Destined to be the Most Underrated Bond Film? (by xizor-3)
"Die Another Day", the 20th cinematic epic in the 40 year-old ongoing adventures of ultra-suave superspy James Bond takes the sleuth to giddy heights he hasn't reached since Roger Moore's take on the character in "Octopussy" twenty years ago . Pierce Brosnan is perhaps the best of the five actors to take on the role, but it had been felt by many that he had yet even with GoldenEye, the 90's classic that even fans today judge each new film against to find the perfect script that would put him in his most memorable adventure yet. Luckily, with Kiwi director <more>
Lee Tamahori "Once Were Warriors", "Along Came a Spider" at the helm, James Bond returns in a film that shakes up the system but keeps the all-too-familiar elements that we have come to love.Pierce Brosnan as James Bond: When watching "Die Another Day", you won't be comparing Irishman Brosnan to Sean Connery or Roger Moore. With this, his fourth performance as James Bond, Brosnan takes full command of the role. He wisely takes the character to new depths such as Bond's 14 month capture and torture in a North Korean military prison without becoming melodramatic or too overly emotional. He remains true to the character and as audience-pleasing as any post-Connery actor can get without feeling like he's trying to imitate Connery's suaveness and cruelty or Roger Moore's comedy and constant winking at the audience. With Tamahori's help, he emotionally develops the character in the ways that Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby failed and still remains the all-knowing James Bond you know and love. Bond is a human in this film and not a superhero.Halle Berry as Jinx Johnson: With Halle Berry's introduction to James Bond comes perhaps the film's most controversial mixed-bag. With her entrance in the film a homage to the bikini-clad beach entrance of Ursula Andress in "Dr. No" , she enters the high-style history of the Bond Girls - but in a good way? Berry is perhaps the most exotic beauty of the recent Bond Girls - and that helps; but her character is plagued with some terrible and cringe-worthy dialogue "Yo Mama!", "Read this, bitch!", etc. . The street-smart aspects of her character that are meant to seperate her from the purely British Miranda Frost Rosamund Pike seem undefensively trashy in the film when Bond Girls are meant to represent an unattainable amount of style and glamour. Berry's first scenes in Cuba are chock full of the feminine glamour and clever dialogue; but when we meet her again in Iceland, the almost trashy street-smart aspects of her character appear. It's one thing to have an independent female spy in her character as has been done right with the female leads in "The Spy Who Loved Me", "Moonraker", and "Tomorrow Never Dies" , but it is another and more disappointing thing for Berry's character to have been taken in the direction that she has. It's a shame this happened to Berry. And what is with her name? The character was originally written as Jinx Jordan; a far more exotic name. But shouldn't we have guessed that "Johnson" would be used eventually?Toby Stephens as Gustav Graves: With four Bond films under his belt, it's a shame that Brosnan has only had one truly satisfying villian Sean Bean in "GoldenEye" . Luckily for us, the producers have cast a great villian in Toby Stephens. Stephens starts the film as the classic Bond villian; a mysterious billionaire who's bent on holding the world for ransom. Only at the end of the second act do we come to find out that Gustav Graves is not all he appears to be. Stephens is perfect at capturing the public sneer and arrogance of a British billionaire who appears to be "Public Friend #1" but reaching an intensity in his eyes in only a matter of seconds. Tamahori not only gave us an exciting action sequence in the sword fight at the Blades Gentleman's Club in the middle of the film; he gave us a multi-level character study of Graves in the face of losing How far will this character go to win? . Eventually, the layers begin to fade away and we begin to see that Gustav Graves is on the edge of insanity. The scene where he shoots his father aboard the Antonov is particularly revealing in the lack of emotion he shows. Great acting from Stephens, who I hope will go down in the books as one of the classic Bond villains.Rosamund Pike as Miranda Frost: Where Halle Berry's character was very unappealing and uninteresting in personality, Rosamund Pike's character, MI6 agent Miranda Frost, is the opposite: a sexy, smart, and well-spoken character. The only negative aspect of Miranda Frost is her small amount of screentime. For such an interesting and important character to the story, she is given surprisingly little presence in the film which unfortunately makes her fight with Jinx at the end not as climactic as it could have been. Though she's no Xenia Onnatop or Fiona Volpe, Pike