Storyline:

Pierce Brosnan gives one last mission as James Bond. Starting off in North Korea, Bond is betrayed and captured. 14 months later, Bond is set free, but traded for Zao who was captured by MI6. When back in his world, Bond sets off to track down Zao. Bond gets caught up in yet another scheme which sends him to millionaire Gustav Graves. Another MI6 agent known as Miranda Frost is also posing as a friend of Graves. Bond is invited to a presentation held by Graves about a satellite found in space which can project a huge laser beam. Bond must stop this madman with a fellow American agent, known as Jinx. Whilst Bond tries to stop Graves and Zao, will he finally reveal who betrayed him?

One review

  • Pierce Brosnan’s last outing as James Bond is also his best. Well, half of it, at any rate. At last, someone remembered that James Bond is a spy, and the first half deals with some serious spy-type business – imprisonment, escape, lack of trust, serious jeopardy, and tracking down the true story behind what has gone wrong.

    And then we have an invisible car, an ice palace in which to drive it round and round, and fist fights on board a laser-beaming aeroplane. Oh dearie dearie me. The same lame comic strip nonsense which has infested the series from ‘You Only Live Twice’ onwards is trotted out again, and the wonderful freshness of the first half crashes and burns.

    I liked the nods to all the earlier films, and Halle Berry in a bikini is always worth looking at twice, but I regard this movie as an opportunity wasted.

    Thankfully, ‘Casino Royale’ did not make the same mistake!
