returns in the role of the British secret agent, this time to bring
down a media magnate played by Jonathan Pryce. It seems that this
mogul wants to use his power in the media to cause world events to
happen, and take advantage of the aftermath. Tinkering on the verge
of obtaining nuclear missiles, almost causing a third world war
sparked by strife he caused between China and Great Britain, there's
no end to what he tries to achieve.
relatively weak entry in the James Bond series, which is very
disappointing considering the promise shown in the first Brosnan
outing, GOLDENEYE. Michelle Yeoh is one of very few nice surprises
as the first Bond girl that kicks butt, and the titles and theme song
by Sheryl Crow are nice as usual. It's watchable, and I suppose it
delivers the goods, but it never rises above the usual Bond ground.
Maybe next time folks.
