Die Another Day (2002)
Die Another Day should have put out of its misery
I was very excited when "Die Another Day" was released, after the miserable "The World Is Not Enough" put doubt in my mind whether the series should continue. After watching the main title sequences, I thought that "Die Another Day" was going to be one of the best Bonds every; I was thoroughly disappointed. I could not tell whether it was homage to the previous Bond movies or a made for TV pilot for a Halle Berry spy series. The story is an amalgam of every spy movie in the last 40 years, it is so convoluted, and fantastic it will baffle the most ardent Bond watcher. It even rips off "The Outer Limits". There is an incredible amount of hardware and technology in this movie and after you find out the sinister plot by the villain, not the producers, you will shrug your shoulders in disbelief. The acting is non-existent, even for a Bond movie, and the sexual innuendos are surprisingly taken to a new low. The only real bright spot in the movie is Rosamund Pike's portrayal of Miranda Frost. Halle Berry's performance in this movie is only bettered by her acting in "Swordfish".
The problem with this movie is that it just tried to do excessively much. It seems to me that the amount of technology in a Bond film is inversely proportionally to the quality of the film.
Also, I am not really sure Pierce Bronsan is really right for the Bond job.
