The ending had originally featured Honey being attacked by land crabs when Bond rescues her. The crabs moved too slowly to be really menacing and the ending was reshot without the crabs. Still photographs of the earlier ending can be seen on the special edition DVD.

I could not tell if Ryan was male or female from this review at first, does he fancy Bond or Honey? Either is fine by me!

hi, i know this is a ridiculous amount of time too late to reply to this, but i just want to let you know that i have a great many gaps in my bond film knowledge and this has made me want to fill them in. but i had to wait for christmas when i got the bond collection on dvd.

i will be reading your reviews again after i watch each film to see if my first impressions match yours.
