Review by Jesse Ryder Hughes


SYNOPSIS:

Bond goes into North Korea, meeting with Colonel Tan-Sun Moon, posing as an arms dealer trading illegal African conflict diamonds. His cover is blown by Zao, Tan-Sun Moon's 2nd in command. Bond then gets into a hovercraft chase with the Colonel over a mine field. Bond sends Tan-Sun Moon over a cliff to his death. Bond is then captured by Tan- Sun Moon's father and imprisoned for fourteen months and tortured. Bond gets traded for Zao later on with the CIA and MI6 worried about Bond leaking information. Bond is suspended of his license, but that doesn't stop him from chasing Zao to Cuba where he meets Jinx (Halle Berry) who is investigating a gene therapy lab. The lab leads them to Gustav Graves and to Iceland where some plot twists ensue. In Iceland Graves is powering and showing off his dangerous satellite system(operated by diamonds) and Bond gets to test out his invisible car. Jinx and Bond chase Graves together to stop yet another megalomaniac and his crazy schemes.

REVIEW:

I love Die Another Day for its homage to every single Bond film from the past. Little innuendos and jokes, plot points and plot twists that all pay homage to the previous films. In that Die Another Day is a lot of fun, but the story they come up with is pretty ridiculous and I have trouble enjoying it because to me it is more over the top than any of the Roger Moore films. For example there is an invisible car that I have mentioned before (the Q branch is getting better and better over the years, but there is a point when you really stop believing that they can do anything). Bond goes to Graves' palace made of ice and Tan-Sun Moon transforming into Gustav Graves through gene therapy is pretty crazy, even though it was a tribute to Blofeld creating dopplegangers in Diamonds are forever.

The one liners towards Bond completely turn him into a tool. Every woman in the script it seems has a comeback for what he is going to say and it is non stop. I actually feel bad for Bond, because everyone is making him seem worse than he is. I'm all for Bond having kick ass woman with him, but the writing and dialogue is constantly shoved down our throats. You can tell the producers were scared of the Bond from the past and forcing that Bond to co exist in the present and that his actions are not okay, to make woman that complained about the Bond films happy. Casino Royale does it better and makes it more of a psychological condition just like the books, due to the stress of the job, we are put in an honest position to take Bonds views of women as a character flaw and condition. In Die Another Day it just becomes absurd and it seems like a fight. It really makes sense that the series needed a serious reboot.

The action scenes are stupid with mediocre CGI. Die Another Day is definitely the Moonraker of this generation. I can see me going back to Die Another Day and enjoying it with some friends for classic bad Bond fashion.

It isn't all that bad though. Tamahori has some really great filming techniques and dramatic slow motion shots and fit well with what he is doing. I think he knew the type of movie he was making and really went all out with it, which is commendable and smart, but it still turned out to be hokey. Halle Berry's character Jinx is Bond, if Bond was a beautiful woman. She knew how to play Bond's game and they make her look tough, but her fight scenes are edited funny, which makes me question if the editing is making up for her fighting skills, unlike Michelle Yeoh in Tomorrow Never Dies. I remember they wanted to have a spin off with Jinx having her own spy franchise, but I don't know what happened.

Over all I am very glad they rebooted the series. Die Another Day is my least favorite Bond film of the series and when I went to the theatre I was disappointed especially after Goldeneye which gave me high hopes for the future (Brosnan) Bond, the film was a mash of the present times and the past Bond traditions. The mix just doesn't work, it is too forced and far-fetched and preachy all at once. That is why we needed to see bond as more of a real person. It's unfortunate that Brosnan's Bond films ended in a crazy fashion. It seems to be the cycle. Hopefully the writers don't get to haywire with Daniel Craig.
