    A splendid comic thriller, exciting and graceful, endlessly inventive.
  2. Despite a few places where the air of déjà vu is a bit too thick, it's a class act, with a textured script, one of the series' more stunning title sequences.

    The World is not enough is an average Bond flick with usual action and bland plot line, but nothing more to offer. The movie seems tired, and it shows in everything in it. Full Review »

    Pierce Brosnan does a great job at bringing the emotional side of Bond to this picture and the story is inventive and interesting, even if it is at times way over the top, but that is what I want in a movie. The villains in the film are interesting and the acting is great in this film (except for one Denise Richards, who is sometimes okay, but she has her bad moments). The action is awesome in this film and the music is perfect. I really enjoyed this film and the fact that they brought the more emotional side of Bond out. Full Review »

    It's a very average Bond movie with quite a lot of wasted potential, but yet I still have so much fun with this. I think there's a great relationship between Bond and the female villain. Nice sub-plot with M and I have to give credit to the boat chase in the pre-credits sequence. Though Denise Richards is one of the worst Bond girls, but who cares, it was a hell of alot of fun. Nuff said! Full Review »
