Tomorrow Never Dies Reviews

March 28, 2019
As Bonds go, though, Tomorrow Never Dies is pleasant enough brain candy, although Brosnan's efforts deserve better... maybe next time, Meester Bond.

[Director Roger] Spottiswoode serves up a glutinous mix of pastiche and parody, without seeming to know whether he's recycling or debunking his cliches.

Despite the film's faults, David Arnold's score, which layers industrialised sounds over traditional orchestration, can make some sequences seem more exciting than they actually are.

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.

Tomorrow Never Dies is as overproduced as one of Carver's cable broadcasts -- incredibly noisy, flashy and busy without being terribly exciting.

Flaws aside, this was at the time the best Bond movie since the heyday of Mr Connery.

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.
November 1, 2015
From the carnage of a troubled shoot emerged Brosnan's best Bond, striking the correct balance of menace, thrills and humour, using a chase-movie template to ensure attention never wavers.

Brosnan cements his reputation as the best James Bond since Sean Connery, and sometimes he even gives the master a run for his money.

Good news is, Tomorrow Never Dies is highly entertaining. It will thrill novices and delight old-guard Bondphiles.

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.
November 1, 2015
The good news in Tomorrow Never Dies is that Pierce Brosnan fills out James Bond's tux considerably better. In his second go at Bond, he seems tougher and less-lightweight.
November 1, 2015
While it seems a good idea to have fresh directors on each new film, veteran Roger Spottiswoode doesn't seem to bring much to the party.

Does this work? Is it worth the trouble? Not really.
November 1, 2015
The first James Bond film I've liked in many a year.

A few of the later scenes generate psychological or narrative thrust for a few minutes at a stretch, but most of the picture has all the warmth and humanity of Bond's robotic car.
November 1, 2015
Tomorrow Never Dies isn't one of the great Bonds, by any means. But it's familiar, flashy and enjoyable in all the right places.
November 1, 2015
A zippy 007 romp that draws as heavily from the Asian action genre as from the formula that has served the series so well for 35 years.
