Plenty entertaining, but consistent with most of Brosnan's Bonds, a few misguided decisions keep it from being a classic.

By honoring the Bond iconography of girls, guns and cars, Tamahori and the screenwriters are able to do something new with Bond: They dare to suggest that Bond is not only human, but also fallible.

It's the same old Bond.

Die Another Day faithfully hews to the James Bond formula, giving us all the elements and allowing the '60s formula to not only live, but prosper, into the the new millennium.

Tamahori senses what Bond fans have been missing. He and Brosnan deliver it with style, both deserving to try another day.

Adding to the grimness: The title song is from Madonna, a dreary bit of lightweight electro-pop that goes on and on to little effect.

Strange, is it not, how the regular bombardment of thrills can have quite the opposite effect of the one intended.

In a year when Austin Powers has scoffed at 007 as a joke and xXx has scoffed at him as an anachronism, Die Another Day is a fluffed opportunity to assert that nobody does it better.

A vigorous 20th installment that is as strong on action as it is weak on the interpersonal stuff.

James Bond gets bad news in Die Another Day: They've rescinded his license to kill. The news is worse for us. They've given him license to bore.

By the end of Die Another Day, the character's potential to wind up beaten and broken has vanished amid the pixels and laser beams.

Perhaps it's time to say goodbye to Mr. Bond.

Pierce Brosnan is the best Bond since Sean Connery -- and this is the best Bond movie since Connery's run.

While the franchise's twentieth entry... is certainly not vintage Bond, it does come equipped with the requisite supply of furious action and, in Oscar-winner Halle Berry, perhaps the highest-profile Bond Girl in the franchise's history.

One of these decades someone will make a Bond as good as the titles and the theme music and the martini-ordering. In the meantime, enjoy the accessories.

No one's going to accuse DIE ANOTHER DAY of being a sophisticated spy movie. It's an over-the-top action movie that is to be enjoyed best with a big bucket of popcorn.

Face it, Die Another Day simply blows the competition away. If you want excitement, laughs and pure sex appeal, remember one thing: Bond's really do have more fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

October 24, 2012
An attractive cast, silly gadgets, bad puns, worse CGI and a totally ludicrous plot make this the least of the Brosnan Bonds, but it all paves the way for an injection of grit with Casino Royale.

An old Bond for a new century, in which 50-year-old Brosnan, just starting to show his age, has to share time with an amazing glut of awful CGI.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
Nick Rogers

There was absolutely no choice but to dial it down afterward but not because "Die Another Day" is an abomination of which to be ashamed. Alongside "You Only Live Twice," it's Bond at his most aggressively outlandish and shamelessly entertaining.
