Storyline

Pierce Brosnan gives one last mission as James Bond 007. Starting off in North Korea, Bond is betrayed and captured. Fourteen months later, Bond is set free, but traded for Zao (Rick Yune) who was captured by MI6. When back in his world, Bond sets off to track down Zao. Bond gets caught up in yet another scheme which sends him to millionaire Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens). Another MI6 Agent known as Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike) is also posing as a friend of Graves. Bond is invited to a presentation held by Graves about a satellite found in space which can project a huge laser beam. Bond must stop this madman with a fellow American Agent, known as Jinx Johnson (Halle Berry). While Bond tries to stop Graves and Zao, will he finally reveal who betrayed him? Written by simon

Trivia

The futuristic weapon that Colonel Moon (Will Yun Lee) used during parts of the chase after the opening sequence really existed when the movie was made, at least in prototype form. It's a Heckler & Koch O.I.C.W. (Objective Individual Combat Weapon), a weapon developed as the future's infantry assault rifle as part of the U.S. Army's "Soldier 2000" program. It consists of a grenade launcher mounted on top of a "regular" 5.56mm (.223) caliber assault rifle, as well as a digital camera within the optic sights. This digital camera is supposed to be linked to a display within the soldier's helmet, enabling him to look and shoot around corners, as well as transmitting live footage of a combat situation to his troop commander or a higher superior.

Crazy Credits

In the traditional walk-and-shoot opening, the bullet Bond fires can be seen shooting towards the camera - meaning that Bond has shot up the gun barrel of his opponent! See more »

Alternate Versions

While their English voices and dialog remained unchanged, all of the Korean spoken by the characters was redubbed in the South Korean release to cover up their poor Korean accents. See more »

Bad James Bond
31 December 2019 | by qesfarjoSee all my reviews

More of a comedy or lameo attempt at one than a James Bond movie. Moreover Halle Berry is shorthaired and not feminine or attractive. At least she is thin, I will give her that!
