In the 18th James Bond film (second with Pierce Brosnan playing Bond), Bond has to stop the start of a possible World War 3. Elliot Carver (played by Jonathan Pryce, is a powerful media figure who's about to launch his Satellite News Network around the world. Needing a story to
headline the big event, he decides to start a global conflict to boost his ratings. He uses a stealth ship to sink a British naval frigate and make it look like the Chinese
military was responsible. This even sets the two countries at the brink of war. Who's to prevent this? Well, who else?
This Bond film was better than the previous one, Goldeneye, but it wasn't perfect. Tomorrow...
was faster, more intense & more chock-full of action scenes, senseless violence, etc... But it remained more entertaining than Goldeneye.
A disappointment is Bond's lust for women. He's obviously never heard of abstinence & all he ever does is have sex with women & then literally kisses
them goodbye. The film also had what seemed like too many stunts & action scenes, failing to slow down for more than a couple minutes. But it was far from
boring. I really think Brosnan is the best Bond since Sean Connery. It was relieving not to see Pryce portrayed as a maniacal, corny, take-over-the-world-psycho, rather he is
smarter & more sophisticated. The movie was not the best, it was good & entertaining & a must for Bond fans, but this is in no way a kids' film.
Parental Guide: Brief Summary of Content
Sex/Nudity: Sex, but no real nudity. Like all other Bond flicks, Bond has his times of pointless
fun with the females. In the beginning, he has sex with a Dutch girl and we see them in bed together
but no nudity or the actual act of sex. Later on, some innuendo is instituted when Bond is told to "pump"
Carver's wife for information.
And later he does have sex with his old friend (Carver's wife) & we see the top of her bare back as he removes her
dress, but no nudity is made visible. Also, the standard opening credits show the silouettes of nude females,
but nothing is clearly shown. When Bon and Wai Lin are taking an outdoor shower with clothes on,
her shirt is wet and becomes translucent.
Vulgarity/Language: 1 "s" word, 2 "d*mn," 7 "h*ll," 1 "J-sus," 1 "Chr-st," 1 "Oh my G-d"
Alcohol/Drugs: Champagne, vodka, martinis. Bond finds cocaine in a safe.
Blood/Gore: Bond's a little bloody after a fight &
after the movie's finale. A man is struck in the neck with a chinese star by Wai Lin & a little blood
is shown for a brief second. A man falls into a printing press, killing him, making the papers running through it
stained with blood. In the finale, Bond stabs a man in the arm with a knife & blood is seen trickling down his
Violence: Loads of it. People being shot, kicked, stabbed,
punched, beaten, things blowing up, crashing, etc. Bond shoots a man in the head off screen.
The way a man dies at the end is very violent, yet nothing is shown.
