing this. The flashback scene compiled from Casino Royale as the pre-title opening and Vesper's theme occuring in the chorus pursuit scene effectively provides the lingering effects of Bond's loss. The opening title song while not bad but I would have prefer Eva Almer's "Forever" which was a rejected theme song for the film but hey, at least the gun barrel was placed correctly. The scenes in slow motion help give in the effect's of Bond looking for his solace which was a good idea to introduce to lessen the continuous action scenes that are terribly edited. I would love to see a blu-ray rip remake of this edit with new changes and I definitely give this a watch.
