A marked improvement from Tomorrow Never Dies (though not a difficult feat), The World is Not Enough features an excellent Bond title, a good theme song and the second best Bond girl of the Brosnan era in the beautiful Sophie Marceau (Famke Janssen's Xenia Onatopp being first). On the other hand it also has one of the worst Bond girls in the entire franchise with Denise Richard's character Dr. Christmas Jones. This has been something that has plagued the Pierce Brosnan films after Goldeneye. Terrible Bond girls either because of bad casting decisions, poorly written dialogue or a combination of both.
As we enter the beginning of the CG era with TWINE, we start to see only some of what is going to eventually haunt the franchise forever in "Die Another Day". There are a few scenes with pretty dated CGI that understandably does not hold up to the test of time. On the improved side of things, we finally get a legitimized Bond villain again, one who is formidable,...
If you are a Brosnan fan, it's an ok film. Co-stars Coltrane and Marceau turn in good performances. Good introduction to John Cleese as "Q". Sad to see Desmond Llewellyn bid us farewell. My big beef is with the choice of Denise Richards. Movie starts off well. I remember being shocked at the explosion at MI headquarters when viewing at the theatre many years ago. And it's good ride - the way many Bond movies stick to the formula...for the first half. But Richards' is more wooden than should be. It is my least favorite of the Brosnan-era Bond movies.
It's James Bond, as we all know older Bond films were a bit cheesy, my 11 year old said" what with all the bombs, there's a money bomb, a pen bomb, a car bomb, a wig bomb, a watch bomb, a bra bomb, a shoe bomb, and of course Denise Richards, the biggest bomb of all.
