Down to the last dollar, every penny of the most expensive Bond film ever made -150 million- is visible on screen. Brosnon's fourth outing is a pure tour de force, and is overall the best and most polished of his movies so far. Being the 20th bond flick there are many gadget references to previous Connery & Moore films. This element could have been really nostalgic laden and heavy handed but instead is done with a subtle sense of fun. Chick factor? Halle Berrie is right up there head and shoulders (and all the rest of her!) with the likes of Honnar Blackman, Barbra Bach and Michele Yeouh in the pantheon of Bond heroins as opposed to just flavour-of-the-movie Bond girls. Villain factor? A hommicidal bastard of course! Probably the most lively and interesting homicidal bastard in the Brosnan flicks to date. And he's written with a neat twist, which I wont go spoil here. Pre-credit sequence? Rockin'(Surfin' Bond!). Self contained but an integral part of the plot which continues right on through the opening titles and beyond. Humour/One liners? Not as smooth and hillarious as Tomorrow Never Dies zingers but the standard is kept up. Die Another Day is a slick, polished gargantuan action picture and washes away the mediocre taste left by World is Not Enough. I'll leave it to my girfirend to sum-up: "This is Brosnon being Connery in a great Roger Moore."
