Director Lee Tamahori's fluid style and the relentless pace effortlessly propel this 20th James Bond adventure's intense action around the globe. From North Korea and London to Cuba and a dazzling Icelandic snow palace, the locations are inspired, even if the familiar "quash the evil megalomaniac and unmask the traitor" plotline is more preposterous than ever (invisible car, anyone?). Pierce Brosnan is on fine form (though he's let down by some poor CGI) as a betrayed and vengeful 007, combining the secret agent's usual charm and throwaway wit with true toughness and a streak of venom. Such character-broadening traits ensure that the format never feels stale, while the introduction of Halle Berry as a genuinely equal, if underdeveloped, female sidekick is a coup. There are only two "cons" to the movie and both involve Madonna - firstly, the singer's grating theme song and, secondly, her dire cameo as a fencing instructor.
James Bond is suspended from duty after being taken hostage in North Korea, but goes against orders to track down those who betrayed him. During the pursuit of the terrorist he was investigating before his capture, he discovers a connection with a British billionaire who has constructed a devastating orbital weapon. Spy adventure, starring Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Toby Stephens, Judi Dench and John Cleese.
