One of the problems that has dogged a number of bond films is the sense of there being nothing really at stake during the action set-peices. Here we get a mixed bag in that regard as in some cases the action and jeopardy wash over you totally unaffectingly and at other times it all gels and is very affective indeed. A decent plot, but Brosnans's performance is both good, bad and irritating in equal measure. Despite the filmmakers best efforts, somehow the movie comes off feeling a bit flat. On the whole it's an OK movie but not anywhere near my top 10 in the franchise.

160701: 19th Bond Film. I still don't see the appeal (see my other Bond ratings). Though there are a couple beautiful women in this film, Elektra (Sophie Marceau) and Christmas (Denise Richards), and almost reasonable action, The World is Not Enough fails for me like most other Bond films. Other than Live and Let Die (1973), I've yet to rave for 007. Robert Carlyle as the emotionally liberated villain Renard, and Goldie as Bullion, have to be my favourite characters. I found Bond surprisingly more emotional than usual, perhaps to offset Renard? Features the best boat chase scene since Live and Let Die though the fan powered snow machines sucked. 3 at best.

WHAT I LIKED: Like 'Tomorrow never dies,' this film is packed with fun, whilst Brosnan's severe persona balances out any Moore-like cheesiness. In this instance these contrasts feel even less at odds thanks to an all-round improvement on Brosnan's part. It also packs a few good character through-lines and some great action to match; accumilating at the end with a great pay-off and a nice balance between spectacle and stuff to make you care.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The plot is just so unneccessary, and as a result it requires a set-up as long and dissengaging as any in the series - and some of it's worst writing too. I'll bet you wont care for much until you're at least one hour in...
VERDICT: The right balance between the fun of the previous, and the seriousness of 'Goldfinger,' It's just a shame Brosan's penultimate outing didn't have the plot to match.

Another pot boiler Bond. There are some decent Bond moments and action scenes but the villains are pretty forgettable and Denise Richards was woefully miscast.

Brosnan was easily the worst bond

Most definitely the worst 'official' James Bond film I have ever seen (haven't seen 'The World Is Not Enough', 'Quantum of Solace' or 'Spectre' yet) but still has its moments, and like The Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd, even the bad stuff is better than 80% of the other stuff out there. Still I wish it wasn't Brosnan's last one--and though Craig was truly a refreshing change in his realistic tone that hearkened back to the great days of Connery, that too got old, even for the actor himself.

This was very poorly planned and written. Madonna was awful but Halle Berry was one of the most memorable Bond girls since the series' glory days. Some of the special effects, especially near the end, were simply ghastly. As if the Broccolis had to pinch pennies...

Cool action, bad acting, this was....meh. Denise Richards was obviously casted for her looks!

3 out of 10:

The World is Not Enough has the qualities of being a bad film; choppy performances, choppy cgi, and a choppy story. It does have some good action scenes.

Not bad. Denise Richards is terrible but her part doesn't really make a difference to me. Some good action sequences. I liked the helicopter with the drop down buzz saw thing.

Good acting. Good movie.

Worst Brosnan film. Denise Richards does a pathetic job. Renard is one of the most obsurd villains ever. Are we in a Bond film or a comic book?

Pierce Brosnan is on the top of his game in the best film of his tenure.

A weak Bond movie that doesn't hold a candle so well in the franchise with "Christmas Jones" and predictable writing plus a outdated band playing the new song, The World Is Not Enough made me had enough of shitty Bond films
July 7, 2016
a very fun action movie but it also come with what you would expect from over the top action movies for better or for worse but i still recomend this

The story is a little better than usual but not enough to blow people away. The action is pretty good. Bronson still sucks as Bond and is an ice man in this one.

It's really not bad. Denise Richards is pretty horrible, but she doesn't truly get in the way. And there's clever stuff that happens. And the double entendres are fun. I dunno I just like it

Its my favorite Bond film.

It has action, a very good story and all your typical Bond ingredients.
Though this a more slow peaced than films like Tomorrow never dies or the spy who loved me.
If you prefer the modern day films but with the vibe of classics like From Russia with love this is your film.
The performances by whole cast are great and Pierce has never been better playing Bond than he is in this flick

This is a pretty bad Bond film. Denise Richards is a horrible actor, the plot is a mess, the villain sucked too.
May 15, 2016
Pretty piss poor from Brosnan here in a hilariously over the top Bond flick symptamatic of Brosnans reign.
There's just too much going on, too many villains,too many gadgets, too many one-liners, too much cheese. It's as if Brosnan was trying to out camp Roger Moore but couldn't succeed.
