007 December – Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) – MovieRob


 007-December Blogathon

Here’s my review of Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)

Thanks to Luke for his review earlier today!

 

Tomorrow-Never-Dies-1997“The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success. ” – Elliot Carver

Number of Times Seen – at least 3 times (Theater in 1997, DVD and 17 Dec 2014)

Brief Synopsis – Bond is sent to stop a media mogul from starting a war in order to raise his ratings.

My Take on it – For Brosnan’s second outing as Bond, he was able to prove to the public that although he has the right look to be Bond, if the story isn’t strong enough, he can’t hold the film up all alone.

The premise is even sillier than most of the other Bond films and when you have a laughable character as the main villain it just can’t work.

Jonathan Price just isn’t close to being a menacing megalomaniac.

The best part of this movie is by far the title song sung by Sheryl Crow.

Bottom Line – One of the weakest official Bond films that has a terrible villain who doesn’t even resemble a menace.  Only great point is the amazing title song by Sheryl Crow.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy

Here’s the main title song by Sheryl Crow
