Wai Lin's outfit becomes less revealing as she and Bond fall down the side of the skyscraper. See more »
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.

The second Bond film of the Brosnan era is nothing compared to the first.
The film as a tremendous look and feel about it, more so than any other Bond film. However, looks are very deceiving. Jonathan Pryce looks the part of a Bond villain, but does not pull it off. Teri Hatcher looks the part of a Bond girl, but is lifeless and boring. Michelle Yeoh breaths some life into the movie, but is ultimately unappealing.
Overall, a fairly interesting story is destroyed by poor writing and uninspired casting choices.
