It's the same old Bond.
November 2, 2015
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James Bond gets bad news in Die Another Day: They've rescinded his license to kill.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.
November 2, 2015
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.
October 13, 2008
The problem for me is that the story is so entirely at the service of the special effects.

What makes this the best Bond in years is the surefootedness of Brosnan's performance, as well as Tamahori's fanboy insistence on covering all bases.
November 25, 2002
I expect more from Bond, so thumbs down.
November 23, 2002
That this Bond will be smarter is clear from its title sequence, which leaves you both shaken and stirred.
November 22, 2002
The film is so fraught with explosions and chases that the action eventually feels numbing.
November 22, 2002
A bit like watching a champion fighter win a title bout on points rather than a satisfying knockout.
November 22, 2002
Die Another Day never quite finds real excitement or genuine wit.
November 22, 2002
The new movie lacks something, a special something.
November 22, 2002
The latest and least of the Pierce Brosnan Bonds.
November 22, 2002
A lot smarter than your average Bond.
Top Critic
November 22, 2002
The most thrilling, lavishly designed and imaginative Bond picture in years.
November 22, 2002
Die Another Day is stylish and state of the art, and Bond aficionados will love the anniversary homages to previous films.
November 22, 2002
If you watch movies chiefly for stunts and special effects, this Bond is for you. If you watch to see a beloved formula regurgitated, make tracks.
November 22, 2002
It's a movie that tries to have it both ways -- and for the most part, succeeds.
November 22, 2002
'Die Another Day's' special effects will make your eyes open so wide your contacts might fall out, but the spy caper is double-crossed by a stupid script littered with one-liners so dumb that 007 actually makes XXX (Vin Diesel) sound like he's clever.
