Summary: One of the best Bond films.
Pierce Brosnan returns as James Bond in an explosive thriller. As times goes by, the Bond films just get more and more violent. Pushing this to more extremes is costar Michelle Yeoh, who has worked with Jackie Chan in the past. This is an exciting, rewarding, and very funny film. Brosnan is an excellent Bond, one of the best ever. The special effects are top-notch, and the only thing that could be improved would be the pacing; the transitions from end-of-your-seat excitement with car chases and fights to the slower plots and intrigue bothered me just a tiny bit. What Bond films need now is a more talented director or editor.

Summary: Like a Hong Kong action flick on valium
I guess when I see Michelle Yeoh I expect a certain level of frenetic energy that this film fails to deliver. As a Bond film it's about average, with no real surprises in any direction. As an action film it just feels like it's moving through molasses. Yeoh is wasted here, someone get her a decent action script and let her go nuts. Oh, and someone please shoot Teri Hatcher before she can do any more damage.
