I actually really liked it! The concept for that video could have gone really cheesy easily but this wasn't cheesy at all, just really damn epic.

Song was pretty awesome I wish they played it instead of El Dorado at their Toronto show.

The video was getting cornier and cornier until Eddie came in and saved the day.

Wait! So that mutant monster thing was supposed to be Eddie? What the f***? That thing doesn't look like Eddie at all. When did Eddie go from being a zombie to what ever the f*** that thing was with the huge fangs and claws. Gazing upon the many Maiden posters in my homestead and every single one of their album covers beholding the almighty Eddie, I simply cannot believe it's the same guy I saw in that video.

You can all call it Eddie if you want, it's not f***ing Eddie.

Other than that load of bullsh**, pretty cool video and a great song. Like it a lot better than El Dorado, way more excited for the new album now if that was even possible.

Song's not bad but neither this nor "El Dorado" has blown my mind yet. The video is better than their other CGI efforts but it's no "Can I Play With Madness?" ;)

The video uses an edited down version of the song, the actual song is twice as long supposedly, I'm hoping the album version is better.

Pretty cool video, but I don't think it portrays the idea of "The Final Frontier" point of view. It just shows a man on a mission to get a detenator then gets thrown out of his starship by Eddie who ends up blowing the planet straight to hell. Plus, I don't think the whole Indiana Jones switcharoo act was needed. But the song was awseome can't wait for the album to come out.

I read an interview with the artist and he dosen't like Eddie(derek riggs style) and first said that it wasn't really eddie and then he's said now that it is Eddy. he is the guy who did the Fear Of The Dark cover. To me it is not Eddy. Pre-ordered the album on vinyl
