Pierce Brosnan makes his fourth appearance as suave super-spy James Bond in this espionage thriller, the 20th film in the official Bond series. While on assignment in North Korea, Bond is captured by government agents, where he's imprisoned and tortured for over a year. When Bond finally wins his freedom, not everyone is certain 007 is still capable of doing the job, but after Zao (Rick Yune), the North Korean operative who snared Bond, is discovered to be in cahoots with unscrupulous entrepreneur Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens), Bond is back on the case, and he finds the two men have… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The problem for me is that the story is so entirely at the service of the special effects."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"That this Bond will be smarter is clear from its title sequence, which leaves you both shaken and stirred."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"No one's going to accuse DIE ANOTHER DAY of being a sophisticated spy movie. It's an over-the-top action movie that is to be enjoyed best with a big bucket of popcorn."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
"An old Bond for a new century, in which 50-year-old Brosnan, just starting to show his age, has to share time with an amazing glut of awful CGI."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Bond has lost his charm and there seems little chance for amelioration."
‑ Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com
"What makes this the best Bond in years is the surefootedness of Brosnan's performance, as well as Tamahori's fanboy insistence on covering all bases."
‑ , Time Out
"The film is so fraught with explosions and chases that the action eventually feels numbing."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Face it, Die Another Day simply blows the competition away. If you want excitement, laughs and pure sex appeal, remember one thing: Bond's really do have more fun."
‑ , Total Film
"There was absolutely no choice but to dial it down afterward but not because "Die Another Day" is an abomination of which to be ashamed. Alongside "You Only Live Twice," it's Bond at his most aggressively outlandish and shamelessly entertaining."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"Bond flick pushes the PG-13 limits."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"I expect more from Bond, so thumbs down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A bit like watching a champion fighter win a title bout on points rather than a satisfying knockout."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"An attractive cast, silly gadgets, bad puns, worse CGI and a totally ludicrous plot make this the least of the Brosnan Bonds, but it all paves the way for an injection of grit with Casino Royale."
‑ , Film4
"Die Another Day makes you long for the days when Roger Moore played 007. And who would ever admit to that!"
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"I've been dining out on this story for years, and the meals seem to be getting poorer."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
