Trivia

The film was originally going to be called "Tomorrow Never Lies". There are video tapes, that were in distribution when the film was released on video cassette, that have the caption "Tomorrow Never Lies" at the beginning of the tape, not the beginning of the movie. See more »

Goofs

At the party scene, a Porsche Boxster arrives just before Bond, the license plate reads "BYL", which is only issued to cars belonging to the Bavarian parliament - they surely have no Porsche in their fleet. 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.

Alternate Versions

Originally toned down for a 12 cinema certificate in the UK, a further 6 seconds of cuts were required to retain this rating for the video version. All use of shurikens (throwing stars) and a bad guy having his face stamped on were removed, and most of the fight sound effects were reduced. In 2006 the PG-13/international version was passed uncut in the UK by the BBFC for the Ultimate Edition DVD, with an upgrade from a 12 to a 15 certificate. The same cut was later passed 12 for the Blu-ray release. See more »

Absolutely NO style at all
15 June 2000 | by john-597See all my reviews

This, the second Bond film to star Pierce Brosnan, is where the Lethal Weapon-style excess really gets out of hand. Obviously in updating Bond for the '90s they forgot about Bond's Martini-swilling, licence-to-kill persona and all we're left with is some Schwarzenegger-type mercilessly machine-gunning his foes. I hear critics and Bond purists echoing the chorus of "best Bond since Connery" everywhere I look but "Tomorrow Never Dies" bears absolutely no relation to those great films. The plot is lifted directly from "The Spy Who Loved Me" and, let's face it, Wai Lin was a joke, because Bond girls are not meant to be kung fu'sters who can overshadow the great 007. Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce) is not a classic example of a main villain (Randolph Hearst wreaking world havoc?). The only things I liked about this film were Bond's BMW and Dr. Kaufmann (Vincent Schiavelli). Thankfully, the producers put the style back into Bond in his latest film, "The World Is Not Enough".
