Top notch popcorn entertainment, straight from the Hollywood factory. This is even better than GOLDENEYE.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
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.
| Original Score: 4/5
Not, in aggregate, the worst of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, but... it has the weakest excuse for a conflict.
| Original Score: 6/10
Bond is just a glorified stuntman now; he's lost his license to thrill.
| Original Score: C+
Bond, James Bond. For mature eyes only.
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.
The 18th James Bond movie features the usual saturation bombardment.
...a briskly-paced and thoroughly entertaining James Bond adventure...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The major episodes are, as always, well-executed.
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.
A solid but somewhat by-the-numbers entry in the James Bond cycle.
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.
a great follow up to goldeneye
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The winsome pic gives the people what they want. At least, what they want from the Bond franchise.
| Original Score: B
Even the evil henchman is badly picked: Ricky Jay is a lovable magician, not a hard-nosed killer.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Flawed, but fantastic fun all the same.
Michelle Yeoh is a the lone bright star as the Chinese operative who occasionally, and rewardingly, resorts to Jackie Chan styled chop socky combat.
