"As the countdown begins for the new millienum there is still one number you can always count on."
James Bond, the world's greatest secret agent, is sent once more into the breach in the name of Queen, Country, and a dry martini. In the 19th Bond adventure, 007 (Pierce Brosnan) must resolve a potentially deadly power struggle between two unstable nations, with control of the world's oil supply as the ultimate prize. Bond is assigned as bodyguard to Elektra King (Sophie Marceau), the daughter of a petroleum magnate who was brutally murdered, and is trying to foil the fiendish plot of Renard (Robert Carlyle), a villain who was shot in the head with an unusual result: he cannot feel physical pain, an apparent failing that proves to be a considerable asset.
This movie had great potential. The first action sequence of the movie was unbelievable. It captured me into the film. However, as the movie continued on, I began to lose interest. The characters were very one-dimensional. The submarine scene had so much potential, but it wasn't all there. Something was missing.
