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.

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.

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.

First off, I'm not a die hard Bond fan. I dont memorize every single line in the movies, or own the entire series on DVD. Nor am I a complete non Bond fan who says, "M who?" I'm in the middle of the fan world.
I was very curious to see how Bonds 20th adventure would turn out. So we got the DVD, popped it in, and watched the film. It was good, but I have serious gripes about the first half of the film.
First off, the first half of the movie is quite dissapointing for me. Bond infiltrates North Korea to do...well...uh...stop some evil rich kid from getting diamonds...I think. Then of course, things go wrong and he defeats approximatly 140 million bad guys with exposions, mines, flame throwers, and machine guns going off like mad, and of course he gets through it withought a scratch. Then things go terriably wrong, and he is in a sense, betrayed by his agency. Then he decides to go on a quest for revenge.
During his quest, Bond travels to exotic locales, such as North Korea, Hong Kong, Cuba, Spain, Britan, and Iceland. However, his trips to the first 5 places are quite boring (Aside from Korea). Yes, there are guns, explosions, and semi-naked women, but they just dont feel right. The lab fight in Cuba seems kind of put on, and is there just to fill time. Liekwise, the sword fight in Britan seems to go on for...ev....er.
However, the 2nd act of the movie (Which begins when Bond heads to Iceland) really makes up for the rest of the film. Here, the action sequences dont feel tackled on, and are exciting to watch. The car chase is really cool, along with the Uber-ray of death.(Really cool).

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.
P.S. The song by Madonna is one of the bright spots of the movie.

its a notch better then Tomorrow NEver Dies non the less and I liked it throughout and its fun, purely fun and for Bond fans. ok, lets say if Sean Connery played Bond for all 20 films, like Bond would be like the same age as Connery. good concept and it would be funny to of seen that happen. anyway, at the beginning of this one Bond gets captured and tortured and then he is traded with some dude that has diamonds stuck up into his face. Bond meets Jinx(Halle Berry, wow!!!) and they team up to go aginast the evil Toby Stephens and his woman Rosamund Pike(wow also!!!). Judi Dench and John Cleese reprise their roles as well as M and Cleese went from R to Q because Desmond Llwellyn the old Q died after making The World Is Not Enough(and I liked the old Q too). Madonna does the cover song and also has a cameo as well. the ice palace at the end is grand, though who would wanna live in that place.

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!!!
