World Is Not Enough, The (1999)

The 19th Bond adventure opens with a high-octane boat chase along London’s River Thames leading to a fight on the Millennium Dome. From then on the pace never lets up.

worldisnotenough7While Pierce Brosnan returns as the suave secret agent, director Michael Apted moves away from the cartoon acting style of previous Bond outings and coaxes subtle performances from his cast, especially Robert Carlyle as Bond’s terrorist adversary, Renard.

Dame Judi Dench reprises her role as his boss, M, and Denise Richards and Sophie Marceau provide the glamour.

Even the title song by Garbage is a homage to the glory days of the franchise.
