So-so Bond entry is racy but also fun.

There's plenty of action and typical Bond elements to be found throughout, but the execution felt a bit generic to me. It also doesn't help that Denise Richards drags the movie down every time she appears on-screen.

The movie is better than you've heard, although that's not saying a lot.

This keeps one reasonably amused, titillated, and brain-dead for a little over two hours.

Although it sprinkles in a fair amount of character-centred plot, it doesn't really go that far beyond the call of duty. Still, with plenty of the usual Bondage, you can't go far wrong.

One of the worst James Bond movies ever.

Nick Rogers

Austin Powers seems to have made the Broccolis gun shy about letting Bond have too much fun, lest "World" be mentally lumped alongside an aggressively bawdy parody. Sterile, sluggish and halfheartedly suspenseful, it's the second-worst 007 film ever.

Though in story The World Is Not Enough is not one of the best Bonds, pound for pound it delivers as much thrilling action as any of them. [Blu-ray]

The theme song is performed by Garbage, as the band's name perhaps tells you all you want to know about this thriller.

The latest James Bond flick falls as flat as Tomorrow Never Dies, with decent action sequences and bad soap opera acting.

The film tries very hard, and sometimes the effort pays off, but overall this is a compromised effort that recalls LICENCE TO KILL in the wrong way: it wants to be different but lapses back into the same old, obligatory set pieces.

...ultimately comes off as a superior James Bond adventure...

Brosnan and Carlyle breeze through an upper mid-league Bond that doesn't attempt to fix what isn't broken.

Sees 007 undone by villainous scripting and misguided casting and acting in a couple of key secondary roles.

I liked it better than GoldenEye, but not as much as Tomorrow Never Dies.

Apted ensures it all passes by efficiently enough. And his extraordinarily well staged opening salvo is one of the most impressive Bond sequences yet.
