OverviewThe World Is Not Enough is an exhilarating but sophisticated, action-packed adventure. Pierce Brosnan returns as Bond, charged to protect a gorgeous billionaire heiress (Sophie Marceau) from the ruthless hands of a nuclear-obsessed terrorist Renard (Robert Carlyle), who wants control of the world’s petroleum supply.
My thoughtsBond marathon #19

I think I have watched TWINE three times before, and for some reason I don't dislike Denise Richards quite as much as I used to. I no longer consider her the worst Bond girl ever. That honor must – I am sad to say – go to Britt Ekland. But Denise takes a close second place. Sophie Marceau is another matter. She's really good. And hot. And Dame Judi Dench can do no wrong in my eyes.

Robert Carlyle isn't bad as the villain, just underused and his role just isn't terribly interesting. Robbie Coltrane returns from Goldeneye as Valentin Zukovsky, but it's a rather bland role. The most cringe-worthy, next to Denise, is John Cleese as Q's replacement. Pierce Brosnan is still quite good in the lead, although he's not really Bond for me.

The pre-credit sequence is very good. In fact most of the actions sequences are good, as they should be with Vic Armstrong (ex stuntman/stunt director) as second unit director. The problem is more in the script as nothing seems very fresh.

The script is better than the one for Tomorrow Never Dies, but it has its flaws. Stockholm syndrome made Elektra King want to murder 8 million people for monetary gain? Thank God none of the people in the real Stockholm drama (a bank robbery in august 1973) went anywhere near that crazy! The head of MI6 going out into the field herself? Hardly!

Some good, some bad makes this just a so-so Bond movie. But even so-so Bond movies can be quite entertaining. And it's a step up from Tomorrow Never Dies.

My Thoughts:
It has been many years since I seen this movie. Not since the late '80s or early '90s. So I really remembered nothing about the movie itself, I only remembered that I liked this one more then Prom Night. While this is not what I would call a great movie... i do believe it is better then the first part.I actually found myself enjoying it quite a bit. Unfortunately the DVD is lacking a bit when it comes to extras... as there isn't any at all. Not even a trailer!

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The IT Crowd: Version 3.0 - (mini) marathon, a review by Achim


2. Are We Not men?
Hilarious how Roy and Moss blend in with "proper men"; bluffball.com provides the needed phrases for conversation on a daily basis. There is a few scenes that have less laughs than usual but they are needed to set up the plot and the whole episode feels more complete that way.

...and of course there is also the driving instructor. :D
