The world is not enough film

Postby Maukora В» 17.04.2020

Hammond, Sumnar Gard, Gaston Bell, etc.

Because it is also the 19th James Bond movie, it comes with so much history that one reviews it like wine, comparing it to earlier famous vintages; I guess that's part of the fun. This is a good one. Instead of summarizing the plot, let's tick off the Bond trademarks and see how they measure up: 1. Bond himself. Pierce Brosnan. The best except for Sean Connery.

He knows that even the most outrageous double entendres are pronounced with a straight face. He is proud that a generation has grown up knowing the term "double entendre" only because of Bond movies. There's real poignancy this time, because Q, the inventor of all of Bond's gizmos, is retiring. Desmond Llewelyn has played the character in every single Bond film since "From Russia With Love" in with the exception of " Live and Let Die " in , when the producers dropped Q after an insane decision that the series needed less gimmicks.

Llewelyn is now 85, and after demonstrating a few nice touches on his latest inventions, he sinks from sight in an appropriate and, darn it, touching way.

Guest stars. Who could replace Q? John Cleese , of course. Judi Dench is back for the third time as Bond's boss M, with the same regal self-confidence she displayed as queens Elizabeth " Shakespeare in Love " and Victoria " Mrs. Brown ". She does not condescend to the role, but plays it fiercely, creating an intelligence chief who actually seems focused and serious, even in the uproar of a Bond plot.

Sex bombs. Usually two major ones, a good girl who seems bad, and a bad girl who seems good. Both first-rate this time. Sophie Marceau plays Elektra King, daughter of a tycoon behind an oil pipeline linking the old Soviet oil fields to Europe. Denise Richards plays Christmas Jones, a nuclear scientist whose knowledge can save or doom the world.

I will not reveal who is bad-good or good-bad. Chase sequences. Lots of them. By powerboat on the Thames and across dry land, and back on the Thames and then into a hot-air balloon. By skis down a mountain, pursued by hang-gliding, bomb-throwing para-sailers whose devices convert into snowmobiles. By land, in the BMW. Under the sea, as Bond breaks into a submarine and later pursues a villain by popping outside the sub and then in again. Megalomaniacal villains.

There is a terrific early appearance of the arch-terrorist Renard Robert Carlyle. His oversized skull rises from the floor in a hologram, and then takes on flesh. M explains that a bullet in his brain is gradually robbing him of his senses, but that "he'll grow stronger every day until he dies.

Another villain is played by Robbie Coltrane , who gets mileage out of always seeming like he'd really prefer to be a nice guy. Not simply the oil field of Azerbaijan, but Frank Gehry's new Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, which figures in a nifty opening sequence, and the Millennium Dome on the banks of the Thames, which becomes a landing pad after a balloon explodes. Also a Hindu holy place with flames that never die.

Weird ways to die. How about vivisection by helicopter-borne rotary tree-trimming blades? Or garroting in an antique torture chair? Sensational escapes. There is nothing like a Bond picture to make you believe a man can safely bungee-jump from a tall building, after tying one end of a window shade cord to his belt and the other end to an unconscious body.

All of these elements are assembled by director Michael Apted and writers Neal Purvis , Robert Wade and Bruce Feirstein into a Bond picture that for once doesn't seem like set pieces uneasily glued together, but proceeds in a more or less logical way to explain what the problem and solution might be. Bond's one-liners seem more part of his character this time, and Carlyle's villain emerges as more three-dimensional and motivated, less of a caricature, than the evildoers in some of the Bond films.

My favorite moment? A small one, almost a throwaway. The movie answers one question I've had for a long time: How do the bad guys always manage to find all their equipment spontaneously, on remote locations where they could not have planned ahead? After the snow chase sequence, a villain complains morosely that the para-sails were rented, and "were supposed to be returned.

Roger Ebert was the film critic of the Chicago Sun-Times from until his death in In , he won the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished criticism. Sophie Marceau as Elektra. Desmond Llewelyn as Q. Robert Carlyle as Renard. Denise Richards as Christmas Jones.

Robbie Coltrane as Valentin Zukovsky. Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Judi Dench as M. John Cleese as R. Roger Ebert November 19, In theaters. Human Capital. First Cow. Into the Dark: Pooka Lives! The Hunt. Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always. Film Credits. Latest blog posts.

The case for the prosecution: mostly dull action sequences, a Bond girl memorable for the wrong reasons, an underpowered climax, and a plot thinner than a dieting ghost. Desmond Llewelyn as Q. Crazy Credits The opening credits don't begin until approximately 15 minutes into the movie -- the longest delay in the series to date.

Valentin Zukovsky. Christian C Super Reviewer. Back at the command centre, Elektra reveals that she and Renard are conspirators, and that she killed her father as revenge for using her as bait for Renard. The relationship between villain and henchman is more complex than usual, not to mention a little unexpected in its nature. Although it is the first major action sequence to be set in London unless someone tells me otherwise.

However, the article source scenes were viewed as lacklustre when compared to ones from previous js, so the credits were pushed back to appear after the boat sequence.

The World Is Not Enough is a typical Brosnan Bond movie, Full of action and not allot more, The plot is the same old story with another predictable outcome, Not greatly acted, They did cut down on here silly one liners abit which I liked, I thought Robert Carlyle fllm ok but here underused and should of been so much more fierce, A nice boat chase and a few more notable action scenes and stunts that make it worth pity the beautiful dana gioia but that's all we can take away from this movie I'm afraid. Bond thinks he knows where to look for answers.
