Chicago Sun-Times
A splendid comic thriller, exciting and graceful, endlessly inventive.

San Francisco Chronicle
A thoroughly satisfying, completely entertaining film that's also, rather surprisingly, an emotionally full experience.

USA Today
Fans will appreciate not only that the film is predictably solid and surprisingly sharp but that parts of it are just plain bad.

New York Daily News
That's what Bond is all about -- dazzle, some really bad puns and the kind of sexy fun that satisfies high-school urges while masquerading in tux and tails.

There's the script -- and that's the problem.

You can't beat a Bond film for adventure on a grand scale.

New York Post
Comes closer to what a Bond movie should be and once was.
63
Spoofing James Bond in the '90s may lack an original comic bite, but making James Bond in the '90s is positively toothless.

This 19th Bond installment is passable, but only just.
50
Entertainment Weekly
The hero himself has been denatured for a young, late 1990s audience with little appreciation for real suavity or sex play.

If you're desperate for a James Bond fix, skip the movie and blow your 007 bucks on a copy of the soundtrack.
