Most definitely the worst ‘official’ James Bond film I have ever seen (haven’t seen ‘The World Is Not Enough’, ‘Quantum of Solace’ or ‘Spectre’ yet) but still has its moments, and like The Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd, even the bad stuff is better than 80% of the other stuff out there. Still I wish it wasn’t Brosnan’s last one–and though Craig was truly a refreshing change in his realistic tone that hearkened back to the great days of Connery, that too got old, even for the actor himself.
Sigh Another Way.
Die Another Day is directed by Lee Tamahori and written by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade. It stars Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Toby Stephens, Rick Yune, Rosamund Pike, John Cleese, Judi Dench and Michael Madsen. Music is scored by David Arnold and cinematography by David Tattersall.
Bond 20 and 007 is captured and tortured by the North Koreans after being betrayed by an MI6 mole. After being exchanged for a deadly enemy operative, Bond has his 007 status revoked and is forced to go rogue to find who the mole is.
As the Bond franchise celebrated 40 years of being, the film to mark the occasion, ironically, forgot the subtle ingredients that make up the best Bond movies. What we get is a chaotic movie, excess is the order of the day, with Eon allowing Tamahori to stack up scene after scene of video game standard ideas. There is no lack of effort here, the heart is full of good intentions, but some big cheese in a suit should have reined the director in. It’s also a sad day in the Bond universe when a Bond film uses homage’s to homage itself, only for that idea to tire itself out as well. There is barely any time for reflective silences, for a show of character depth, on the odd occasion the film slows down, gasping for air, Tamahori rushes into the next bit of noise annoys. While the action is often as laughable as the dialogue. This may have made a pot load of cash, but few serious Bond fans would have returned to see this again at the cinema. It’s Bond for the non Bond fans, a lazy popcorn no brain for the gamers who just want crash, bang and wallop with no substance. Ssshh, did someone say Batman & Robin?
As the film unfolds in a blur of sledgehammer editing and lack of restraint, not to forget CGI that is shameful, the cast struggle to keep the good ship Bond afloat. Brosnan is on smug auto-pilot, this film proving to be a sad farewell for him from a role he had previously graced with some distinction. Berry is gorgeous but looks awkward with the action scenes and can’t carry off the chirpy aspects of the script, though in her defence she’s not done any favours by the writers and Tamahori is more concerned with showcasing her twin assets. Pike is OK, sexy and feisty, if a little difficult to accept as a MI6 agent. Stephens, who went on to do very good acting work later in his career, hams it up for all he is worth. Meant to be a shadow characterisation of Bond, Stephens plays Gustav Graves as some posh cartoon character from a Brit sit-com, a world away from the much needed dastard villain opposing Bond. His motives unclear and a victim of one of the film’s more berserker twists. Yune is fun with his diamond studded face and old pros Cleese and Dench at least come out of it with reputations still intact. While Madsen is criminally underused.
Elsewhere on a technical front there’s also not much to shout about. Madonna’s title song, the worst in the series by far, is only beaten in awfulness by her cameo in the film. Tattersall’s photography barely registers above the ordinary, with sub-standard location filming not helping either, and Arnold’s score is about as far removed from Bond flavours as it can get. There are some good scenes within, a machismo pumped sword fight between Bond and Graves and a laser beam (hello Goldfinger my old friend) dodging fist fight stand tall above the messy quagmire, but the memory of the good sequences are quickly vanquished once the “invisible car” is put to field duty use! And with that there really is no more to say about the “quality” of Die Another Day. For Bond fans it’s about a 5/10 movie, for casual blockbuster fans after a cheap thrill it will no doubt score higher.
The Power Of The Sun Itself
Pierce Brosnan’s last outing as James Bond takes place in Die Another Day which finds 007 trying to stop a rogue North Korean general from starting the Korean War all over again with the attending consequences. The North Koreans must have been watching Plan 9 From Outer Space because the gimmick they’ve come up with sounds remarkably like what those aliens were warning the Earth against developing.
The power of the sun itself is brought into play here. There’s a giant mirror in space which seeks to focus and concentrate the sun’s energy for peaceful power purposes. But it sure can be an effective weapon of war as we see towards the film’s end as Brosnan and his American counterpart agent Halle Berry.
Part of the charm of the James Bond series is that you don’t take it too seriously, but there are times that it becomes more like Indiana Jones and his narrow escapes than a modern espionage story. Die Another Day takes this point to the extreme.
The year before Halle Berry won her Oscar for Monster’s Ball and Die Another Day was her next film. Of course she’s forever in the record books as the first black woman to win a Best Actress Oscar. But that’s for history. I wonder if film fans remember her better as a Bond girl.
There’s another Bond girl as well, another MI6 agent played by Rosamund Pike. She’s one deadly female and most resourceful. Toby Stephens, son of Maggie Smith plays a wealthy industrialist with a mysterious past and a cunning adversary for Pierce Brosnan.
One thing I really liked towards the end was Ms. Moneypenny fulfilling her fantasy with James Bond. She’s engaged in an early version of the Star Trek holograph deck. The poor woman has been carrying a torch for 007 for almost 50 years now, you’d think one of the Bonds would have given her a tumble already. Poor lovelorn Lois Maxwell now Samantha Bond ain’t that ironic casting.
Die Another Day is not as good as some of the other Brosnan entries in the Bond series, but should satisfy the cult of fans out there.
