To most, this is the point where the Brosnan era started going downhill to a nadir of invisible cars and ice castles. I actually thought it was a lot of fun.

Of course having Bond fight a Murdoch-like media magnate (Pryce) who was as scary as a can of soup was an anticlimax, but his quest to stop madman Elliot Carver from creating World War III to give his media empire a boost.

Teaming up with a winsome Chinese spy (Yeoh) and a long list girlfriend who's now Carver's wife (Hatcher), James will have his hands as full as ever. It's got the right blend of action, gadgets and chicks I used to love from the early Moore era, and if you came of age with Live and Let Die and The Spy Who Loved Me - where things were already getting a little over the top - you'll have a great time.
