Bond meets Mr. Faulty

This is an excellent Bond movie with great stunts, plenty of action and of course the women.

A lot was made of Hale Berry she was interesting and a good character but didn't take over the movie as suggested.

I'm really getting sick of M being played for a fool in these movies. This never happened before Ms Dench took the Job.

The sword fight in the center was quite awsome and I didn't recognize Madona dressed she should try it more often.

Bond Locked up for over a year was interesting.

However this movie hit a brick wall for me when John Cleese came on the screen. Cleese plays Q as Basil Faulty and the result is SO good and SO funny that it frankly eclipses the rest of the movie. I find myself smiling just thinking about it.

There is an excellent comic moment at the end tangently involving Cleese as well. Both of those scenes are worth the price of the movie.

Pros: Action and excitement and beautiful scenes.     Cons: Violence and sexual content and language not too good for kids.     The Bottom Line: I would highly recommend this for all Bond fans, but not for children.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. I have been collecting James Bond movies, for as long as I can remember. I have the whole set which entails over 20 movies. If you were to purchase …

In DIE ANOTHER DAY, the 20th James Bond adventure, 007 (Pierce Brosnan) gets off to a rough start when he is captured and subsequently tortured during an assignment in North Korea. When the suave secret agent is eventually liberated, he embarks on a dangerous mission to Cuba that involves tracking a terrorist named Zao (Rick Yune). There, 007 encounters Jinx (Halle Berry), a formidable and alluring fellow spy. Soon Bond is back in England following a mysterious trail that leads to Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens), a flamboyant diamond mogul. After a rather bloody introduction, Graves invites 007 to Iceland, where he plans to unveil his enigmatic Icarus project. Before long, Bond and Jinx are reunited and battling Graves, Zao, and other villains bent on world domination. <br> <br> With this Bond installment, directed by Lee Tamahori, 007 catches up with the 21st century, and the results are grittier and more explosive than ever before.
