Yes, pretty much on the money.
-PTS post-surfing, which I didn't like (poor CGI & monotone colours during the hovercraft sequence & entire PTS which reminds me of something else I saw recently)
-The hotel scene (which also had horrendous Hong Kong harbour CGI).
-The Ice Palace looked good inside for sure, but I thought had a complete CGI / painted feel from the exterior.
The Aston/Jag sequence looks like a classic & a series high for these two brands going up against each other, at least these days.
Well, that's priceless. I always suspected deep down inside you there is a DAD fan :))
Especially the interior is unique and original and I think it looks real enough.
The car chase in the palace, it melting etc. is bloody great and I'm always looking forward to those sequences. Not to mention one of the very best car chases ever with two stunningly beautiful cars on ice.
The end-game in the plane really is a lot like the first Captain America movie. Think about it. They may even have been inspired by DAD, the similarities are there.
I love Graves' suit, the catfight in the plane, the solar death ray is great and those special effects belong to the best the series has to offer.
The comic relief also works very well in my opinion. The sports cars landing in the rice fields is priceless.
Personally I am very glad there was another totally OTT Bond after Moonraker.
Agreed. DAD is best remembered in the post 911 context it first existed. We didn't want real and serious then.
The Blades sequence is classic Bond.
John Cleese's Q scene is a throwback to the classic GF, and an improvement over his bit in TWINE.
The Ice-Palace is a Peter Lamont set that I think Ken Adam would approve of. An underrated and truly Bondian set
Zao as a henchman has more to do than, say Gombinda , Dario or Stamper. Actually next to Onatopp probably the best 2nd villain in a Brosnan film.
The score by David Arnold is reliably good.
Lots to love about DAD.
The opening surf sequence at dawn is quite impressive.
Moon's anger management therapy in the pretitles always gets a laugh out of me.
London Calling and Grave's parachute entrance is impressive.
Roger Moore's daughter as an air hostess too.
Rosamund Pike as Miranda Frost of course.
That's about it. I could leave the rest.
I like most of the Cuba scenes.
And the one feature it was missing, invisibility
Its the film which got me into Bond and since that i never missed a new Bond film in theaters.
Its a film that should be seen as an Homage film to the franchise than just your typical Bond Adventure.
Its nice seeing all the references to the old films which are not that many but i enjoyed very very much this very Glamorous and fun Bond flick witha feel which is just watch and enjoy.
Pierce was great and definitely at this most confident with the Hotel scene in Honk Kong, the clinic scene in Cuba and the sword fight vlub scene being standout moments.
I also liked very much the battle of the cars and the presentation of the Vanquish.
Its one of my all time favorite Bond flicks but i can see why many fans hate this. Its always these more outlandish Bond films which are the most Polarizing like Moonraker. diamonds are forever, Spectre and Die another day
These are love or hate films and all the fans of any these movies should accept both sides.
That's exactly how i see it thanks for explaing it better than i did and yes thats the main reason to love it just like Spectre its just that spectre made that birthday party two years latter than actual anniversary.
Maybe Mendez felt Skyfall as being the third Craig Bond film wasn't appropriate for a film like die Another day so when he came back he decided it was time for it.
Meanwhile Tamahory went all big in his first chance he had.
Like one of those birthday parties some mug puts on Facebook and 5000 pissed twats turn up and trash the house.
That was Skyfall actually.
On the polar opposite, DAD was nothing BUT fun.
I like a middle ground better, but given the choice I'll pick fun over dire most any day.
And once again Judi Dench could play M.
Brosnan's official NSNA, basically?
I constantly dog TMWTGG, but I can agree with that: Roger's performance in that film is amazing.
TMWTGG is one I absolutely never tire of.
