Bah, people who rank this below a 10 have no class. This was almost certainly the best Mike and Kevin outing yet, in terms of the overall experience of watching the movie.

9...I really think it was one of the funniest ones I've listened to recently. 

True, I am high on painkillers now, but it was funny nonetheless.

I said an 8.  Not my favorite but a really funny effort and a good movie to boot.  Definately one of the most watchable ones.

9/10.

I was hovering between 8 and 9, but rounded up because the work on the opening credits was one of the best extended riff sequences ever, either in Rifftrax or its lineal ancestors in the art of movie mocking.  Of course, YMMV, but it just kept hitting the mark for me.  I can listen to that sequence straight, without the movie, and still enjoy it immensely.

Some truly brilliant work in this one. I knocked it down a few points but it's not really the fault of Mike and Kevin. The movie was a long watch, and while there is nothing wrong with that, there was no way they could keep things at such a high level the whole way through. There were stretches where the movie didn't offer enough fuel for great riffing and the laugh factor lulled a bit. Of course,  when they were in the zone it was downright classic stuff.

A solid 8.  Some great moments (in addition to a great movie) made this well worth the download.

I hated this movie when it came out in theaters.  And at first I was groaning that I would have to sit through it again, but then I remembered that Mike & Kevin made Battle Field Earth enjoyable.  I guess part of why I didn't like the movie is because I liked Die Another Day <waits for stones to be thrown>

I give it a 1. A couple of funny moments, but overall a weak effort. Since I really liked this movie, I probably should have known better than to get the RiffTrax for it. Too much bitching on Mike and Kevin's part for what I felt was a really great movie.

A fantastic Bond movie and a pretty damned good riff. :D

I give it a 9 myself, although I blame the friend I watched it with for that. He's one of those strange people who are horrified of robots and think that riffing might interrupt an otherwise perfectly entertaining movie. He just got the DVD today and we had both already seen it, so I said the only way I'd watch it is if he let me get the riiftrax and try to match it up. Disembaudio in the intro freaked him out but I explained his function, he actually saved us when this friend of mine got angry a minute in and said, "I thought you said they wouldn't interupt the movie!"  ::)

Anyway, when he wasn't blocking it out he got a few chuckles so I think it was $3 well spent. I just might have convinced this guy that Mike Nelson is not the anti-christ.

This Riff actually made Casino Royale watchable again! It was probably the worst Bond movie ever, well, ok, to be fair Moonraker was pretty awful but a least it had a bit more action then this turkey. Also, Daniel Craig looks more like a Bond villain than an actual Bond!

Hola all,  yes it's taken me a while to get to Casino Royale (much like in the movie  :P)  , but having this follow Star Wars 2 was nearly day and night experience.

Please don't get me wrong I enjoyed the riffing of Star Wars 2, but the movie itself is so longgggg (pacing issues) and boringggggg that getting to watch an exciting decent movie along with Mike and Kevin made me realize how great this one actually was.

The movie wasn't painful, the riffing was top level ( I am still singing the Chris Deberg part this morning)



I had this as a 9.59 on my own personal review list,  but with rounding I scored it a 10 on the poll!!!
