Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions Presents Pierce Brosnan as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007.
|The World is Not Enough is an exhilarating but sophisticated, action-packed adventure. With insight and intelligence, the producers, writers, director and star Pierce Brosnan reveal a new and exciting dimension to a character that has been in the public consciousness for 40 years -- and the film further establishes Ian Fleming's legendary creation as one of the most popular literary and cinematic characters of all time. Pierce Brosnan returns as Bond, charged to protect a gorgeous billionaire heiress (Sophie Marceau) from the ruthless hands of nuclear-obsessed terrorist Renard (Robert Carlyle), who wants control of the world's petroleum supply.|
"You can't beat a Bond film for adventure on a grand scale. Howard Cohen, Miami Herald
"Sleek, fast-paced entertainment! Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"A thoroughly satisfying, completely entertaining film...ranks among the best. Mick LaSalle, San Fancisco Chronicle
"...a class act, with a textured script, one of the series' more stunning title sequences. William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Editor's NoteComplete with ski chases, casino hijinks, high-tech gadgetry, and sultry women, the 19th installment in the James Bond franchise features the increasingly at-ease Pierce Brosnan in his third appearance as 007, in a race to save the world's oil supply. Sophie Marceau (BRAVEHEART) stars as Elektra King, the daughter of a murdered oil tycoon, while Robert Carlyle (THE FULL MONTY) plays one of the most unusual Bond villains ever: Renard, who is unable to feel pain because of a bullet lodged in his brain. Director Michael Apted, known for such films as COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER, was brought in to make the story more dramatic and facilitate the addition of more complex female characters. One of the fruits of Apted's involvement is that M (Judi Dench) gets to move from behind her desk, while curvy Denise Richards (WILD THINGS) gets to show off more than her figure. Dangerous stunt work, exhilarating action sequences, and a rousing theme song from alternative rock band Garbage make this a worthy addition to the 007 series. The film also marks the 17th and final appearance of Desmond Llewelyn as Q; John Cleese is introduced as Q's successor, R.

|I’ll preface this review with the disclaimer that I am indeed aware that James Bond thrillers do not bear any semblance to real-life scenarios. I’ll also say that since I was a kid I’ve been a huge Bond fan. And I’ll also say that The World Is Not Enough is one of the worst Bond films to come along in years. What’s to fault? Look no further than the story, the product of three screenwriters who appear to have reported to a committee that mandated no fewer than one bad pun every two minutes....read the full review|
