At times it's slow and a bit too silly, but at its best, it's the worthy successor to 'GoldenEye' that Brosnan deserved.

What happens this time around? You know exactly what happens: Bond shoots people, has sex and saves the world. The beauty is, as with most Bond movies, it doesn't matter.

In a welcome return to the gritty glamour of such early outings as From Russia with Love, this 19th James Bond adventure effortlessly juggles a hard-hitting story with all the expected "super spy" embellishments.

We expect a rousing pre-credit sequence -- and The World Is Not Enough provides not one but two. Together they last 20 minutes and probably cost the GNP of an average Third World country.

And what of the actresses who have taken the one-way ticket to career palookaville as the Bond girls? Well, here is the real gem: Sophie Marceau, as glamorous oil heiress Elektra King, is terrific.

Whatever its flaws -- and it has some lulus -- it's a textbook model for how to structure action of this kind. The writers and directors of every Bond film should be forced to watch it before their first story conference.

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.

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