holds her own as a Bond Girl.Rick Yune as Zao: After several films with disappointing and unmemorable henchmen, the producers and writers have given us a great villian in Zao. An interesting visual image in the tradition of Odd Job, Jaws, or the often-forgotten Red Grant, Zao becomes a truly important character to the film without being overplayed. He appears to have a brother-like relationship with the main villain of the film and is, for a change, an interesting character behind the horribly disfigured face.The Supporting Cast - Judi Dench, John Cleese, and Samantha Bond: The supporting cast all provide great performances and work expertly with their well-written dialogue. Judi Dench expands on her character from the emotionally-charged situation we found her in in the last film and provides an extension of the ball-busting boss kind of relationship that she and 007 had in "GoldenEye". John Cleese steps up to the role of Q with confidence and wit, leaping away from the buffoonery he was written in "The World is Not Enough". Samantha Bond is terrific as always, giving us a witty and clever Miss Moneypenny and taking the character in a completely new direction with her limited amount of screentime.Screenplay by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade: After the emotional and complex story that Neil Purvis and Robert Wade developed for "The World is Not Enough", it is not a surprise that they were given a chance to write the screenplay for "Die Another Day". Though the team is great at crafting great stories and situations, they had a miss in the character of Jinx Johnson. Where all of the other new characters in the story are interesting and complex without being melodramatic or cheesy, Jinx Johnson is both. She is given weak and cringe-worthy dialogue. It is a shame for the character and the film that Bruce Fierstein was not given a chance to polish the dialogue between Jinx and Bond as he had with the film before. The writers, however, are great at giving us a Bond that is the best of both the Fleming and film incarnations. While not quite the sparkling dialogue of "Thunderball" or "GoldenEye", it works. The subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle references to the past 20 films are a treat. Should they be invited back to write the next film, I'll have full faith that they will give us a good story. However, I have one minor complaint; and that is that the caper is basically a repeat of the "hold the world for ransom" threat that Blofeld devised in "Diamonds are Forever". It's a shame that they couldn't have come up with a better caper for such an interesting villain. Could we maybe have Fierstein back for the next film, if only to polish the dialogue?Editing by Christian Wagner: One of the more controversial aspects of "Die Another Day" is the very modern style of cutting employed by editor Christian Wagner; something that has drawn much criticism from the fans who favor the more traditional style in a Bond film. For me, the speed-up/slow-down style of editing used in some of the action scenes works as a great advantage to the film. Often times, the editing technique that is a typical trait of Christian Wagner's work wakes up the audience in a fight scene or a dramatic change of location the transition from M's office to Iceland, for example . This is the modern style of cutting action films; and while it may not be as unique as Peter Hunt who pioneered the editing styles of action films in the early Bond films, it is the way things are done today. I would rather have dramatic and hyper-active editing with fast and exciting action such as this than the dull and worn-out editing by Jim Clark in "The World is Not Enough".Photography and Production Design: Director of Photography David Tattersall "Star Wars: Episode II", "Vertical Limit" gives us one of the most incredibly-filmed entries in the series and puts great locations like Spain doubling for Cuba and Iceland to terrific use on film. My only complaint is that the producers seem to find it easier to double for locations than actually go to them. Coastal Spain stands in greatly for Cuba and if I didn't know about it, I probably would never have noticed . Much to Tattersall and Tamahori's credit, it seems like they have thrown all of the effort they have into making the locations feel like they really are North Korea or Hong Kong. Unfortunately, however, the scene where Brosnan appears at the "Hong Kong Yaht Club" with the harbor behind him looks almost obviously green-screen. Production Designer Peter Lamont "Titanic", "True Lies" has suceeded in creating some terrific sets for the film, most notably in Gustav Grave's Ice Palace lair in Iceland. Also a notable success in the set design is Col. Moon's North Korean base that appears in the opening scene in the film. Lamont and Tattersall together provide a great and glamorous atmosphere for "Die Another Day" that is rarely felt in a Bond film. Without the expert handling of both, the locations and sets never would have seamlessly blended together as well as they have and the credibility would have been lost as with "The World is Not Enough" .Title Sequence by Danny Klienmann: The visuals of the title sequence by Danny Klienmann are absolutely terrific. Kudos to him for taking a risk an
