    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    The film forgets that Bond's most dangerous actions have always been his quietest ones, in which he uses his charisma to turn his enemies against themselves.

    Tomorrow Never Dies is a better film than Goldeneye. In fact, it's the best Bond film in many years.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    There's a high gloss and some nice payoffs, but not quite as much humor as usual; Bond seems to be straying from his tongue-in-cheek origins into the realm of conventional techno-thrillers.

Iffy for 13+

Bond, James Bond. For mature eyes only.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the film's violence and sexual content may make it unsuitable for younger or more sensitive kids. Kids will see plenty of machine-gunning, stabbing, and fierce hand-to-hand combat, but only a few glimpses of blood. There's also a fair deal of fooling around under the sheets, partial undressing, and silly double entendres.

  • Families can talk about this movie's message. What point, if any, do you think the filmmaker was trying to get across? Does this movie have a message? Do action movies often have messages? Even if a movie has no message, can it still influence the thinking of its viewers?
