I really enjoyed this edit. The K D Lang song over the opening credits is brilliant, a huge improvement. All the other cuts work well and result in a better pacing over all.

Tomorrow Never Lies is what the original should be. Lean, great pace, not forced humour, it's all there!
Congratulations on another great edit to Lapis Molari (with the added bonus of having english subtitles, much appreciated)

So, here's the thing:

I am not a big fan of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond films. He, himself, was a solid Bond (a sort-of expansion and mature take on Roger Moore"s Bond), but his films, to me, were downright terrible; they just didn't FEEL like spy-espionage films. Say what you will on the Roger Moore films, but at least they FELT like spy-espionage films. So, why check out this fanedit? Because despite what I said on the Pierce Brosnan films, GOLDENEYE is the only exception and, quite frankly, is my second favorite James Bond film; and TOMORROW NEVER DIES is the sort-of bridge between the awesomeness of GOLDENEYE and the shittiness of the rest of the Brosnan films. Maybe, just maybe, this fanedit can diminish the shittiness of the film while maybe simultaneously elevating the awesome elements within.

Does it succeed at that? Unfortunately, not really.

As a fanedit, this is excellent. The corniness is cut down a bit, the fat is trimmed thus improving the pacing of the film, and the overall quality of the film is improved purely on it's efficient delivery of the story and action. If you loved the original version of this film, this fanedit improves upon it, plain and simple. But for someone like myself who didn't really enjoy the original film, this edit didn't really change that opinion. But please understand that that should not reflect on the faneditor, faneditors must work with what they have. In that sense. this edit is excellent and highly recommended. But if you hated the original version of this film, just move on.

Let me close on quite possibly the single best thing of this edit: switching the song, "Tomorrow Never Dies" with "Surrender;" this was an absolute MUST. "Surrender," to me, is the ULTIMATE James Bond song. To move it to the end credits was an absolute SIN! Thank you SO MUCH for changing that, lapis molari!

Tomorrow Never Dies is a flawed but underrated Bond movie. I liked quite a lot of it in the original version, but there's definitely some elements that always bugged me during viewings. Lapis Molari did a pretty great job of cutting out a lot of cheesy and unnecessary dialogue, tightening up TND and making Bond a bit more ruthless. I'm not a fan of the KD Lang song, however, as I think the Sheryl Crow theme is very classic Bond. But other than that the edit improves on the original in most every way.

For my personal taste this is not the version I would prefer. I like Terry Hatcher (She is MY favourite Lois Lane) and I liked her character and story line with Bond in this so the changes to that did not apeal to me. Also Dr Kaufman was my favourite scene and character so I did not like to see his oddness toned down. No fault in the editing just a personal preference.

The editing to the action sequences was excelent and I was not able to tell whre the cuts were. The final battle aboard the stealth boat was much improve as I felt the original dragged on too long.

Editing was mostly very good except for one or two moments of editing such as when Bond first talks to Paris seemed awkward. I could tell something was cut. And for Audio in the same scene a line of dialogue did not match her lip movement.

This is a strong edit if you are lookin for a faster paced version.
