Die Another Day

Die may not be the best James Bond film — how could it be, since Sean Connery isn't in it? But Pierce Brosnan, in his fourth time at bat, finally finds the right note of killer charm. And Halle Berry does wonders for a bikini, just like the one that almost covered Ursula Andress in the first Bond film, Dr. No. What makes this two-disc set a keeper are the extras, which expand on everything from the opening credits to stunts, action, gadgets and the footage that had to be digitally altered. It's orgasm time for 007 freaks.