End Of Golden Bond Era & Last Great Film In Franchise (by FilmMan47)
i mean it from the title i am serious about this.i am a huge James bond fan I've collected every bond film on Discs.so far i enjoy Timothy Dalton & Pierce Brosnan bond films more then any other.die another day 2002 is pierce Brosnan;s 4th and last best film in James bond franchise.Brosnan started in golden-eye 1995 which is my favorite bond film die another day got bad reviews but it became a million dollars hit.i love this film no matter what anyone says.the plot is about bond gets trapped in north Korea & after that he goes out to find the terrorist Zao he later bumps into the <more>
famous Gustav Graves/colonel and finds out that he is planning to create a new war. how bond solves the mission you will have to see it yourself.i agree that this film got a lot of Cgi,Vfx & other stuff but remember this is a film so watch it only to get entertained.the cast & story is great here with hot bond girls.i wish Mr Brosnan did a few more bond films after this & i wish he comes back because after this the Daniel Craig era began in 2006 with casino Royal .the franchise never needed a reboot but anyways this for me is the last best bond film his James bond history and end of golden bond era of Pierce Brosnan as 007.just don't listen to bad reviews leave the brain behind & enjoy itMy rating is 10/10 a must have DVD for every bond fan out there.i recommend watching it its a total entertainer.
I think this films is quite possibly the best bond film ever made. Definetly the best Brosnan bond film . Great script, excellent soundtrack Madonna's track aint too good but i've heard worse . Its a bit actiony for typical james bond, and there are some slightly implausible bits, but i'm happy to see that bond is still pushing the technology barrier to its limits. And anyone that says the invisible car is impossible is just wrong. Various research labs throughout the world have been working on a similar technology using a variation based on optical fibre. I'm very glad i <more>
Brosnan departs on a series high note (by mnpollio)
Although it has now become the "in" thing to deride Pierce Brosnan's swan song as James Bond as being too unbelievable and gadget-oriented, it was well-reviewed and the most successful Bond film at the time of release.Bond: Brosnan was still fully invested in the role at the time of his departure. Unlike Sean Connery, whose boredom with the role was starting to show, Brosnan went out with class. In each film, he was looser and more comfortable with the part than its predecessor.The women: Halle Berry makes a breath-takingly sexy entrance a la Ursula Andress rising from the sea. <more>
Unlike Andress, she actually has some role to play in the subsequent action. Her banter with Brosnan seems a bit forced to me and the comic timing slightly off with the double entendres. Also, for an experienced secret agent the writers make her awfully easy to capture, but even with all of that she still ranks as one of the more memorable of the Bond women. Rosamund Pike is also effective as the aptly named Miranda Frost, whose aloofness allows her to resist Bond for much of the film, while she is on her own apparent mission.The villain: I must admit that I quite enjoyed the villains in this piece. Toby Stephens, sneer almost surgically in place, is terrific as an arrogant showboater who taunts Bond at every opportunity and is one of the rare main villains to be physically young and robust enough to give Brosnan a run for his money. His back story is unlikely, but fairly interesting for a Bond villain. Rick Yune is also effective and striking as a co-hort with diamonds embedded in his face due to an accident earlier in the film.Some of the visual effects in the film are easy to tell that they are matte screens, but the film moves like lightning and manages to remain consistently inventive throughout. Additions like the invisible car and assorted gadgets seem far less improbable during the course of the film than they do in retrospect, but add to the overall sense of fun. The plot is fairly straight-forward and coherent, although the identity of a mole is obvious enough that one wonders why neither Bond or M figure it out before they do. Intense action scenes, jaw-dropping gadgets, a fine cast and exotic locales all add to the successful concoction. The only drawback: the bizarre title song by Madonna does not really fit the crummy mold of "wailing diva" numbers that the series had sunk to, but instead defines an entirely new level of crap.
