Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
Tomorrow has the power!
OK, this is what i call an action movie, a great one, it has everything
you need to make your adrenaline flow. And of course it also does it
for a Bond movie, it has funny lines, clichés, gadgets, and it deliver
us a movie that is pure action and danger without losing the sense of
humour (like all Bond movies).
James Bond had always fought to the powerful, but this is the first
time, i think, that he deals to a press magnate like Elliot Carver, who
cares nothing about an informed world as he says, but to get all the
power and money that he can. In WW2, the men who took advantage of the
war were those who manufactured weapons, in the 90's, the medias gain
as much money as them, so Elliot decides to begin a war to have the
complete coverage of the deed, so our fellow agent 007 must stoop this
crazy guy from beginning a war just for economic reasons.... So, we can
say the plot is quite good and original as well, nobody can say no.
And this movie was a great follow up to the blockbuster mega hit that
was Goldeneye, Pierce Brosnan shining as the British agent, as he
always did in his 007 period. Michelle Yeoh was great too, and she
portrayed perfectly good the woman of the 90's: Independent, fighting
side by side with men, even defeating them, smart, pretty, well the
The music by Sheryl Crow is lovely and sweet, and fits great into the
atmosphere of the movie, something on what the producers of the Bond
movies always lay stress on. A good Bond movie needs a good song, and a
good car too, ja.
"The difference between craze and greatness is measured only by
success" "There's no news, like bad news" This is an example of
Carver's "philosophy" of life, funny thing to hear, you realize he is a
crazy that believes what he says....
So, if you are an action lover this movie is for you, and if you are a
Bond lover this movie will like you too.
