of stopping this deviant plot. His name? Bond. James Bond.
Action Thriller - Is any further description needed beyond the simple statement that TOMORROW NEVER DIES is the eighteenth in the long-running, highly-successful James Bond movie franchise? Fans of action films in general, and 007 in
particular, will likely be pleased by this latest outing. It's got everything that's expected from this kind of picture: gadgets, cars, women,some humor, and a lot of bullets and explosions.
PROFANITY: Mild and infrequent. SEX/NUDITY: Suggestive references only. VIOLENCE: Frequent but not graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Occasional casual smoking and drinking. ACTION: Frequent and extreme. COMEDY: Occasional.
No one really wants Bond to change or evolve, at least not significantly. We attend movies like TOMORROW NEVER DIES because they offer a predictably entertaining time with a popular superhero who can save the world with one hand while holding his vodka martini (shaken, not stirred) in the other. TOMORROW NEVER DIES isn't fundamentally much different from GOLDENEYE or GOLDFINGER, for that matter. It's the same basic formula put to effective use. What separates a good Bond movie from a bad one isn't the plot -- it's the supporting cast, the intangibles, and the energy level. With only a few exceptions, TOMORROW NEVER DIES scores high marks in all three categories. Following this effort, there's no doubt that, once again, James Bond will return.
A British Naval frigate is lost inside Chinese territorial waters. In one of the most potentially explosive incidents of the late 20th century, international tensions soar. The slightest wrong move could bring devastation all over the globe.
Elliot Carver could not have planned a better way to boost ratings and secure new markets for his global satellite television network. In fact, Carver -- who prefers to create the news rather than report it -- is in possession of the vital navigational instrument that triggered the incident. And he's not giving it back. If tensions should escalate to all-out war, ratings would go through the roof. Carver's global daily paper and satellite television system would make him the ultimate media overlord for the new millennium.
Unfortunately for Carver, someone is watching. Despite all his shadowy maneuverings, only one man is capable of stopping this deviant plot and change the course of history in the name of profit and power.
