James Bond 50: Yeoh, That’s More Like It

 

As the world’s most famous spy celebrates 50 years as a movie star, the time has come to celebrate everything we love about him. In 22 blog posts, I’ll find something in every Bond movie, from Dr. No (1962) to Quantum of Solace (2008), that’s worth illustrating. Yes, even the bad ones.

The eighteenth film in this series introduced not only a perky red blazer for Q (Desmond Llewelyn) but also two Bond girls, but one of them overshadowed the other completely. Poor Teri Hatcher had no chance against Hong Kong action star Michelle Yeoh in her portrayal of a Chinese agent that should remind Bond fans of Barbara Bach as the Soviet spy in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). The best of the Bond girls always know how to handle themselves and Yeoh got to kick some serious butt, as the trailer shows above.

My 2004 review of Tomorrow Never Dies.
