The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

In this movie the great James Bond finds himself in yet another impossible situation with only his wits and those of what must be his 40th chick out of all the movies. This time a terrorist makes a giant satellite dish-looking thing in the sky called Icarus. Icarus was made to be some sort of light thing that makes it bright all the time on earth (dumb idea). But it turns out that Icarus doubles as a giant laserbeam (figure) and is going to be used to take down all the major cities on earth. All in all, great action and great suspense.
The review of this Movie prepared by Tristan M

Die Another Day is the best Bond film of the lot, also being the 20th installment on the 40th Aniversary of James Bond 007. Bond himself is betrayed in North Korea, after being sent to assassinate renegade Colonel Moon, and is captured and tortured for 14 months. After being released, and shunned by his superiors, 007 goes in search of Zao, a Korean who was working for Moon in the first place. The trail of diamond smuggling and special face-lifts that conceal Zao's identity, Bond encounters Sir Gustav Graves, mastermind of a scheme to exact revenge on the West and win back South Korea using a giant space laser which draws on energy from the Sun. Technical gadgets dominate the film, with Bond's Aston Martin V12 Vanquish stealing the show as it can turn invisible through Q's own Adaptive Camaoflage system. Pierce Brosnan is wonderful as James Bond, and this film really stands proud of any other action film released.

James Bond returns in this thriller. The main enemy is one Gustav Graves, who is actually a North Korean agent with plastic surgery. The North Koreans have a lot of diamonds, but their real plot (like in Diamonds are Forever) is to take over South Korea with the help of a huge laser.
