007 by the numbers

Most of Tomorrow Never Dies lacks the wit and inventiveness of the best Bond

After John Glen directed five Bond films in a row, the producers cannily decided to shake up the series by choosing the relatively unlikely Martin Campbell (Criminal Law, Defenseless) for GoldenEye. While it seems a good idea to have fresh directors on each new film, veteran Roger Spottiswoode (The Best of Times, Under Fire) doesn't seem to bring much to the party. And the wisecracks in the script by Bruce Feirstein (who wrote Real Men Don't Eat Quiche and had a co-credit on GoldenEye) aren't particularly witty.

Tomorrow Never Dies.
Directed by Roger Spottiswoode. Written by Bruce Feirstein. Starring Pierce Brosnan, Jonathan Pryce, Michelle Yeoh, and Teri Hatcher. Opens Friday.
