When his top-secret mission is sabotaged, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) finds himself captured by theenemy, abandoned by MI6 and stripped of his 00-license. Determined to get revenge, Bond goes head-to-head with a sultry spy (OscarÂ(r) winner* Halle Berry), a frosty agent (Rosamund Pike) anda shadowy billionaire (Toby Stephens) whose business is diamonds but whose secret is a diabolical weapon that could bring the world to its knees! Bristling with excitement and bursting with explosivespecial effects, Die Another Day is an adrenaline-pumping thrill-ride with "stunts and non-stop action [that] will astonish you" (Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC-TV)! *2001: Actress, Monster'sBall
Ported over from the special-edition DVD are the two commentary tracks and the trivia track. The first commentary track is by Pierce Brosnan and Rosamund Pike (who plays villain Miranda Frost). They weren't together at the time, so their comments are spliced into one track. Brosnan has a good time watching and is proud of the film but also doesn't take himself too seriously ("They don't teach you this stuff at drama school: 'OK, now you're going to be electrocuted by the bad guy.'"). Self-proclaimed "Bond novice" Pike also is proud of the film and says she's annoyed by people who question whether there's still a need for Bond. On the second commentary track, director Lee Tamahori and producer Michael G. Wilson chat about topics as diverse as casting, Bond lore, and product placements. For more Bond lore, don't overlook the "MI6 datastream" trivia track, which offers pop-up tidbits about the filming and tips on the inside jokes.
The remaining special features are divided into three groups. Declassified: MI6 Vault collects about two hours of behind-the-scenes material, presented in widescreen standard definition and covering the opening surfing sequence; the scenes set in North Korea and Cuba (including Halle Berry's bikini tribute to Ursula Andress); the ice palace; post-production elements such as computer graphics, editing, and music; the car battle (finding strong ice was the key safety issue); and the passing of the "Q" torch from Desmond Llewellyn to John Cleese: "From Script to Screen" (51:40), "Shaken and Stirred on Ice" (23:35), "Just Another Day" (22:39, covers a day of shooting the parachute landing in London), and "The British Touch: Bond Arrives in London" (3:32), "On Location with Production Designer Peter Lamont" (13:51, production designer shooting frozen scenes in Iceland and Alaska, Cuba). 007 Mission Control jumps to clips from the film for Bond (including signature lines), girls, allies, and villains, the action sequences, and the gadgets, plus a location featurette. Mission Combat Manual jumps to action sequences, and "Q Branch" to the gadgets, but "Exotic Locations" is a three-minute overview of locations narrated by Samantha Bonney. The image database collects cast portraits, special photo shoots, sets & locations, stunts & special effects, and vehicles & gadgets. --David Horiuchi

I love this Bond Movie!... Pierce Brosnan is great as Bond; and this Bond Girl gets a thumbs upPublished 26 days ago by JMS
Stale, oiverlong, cliched from start to finish, with silly acting. Brosnan seemed bored all along, and the "threats" to the world just nonsense. Read morePublished 1 month ago by BarryH. Wiley
Die Another Day is a special Bond ilm. Aside from being the 20th in the franchise, it also Pierce Bosnan's last turn as 007 and a homage to the Bond culture and films of the past. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Jaime Contreras
