The World Is Not Enough (1999) – A Review
Pierce Brosnan returns for his third performance as James Bond in 1999’s The World Is Not Enough directed by Michael Apted.
Her father murdered and after having survived a kidnapping nightmare, Elektra King (Sophie Marceau) a beautiful oil heiress, is once again targeted by her kidnapper the notorious terrorist Renard (Robert Carlyle).
A bullet lodged in his head has made Renard an especially dangerous threat that he now no longer feels any physical pain. Vowing to finish her fathers construction of her family’s oil pipeline, Elektra refuses to be intimidated and is determined to see it to its completion no matter what the risks. M (Judi Dench) has her own personal reasons to make sure Elektra is safe and assigns 007 to protect her.
Bond begins having his own feelings towards Elektra and soon stumbles into a world altering situation with submarines and nuclear warheads. He encounters one of the most unique casting decisions in the series with a nuclear physicist by the name of Christmas Jones (Denise Richards), the return of Valentin Zukovsky (Robbie Coltran), one of the hottest women ever who will forever be known as the Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta), a new quatermaster being groomed with the name of R (John Cleese), plus a final good-bye to Desmond Llewelyn as Q.
