Film Review - Tomorrow Never Dies
Time for more Bondage! Pierce Brosnan is back as the over-excited, undercover secret agent.
This time, our guest formula villain is Jonathan Pryce as a Rupert Murdock/Bill Gates madman who wants to start World War III because it will sell a lot of papers.
Bond, that Cunning Linguist, cuts short the boffing of his Danish teacher to destroy more British Secret Service equipment, and go Boff the wife of the villain, who happens to be someone he used to Boff a long time ago. And they say you can't go home!
Along comes Michelle Yeoh as Jackie Chan in an evening gown. Yeoh is the top actress/stuntwoman in Hong Kong. In Tomorrow Never Dies Yeoh plays Bond's counterpart from the People's Republic of China. These two work together to thwart Pryce's war, destroy more equipment, and have a Boff as the film ends.
Pay no attention to those emotions hiding behind the curtain!
There is a moment here where we see a side of Bond we haven't seen in over 15 years: His pain of closeness, and the pain of losing someone close. That hasn't surfaced since we saw Bond visit his wife's grave many flicks back. I'm glad to see in Brosnan's modernization of 007 that he has brought that pain to the role. But don't get me wrong, that isn't going to keep Bond from boffing three different women in this film. Now if we could just have a Boff-Off between James Bond and James T. Kirk!
All I could have done without in this film is Sheryl Crow's horrible singing of the title song! My God, couldn't they have gotten Bond to boff her or something?
