Default 'Die Another Day' - High-Def Digest Review

Ken has reviewed 'Die Another Day.' He says the movie is a disaster, but this Blu-ray delivers excellent video, near-reference quality lossless audio, and plenty of supplements. Bad flick, good disc.

Default This is worse than Timothy Dalton's Bond!!!

I agree with his summation of Die Another Day 150%!!! This is the one film that has actually managed to sink lower on the Bond scale than even Timothy Dalton's films! The unthinkable has happened. And out of all the Bonds to put Halle Berry in, she appears in this laughable oddity! Even if her role throughout the whole movie required her to be completely nude, it still couldn't have saved this horrendous, Titanic-sinking failure.

While I certainly agree that Die Another Day is a terrible movie, the statement that it was "a failure that nearly destroyed the Bond franchise" isn't quite correct. In fact, it was the highest grossing of all the Bond films to that point. Perhaps a clarification that it was an "artistic failure" might be appropriate?

For some reason, the worst Bond films often do the best business. At the time of its release, Moonraker was also the highest grossing Bond film.

@ utl

60% is hardly good.

Never was a fan of Brosnan's films (I didn't like any of them), but this one stunk beyond belief.

I actually thankful for this film, because without this "artistic disaster" we wouldn't have had the reboot that is Casino Royale.

I agree.
that is definitely one way to look at it.

btw: when I saw "Moonraker" back in the day I thought it was awesome.
the "real" Jaws!
