Tomorrow Never Dies

by Reggie's Take

“Tomorrow Never Dies” is one of my favorite James Bond movies with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond 007.

Tomorrow Never Dies was my first ever DVD movie I bought back in 1998. Of the four movies Mr. Brosnan made as everybody’s favorite British spy, I felt it was his best. To me Brosnan seemed more relaxed in the role as 007. His relationship with “M” (Judi Dench) seemed to be more of a working relationship rather than a conversational one.

Tomorrow Never Dies to me also had some of best action sequences. The first one that comes to mind is Bond having to drive his BMW from the backseat while using his cell phone to operate it. The BMW scene in the parking garage is probably my favorite from the movie. You know as an adult the practicality of the whole scene is not possible, but at the same time the little boy in you wishes you could drive your own car in the same way. Minus having someone shooting missiles at you trying to kill you. The second is the motorcycle chase with Michelle Yeoh. The both of them having to work together while handcuff to each other in order to drive the bike. In some ways I wish they would have brought her character back in one of the other two films Brosnan did before leaving the franchise.

Tomorrow Never Dies  / Released in theaters in 1997  /  Running Time 1 hour 57 minutes  /
