I was literally the first person through the door, when 'Die Another Day' premiered in Dublin last week, waiting to see if my all time favourite of GoldenEye would be beaten by the latest instalment of Bond mayhem. It wasn't, but this movie was far from bad. Without giving too much away, I think the pre-title sequence, was the best of any bond film, with an interesting and unexpected twist of fate for 007, which will have the viewer intrigued for the rest of the film. Then the music comes on, with the customary female dancers serving only as decoration for unique images of 007 himself as a mis-treated prisoner. I was asking myself, ";is this gonna be another 'Licence To Kill' in terms of violence?!"; Thankfully not, as you'll soon see, all the makings of a great bond movie are there for all to see: beautiful girls, great gadgets, vehicle chases galore, and of course, an evil maniac trying to control the universe!! Even Michael Madson is in the movie! Also, the film is very funny in places,- a wheelchair scene, moneypenny's moment, and Bond walking into a posh hotel looking far from his normal self, spring to mind. There are more bond films worse than there are better. A must see, seriously!
