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.

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

Brosnan gives it his best and with Yeoh, he's got a capable dance partner, but this 007 edition felt like a retread story that was already old news.

The plot works like a too-well-oiled machine taking us from one fifteen-minute action sequence to one that is possibly twenty minutes without ever slowing down for the audience to ask if it all makes sense, which it does not.

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

The 18th James Bond movie features the usual saturation bombardment.

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

What it does, it does well. But it's cinematic junk food that you would normally forget before the credits have even stopped rolling.

Michelle Yeoh is a standout in an otherwise by-the-numbers entry in this not-so-gracefully ageing series.

The filmmakers appear to have started with a series of stunts...and built a script around them.

Lead Pierce Brosnan seems distracted, and even the standard pre-credits production number falls flat before the main story begins.

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.

Does this work? Is it worth the trouble? Not really.

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.

I look forward to the James Bond movie that's bold enough to start knocking down the icons that the series has created.

If you like Bond movies, you'll like it; if you don't, you won't.

Unfortunately, like most Bond films, this entry is directed by a no-talent hack who never really crafts the action into anything more than effective yet unoriginal bing-bang-booming that you forget quickly, which also describes the whole film.

By sticking to the formula so religiously, Tomorrow Never Dies sells itself short.
