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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars James Bond Lives On June 13 2004
By Konrei
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars OLD BOND IN A NEW BOTTLE--SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED! June 9 2004
By s eng
Format:DVD
Pierce Brosnan returns as James Bond for the fourth and I hope--final--time in DIE ANOTHER DAY, this time with Halle Berry a token black female in this movie who's supposedly as a Bond girl but completely outacted by Rosamund Pike as double agent Miranda Frost.
The story is a mix of THUNDERBALL, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, AND DR. NO, and it's a convoluted, boring story about James Bond where Bond starts off the movie getting captured--who wants to see that???--and tortured by North Koreans--and then is taken off duty by M, Judi Dench, yet decides to suddenly work on his own.
The action is typical of the Brosnan Bond movies, long, seemingly endless car chases, lots of gadgets, loud music, and frequent attempts to bring back the Sean Connery charm with women that just don't work.
But the worst thing about DIE ANOTHER DAY is that Pierce Brosnan now looks just like any other middleaged man, and so you start feeling like you could be watching any movie, not necessarily James Bond, and that means it's time for a new James Bond, because DIE ANOTHER DAY IS OLD BOND IN A NEW BOTTLE--SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED!

3.0 out of 5 stars why, you only live twice? May 3 2004
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the weakest entries...
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. Read more

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. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 anymore
I have to admit that since the Roger Moore era (especially in "Moonraker"), James Bond ceased to be the secret agent Ian Fleming invented. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars rather surprised by how enjoyable
I have watched this several times before I wrote anything. The movie takes repeat viewing well. Frankly, Bond was, and always will be Sean Connery. But, time marches on. Read more
