Awesome / Die Another Day

  • The hovercraft chase through the DMZ's minefield.
  • A lovely Chinese lady enters Bond's hotel room as "entertainment". He pretends to feel her up...then finds and steals her gun. He then smashes the mirror to find people with cameras behind it.
  • Bond's Aston Martin Vanquish and Zao's Jaguar XKR duel.
  • Jinx's conclusion of a Cat Fight by stabbing Miranda Frost in the heart — through the book The Art of War.
  • The fencing duel between Bond and Graves. Even critics like Mr. Plinkett consider it a fine example of a film swordfight done right.
  • Bond's torture in the beginning is pretty brutal, but we get one bit of awesomeness in it: the lovely Torture Technician who oversees it. She's not attracted to him in any sort of way, nor does she even pretend to be—in her eyes, he's just another prisoner to be tortured. And she gets away with it!
  • Real Life example: While filming their love scene, Halle Berry started choking on a fig. Pierce Brosnan saved her life by applying the Heimlich Maneuver.
