Product Description

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

Additional Features

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

Format: DVD
One thing for sure about "Die Another Day": the writers well understood (and paid tribute to) the great Bond movies of the past. The end result is a movie that, while not perhaps as great as the films it honors, certainly takes its place as one of the best modern Bond films made.
Nearly every previous Bond classic is represented here: there is, of course, the acknowledged nod of the head to Dr. No and the famous bikini sequence. But you don't have to look very hard to see many other references. There are depressuring fights on a plane ("Goldfinger"), a great car chase on ice sequence ("The Living Daylights"), Bond leaving the service as a rogue ("License to Kill"), diamond weapon in the sky ("Diamonds are Forever"), the list goes on and on (I would even venture to say there is a tribute of sorts to the foolishness that went on during Roger Moore's Bond days; the unbelievable wind surfing stunt Bond pulls about halfway through is exactly the sort of silliness that Moore did all the time).
Cynics might say this is true of any Bond film nowadays; they are so derivative they resort to stealing from themselves. But I don't think that's the case here. It's pretty clear the writers knew what they were doing when John Cleese even quotes some of the great "Q" lines from the past in his excellent sequence where he provides Bond his new Aston Martin (and now we've come full circle there as well, returning to the car that made Bond famous).
I'm not a big Halle Berry fan, but she's very good here. More to the point are the villians. Toby Stephens and Rick Yune are terrific, as so is Pierce, who ironically is hitting his stride and seems totally comfortable in a role he's soon to give up.
If you've enjoyed the great Bond movies in the past, you're sure to appreciate this one. Even those new to Bond should have fun with the action and adventure.

People, from one "veteran" Bond fan to another, let me just say that if you felt any reservations concerning "Die Another Day" whatsoever, rest your minds at ease...Bond #20 is in a word...AWESOME!!
Brosnan is at his best as agent 007, John Cleese appears to be a worthy successor to the role of Q (made famous by the beloved Desmond Llewelyn...who will forever be missed), Judi Dench and Samantha Bond have by now firmly rooted themselves as the perfect choices to bring the characters of M and Money Penny into the new millennium, and lets not forget the ever important "icy" villains and ever alluring women that complete the tried and true formula that is the classic Bond film!
Throw in a wonderful title song performed by Madonna, another amazing score by composer David Arnold, delightful references to the Bond films of the past, and what you get is simply the best Bond movie to be released in nearly 20 years!
"Die Another Day" is everything that 007 fans have come to expect, and just goes to show that when it comes to pulse-pounding action and adventure, beautiful women and fiendishly diabolical villains...nobody does it better...than the one and only Bond...James Bond!!

32 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Darren O'Connor on June 9, 2003
Format: DVD
As other reviewers have commented, the Bond films used to be trendsetters in dictating the shape of action films to come; now they just copy the formula of most of the recent big budget action films - over-reliance on special effects, ridiculously overdone stunts and exploits from the main character, and story very definitely taking a back seat. Now I like great special effects, but ever since CGI became an effective tool for filmakers, they've gone on a kind of adolescent FX wankfest. And I like great stunts too, but the action simply cannot be allowed to get so outrageous that it torpedoes suspension of disbelief, which is precisely what happens here.
Remember when Bond was a very human character? Think back to films like "From Russia With Love". Remember Bond's fight with Red Grant on the Orient Express? There he was, disarmed, being held at gunpoint by a vicious psychopath who had killed his only ally on the train, and who just managed to get the drop on him, and there was no help in sight. Bond used his wits and a very low key gadget supplied by Q to get even up the odds. The ensuing fight on the train was not choreographed to depict the fighters with ballet like grace. It was not shown in super slo mo. There were no huge explosions and there was no FX tour de force. And it was one of the best fight scenes in the entire series. It was gripping and suspenseful. You felt like Bond was really in serious trouble, and he could get killed. It was believable. The whole film was believable.
Sadly, you can't say that about this movie. It's all just... ludicrous. The weapons and gadgets belong in a Star Trek movie, not a James Bond film. Bond himself is no longer a human character, with whom audiences can identify; he's a superhero in a tux instead of spandex and a cape.

This movie is really good.It has action and alot of excitement.This James Bond movie is good. Anybody a fan of it, should see it RIGHT NOW!


The 2.40:1 anamorphic image transfer is a wonder to behold. The overall aesthetic is pristine, appearing smooth and lifelike throughout. The opeining sequence boasts an intentoinally cold and subdued color palette, consising of cooll,bluish tones that are nicely contrasted by the warm, vibrant hue evident later in the film. The picture conveys a commendable level of detail with a soothing touch of film grain that adds significantly to the film-like appearance. The only distraction is a noticeable amount of edge enhancement. While easily detectable,its presence is never bothersome enough to detrack from the sheer splendor of this winning transfer.


Attention audio fanatics:prepare to be dazzled. The outstanding Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks both feature 6.1 matrix processing,allowing those with rear surround capability the option to become completely immersed in audio nirvana. Being able to apply this technology, I was amazed by the robust energy generated from the rear soundfield. I did feel,however,that the format is underplayed a bit. While the rear speaker certainly helps tighten the sense of 360-degree imaging,I felt as if the sound designers were somewhat reserved in fully utilizing the back surround speaker. Nevertheless,this is an insignificant gripe for what is otherwise a supreme soundtrack. Whil the Dolby Digital EX track is excellent, the DTS-ES reigns superior with a more neutral high end,warmer mid-range and tighter,deeper bass.
