Trivia

Michael G. Wilson: As General Chandler, this is Wilson's first credited cameo performance in a Bond film. He can also be seen in an uncredited cameo as a man leaning against a car in Cuba. Wilson has made an uncredited cameo in every EON Productions Bond movie since The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), as well as an early one in Goldfinger (1964). His first screen credit for acting though, was not for this movie, but for All the Way Home (1971). See more »

Goofs

When Bond and his buddies surf out of the sea onto land and pushes the head covering back, you notice his hair is soaking wet, which would be correct if he's wearing a wet suit, a few seconds later when they go to "meet" the landing helicopter and unzip their suits, they're fully dressed and dry underneath- this would be correct if they were wearing dry suits, but his hair wouldn't be wet if he was wearing this kind of suit.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits play over scenes directly related to the plot of the film (in this case, the torture of 007). This is a first for a Bond film. Also, footage from this sequence later appears as a brief flashback - something only seen in the series twice before (OHMSS and Moonraker). See more »

Alternate Versions

For the theatrical release, seven seconds were cut from the Jinx/Bond sex scene to secure a PG-13 rating in the US; this version was released on home video. All video versions released in or after 2006 are uncut. The main difference between the two is that Jinx moans loudly in the uncut version. See more »

Pierce Brosnan Is Shaken, but Not Stirred
24 December 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

"When his top-secret mission is sabotaged, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) finds himself captured by the enemy, abandoned by MI6, and stripped of his 00-license. Determined to get revenge, Bond goes head-to-head with a sultry spy (Halle Berry), a frosty agent (Rosamund Pike), and a shadowy billionaire (Toby Stephens) whose business is diamonds… but whose secret is a diabolical weapon that could bring the world to its knees!" according to the DVD sleeve description.

Here comes a long, bombastic Bond film!

The formula is turned up to the hilt, but without (or at the expensive of) any real substantive plot intrigue. Notable as Mr. Brosnan's last in a run of four appearances as the Cold War-created spy; there were some comments about Brosnan's age being a factor in his vacating the role, but he certainly looks fit to be tied herein. Adding to the box office lure is (then) recent "Academy Award" winner Halle Berry (as Giacinta "Jinx" Johnson). Toby Stephens (as "Gustav Graves") is fine as the main villain. Titular song singer Madonna (as Verity) has a cameo that would have been funnier done by Richard Simmons.
