Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Tomorrow Never Dies
After weeks of media bombardment with Tomorrow Never Dies product tie-in commercials, it's clear that the studio and the film's producers have reinvented movie promotion. Now they need to focus their efforts on reinventing the Bond movies.
In Tomorrow Never Dies, the news is mostly good. And when it comes to movies, there's no news like good news.
In the latest James Bond, our hero saves the world from brand-name unawareness. Tomorrow Never Dies is a dramatized trade show; imagine Comdex or the Geneva Automobile Salon with a plot.
Yeoh proves so much Bond's equal that they wind up sharing steering privileges on a death-defying motorcycle, her hand on the clutch and his on the brake, their other arms twined around each other. It's a pairing made in sequel heaven.
Does this work? Is it worth the trouble? Not really.
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.
