Tomorrow Never Dies


For Bond flick #18, Pierce Brosnan's 007 has to stop media mogul Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce), who not only foments war between the Brits and the Chinese but manipulates government policy through his worldwide satellite network and his Tomorrow newspaper. The road to action-adventure armageddon leads through Hamburg and on to Saigon, where James teams up with Wai Lin (Hong Kong martial-arts star Michelle Yeoh). Brosnan is credible, Pryce is memorably malevolent, and Yeoh is good if miscast, but Teri Hatcher shoots blanks as the requisite "Kiss the Girl and Make Her Die" lady. Still, this film will make you think twice about what you read in your newspaper.
