Overview

Featuring an anamorphic 2.35:1 digital transfer and Dolby Digital Sound, this DVD version of Tomorrow Never Dies includes two audio commentaries, a storyboard overlay feature, a James Bond history featurette, a music video, a digital effects reel, trailers, a music-only track, and an interview with composer David Arnold. An overall impressive package, the wealth of supplements is both a blessing and a curse. The two feature-length commentaries are scene-specific, the track with Roger Spottiswoode representing the outsider's view and the Michael G. Wilson and Vic Armstong track placing everything in Bond context. Unfortunately, neither track has quite enough energy to sustain a thorough listen. The storyboard overlay feature is unique to this title in the series, and if not necessarily insightful is at least a neat gimmick for displaying the action sequence storyboards. The "Secrets of 007" series is taken from a television broadcast and is mostly fluff, while the Sheryl Crow music video is mostly forgettable. The other substantive supplement of note is the digital effects reel, running without narration, but nonetheless showing how crucial digital effects have become to the making of action films. MGM would eventually hone and refine their presentation of the Bond DVDs in the subsequent releases, but this original release still deserves a nod as the disc that got studios thinking seriously about supplements.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
This 18th James Bond film returns the character to his usual behavior following the more politically correct Goldeneye. The double-entendres and smarmy sexual innuendos are back, as is Pierce Brosnan, this time battling a crazed media mogul (Jonathan Pryce) intent on starting a war between England and China so he can cover it on his global satellite network. Michelle Yeoh scores points as a beautiful Chinese agent, Pryce is wonderfully nutty, and the stunts are a lot of fun. This entry should please Bond fans who enjoy the campier films in the series (The Man With the Golden Gun, for example) more than those looking for high tension, as Roger Spottiswoode directs with tongue firmly in cheek.

''TOMORROW NEVER DIES'' IS PROBABLY THE BEST BOND FLICK SINCE ''THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS''. PIERCE BROSNAN BRINGS THE SCREEN ALIVE WITH AN AWSOME PRE-CREDITS ACTION SCENE IN WHICH HE SUCCESFULLY STEALS A MIG, LOADED WITH NUCLEAR WARHEADS, RIGHT OUT FROM UNDER THE NOSES OF A GROUP OF HIGHLY ARMED TERRERIST'S, JUST BEFORE A BRITISH MISSIAL STRIKES THE EREA THAT BOND JUST LEFT! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!! YOU'VE GOTTA SEE IT TO BELEIVE IT!!!
