After the first quarter or so, the action picks up and doesn't stop. The drill was pretty cool. Jonathan Pryce was an awesome villain.

A action thrill that isn't better than Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies is pretty by-the-numbers

Jesus, Bond has so many girls in this film it's scary. The action is drawn out too far, like a Michael Bay film. Which is a problem when it comes to bond.

Slightly better than GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies is average, not in quality, but in action, among other things.

Not as good as GoldenEye, but still a fun Bond film nonetheless

Typical James Bond movie with good action, stunts and an interesting story line. I like Pierce Brosnan as the next James Bond and this time his leading lady does some good action stunts too

It's fine, it's whatever. It's got parts.

Oh the memories. I grew up playing the PlayStation game long before I even saw the movie. It might not be the highest rated film of all time but it is still fun nonetheless. It's kind of cool to see James Bond working with another agent together as a team. And I really like that tough henchmen. He was cool. Lots of chases, lots of explosions, and plenty of fun cheesy lines, that for me make it a classic Bond film. It kind it even has the feeling of a war film. So all in all, great film.

This movie got very harsh reviews IMO. It wasn't a great Bond movie but I pretty much enjoyed it till the final 20 mins of it which I felt was a pretty crappy ending/climax.

While there action and the stunts are impressive, the story is another cliche "start another Third World War". Even though Bronson is a bit of a stiff, he still looks good as Bond. The overall film gets boring real fast because there is no way the viewer believes Bond is going to lose.

Better than the first one.

More than a bit of a drop off from GoldenEye, but still enjoyable.

Even though I'm giving it the same rating as Pierce Brosnans first Bond effort it's not as good thanks to the absolutely stupid plot, Starting WW3 just to get better ratings on your TV show is just beyond silly for a plot especially a Bond Film, The action was pretty fun but yet again the silly one liners ruined them, Some good stunts and a nice bike chase too but apart from that there's nothing new or memorable, If you're looking for good action you will be happy if you want a solid well acted Bond film with a good story you will leave very dissapointed.

A cool Brosnan/Bond Sequel that doesn´t lack on its action-packed sequences, among the best car scenes(BMW 750il) nor the intressting villian but on everything else.

Not as intriguing or gloriously entertaining as Goldeneye, and there is nothing interesting or intimidating about Jonathan Pryce as the Steve Jobs-looking villain, but still Tomorrow Never Dies has just enough amount of action and usual Bond zingers, and Pierce Brosnan is a perfectly fine Bond.

Over-the-top to the Nth degree, Tomorrow Never Dies is a masterful exercise in action cinema. As a Bond film it disregards subtlety for style which can be a good thing if you like your action sleek and exciting.

This movie has some of the best fight scenes in all of the Bond movies. Cool story too

Utterly preposterous, and if you're in the right mood, very funny. Rupert Murdoch's less evil English counterpart starts a global military apocalypse to give his news shows better ratings.

It's a glorious '90s throwback, in which newspapers actually have power, British and Russian generals briefly stand shoulder-to-shoulder, the TVs are monolithic blurry boxes and the mobile phones are just starting to become non-gigantic. The body count is GARGANTUAN (which nobody cares about), poor henchmen and even innocent bystanders are punched/kicked in the face just for the sake of it, and the #2 baddie is a Nazi posterboy literally named (I'm not joking) Mr Stamper. It's incredibly silly. It's incredibly fun.

It's also a big improvement on Goldeneye (in my opinion at least), with Bond able to communicate beyond one-liners, more memorable action sequences, steamier 'romance', more of a point to the plot, and a much better sense of humour.

Jonathan Pryce is maybe not the absolute most menacing baddie ever to grace the series, but he says "Mr Bond" better than anyone in quite a few decades. Other than that, the only real flaw as far as I'm concerned is that it's a bit long, so as often happens with Brosnan-era Bonds, you get some action fatigue towards the end. This is mitigated if you're a sadist like me who gets a kick out of seeing numerous terrible things happen to henchmen, however.

Despite painting the super-spy into an oftentimes boring corner, Brosnan's second Bond outing at least boasts pulse-pounding action set pieces that never say die. Okay, so the 18th 007 adventure fails to put forth the most ambitious story but the dust-ups that result boast enough explosive awesomeness to warrant your full attention. Take for example one ridiculously exciting bit of staging that results in a BMW motorcycle jumping over the rotating blades of a chopper hovering between rooftops. It's winning moments like this, however, that punctuate a largely connect-the-dots tale where even an ace actor like Pryce can't make spiked lemonade out of a lemon of a villain that's so dull on paper.

In this PG-rated spy thriller, James Bond (Brosnan) heads to stop a media mogul's (Pryce) plan to induce war between China and the UK in order to obtain exclusive global media coverage.

Brosnan has his shtick down pat by Tomorrow Never Dies, which is good and bad. Connery and (later) Craig got better as they went along, which enhanced sometimes sub-standard material. The actor formerly known as Remington Steel by this point in his career, however, seems to operate on charismatic auto-pilot. Being only as good as your material only works insofar as the quality of the material and co-stars. Action aside, Michelle Yeoh as hard-hitting Chinese spy Wai Lin proves way more memorable than Bond's ex-girlfriend, played by Teri Hatcher, which is perfect summary as to the film' concentration on stylish over substantive. Sadly, the material behind his next such outing wouldn't have Brosnan's back nearly as much.

Bottom line: Sociopath Media

For what is it, Tomorrow Never Dies is thrilling and entertaining, but lacks in story and good acting.
