    Synopsis


    Tomorrow Never Dies
    Roger Spottiswoode (Air America) directed this film, the 18th chapter in the 35-year-old James Bond series (excluding Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again). James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) learns billionaire media mogul Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) is manipulating world events via an exclusive flow of information through his satellite system reaching all corners of the planet. With a stealth battleship sinking a British naval vessel, Carver sees that the Chinese are blamed. Crashing Carver's party in Hamburg, Bond meets "journalist" Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh), later revealed as a Chinese agent. In a brief tryst, Bond renews his past relationship with Carver's wife Paris (Teri Hatcher). Carver dispatches Stamper (Gotz Otto) and other goons to cancel Bond, who eludes attackers with some of his new gadgets. In Southeast Asia, after Bond and Wai Lin scuba dive into the sunken British ship, they are captured by Stamper, handcuffed, and taken to Saigon where they make a motorcycle escape. To thwart Carver's plans for WWIII, the two agents head for Carver's stealth ship where a cruise missile is aimed at Beijing. Principal photography began April 1, 1997 in the new Eon Productions studio facility at Frogmore, northwest of London, and on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios. Locations included the UK, Hamburg, Southeast Asia, Mexico, and off the Florida coast. The trademark Bond pre-title sequence was filmed in the French Pyrenees snowfields, centered around one of the few high-altitude operational airfields in Europe. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      James Bond prevents a war between England & China

      TOMORROW NEVER DIES is the second James Bond movie starring Pierce Brosnan and is probably the best of his four. The plot involves a mad media mogul, inspired by William Randolph Hearst (who also inspired CITIZEN KANE) who tries to instigate a war between England and China so he can step in and get the news media monopoly for the largest nation on Earth. This plot is recycled from earlier Bond movies such as YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE and THE SPY WHO LOVED ME in which the villain tries to start a war between two superpowers. Terri Hatcher is stunning as one of the Bond Girls although her appearance is relatively brief. Vincent Schiavelli (GHOST) steals the show and provides the best humor as a doctor who moonlights as a ruthless assassin. Look for Michael G. Wilson, co-producer and Cubby Broccoli's stepson, in a cameo role as one of the villain's media henchmen. TOMORROW NEVER DIES is not only Pierce Brosnan's best Bond movie, but is also one of the better Bond movies in the entire series. After TOMORROW NEVER DIES, the Bond scripts were written by the team of Purvis and Wade and the script quality of most of the Bond movies declined considerably.

      As an action movie this one is alright

      There are some solid action scenes and the opening sets the movie up very effectively. The problem with the film lies with the villain, Elliot Carver. In the past, Bond was taking on larger than life bad guys, those who dwelled inside volcanoes or operated off of secret islands. Here, Bond is going head to head with a media mogul – it just isn't the same. Sure, Carver has a nuke and he's definitely off his rocker enough to pose a threat, but still... he's a glorified businessman. When media personalities like Rupert Murdoch are household names, this takes some of the charm out of the film, it's almost that it's too grounded in reality.

      In his second outing as 007, Pierce Brosnan ignites the screen yet again with another full-throttle adventure to take us on! The new villain, Elliot Carver is one of the most hilarious ever on a Bond adventure, his plan-create WWIII. The new Bond girl Wai Lin teams up with Brosnan to fight against Carver. Performing the title song is Sheryl Crow with K.d Lang doing a slightly different version at the end of the movie. this movie has it all:Ship attacks, motorcycle chases and total out-of-your seat fun! I have seen it 273 times and it is a Blast!!!

      Great Bond Movie!

      I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers. This is perhaps my favorite Bond Movie. I had this on VHS, and finally bought it on DVD. Great action, Great cast of actors, and some really nice Bond "gadgets" in the movie. There is a good amount of the typical Bond type action at various locations throughout the world. I would highly recommend this movie! It's better than Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day.

      This bond has a play on the whole tech/media business man takeover ... it has Teri hatcher , Michelle Yeoh as the bond girls ... it has a kind a Hong Kong action feel do to having Michelle Yeoh as one of bonds allies ... it's a great ride ... its not Pierce Brosnan best that would be Goldeneye but its a close second ... the blu ray is clear and the sound is also ... So take the ride with 007 its a fun one ...

      This was Brosnan's second turn as Bond, and for being released only two years after "Goldeneye," everything about it seems more mature; more... classic. The score is fantastic, the villain is outlandish, and the Blu-Ray quality is better than the DVD, albeit not leaps and bounds better. Still an excellent choice!

      One of the Worst 'Bond' Films

      Posted
      kevman79

      This was a bad 'Bond' flick, so bad in fact, that I didn't go to see anymore Pierce Brosnan Bond films after this. Shameful follow up to the impressive 'Goldeneye.' Widescreen, but die-hard fans may want to purchase the heavier 2-disc special edition.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Eh, better than Moore era

      Not the best Brosnan Bond piece, but still better than the Roger Moore era. If you just want the basic Bond package of pretty girls, explosions and gadgets, this will definitely be your cup of tea. If you're looking for more, well... Sorry.
