as a boy roger was my favorite bond - he went to space, had a submarine car and would fight a giant with metal teeth. After pierce made goldeneye rogers movies started looking really cheesy and roger looked really old using a stunt double to even throw punches. also all the silly sex puns made roger look like a horny old man. this cut made me enjoy roger so much more! with all the cuts made roger has the look and a cool demeanor - we dont need cheesy little lines after everything he does. also, he doesnt sleep with everyone he meets. Great edit - totally recommend this.

Moore's tenure as Bond unfortunately went out with a whimper when he decided to stick around for one film too many. This edit does a wonderful job of salvaging the great stuff within it by eliminating the worst bits. It's by no means a great Bond film, but it's now much more watchable. Well done!

This is a really good edit of A View To A Kill. Watching it I did feel resigned to the fact that I'll never like the movie, no matter what is cut out - for me it's easily Moore's worst 007 film, it's also the first 007 film that I consider a legitimately bad movie. This edit removed nearly everything I would have chosen to remove and it's clearly far superior to the original version. It flows smoothly, nothing that is cut is missed. But I still have to say that it's not a very good movie. This isn't a knock on Lapis at all, I honestly don't think he could have done much more with what he had.

The editing is pretty much flawless, the only time I noticed the audio is with the removal of the Beach Boys song. I feel like using more of the AVTAK score - which is iconic and by far the best thing about the movie - would have been preferable. Somehow the new music in that section doesn't feel like it belongs. alongside the regular score during that scene.

Beyond that the audio and video editing was superb, and the choices made were equally superb. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to find a version of this movie that they can sit through. Don't expect it to become a great Bond movie, but it is now watchable. It's become my go-to version of the movie.

I think this was Roger More worst Bond movie. He look old. The Bond girl was pretty bad. she was not acting professionaliy. The story was sort of weak & some comedy was silly. The earthquake story remind me the Movie Superman. I like the ski music The Beach Boys you took out & you put Bond music. The fight at the basement with Bond & Sir Godfrey was not good, that's good you took it out. The part with bond horse racing, you edit was also good. Sir Godfrey seeing May Day at the front gate, then removing her was great idea. The S.F. cops was too silly, that's good you edit it out. Taking off peeping Tom Q at the shower scene, was nice. Also Stacey yelling James many times was so annoying, Im glad you took that out. You fix the scene Bond & May Day in bed. The audio & Visual was good. The movie is better. I Enjoy it a lot. Thanks.
