  THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

 

 

This is the 19th James Bond movie, with all the usual things we expect: evil villains, sexy women, thuggish henchmen, secret weapons, chase scenes, and all sorts of gadgets. Everything to please us loyal fans!

The Bond films have established its own set of rules, so let's not change anything and keep on Bonding.

I know you're asking yourself how many arch-villains can be left since the Cold War ended? Well, as long as there is even one atomic warhead (and there seems to be plenty), we'll need James Bond.

Despite its weak script, this Bond film has everything you've come to expect: gadgets, stunts, exotic women with odd names, and, yes, even a ski chase. Pierce Brosnan is more Bondlike than ever--cold, calculated, & spylike--a tired genre updated to the 90s that still works.

I'll have mine shaken, not stirred.

James Bond, the suave secret agent 007 is back for the 19th installment of the ever-popular series, called The World Is Not Enough.

The film features more than enough chases, gadgets, flashy feats involving speedboats, skis, submarines, and even an underground oil pipeline chase scene with the world's most underdressed nuclear scientist in a tank top.

The story makes no sense, but it goes by too fast to really notice. I enjoyed this non-thinker.
