When back in his world, Bond sets off to track down Zao. Bond gets caught up in yet another scheme which sends him to millionaire Gustav Graves. Another MI6 agent known as Miranda Frost is also posing as a friend of Graves. Bond is invited to a presentation held by Graves about a satellite found in space which can project a huge laser beam. Bond must stop this madman with a fellow American agent, known as Jinx. Whilst Bond tries to stop Graves and Zao, will he finally reveal who betrayed him? Written by simon

Trivia

The last Bond film (as of 2012) to use the famous "gun barrel" sequence before a pre-titles sequence as usual. In Quantum of Solace (2008) and Skyfall (2012), the sequence was placed at the end of those films (a radically different version of the sequence was used at the end of the pre-titles scene in Casino Royale (2006)). However, the beginning gunbarrel sequence was brought back for Spectre (2015) See more »

Goofs

When Bond leaps through the window at the clinic he takes a grape from the fruit bowl. When he goes through the door of the room he can be seen chewing and then putting another grape in his mouth and eating that one. However he only picked up one grape and therefore can't have been eating anything originally, despite his mouth moving. See more »

Moneypenny finally gets her first hot kiss after exactly 40 years!

After being captured, imprisoned and tortured in North Korea for 14 months, Bond (Pierce Brosnon) is released in exchange for a recently captured Zao… Unfortunately, MI6 and the American NSA believe the mission was compromised… They think their super agent has cracked under torture… So Bond's license to kill is rescinded along with his freedom by M (Judi Dench) and is ordered to be send to an evaluation center in the Falklands…

Determined to clear his name and find out who really betrayed him in North Korea, Bond soon escapes and tracks Zao to Cuba, who was undergoing a 'D.N.A. transplant,' in a strange clinic, to heal his ravaged face… There, he finds someone else after the Korean, a capable secret agent, called Jinx...

After having proved himself to MI6 and to the NSA, Bond returns to London and has a spirited fencing match with Graves at the Blades Club… There he meets his publicist the gorgeous Miranda Frost…

In "Die Another Day," Brosnon is wild, and ready to light the fuse on any explosive situation… His methods are to provoke and confront… His Aston Martin is loaded with high tech gadgetry that renders his vehicle invisible to Zao's sporty Jaguar… There's an amazing chase between the two across the frozen waters of Iceland… There's also an interesting battle inside Graves' treacherous fortress; and two battles to the death aboard Graves' airplane …

Halle Berry is one of the Bond girls who looks so stunning especially when she emerged from the Cuban waters in her bright orange bikini… This Oscar-winning beauty matches 007 in intelligence, sophistication and toughness, leaving Bond in the island in an explosive situation…

Toby Stephens as the psycho billionaire Gustav Graves appears determined to use his unique satellite the Icarus using its power to 'bring light and warmth to the darkest parts of the world… or to clear the minefield creating a highway for his North Korean's troops… Rosamund Pile plays the fencing master with breathless beauty Miranda Frost…

Rick Yune plays Zao, the dangerous Korean arms dealer and sports-car aficionado who works for Colonel Moon (Will Yun Lee), the renegade North Korean army officer who was determined to invade the south…

Michael Madsen plays Damian Falco, NSA spy master and Jinx's boss who's tough on Bond…

The comical British character actor John Cleese takes over the role of Q...

Madonna was hired to record the title tune and appeared in a cameo role as a fencing instructor…

"Die Another Day" is the 20th in the series, and is arguably a fun movie to watch delivering a great sword fight… so don't miss it!
