This two and a half hour James Bond film was made in 1999 and is still exciting today. The film starts in Spain where Bond goes to find who killed a fellow British agent. It begins with the usual innuendos. A beautiful woman accountant asks 007, "Do you want to check my figures?" Bond looks at her and replies, "I am sure they are properly rounded." There is the traditional opening long chase, this time after a beautiful girl, in boats, on water, under water, and on land, with the usual large number of destructions. The chase ends when the woman jumps from the boat on an air balloon with Bond hanging on as it ascends. She is about to blow herself and Bond up, when Bond promises her that he will protect her if she gives herself up, She replies that no one can protect her from "him," and kills herself. Bond jumps to safety.

Bond returns to find that a friend of M, a very rich man, is killed in her building, leaving a beautiful daughter, Elektra, who had been kidnapped by a man who one of the agents had shot in the head, but Elektra was now free. The man lived but lost all his senses, including feelings and pain. The daughter says she will continue her father's work of building an oil pipeline.

There are many attempts to stop the building of the line, several more long exciting chases, M is captured, scenes of sex between Bond and women, lots of gun fights, the usual use of gimmicks that save 007's life, and, of course, the end sex scene.

Omega Seamaster Dual Laser/Grappling Hook Watch
Ever since I was a young boy I have always been enamored by fine watches.  So, ever since I was a kid, one of the alluring elements of Bond movies for me was to observe which types of watches were being used, especially by Bond.  As I matured I found that I share many of Bond’s predilections for enjoying the “finest” things life has to offer.  I think a fine watch is part of the character makeup for depicting Bond as a suave and “smooth operator.”  …

Boring and cliche ridden Bond movie and that is saying something. Bond must protect and oil heiress from her old kidnapper.

Elektra screws Bond with a medieval torture chair
You know with Connery and Moore, they're third movies were really the charm and were huge hits over their other movies.  Shorty after this one came out, Entertainment Weekly ran an article called KILL BOND NOW!!!  The third time was not the charm for Brosnan as far as I'm concerned.      Bond's mission is pretty mulilayered and holding some depth with the murder of a construction company head who is building an oil pipline across Europe.  Fearing the …

About this movie


The World Is Not Enough (1999) is the nineteenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the third to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film was directed by Michael Apted, with the original story and screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Bruce Feirstein. It was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

The title The World Is Not Enough traces its origins to the English translation of the Latin phrase Orbis non sufficit, revealed in the novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service and its film adaptation to be the Bond family motto. The film's plot revolves around the assassination of Sir Robert King by Renard and Bond's subsequent assignment to protect King's daughter, Elektra, who had previously been held captive by Renard. During his assignment, Bond unravels a scheme to increase petroleum prices by triggering a nuclear meltdown in the waters of Istanbul.

Despite the film's mixed critical reception, it earned over $361 million worldwide.
