6-out-of-5. Highlights: uhm, the whole roller coaster. Handcuffed w/Michelle Yeoh on a BMW motorcycle. The song at the end they maybe shoulda used at the beginning.
Amazing action/spy film.

Michelle Yeoh is a joy to behold in action. Terri Hatcher has a rather sad role, and Jonathan Pryce (BRAZIL) inspires contempt for his character. Disc features two commentaries with four participants.

"Never" thought I'd say this about a Bond film, but...
What a piece of garbage; from beginning to end.
Produced by a woman and funded by Chinese money, it shows.
The "Bond parts" are still good, but aside from the utter stupidity of the script (again, from beginning to end) and the perfunctory bad guy assassin that has to be killed 5,432, 678 times in the movie (before leaving), here are some of the notable tells:
>'M' is a woman.
>Moneypenny is WAY too good looking & $exy, and much too much of a smarta$$, always one-upping Bond with some quip.
>Other women in the film are also always one-upping a male with some quip.
>Bond's "equal" in the film, is a woman.
>The good guys are the Chinese. (And catch all the little propaganda lines in the film that say how great they are. e.g. "They have the biggest air force in the world!" Please.)
The one thing they did get right, was making the Head Villain a (very) thinly veiled Steve Jobs.
This is Broccoli's daughter's 2nd outing as Producer (Goldeneye being 1st), and the first since he passed away. It shows... That's when Bond started changing, and has declined ever since. Just becoming "super sensitive" & vulnerable wasn't good enough (though I do like Craig as Bond); now, @ 2018, they're talking about making Bond a woman... LOL!

Solid James bond installment. My kids liked it.

The hero of this film is Bond's 1998 BMW 750. Q issues Bond a new cellphone with a built-in remote control for his BMW. This control is analogous to BMW's intelligent key fob for their 2016 European BMW 7 Series. But Q's custom remote control does more. It allows Bond to remotely operate his BMW and all of its accessories. This BMW 750 and its special effects team earn a solid 5.0 stars.

Since the plot of the rest of the film is so implausible, I would rate "Tomorrow Never Dies" at no more than 3.50 stars.

Brosnan returns as Bond in this second film from his time as the character. A media tycoon trying to manipulate nations into a war is the primary villain, and Bond must work with a Chinese spy to prevent war. The story moves along fairly well. Jonathan Pryce chews the scenery as the tycoon, backed up by some good henchmen. His wife and Bond's former lover, played by Teri Hatcher, somewhat hurts the way the film plays out (I don't particularly care for her as an actor), but she's not around that long. Brosnan has fun with the role, and Michelle Yeoh, as his Chinese counterpart, is a formidable and fierce fighter, a good match for Bond.
