Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

A competent, if sometimes by-the-numbers entry to the 007 franchise, Tomorrow Never Dies may not boast the most original plot but its action sequences are genuinely thrilling.

If Connery was Sexy Bond and George Lazenby was One-Shot Bond and Roger Moore was Geezer Bond and Timothy Dalton was Bored Bond, then Brosnan should be Posh Bond.

Top notch popcorn entertainment, straight from the Hollywood factory. This is even better than GOLDENEYE.

It succeeds, although it is let down by its weak villain. But there are enough stunts, quips and high-tech thrills to keep you from caring.

A thrill machine akin to one of the canon's more cleverly naughty entendres, uttered here: "You always were a cunning linguist, James." Obvious and crass to please everyone's inner schoolboy, but presented with just enough eloquence and ingenuity.

Not, in aggregate, the worst of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, but... it has the weakest excuse for a conflict.

One watches a Bond film for two hours of spy intrigue, car chases, fights, explosions, and beautiful women, and on that fairly undemanding level, it delivers the goods.

Kinetic, knowing, crammed with high-tech gadgetry and sophisticated in the most superficial sense of the term: What else could you ask of a James Bond picture?

Efficient action, gleaming product placement and, in Michelle Yeoh, a convincing foil for Bond.

The film seldom reaches the pitch of Goldfinger, but it does stay on tune, thanks to performers who know how to belt out an old favorite.

Even the evil henchman is badly picked: Ricky Jay is a lovable magician, not a hard-nosed killer.

Michelle Yeoh is a the lone bright star as the Chinese operative who occasionally, and rewardingly, resorts to Jackie Chan styled chop socky combat.

Audience Reviews for Tomorrow Never Dies

perfectly made film and superb actors and actresses. it has the makings of a golden movie and will be remembered and loved well into the future. family safe. i loved it when i first saw and and still do. another brilliant bond film. Pierce Brosnan really out does himself.this is yet another fantastic bond movie with all of the thrills and action of the rest. pierce Bronson is drawing up to being as good as Sean Connery and roger Moore. i am however disappointed he didn't continue doing the bond movies. his witty lines and stupid actions make a great comedy/action film packed with everything.its guarantied to get you hooked onto the other movies. it is bonds 2nd best film next to die another day with Hallie berry. (its a must see to.) 5 Stars 1-27-14

Tomorrow Never Dies is a step down from Goldeneye and feels like a return to the Roger Moore era of the franchise. It lacks personality and brings back the cheesy one-liners that plagued the series during that time while simultaneously feeling more like a generic action flick than a Bond film. It's technically well made, like Bond always is, but doesn't entertain for its whole running length, despite being the first Bond film in forever to clock in at less than two hours. I didn't like Brosnan as much here as I did in Goldeneye, while Johnathon Price's Carver is about as generic of a Bond villain as you can get. The plot just fails to muster any excitement. Michelle Yeoh made her Hollywood debut and does a solid job as a sort-of buddy agent who helps Bond. Teri Hatcher looks nice, but is unmemorable and only in the film for a short time. Even Q is only in the film for like a minute. There are some solid action sequences in this film that keep it from being bottom of the barrel in the series history and it might entertain you for a while, but it's not in any way memorable. Thankfully The World is Not Enough would kick some energy back into the franchise next.

I grew up with Pierce Brosnan as Bond, so his Bond will always be one I look back on fondly. Is he my favorite? No, but rewatching this, I think he is right in the middle of the pack. This is a very standard Bond movie. Exotic locales, beautiful women, and he must thwart an evil man's plan of global domination. The movie is very 90's, much like the other Bond movies are easily dated. Jonathan Pryce does an ok job as the villain, but nothing really makes him stand out and stay memorable as other villains. Even mediocre Bond movies are better than most action movies.

Decent, but not great Bond film.

In all honesty, i don't much remember the high tech inspired plot, or its specifics, but I do recall it seemed somewhat timely in terms of using the media in a goal for *sigh* WWIII and global domination.

There's some of the typical over the top stuff like the stealth battle boat, and that's okay, but for me the film really shines with the great action sequences, stunts, and the awesome opening titles set to Sheryl Crow's solid theme song. Brosnan and Dench are once again good, Desmond Llewelyn likewise shines in his long running term as Q, and Michelle Yeoh makes for a great Bond Girl, especially since she can actually hold her own, and isn't just a sex object.

One of the better entries from the Brosnan era, and a worthwhile film overall.
