Running Time: 128 mins

The World Is Not Enough is a British film and is the nineteenth episode in the James Bond franchise. In this adventure, Bond and his companion must defeat a seeming unbeatable and evil weapons manufacturer, who is armed with deadly missiles that could destroy the world.

This was by far the coolest James Bond I’ve seen! The gadgets were fantastic, I loved the action and the special effects, and as usual, I thought Pierce Brosnan was great!

However, as with all Bond films, the story is a little bit predictable, and although this was still quite fun to watch, the whole thing was pretty obvious, and at points, completely and utterly preposterous and over the top, and although that’s most of the fun of James Bond, this went a bit too far.

In comparison to GoldenEye and Die Another Day, the story in this film was also much weaker, and less engaging, which was a little disappointing, but even so, it was relatively good fun, with some very cool Bond stuff, so that’s why I’ll give it a 7.1.
