DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - Fans of action and the James Bond series won't be disappointed by this 20th installment, which delivers all of the thrills and stunts one expects. The film is a little edgier in terms of tone, violence, and sex, so parents should be warned; however, the film is still very much a PG-13, with very little bloody violence and only mild sexuality.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Excellent "The fakery goes right back to the kind we got in the '60s 007 films, with their wide-eyed suspension of disbelief. But Die Another Day gets away with it, because it's the first Bond movie in ages that isn't fake fun.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Average "If there's one thing to recognize, it's that a single bad outing will not succeed where Blofeld and dozens of other maniacs have failed. Whether played by Pierce Brosnan or someone else, James Bond will return. Let's just hope that when he does, he's the 007 we have come to love and admire, not the impostor that inhabits Die Another Day.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Die Another Day is still utterly absurd from one end to the other, of course, but in a slightly more understated way.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "Die Another Day is dead-on as entertaining eye candy, a bona fide guilty pleasure — for the first hour. But the movie loses steam and the sequences that dazzled in the beginning get overshadowed by the excesses of later scenes.''

Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
James Bond's (Pierce Brosnan) newest mission begins with a spectacular high-speed hovercraft chase through a minefield in the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea. Bond circles the world in his quest to unmask a traitor and prevent a war of catastrophic proportions. On his way he crosses paths with Jinx (Halle Berry) and Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike). Hot on the trail of deadly megalomaniac Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) and his ruthless right-hand man Zao (Rick Yune), Bond travels to Iceland into the villain's lair: a palace built entirely of ice. There he experiences firsthand the power of a new hi-tech weapon. Ultimately it all leads to an explosive confrontation - and unforgettable conclusion - back in Korea where it all started.
