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

Uniform/costume errors: The uniforms worn by the Russian soldiers in the "present-day" (1995) part of the film (after the pre-credits sequence) resemble Soviet uniforms rather than the redesigned uniforms of the modern Russian Federation Army (the Soviet Union ended in 1991 and the film is clearly set in the post-Cold War climate). They are Soviet-style olive green rather than the darker shade of green used today. Ourumov's uniform as a General still follows the Soviet design, Soviet shoulder boards, inward-facing gold leaves on the lapels (as opposed to outwards like nowadays), Soviet belt buckle and he has a Soviet cap badge (red star with hammer and sickle). His cap also lacks the Russian Federation Coat of Arms that is now worn on the crown of Russian military peaked caps. The only Russian Federation part of his uniform is the patch on his left sleeve. The other Russian soldiers also still wear Soviet cap badges, including Xenia in her leather outfit during the Severnaya scenes. The ordinary soldiers (in the scenes following Bond and Natalya's capture after escaping from the helicopter) all wear red shoulder boards with "CA" in yellow letters, these mean Sovietskaya Armiya (Soviet Army).

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!