Die Another Day was shaping up to be the best Bond film ever. My favourite Bond by a mile was back. There was a director that you believed wanted to make a modern Bond, better than all its predecessors. You knew they had the locations. You had seen the bad guy with the diamonds in his face, and he looked too cool to be a disappointment - he was Bond's Darth Maul. The Bond girls looked better than ever. The title was crap, but you learn you live with it Beyond the Ice always sounded better to me . The theme tune had caused controversy, only serving to increase the anticipation. Arriving <more>
at the cinema where the queue was actually out of the building , it was almost impossible to not feel like a five year old on Christmas morning.The opening is spectacular, just as you would expect. Not only that, but Bond seems somehow more human in it. There are the usual politically `safe' villain nation - North Korea chosen this time, probably on the grounds that they aren't likely to see the movie. The stunts have continued to grow exponentially, getting bigger and better than the last movie. The excitement levels have been suitably encouraged by the time the opening credits kick in. And blow me, Madonna's theme actually works. I'm not really sure why, but it does. The credits themselves have also grown up. Its not just naked women performing random acts of gymnastics in silhouette, although they are there. The credits themselves actually serve as part of the narrative, which is a blessing as far as I'm concerned. I have never enjoyed the opening credits of a Bond film until now. I was seriously optimistic about this movie.Pierce Brosnan has finally grown into a rounded Bond. He has developed from the simple suave manner he had already perfected in Remmington Steel into a character with underlying insecurities about the people he works for and a contradicting loyalty to the country he would die for. For the first time since Brosnan took the baton you really want him to win, and to beat the bad guys in a way no bad guy has been beaten before. You also find yourself actually wanting him to get the girl, but not for one night as he inevitably will, but for good. As for the girls, Jinx Berry is essentially the American PC version of Bond. She, is black, is independent, is successful, sleeps with anyone she wants - Oprah would be so proud. She is also the first person to have reasonable graphic sex with Bond, although this is still a Bond film so its not that graphic. The main problem I had with Berry's character was her slightly boyish form save for the two obvious differences : short hair, slim and muscular. This problem comes to light most during the aforementioned sex scene. The scene is all done in silhouette and, did we not know better, we could be convinced that it was a gay sex scene. The Bond girl crown is stolen in Die Another Day by Miranda Frost Pike . She is far more feminine, sexier and an all round more convincing character.The two/three main bad guys are also way above average. Colonel Moon Will Yun Lee is convincingly hard. We meet him as he practices his martial arts on a punch bag with human stuffing, and we are very glad we aren't in his bad books. His henchman, Zao Rick Yune is a modern Jaws. The pair of them are clearly psychotic, and completely perfect for Bond villains. Although the pair of them are outdone by the malevolent Gustav Graves Stevens and his Teflon diamond-fortune-funded lifestyle. He is the anti-Bond. He is English although he admits it is an adopted nationality , suave, likes the finer things and is determined to win at all costs. He also looks like he might be the one guy who could beat James Bond, you believe he stands a chance of winning this fight. The rest of the cast, Judi Dench as she is credited , John Cleese, Michael Madsen and the usual background characters, they hold their own. Dench is her usual brilliant self, possibly giving her most convincing M performance yet, and Cleese has taken on the role of Q he received a promotion from R and appears to have set himself up for as long a stint as Desmond Llewellyn's before him. Samantha Bond on the other hand serves as nothing more than a cheap joke at the end, a shame as I rather liked her interpretation of Miss Moneypenny.The film itself looks somehow different from the traditional Bond visuals. There is a far more modern feel to the images. It is grainier and harsher and nowhere near as shiny as previous pieces in the oeuvre. There are also original to Bond films stylistic traits brought in by Lee Tamahori Once Were Warriors which will make this Bond film either unique amongst Bond films, or will make it age badly. Within the piece though they keep the pace fast and edgy. Tamahori also looks like he should actually be a Bond villain, a fact that we can assume has not escaped him, so has paid a lot of attention to the styling of his bad guys. He has also managed to use a script which could have been tacky in its nods to the past and made it sexy and amusing. It appears that as the twentieth in a series everyone involved has taken the best bits of the past and pulled them all together.Die Another Day will be many peoples favourite James Bond movie, and certainly most peoples' favourite Brosnan Bond movie. Personally it comes in my top five, but I cant help feeling that there couple of minutes that the movie would have benefited from losing. Stood against any other pretenders to the crown xXx, The Bourne Identity this effort is head shoulders and bow tie above the rest. A modern movie, with more than a dash of Moore era narrative and plenty of jokes in there for the aficionado, Tamahori has directed a Bond movie that will be remembered as one of the better ones. And if the Broccoli family have any brains in their head they will get Brosnan and Tamahori back for another one, next time with them learning from their mistakes. As for the suggestion of a Jinx spin off series, it may have the face and the breasts, but I just can't see it having the legs.
