Die Another Day is a 2002 James Bond movie that features Pierce Brosnan as the titular character. The story follows Bond as he tries to thwart the plot of a North Korean General named Tan-Sun Moon and his associates, who are trying to gain control of a weapon of mass destruction. The movie starts off with Bond being captured in North Korea after an operation goes wrong. He spends over a year in captivity and is eventually released in a prisoner exchange. However, he is stripped of his double-0 status and has to go through various tests to prove his loyalty to MI6. One of the tests that Bond undergoes is to retrieve a gadget from a terrorist named Zao, who has shown up in Cuba, with the help of an American agent named Jinx (Halle Berry). Bond and Jinx succeed in their mission, but not before they get into a fight with Zao and his cohorts, which results in Bond getting captured. Bond eventually escapes and heads to an ice palace in Iceland where he meets Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens), a billionaire who has developed a weapon that fires from space. Graves shows off his weapon by firing it at a satellite, but Bond recognizes the weapon as being of North Korean origin. Bond then teams up with American intelligence agent Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike) who is working for Graves, and they discover that Tan-Sun Moon is still alive and is really Gustav Graves, thanks to a face altering process. They also find out that Graves' satellite is actually a superweapon capable of causing mass destruction. The rest of the movie sees Bond and Jinx trying to stop Graves, with the help of MI6, and they eventually succeed in doing so. Of course, the action-packed conclusion is full of explosions, fast cars, and high-tech gadgets. Die Another Day was generally well-received by audiences and critics. Pierce Brosnan is charming as ever as James Bond, and Halle Berry makes for a great female lead. The movie also features some visually stunning set pieces, like the aforementioned ice palace. Overall, Die Another Day is a great addition to the James Bond franchise and is a must-watch for fans of the series.
