    A bit weak, not as good as Goldeneye or TMD. 1 year 7 months ago

    The World Is Not Enough has a terrible reputation, and while it's not great, it WAS a lot better than I anticipated. The main problem is Denise Richards as the least believable rocket scientist in the history of science and/or movies (she could play one of the girls in a live action Danger Girl movie though). She comes in around the middle and stinks up the place, usually with blatantly obvious exposition. But I'd come to understand post-Goldeneye Brosnan was entirely too jokey, like the later Roger Moore era; that's not really the case. Everyone's on overdrive vis-à-vis death puns, sure, but Brosnan himself can be dead serious when his Bond is angry, and he's angry a LOT. Sophie Marceau is effective as an always disrobing femme fatale, though the henchmen du jour, whom I've heard called Bullethead (though not to his face) isn't particularly memorable. The action set pieces are fine, but aren't particularly memorable either (the boat sequence was fun though). But they're not terrible or silly either, is what I'm getting at. What struck me most is how much of this movie Skyfall poached! An expanded role for M, a new Q (glad to see John Cleese come aboard, but Desmond Llewelyn's low-key departure is almost too sad), an explosion at MI-6, the Bond family motto, etc. 2 years ago

    Underrated Bond movie with a complex story and terrific leading lady in Sophie Marceau. Action and setpieces are big and loud. Brosnan is very comfortable as 007 and really is at his best in this movie.

    Movie is hampered by the total miscasting of Denise Richards and the fact that Robert Carlyle isn't that exciting as the villian

    Exciting 007 adventure!
