Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

For the first hour or so, this 18th James Bond movie is up there with the best of them: it has terrific pace, Pierce Brosnan's 007 has romantic and rough-house appeal, Michelle Yeoh's Chinese agent is more than a match for him in the action stakes, and the story has grip and even plausibility. Sadly, the second half doesn't quite sustain the momentum, while Jonathan Pryce's media mogul (whose motto is "There's no news like bad news") proves to be an unthreatening villain. Flaws aside, this was at the time the best Bond movie since the heyday of Connery.
