22. Die Another Day (2002)
Box Office: $160.9 million/$431.9 million
Director: Lee Tamahori
Theme Song Performed By: Madonna
Fun Fact: Madge is the only theme-song performer to have a cameo in a Bond film she plays a fencing instructor.
Plot: Pierce Brosnan's fourth and final film as 007 pushes plausibility to its breaking point and gives us the showstopping sight of Halle Berry in an orange bikini. After being tortured in a North Korean prison, Bond is released and goes off-mission to Cuba, trying to find out who betrayed him and win back his rescinded license to kill. Berry adds some feisty spice, but the villain (Toby Stephens' Gustav Graves) is a bit forgettable and the invisible car chase at his Icelandic Ice Palace is double-0 hooey. C+
