The World is Not Enough

When Sharon was in Washington D.C. over the Memorial Day weekend, Jack and I watched The World Is Not Enough. Released in 1999, this is the nineteenth spy film in the James Bond film series and the third to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond.

Bond is asked to play bodyguard to an oil heiress whose father was murdered in MI6 headquarters. The heiress was once a captive of a terrorist who is slowly dying and cannot feel pain. Unbeknownst to Bond, the heiress and the terrorist are working together to change the dynamics of oil supplied from Russia and Central Asia. The pair plan to explode a nuclear submarine in the Caspian Sea.

In addition to Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and and Dame Judi Dench as M, the film stars Sophie Marceau as Elektra King (an oil heiress who wants to make her mark on the world by sealing an oil trade route with a nuclear explosion), Robert Carlyle as Renard (a Soviet terrorist, Elektra's kidnapper and her father's killer), Denise Richards as Dr. Christmas Jones (a nuclear physicist assisting Bond in his mission), Desmond Llewelyn as Q and John Cleese as R (Q's assistant and successor).

I am getting closer to completing my quest to watch all of the James Bond films.
