Product Description

Die Another Day (Widescreen Special Edition)

Special Features

James Bond DVDs have in general been pretty loaded, but Die Another Day raises the bar with a two-disc set featuring dynamic DTS 6.1 ES and Dolby Digital 5.1 EX sound that makes good use of the rear speakers. The first commentary track is by Pierce Brosnan and Rosamund Pike (who plays villain Miranda Frost). They weren't together at the time, so their comments are spliced into one track. Brosnan has a good time watching and is proud of the film but also doesn't take himself too seriously ("They don't teach you this stuff at drama school: 'OK, now you're going to be electrocuted by the bad guy.'"). Self-proclaimed "Bond novice" Pike also is proud of the film and says she's annoyed by people who question whether there's still a need for Bond. On the second commentary track, director Lee Tamahori and producer Michael G. Wilson chat about topics as diverse as casting, Bond lore, and product placements. For more Bond lore, don't overlook the trivia track, which offers pop-up tidbits about the filming and tips on the inside jokes.

The centerpiece of the second disc is the 80-minute "Inside Die Another Day" documentary, which is a set of featurettes strung together. Topics include the opening surfing sequence; the scenes set in North Korea and Cuba (including Halle Berry's bikini tribute to Ursula Andress); the ice palace; post-production elements such as computer graphics, editing, and music; the car battle (finding strong ice was the key safety issue); and the passing of the "Q" torch from Desmond Llewellyn to John Cleese. --David Horiuchi

Who would have dreamed in 1963 that Dr. No would be the first of twenty James Bond films? There have been some misses in those 20 films (Moonraker, Octopussy, to name two), but overall the series has aged quite well, and moves into the 21st century quite adroitly.
While ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE remains my favorite Bond film, Pierce Brosnan has done well in his Bond role. He's dashing but vulnerable, and he is a good actor. He's joined in this technological brouhaha by the talented Halle Berry. While this is certainly not Halle's best performance, she shows the versatility and dedication that eventually led to her Oscar win in MONSTER'S BALL. She's a beautiful woman and she holds her own in the fight game too! Rosamund Pike is delightful as Ms. Frost, the double agent who battles Halle in the climax. Toby Stephens does a good job as Graves, but he's not the most memorable of the Bond villains. The action sequences and effects are stunning, except for the obvious blue screen used when Bond escapes from the supercar. And the laser in the sky threat has been used twice before in Bond movies: You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever. John Cleese is cool as Q; Madonna is silly in her cameo, and DIE ANOTHER DAY is one of the worst themes of any Bond movie. No one will ever replace John Barry as the master of the Bond themes. And it wouldn't hurt to see Judi Dench soften a little in her role as M. Nice touch in having B movie actor Michael Masden as the American NSA chief.
All in all, a worthy entry in the Bond series; if Brosnan and crew can keep up this kind of pace, we may see Bond hit 50!!!

DIE ANOTHER DAY is a Bond movie in which everybody tried hard to come up with something special. The predictable result of all that striving was, of course, that DIE ANOTHER DAY is mostly ordinary Bond du jour.
This, the 20th in the Bond series and the 40th anniversary Bond film, was consciously crafted to be a "supermovie," and it is--in spots. Hard-core Bond fans will appreciate all the nods and winks to the earlier films. Halle Berry's sudden appearance on a beach in Cuba complete with diver's knife, is pure DR. NO. And again, Berry being strapped to a laser table to be cut in half is straight out of GOLDFINGER. A diamond-powered spacecraft is the legacy of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER. Bond plays idly with his THUNDERBALL jet-pak in Q's laboratory, and so on. Taken all together these scenes form a kind of retrospective melange that is fun to watch. How many can you identify...?
The movie begins on an interesting but unusual note: Bond is captured and tortured by the North Koreans. After more than a year a dirty, long haired, battered Bond is released in a prisoner exchange. Kept in an isolation chamber by MI-6, he is stripped of his 00 number. Managing a quick escape he begins to hunt for whoever betrayed him.
His travels lead him to Jinx (Berry), an American NSA agent who is also hunting the turncoat. Together with fellow agent Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike), they target the bizarre billionaire Gustav Graves (Toby Stevens) whose right-hand man turns out to be Zhao (Rick Yune) the man Bond was exchanged for.
The usual gadgets make their appearance. Best of all is an invisible Astin-Martin Vanquish, which, when visible, is easily the most-lethal looking car Bond has ever driven.
Brosnan once again reprises the Conneryesque "dark Bond" of DR.

the director of die another day said he wanted to go back to the bond of you only live twice.
why?
that film was, rightly, the film that prompted connery to leave the franchise.
it was the beginning of style over substance. decor over plot.
slickness in place of grit.
well, whatever, tamahori got just what he wanted and we got yet another empty headed bond opus.
the only decent bond with brosnan has been goldeneye and even it was a little thin on plot.
as for borsnan himself;
way over rated.
oh, he fits the bill okay, but lacks any originality whatsover.
i dare to say that actually, connery, moore and dalton were all far more original. connery gave us edge with style.
moore refused to take it seriousely and gave us satire (and did it well for a while). dalton gave us an abundance of edge. actually, he gave us a lethal dose and his bond is more 'cop' than any bond.
but brosnan simply mixes the previous three. he does have some edge, he does have some satire, and a times, he has the leanness of dalton.
but he has nothing of his own.
whats good about this then?
the whole diamonds and ice thing works well and for the first time in a long time we have a really cool bond theme song ( but the singer of that song unfortunately makes an awful cameo).
hopefully, the new prodcers will someday allow the franchise to take some new, edy directions.
if not, it will in time, inevitably, die another day, but die it will.

The 20th James Bond movie. The character of James Bond has literally carried a licence to thrill and kill for 40 years in the making to unquestionably the most powerful, sexiest, and most thrilling 007 film adventure yet. Under Lee Tamahori's (MULHOLLAND FALLS and ALONG CAME A SPIDER) direction, a costly Michael G. Wilson/Barbara Broccoli production, and a clever Neal Purvis/Robert Wade screenplay, DIE ANOTHER DAY combines such classic characters and motifs into a modern twist. Pierce Brosnan is cold as ice in his performance of James Bond. Appropriately so due to the setting of the imminent showdown taking place in the Ice Palace. There's also Halle Berry as Jinx - tough, gorgeous, sexy, and determined. The charisma between Pierce and Halle is wonderful. Despite Halle Berry's obvious homage to Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder emergencing from the sea in bikini and hunting knife in DR. NO, there are indeed references to all of the previous 19 films - see of you can catch them all!
Also included is an outstanding supporting cast with Toby Stephens, Rosamund Pike, Rick Yune, Michael Madsen as CIA heavy Damian Falco, and the returning roles of Colin Salmon as Charles Robinson, Samantha Bond as Miss Moneypenny, Judi Dench as M, and now a delightful John Cleese in the role of Q. This was an obligatory choice due to Cleese portraying the assistant R in THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH. Therefore R is the new Q. In addition to the tributes to all of the earlier Bonds, stunning locations around the globe, a thrilling David Arnold score, the special effects are incredible and echo the vein of 2002's other blockbusters; LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS, STAR WARS: EPISODE 2 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES and many others.
