    A fantastic addition to the James Bond series - easily one of the best ones every made. It's quick, clever, graceful, and ingenious. Pierce Brosnan makes a perfect Bond once again. Sophie Marceau takes a terrific turn as Elektra, the oil heiress that Bond must protect. Robert Carlyle expertly plays the villain Renard. Denise Richards is not entirely believable as nuclear physicist A fantastic addition to the James Bond series - easily one of the best ones every made. It's quick, clever, graceful, and ingenious. Pierce Brosnan makes a perfect Bond once again. Sophie Marceau takes a terrific turn as Elektra, the oil heiress that Bond must protect. Robert Carlyle expertly plays the villain Renard. Denise Richards is not entirely believable as nuclear physicist Christmas Jones, but she does her best with the material she is given. Great action sequences help bring the film to excellence. Expand

    Not a bad movie, but compared to Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day, somewhat dissapointing. Tries for a more ambitious story involving old friends and M being some sort of Godmother, but faulty writing and scripting causes a plot that doesn't flow very well and is sometimes hard to follow. The action ain't all that exciting in this installment, although the boat chase and Not a bad movie, but compared to Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day, somewhat dissapointing.

The action ain't all that exciting in this installment, although the boat chase and parahawk chase show creativity. Sophie Marceau's gorgeous presence is more than welcome, far outdoing Denise Richards. Expand

    This, Brosnan's 3rd Bond film, is one of the best ones I've seen. The opening sequence is very entertaining. The plot is a little hard to follow the first time you watch it, but the second time, you'll be begging for more Bond! With wonderful acting, a super hero-like villain, beautiful Bond girls, wonderful action scenes, and a great script, this movie leaves you wondering This, Brosnan's 3rd Bond film, is one of the best ones I've seen.

    Pierce Brosnan does a great job at bringing the emotional side of Bond to this picture and the story is inventive and interesting, even if it is at times way over the top, but that is what I want in a movie. The villains in the film are interesting and the acting is great in this film (except for one Denise Richards, who is sometimes okay, but she has her bad moments).

    If you're desperate for a James Bond fix, skip the movie and blow your 007 bucks on a copy of the soundtrack.
  2. This keeps one reasonably amused, titillated, and brain-dead for a little over two hours.
  3. The hero himself has been denatured for a young, late 1990s audience with little appreciation for real suavity or sex play.
