It's a step down from Goldeneye but it makes fun escapist fare with the 007 you expect.
I enjoy watching Pierce Brosnan in this. Charming and bad ass as usual an Ian Fleming's James Bond. Michelle Yeoh was a great casting choice as well. I think she is an underrated Bond Girl in my opinion. Capable and fast on her feet.
Johnathan Pryce is OK. I thought he was more egotistical then menancing but I guess that was the point. Teri Hatcher was wasted here but she plays secondary Bond Girl. Götz Otto was a great bad guy muscle. Menacing and arrogant.
The direction is OK. Roger Spottiswoode is no Martin Campbell but he is equal to John Glen in the director's seat when it comes to Bond. The action is plentiful and well filmed/edited. However, it upstages the plot and acting.
The script despite coming from Goldeneye writer Bruce Feirstein is lacking. The idea of using network satellites to overtake military satellites is silly but this series gave us spaceships being stolen to start World War III so anything is possible. I just don't see it as intimidating as Goldeneye.
I dug David Arnold's score and Sheryl Crow performing the theme.
Tomorrow Never Dies is enjoyable despite it's shortcomings. I could see re-writes as I watched.