Bond Pierce Brosnan is sent to North Korea to assassinate a rouge diamond trader, Colonel Moon Will Yun Lee . But his mission is compromised when a 'mole' in the MI6 betrays him by warning the Koreans that he is coming. He gets captured but manages to escape on a hover craft. He ends up 'killing' Moon and then is again captured by the general Moon's farther and is put into torture. After 14 months he gets released back to the MI6 where he is sent to spy on another rouge diamond trader Gustave Graves who turns out to be Moon who as gone under genetic science to change <more>
his identity. Bond carrys on his mission to kill Moon and to find his betrayer...Main Review: As this is Pierce's last outing of Bond I was rather upset as he is my favourite Bond. The movie truly showed all the actors skills and is the 20th bond in the long going franchise created by Flemming and turned into motion pictures by Cubby Broccoli. This is truly one of the best Bonds and is the first to involve CGI computer generated images in the movie. The producers brought back the Aston Martin which is famous in the original movies. Directed by Lee Tamahori I felt he perfected his job. I wish they made more Bonds like this.In memory of: Syd Cain production designer and story board artist of James Bond from Dr.No to Goldeneye

Typical Brainless-But-Fun Bond Film (by ccthemovieman-1)
This is a typical James Bond flick which means a lot of good things and some bad ones but at least, if you're a fan of the series, you get what you expect.In other words, you get outrageous action scenes, Rambo--like mentality, a wild and fun villain, a "hot" female lead helping Bond, a bunch of sexual innuendos, a hokey-but- interesting story and some outstanding opening credits.I never had any complaints with Pierce Brosnan playing Bond. I thought he very credible in the role, sincerely macho and debonair at the same time. Halle Berry was at her peak, so male viewers had no <more>
complaints watching here. She wasn't in here just for looks; she was in fighting shape, too.I enjoyed most of what I saw in this film but I am getting tired of seeing Americans portrayed as trigger-happy cowboys, something the Liberal film establishment loves to portray. It's all part of the phony, elitist attitudes they carry. In this story, Michael Rooker plays what I just mentioned. He's a good candidate for that kind of role, usually sounding kind of stupid and effective as a killer. I mean, this is the guy who played and did it well serial killer Henry Lee Lucas "Henry, Portrait Of A Serial Killer." Is the story far-fetched? Yeah, a little! Ludicrous? You bet. Entertaining? Sure. Who watches these films for their intelligence? If so, you're going to be disappointed. Read Ian Fleming's Bond novels instead and you'll be happier.If you want brainless fun with a lot of noise, boobs, eye and ear candy, then this is a good Bond movie.
Second only to Connery, Brosnan's reign as Bond is sadly coming to its end, Die Another Day being his swan song, and it's a really fun ride.A little darker than most of the Bond series, Die Another Day has everything you need in a Bond Film, and in this film they have past a few milestone's. At last they have surpassed Roger Moore's Lotus and of course Connery's Aston Martin, with the Vanquish Vanish be honest all you guys out there, who wouldn't want this car a cloaking device - how cool is that? and lets not forget Halle Berry She is just so damn sexy Seriously <more>
though this is a fine Bond movie even without the gimmicks, and it deserves its place amongst the best. Great entertainment 8/10
