A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
When a deadly satellite weapon system falls into the wrong hands, only Agent 007 can save the world from certain disaster. Armed with his license to kill, Bond races to Russia in search of the stolen access codes for "Goldeneye," an awesome space weapon that can fire a devastating electromagnetic pulse toward Earth. But 007 is up against an enemy who anticipates his every move: a mastermind motivated by years of simmering hatred. Bond also squares off against Xenia Onatopp, an assassin who uses pleasure as her ultimate weapon. Written by

The satellite dish at the end of the film is the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, which also appeared in the film Contact (1997). It took about ten minutes for crew to walk along the walkway from the periphery to the center of the dish. See more »
When Jack Wade shows up at the end of the movie, his helicopters don't make any noise until they are actually on screen. A helicopter anywhere in their general vicinity would have been making a constant, loud noise all the while. See more »

Sorry y'all. I think this is the best James Bond ever. Not only because Pierce Brosnan IS James Bond, or because it feels modern having a woman (and what a woman!) cast as M. Or even the fact that this film actually is just a little bit believable...
I love the feel of it. The part where JB races through ... Moscow, is it? I dunno ... with a tank is just superb.
There is only one thing I dislike: why oh why did they have to put the BMW in the film? They don't use it!It's in the film for only a couple of minutes, not even that. Product Placement at its worst. And it's such an UGLY car!
