Review this movie
RyanM.Oct 26, 2002These Bond movies just keep getting lamer and lamer, and it's hard to believe that if this pattern continues, "World" will not be the lamest.
JoeC.Aug 8, 2002This movie was the worst Bond movie I ever saw. Denise Richards cannot act and the end sequence with the sub was so boring I fell asleep at the theatre.
The latest 007 extravaganza has enough plot developments, double-entendres, emotional underpinnings and, of course, Bond girls, action scenes and explosions to furnish at least a couple of Bondfests, with plenty left over for an episode of Nash Bridges.
There's nothing special, shocking, or precedent-setting about the film, but it functions on a level that 007 fans will appreciate - as eye and ear candy for those who prefer action to exposition and character development.
The World Is Not Enough is, without a doubt, a solidly entertaining chapter in the Bond franchise's chequered history. But while Apted fiddles with the format, this is far from an overhaul of the blueprint, and so lacks the whiff of freshness long-time fans may have been sniffing for.
