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

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the weakest entries... Dec 28 2013
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even though the introduction hints at an angrier movie, that is far from the case. The Brosnan-era Bond was riddled with innuendos and ended up a Bond of his time. Clichés as it may seem, the formula didn't work as much this time around, which has a really outlandish premise and villain. Brosnan's final Bond isn't the best, and Halle Berry, cheesy as she can be, puts a sensual and sexy touch to the character, though there was much work to do with the interaction between Bond and Jinx.

the DVD offers a nice documentary, which isn't available on blu-ray, as much as many other featurettes.

Do yourself a favor: if the price is right, the features on the second disc are worth it, but otherwise, rent it first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah Oct. 31 2012

Ah, good old James Bond. Who would not like Bond? When watching a vintage character you just have to do it in a vintage way. That is why I chose to buy this in VHS. Brosnan's last film does not disappoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 anymore Nov. 24 2006
Format:DVD
I have to admit that since the Roger Moore era (especially in "Moonraker"), James Bond ceased to be the secret agent Ian Fleming invented. But with Pierce Brosnan things have gotten out of hand. I mean, come on, he is a spy, not John McClane! The important thing is the STORY, not the special effects, which are just an element of the whole filmmaking process. It is action/adventure, not exaggerated sci-fi. Take "From Russia with Love" for example: minimum special effects, but a solid and interesting story and credible situations make it one of the best in the series. The new ones try to appeal to young people who are used to larger-than-life CGI, and they do not have character development at all (like the one we saw in 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service).

I am sad to say that the series has hit rock bottom (although "The World is not Enough" was worse), and if it is not fixed soon, it could be lost forever.

Honestly, the 'JAMES BOND WILL RETURN' line is more like a bad news now, instead of being a welcomed promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL LIFE IN BONDAGE July 15 2004
Format:DVD
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!!!
