In Pierce Brosnan's second James Bond adventure, 007 investigates a Ted Turner/Rupert Murdoch style news media mogul (Jonathan Pryce) who's committing terrorist attacks against the Chinese and British military, hoping to pit them against each other - because a war would be great for his TV ratings and newspaper sales. The adventure takes Bond from Hamburg to Vietnam (there's even a brief fly over past those funky rock islands last seen in "The Man With the Golden Gun"), where Hong Kong action star Michelle Yeoh drops in as a Chinese agent who helps 007 prevent World War III yet again.
Not quite as good as the preceding "Goldeneye" but a pretty damn solid Bond adventure all around.

Brosnan Excels as Hard-Edged 007
Scott T. Rivers | Los Angeles, CA USA | 08/31/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)
"A flat pre-credit sequence and by-the-numbers climax prevent "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997) from matching the overall excellence of "GoldenEye." What remains is mostly splendid - with Pierce Brosnan as an elegant yet refreshingly hard-edged James Bond. Jonathan Pryce's multimedia villainy and Michelle Yeoh's energetic presence help tremendously. However, the 007 producers made a big mistake replacing k.d. lang's dynamic theme song with Sheryl Crow's weak "official" version in the opening credits."
One of the Best Bond Movies

"Tomorrow Never Dies is one of the best Bond movies. Though I've enjoyed the later Bond movies starring Daniel Craig, I still think Pierce Brosnan was the better Bond, James Bond. Craig never seems like he's having any fun. Brosnan has the ability to show Bond enjoying himself, while still bringing a more realistic performance to a very non-realistic film genre. When Bond crashes down onto the Millennium Dome, Brosnan makes you feel Bond's pain (even if it is much less pain than a normal person would feel.) Bond teams up with Michelle Yeoh, as a Chinese secret agent, and provides an equal match for our hero. I would have loved to have seen more with that team. Jonathan Pryce is also entertaining as the main villain. His secret power is the ability to type with one hand. That's one ability I'd like to have!"
