TOMORROW NEVER DIES
|PROFANITY: (View Profanity)|
There are 10 profanities spoken.
|SEX & NUDITY:|
No overt sex or nudity. There are a couple of post-sex scenes, but the act is already completed. In one scene, a man and woman are shown lying in bed together. Both are meant to be nude, but the sensitive parts of their bodies are hidden from the camera. There are a couple of instances in which a woman's bare back is shown. In another scene, a woman is shown wearing a wet, clinging tee-shirt, but she clearly has a bra on underneath.
The film contains almost wall-to-wall violence. None of it is graphic (almost no blood is shown), but thousands of bullets are fired and dozens of people are killed (many off-screen). There are also several hand-to-hand combat sequences, with a lot of punching and kicking. One individual is harpooned to death. Another is crushed (this is one of the few instances in which we see blood). Many people are blown up in various spectacular explosions.
|DRUGS & ALCOHOL:|
Occasional smoking and drinking. Bond, of course, must have at least one vodka martini, shaken not stirred. Most of the smoking and drinking occurs in swank party situations.
There are numerous action sequences: the "prologue" sequence, with an airplane dogfight; a chase/fight in a printing press room; a lengthy car chase; a lengthy motor cycle chase; an underwater scene; and a climax that features bullets, explosions, and tension. The film takes a little time for
character development and plot exposition, but its main focus is frequent, energetic action.
Most of the humor is in the form of one-liners. Although Bond gets the lion's share of the quips, the two best comments come from supporting characters.
Most of the special effects are in the nature of explosions, car crashes, and other forms of "real life" destruction. A car is shown to drive itself. There is also some miniature work when missiles strike targets and a ship sinks. On another occasion, a missile is shown in flight, soaring towards a target. The plane battle in the pre-credits prologue is probably the most
complex effects sequence in the movie. Overall, however, while there are some visual effects in the movie, the focus is on explosions and stunt work.
