Trivia

MGM exerted a lot of pressure on the producers to come up with a follow-up to GoldenEye (1995) that was as successful. This was mainly at the urgings of billionaire Kirk Kerkorian who had recently bought the company and wanted the release to coincide with MGM's public stock offering. See more »

Goofs

When Carver's guards initially try to break into Bond's car, they can not even dent the vehicle; however, during the chase scene immediately after, the windows on the car shatter when the guards shoot at the vehicle. Apparently the car had a "straw to break the camel's back" point, and that was it. (Or: when Bond turned off the security system in order to enter the car, it lost this protection.) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charles Robinson: Our man's in position on the center camera. It's like a terrorist supermarket. Chinese Long March Scud, Panther AS-565 attack helicopter, a pair of Russian mortars, and the crates look like American rifles. Chilean mines. German explosives. Fun for the whole family.

Bond #18: Bad news
14 March 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The first 9 minutes consist of a great opening sequence, Bond saving the world from a nuclear disaster, and that's just the little appetizer before the titles. Due to the success of "Goldeneye", the expectations for the second Bond with Pierce Brosnan were high, but - after the mentioned opening sequence - couldn't be 100% fulfilled. "Tomorrow Never Dies" gives away very early who the villain is and what he wants ("there is no news like bad news"), and after that, Bond just has lots of fights and chases, but there is neither much suspense nor unexpected twists or turns. Jonathan Pryce isn't one of the most impressive villains during the series. So the best thing about "Tomorrow Never Dies" is Michelle Yeoh who had so much more to offer than just good looks, namely her huge experience with fight scenes in countless movies; I strongly recommend "Chao ji ji hua" aka "Supercop". Some footage for "Tomorrow Never Dies" was shot in my hometown, must say it looked more like product placement for their hotel than a great location. Anyway. Not a bad Bond - an average Bond.
