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.

Welcome back Bond!
1 November 2000 | by (Honolulu,Hawaii) – See all my reviews

This movie has made up for all the recent bad Bond movies made.Brosnan changed his look for this one and leared from his mistakes in Goldeneye.Very well done with regards to action and special effects.The direction and cinematography was also splendid.The producers have also finally found a proper 90's atmosphere for Bond.This film has set the standard for the new Bond formula.Complaints about the unrealistic storyline is unfounded.Wake up nay sayers.How realistic can DR. No and Goldfinger be?Both mentioned films being considered model Bond movies.The unrealism must be eclipsed by great entertainment and innovative fim making.The Bond movies are a great vehicle for innovative action film making and given this,Tomorrow Never Dies delivers.Another annoying complaint by others is that the villain here was not menacing.Once again,in other Bond classics,the big boss is not required to be a physical specimen.Many versions of Blofeld and even Goldfinger himself were menacing in other ways.One more comlaint I did not like was that there was too much Rambo like shooting.In other classic Bond films,there are a lot of shootings galore.The difference is that in this film,the shooting scenes were more graphic and there is nothing wrong with that becouse it is time the Bond films took it to the next level in these scenes.Why should the Bond films get left behind in this area when it is the pinnacle of all action films?Yup!Brosnan was lighting it up with that rapid fire weapon and it was done the right way!James was never handled this way when he was given a weapon like that before and it was about time he was portrayed with little compromise this way.This film is not better than the best of Connery and Moore but this one rates among the best Bond films all time.I'm so happy Brosnan grew into it.I hated his weak portrayal in Goldeneye but I still knew adjustments here and there would fix it.Tomorrow Never Dies realised my desire for Brosnan's Bond.I knew he could do it this way ever since I saw him in the old Remington Steele TV series back in 1983.I knew he had to toughen up physically and get a haircut.He did both and became Bond.
