Pretty average; not as good as Goldeneye.
There are a lot of things to like about this one, including Michelle Yeoh as a super-competent Chinese agent, hot Teri Hatcher as a Bond girl, Brosnan's cool quips, several cool stunts, a scheme that's at once modern and retro (taking over the world by manipulating the media, yet no mention of the Internet), and oh look, young Hugh Bonneville in a one-line role. I'm less enthusiastic about Jonathan Pryce's cartoony villain - he's wayyy over the top - and the whole enterprise is lost in the final over-long sequence aboard the stealth boat, which is just a lot of shooting (as previously established, these put me to sleep, noise and all) and the death of the villains in the wrong order and with little to no irony. Failing in the last act as it does, it loses all the good will it had accumulated in the first two and I remembered it, justly, as a bust.
Used to think this was a good Bond film - but now I'm not of that mindset.
